My advance trac light comes on also check brake light come on , I change my brakes about a week ago , I bleed my brake last night. I had a little air in the back brakes , but not much but light are still on

For that message to come up there is usually an issue with the abs, like a speed sensor. Or a problem with the steering angle sensor. If you recently did the brakes I would check the speed sensor wires on each wheel and make sure it did not rub through the rim.

where is the speed sensor at on the rim
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I didn’t get that answer

The speeds sensor is attached to the brake hose. It is possible, and sometimes happens that it comes unclipped and sticks out and can touch the rim. Just inspect the inside of the wheels for signs that a sensor may have come unclipped and is touching the rim.

If nothing is obvious visually then the abs module is going to need to be scanned for codes.

Ok so I need to take in and have it put on a scanned the code yes

If you can not find anything visually wrong with the speeds sensor wiring. So many things can cause those warning messages you can just speculate as to what it could be. Usually an auto part store will scan the codes for free. But the engine computer AND abs computer need to be scanned.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
