2006 Equinox Has ABS Traction Control Lights On
Hi thanks for taking the time to answer my question. I have a 2006 Chevy Equinox, that i bought new off the showroom floor at the Parks of Augusta, Kansas dealer ship. I have always had them do the oil changes and any service repairs such as the very expensive heater blower thing that every 06' equinox person has had. Now my problem is the ABS and traction control.
My ABS and traction light has started coming on and when driving while applying the brakes my actual ABS system would kick in and it felt like it was not going to stop. I feel that driving all the time now. I have taken it to the dealer ship to have it hooked up to the code machine, and i paid for a brake inspection.
Upon inspection i received news that it was the left hub assembly kit that needed replacing. I paid to have it done. As soon as i got my car back the same thing. I called the dealer ship and they reset the codes again drove it (had it all day 3 times now) and said it was fine nothing wrong. I picked it up and on the way back home FROM THE DEALERSHIP the ABS and traction light came on and when i went for the brake the abs system kicked in and it felt like it was not going to start. I called the dealer ship and they want my car and me to drive and see what the problem is. which is ok but i cant be without my car again and i don't have time to ride with them because I'm putting more hours in at work to pay for these repairs. Can you please tell me what is wrong?
Answer: If they keep getting the same codes for the same problem on the same side, then this may be a problem with the wiring harness to that side. It would help to know the codes that are in the computer. I would assume the codes are for one of the front speed sensor circuit. Either "Open", "Shorted" or wrong signal.
