It is not recommended but you can disconnect the battery for an hour or so and the computer resets itself. If the problem is still there the check engine light will come back on after a short drive. The AWD light comes on when the tires have different pressures. I haven't seen the service traction light for quite some time on mine.

Why did the reduced engine power and service traction light come on. The car can be started then looses power and stalls out.

When the check engine light comes on it disables other module features as a safety issue. The reduced engine power light is normally caused by a defective throttle actuator motor assembly. In some instances, it can also be caused by a defective gas pedal sensor as well. In my experience, the throttle actuator motor is the most common repair

2002 Buick Rendezvous Service traction system and ABS lights, grinding when turning ans braking

The ABS and Service Traction system may be due to bad sensors or signal reaching the ABS/Traction Control computer. The grinding may be due to uneven or unsmooth rotors, and/or worn out pads or shoes.

I would recommend that the entire braking system be diagnosed at your local dealer or brake service facility.

The Service traction system, abs and anti lock warning lights keep coming on. I just had 2 oxygen sensors and a wheel hub unit put in. What could be causing this problem?

When the wheel hub was put back in did they omit to connect the wheel speed sensor? The ECU continuously monitors with sensors the speed of the wheel rotation and compares this with the transmission speed. Any disagreement due to wheel spin results in power redistribution to those wheels with traction. If all drive wheels spin and get out of sync with the transmission then the ECU limits the power output from the engine until traction is resumed. Likewise when braking a locked wheel has the brake pressure reduced until minor rotation is again resumed. A missing wheel sensor will cause a failure of both the traction control and the anti-lock braking system

Traction is trying to engage which makes the sound. Can be a loose or dirty connection at the wheel (tiny plug) but will often recur. We gave up after have this fixed 5 times. The wires are just too short for the traction control system, so when you turn the wheel,. they start to pull apart. Do not have computer board replaced as it will only solve the problem for a few days!

Traction system

You will need to find out which sensor you need. Have someone check the codes that are in there, and this will lead you to the fix.
