Question about 2004 Chevrolet Impala
After backing up from a parking space or driveway, when initially driving forward, the "Traction Active" light comes on. This occurs in normal driving conditions, whereas it had never happened unless the driving surface was snow or ice-covered.
How serious a problem is this? Sometimes it affects braking, and once the transmission didn't engage properly when starting up from a stoplight.
The "traction active" light is a light that lets you know when a certain part of your Anti lock break system engages. Each tire has a sensor that detects a couple different things in the wheels. One of the sensors may be going bad and needs replaced. Any of these sensors going bad can cause those symptoms.
