Re: check elec brake system message and traction control and abs light on

have you gotten this figured out yet? mine was a wheel sensor. the deeler had to order it, the part, installed was something like $175 IIRC
In my case the tech removed the wrong sensor,and while doing so broke it, so i ended up getting 2 sensors for the price of one

Re: check elec brake system message and traction control and abs light on

no i havent. i changed the rear speed sensors hoping it would be one of them. then i took it too a local mechanic to reset everything. he scanned it first and it showed all four sensors bad. then he reset all the lights and everything and it just showed the front ones bad. but i was just wondering how all four could go bad at the same time. but thanks dude. you've given me a little hope.

Re: check elec brake system message and traction control and abs light on

I know this is an old thread, and I did not want to start another one. I have the same problem (less the parking brake light) with my 2005 accompanied by a "light grinding noise coming from underneath. I am going to have it checked out in the morning (29APR2014) and we'll see what they say.

Thanks to all for the information here.

You won't get grinding from any wheel speed sensor issues (though the tranny might stick due to poor info coming to the tranny from the speed sensors). If you hear grinding, depending on where it's located, it's probably the T-case, front/rear diff, or wheel bearings.

I had all the symptoms from the beginning of this thread (minus the e-brake light) and it turned out being my LF ABS wheel speed sensor. Dealer sensor was $40 and I spent about an hour on the replacement. Surface rust made the job a bit of a pain.
