Hello, my name is***** am an ASE master tech.

When those lights come on the dash, it means that there are codes stored for those systems. You will need a shop to scan for codes, that is the first step at diagnosing your problem. You could also have separate issues, with the tire pressure light and the abs light. Either way you will need codes to correctly diagnose.

If you need more help, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service. You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question, this does not close out your question. Remember, in some cases it can be difficult to completely diagnose or help repair your vehicle without being there, but I try to give you the best possible answer with the information that I have.

Thanks Dan

I do not understand your answer,what does servicecontrol ctrl means and service traction control means please
Auto Mechanic: Dan, ASE Master Technician replied 2 years ago

It means you have a problem in the traction control system, the only way to know exactly what is causing the problem is to take it to a shop so it can be scanned with the scan tool.

Hello again Dan here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you’re not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. Please rate the answer, it would be appreciated.

Thanks Dan
