You sound like you have a computer problem on your car, as all this stuff would not go bad at the same time, unless hit by lightning or you had a major electrical melt down. You can try to disconnect fuses for the different systems you do not need and see if it will start and run, starting with the security system fuses.
\015\012
\015\012After that, I would probably look for a used computer and install it. It is located under the glovebox in the trunk and is pretty easy to change if you are up to it. They are not mounted in there very hard, and the biggest thing would be to find the same computer to verify that this is your problem. I have one for a 95 Eldorado and is probably the same, but I can't be positive on this. You might want to find out from a dealer. Most of the systems dhould be the same, but there could be some differences.
\015\012
\015\012It would be best to take it to a dealer, but they would probably want to order a computer to check it out and charge you for it, whether it fixes it or not.
\015\012
\015\012Like I mentioned, most of them computers are the same, and they do have a chip that can be changed that has the differences in your car programed into it. You could find a computer, change it out, then with the computer out, change the chips and try it again.
\015\012
\015\012This is a pretty big gamble, but for that many things to go wrong at the same time, it would be my guess that is your problem.

I have 1997 cadillac deville the abs & traction control and service engine soon lights are on. Right now I am trying to figure out the problem with the abs & traction control lights.

One was disconnected so I plugged it in and still have the lights on. I have another parts car but I don't know what to do next. Please help???

I have a 2008 Pontiac 66 GT. I live in northern ny and it is very snowy out the last few days. This morning before work, I started the car to warm it up and when I got in to leave 15 minutes later, the SERVICE TRACTION message read on the dash and the ABS light is on. It will not allow me to manually turn the ABS off, but the ABS is not working. Could this be something that needs to be replaced or just some sort of winter "dummy" light? Suggestions please.


It is quite possible that an abs sensor/wheel bearing may be bad.It is also possible that wiring to one of the sensors may have become damaged. There is a definite issue going on and not likely the light is on as a "dummy". The vehicle's pcm/computer ... 2008 Pontiac G6 Sedan
