Service Stability Control, Service Traction Control, All Wheel Drive Off and Check Engine lights are all flashing. What does this mean and how do I fix it.

This happens 9 times out of 10 it will be a ABS wheel speed sensor. Here is a video to show you how to get the codes to see which one it is which a guide to help check them manually in case you don't want to buy the scanner for $50.00 on Amazon.

I had this warning this morning. It happened last year too, I took it to the mechanic and was told the power steering pump needed replaced. So I did that but it has apparently not taken care of the problem. When the warning came on this morning it also said "Service Traction Control" so I watch the video and found the right rear wheel speed sensor was bad, cost me 87.00 for a new one and the light went out.
Thanks!

Mechanic checked brakes, hand brake, fluid and all are fine. This problem just happened on a Sunday am. Was intermittent for 1 day (went off when engine turned off/on) but now is constant. What can cause this problem and is it costly?

Your abs has a code for a failure. You need to have the code pulled and a diag done to determine the failure.
Once the abs is repaired, the traction control will come back on line.

Typically the problem will be related to a sensor or its wiring. The place to start is by having the diagnostic fault codes read and recorded. This will need to be done by a mechanic with a scanner that can access the multiple computers. Those codes will indicate the circuit that needs further diagnosis. They do not say simply to replace a part.

Traction control and stability control lights are on. Could the sensor need cleaned and where are they located?
