ABS Traction ESC Problem Help!?

07 Redline w/ 55,000 miles...

Last night stopped at a store on my way home. When I left the parking lot, heard the warning bell and my ABS warning light came on. LED display started shuffling between "Service Traction" and "Service ESC"... then "Traction Off" and "ESC Off".

This morning, The ABS warning light was on. I drove for a couple blocks and when I turned, I could swear I felt the car shimmy. Then the warnings came on again.... I drove. very gingerly, back home. When I turn, I can hear a very slight scraping noise coming from the front right wheel area. Gonna take it into the mechanic when he opens.

Any ideas on what this is? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The symptom in conjunction with the scraping sound - seems to me that maybe your wheel speed sensor has come loose or been broken by something else that's come loose. You might want to try and see if anything is hanging off or loose down there first and tie it out of the way (if so) before you drive and break something else.

My bet as well: Wheel sensor is broken. Or a FUBARed wheel cylinder and that pad is dragging. (pretty sure the ABS would detect the pressure change in the hydraulic line and therefore you would have the same symptoms)

Thanks for the responses guys. Yeah, the brake disc came loose somehow and it broke the sensor... fortunately, that's all. Replacement sensor $350 + $100 labor. A lot less than I thought I was going to be out.

Not really. Once you're off the brakes, the whole system goes back to atmospheric pressure. It doesn't matter what's going on with the calipers.

On a more important note - the "loose" disc was most likely a loose wheel bearing. This is something that myself and several other Kappa owners have seen. I strongly suggest putting some Loctite on the wheel bearing bolts.

Same thing happened to me 2 days ago. Right wheel bearing assembly came off and damaged the ABS sensor cable. Bearing Hub $377.43 Labor only $50 so total $464.21. WTF? Do I have to put Loctite on all of my wheel bearing bolts?

Good answer! That's exactly what I'm going through now! I've changed my pads and rotors thinking that was the problem to no avail! I noticed some bolts were missing on my wheel bearings. 3 to b exact. I replaced them with aftermarket bolts and locktite. No probs yet! But, I still get service esc, traction off, and abs off.. I drive my car on a daily basis, and I race somtimes,(on a closed road in Mexico) so, maybe its the speed sensor? I I have noticed that I lost all control of my car since this problem started! Simple turns and handling has changed a lot! I almost crashed today during a simple routine turn on the throttle! I lost all controll of my car! Thankfully I didn't damage my sky! But, it was close enough to ask questions

Having the same problem with my 2008 Sky Redline. 40,000 miles. The ABS and Traction light keep flashing. Removed the brake fluid cover and put it back. That did the trick 6 months ago. Now have the same problem so tried it again. Lights reset for about 100 miles. Now go off and on. I am taking it into my mechanic and see what he finds.

Don't see original post but had the same problem at 44,600 miles. No error code and nothing broken. I had them squirt some silicon in area of bearing - they objected but did it anyway. Have not had a problem since!
Thanks Ed

abs and traction light fixed

I fixed the same ABS / TRACTION problem on my 2008 Redline by spraying a lubercant in the area by the bearing by each of the sensors at 40000 miles and now have more then 44k. No prblems since. My friend has the base Sky model and had the same problem. The spray fixed her problem also. I would try this first before getting ripped off by some repair zelous mechanic.
