'01 Chevy Venture, ABS & Traction Control Warning Light

Q: Both the ABS & Traction Control warning lights came on at the same time and stay on. Are these systems interconnected? In your opinion what might I expect from Chevy for after warranty repair service on a '01 Chevy Venture with 51K miles? Everything seems to be working okay at this time.

A: It wouldn't hurt to ask the dealer if there is something that they can do for you. But, if the vehicle is out of warranty don't get your hair all out of shape if they say no. The ABS system and the Traction Control system both use many of the same input sensors to operate. If a jointly shared sensor fails both warning lights will turn on. For the cause of the joint failure to be known all that has to be done is ask the system computer. As a rule it will gladly share the information to guide you to a repair. I'll bet a coffee that you'll have a wheel speed sensor failure. This has been the most common problem that we've seen on these vehicles.
