    ABS/Traction Control lights

    I have a 2014 Mirage. Last night my abs and traction control dash lights came on and haven't got off. The car is running okay and the brakes are good any suggestions?

    You are going to need to have the error codes read from the computer. You could try a place like AutoZone who will do it for free, but normally ABS codes are not part of the generic OBDII codes that most inexpensive code readers can detect. But it won't hurt to ask.

    This is a wild guess...but the most common issue that would cause both of those lights to come on is a bad wheel speed sensor. If the computer can't tell how fast each wheel is turning, then ABS and traction control cannot function properly.

    Check your sensor connectors, especially at the rear axle Dennisrshelby. If I recall correctly Fummins found some problems with corrosion back there.

    I found the thread I had in mind:

    Check engine light P0498 (Evap wiring issue & soluton -- check yours)

    I just had a car come in the shop with a check engine light. P0498 Evap valve circuit. The wires at the lh rear of the car are broken where they go up behind the bumper cover. Easy fix, I didn't bother taking to the dealer. I used a few layers of shrink tubing and wrapped the wires in thick rubber hose to prevent this from happening again. I highly doubt this would be a problem for most other people as this car seems to be driven places most people wouldn't take their cars. The car only has 18000kms on it. I'll post pics when I get a chance.

    Oh and to clear the check engine light, I didn't bother using a scanner. I just started and shut off the car 5-6 times and the light went out.

    Be sure to look at that thread for yourself. Fummins has generously posted lots of photos. Though the problem he describes is for a different set of symptoms, I have to wonder if your problem is somehow related.

    Check what code/s you have first. No sense wasting time looking at one corner of the car while the problem is on the other. It's likely a bad wheel speed sensor like topfuel said. They are the most common problem for the abs light to come on though I've never had to change one on a Mirage.
