I am having a problem with my track off & low brake fluid lights coming on when I make a sharp turn or sudden stop. I have checked the fluid and it is fine. What could be the problem is it the ABS sensors? Please help!

    If you are sure the brake fulid is full then you may have a problem with the fluid level switch or the switch trigger in brake fluid reservoir. If the float inside the reservoir is damaged and not floating correctly that could trigger the level switch incorrectly causing the low fulid light to come on erratically.

    pertaining to the Track Off light coming on, then going off, i would get the four sensors (one on each wheel)checked. not only do they operate the tracktion control, they also are used for ABS brakes and tire inflation sensory. my passanger side rear sensor died and i lost all 3. no more ABS, Tracktion control, or Low tire pressure warning. and you need to replace the entire hub assembly for any sensor that doesn't work (rear wheels anyway, not sure for front)

    I have a 2001 Monte Carlo SS and am having the same issues, trac off light, low brake fluid and brake lights are all on. Have had it checked numerous times and the ABS check yielded no codes (or at least that's what I was told) I'm going to take it to a new mechanic and use this info to get the problem solved finally.

    If one of the wheel speed sensors is causing your problem there should be fault code(s) stored in the ABS module. The fault code(s) should direct you to the sensor circuit causing the fault. Make sure to check all wiring and connection before replacing a suspected faulty sensor. The front sensors are part of the hub assembly as well as the rear. A faulty wheel speed sensor will normally turn on the ABS and the RED brake warning lights.
