how to fix it
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

generally its a air flow sensor (oxygen sensor) but a good scan tool with live data would be needed to verify if the sensor is working correctly

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That will make engine, traction and vsc light come on?
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

the engine light yes for the abs/ traction control a good scan tool with abs functions would be required to retrieve trouble codes just like the engine light

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
nothing to do with gas cap?
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

nothing at all with the gas cap

Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

THE ABS Light or traction control comes on when there is a fault in the abs system. When the light is on the abs system is not working..A diagnostic scanner - computer would be required to pull the trouble code and to diagnose./.The failed component would need to be repaired or replaced to get the light to go out. likley you have a wheel speed sensor or wiring issue to a sensor

if you can get me the trouble code..i can lead you to the cause of failure

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Replacing oxygen sensor is that a expensive job
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

usually a few hundred dollars
