Angry More mystery.....

Well, I told everyone about my brake warning light, abs light, and TRAC OFF light. Today I HAD to drive my car. I haven't driven it in 3 days because mechanics are still clueless and still have no time for me. When I started it up all 3 lights came on as they did last week. Got the 3 chimes again before they all came on. I went down the road a few miles and then suddenly all 3 lights go out. After about 10 more miles, then I get 2 chimes and just the ABS light and TRAC OFF light come on. Just figured I pass this little tidbit of info along and see if this can add some clues to the mystery. I don't notice any difference in braking. The only thing I have noticed now is if I am at a certain speed and slow down to make a left turn I am getting a little noise sort of like a click. It does not do this all the time. I am getting so frustrated and tired of getting brushed off. I just need someone to LOOK at my car. Sorry just need to vent..........

I don't think that helped anyone diagnose your problem. Probably in the wiring or the computer.

Well we will see.... I just got back from leaving it at the dealership as they told me I could go ahead and bring it in and I am already out of over $300.00 just for them to diagnose it.

I had the same thing - would come and go - usually just ABS & TRAC, but sometime Brake as well - usually when wet - took it to my mechanic - replaced an ABS sensor and all is well....
