Default Showing ABS light, Brake light, Traction light on Dash

Hey guys...... Ran into a few problems with my 04 PT Non-turbo.... Cant find answers anywhere..

Over a month ago I filled my tank ith gas and not even 5 minutes later my check engine light came on.. Before I even had time to pull the car over it stalled out.. Started back up and made it home, bucking pretty bad...... I got the car over to the shop and they determined it was the ECM that was bad.. They said the wiring harness was fine.....

After I got the new ECM that was programmed to my VIN number of the car, mileage, etc..... The Check engine light went out and the car drove perfectly fine... The only problems were the ABS, Traction Control, and Brake light were on it the dash.....The car does not have ABS and doesn't have a traction control button... I thought I got the wrong computer so the company sent me out another.. Same problem..... They sent another.. Same problems....... I don't know what I should do now.. Need to get the lights off..... Has anybody run into a problem like this????

Did you try taking it to a dealer? I tried a search and there's loads of help to get the lights to go off but nobody ever complained about the lights when they don't have ABS or traction control in the first place.

Check your brake fluid. I have no idea why you'd get extra lights (ABS, TRAC)

Did you do the key dance to see what codes were being thrown? I would only replace an ECM as a last resort.

What year car is it?

I talked to the dealer about the problem... Said they didn't know what the problem could be.. kept saying it MAY be a faulty computer but as I stated this is the third computer from this company...


The car is an 04....

I'm just guessing, but seems they sent you wrong PCM - for a car with ABS and TRAC

I would have thought that too but they sent me a total of 3 pcms and each time i told them it had no abs and no traction.

The ECM is probably correct, but incorrectly programmed. As 03Elect asked, are you throwing any codes??? You can take it to most any large chain auto parts store and get them to read your codes, I would suggest that. See if there is anything showing up. If not, they probably just have it programmed wrong, and if it were me, I'd find another stealership to go to, sounds to me like the one you're taking it to doesn't know it's arse from a hole in the ground.
