Abs light and advance trac light came on same time but truck

Customer Question

Abs light and advance trac light came on same time but truck seems fine ?

Hi. If the ABS light has come on then a fault with the control module or ABS sensors has been detected. What I would suspect is you should check the front wheel bearings of the truck. It is common for those wheel bearings to go bad. When they do, the wheel gets loose and the ABS sensor can not read correctly. Is checking the front wheel bearings something that you can do?

i can. Would that also trigger " service advance trac light " because both the abs & the advance trac light came on at the same time
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Yes. both system are effected by an abs concern.

To check the front wheel bearings jack the front of the truck up and shake the wheel up and down and check for play. Thank you.
