Q: Warning Lights on

asked by on

All of the warning lights are on while driving, including Traction Control, ESP, ABS brake, Airbag and EPC.

The vehicle may be having an issue where the alternator is not charging, due to a cable connection issue, causing the voltage to get too low to run these systems. The connections at the battery, body, or main fuse panel may be losing contact. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, scan the system for an accurate diagnosis of your Warning Light illumination issue.
