Question about 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan
When I turn the car on, the ABS/Traction Control/BAS & Brake light stays on. I checked the brake fluid, & it was a little low, so I added a little. Lights stayed off for a few minutes, then came back on. Brakes are working fine. Any suggestions? Safe to drive? Thank you!
It is safe to drive. You need a scan tool to get a code out of it. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor going bad. All of these lights will work together normally. The traction control uses the ABS to gain traction, and the Brake Assist System is part of the stability control. Also uses the ABS.

Clockspring is the problem, disconnect battery 15 mins. carefully remove air bag and steering wheel. now you have access to change part. should take 1 hour. be careful and take your time. not hard to do.

You have a leaky brake line somewhere. You will need to find and repair it. If you don't see any lines that are wet, you may have to pull the rear brake drums to check the wheel cylinders. They can also start to leak but are not as likely as a line. If your truck is a standard it's possible that your hydraulic clutch uses the brake master cylinder as a resevoir so check that line as well. A soft pedal would suggest that isn't the problem but if the fluid was low enough air could get into the lines. Hope this helps.

Hi, these systems are all linked together. Most commonly, one of the wheel speed sensors is not reading or is reading incorrectly. This can also occur on slippery surfaces where one or more wheel slides enough to cause the sensor to drop the signal, but not enough to meet criteria for an abs or esp episode. If the light comes back every time you turn on the ignition, there is a deeper problem.
The system has detected a fault in the electronic stability program - brake assist system. You have an electrical connection at the rear wheels secured to the inside of the brake area and are viewable from under the vehicle. It is a small wire harness running to each wheel. Grab the connector and wiggle it around, and make sure they are tight. Due to the connector being mounted low to the ground, sometimes they become dirty or corroded, not making contact. Do this on both sides and see if the lights turn off.
If the light does not turn off, you have to replace dynamics sensor, which is mounted UNDERNEATH the center console in the car. There is a "lost communication to dynamics sensor" and "low voltage to dynamics sensor supply"..

Stop using it and have it diagnosed and repaired
Don't mean to be hurtful here, but you surely have to
know you have several diagnostic trouble codes
present,as indicated on your dash
Those type of lights have been on vehicles for
30 years now
Keep driving it, and you will possibly start to do
some expensive damage or have an unsafe vehicle
