It isnt real serious. could easily just be a loose wire or connection. It is very repairable. I dont know the techs there but I do know that we here are sent to schools that gm teaches on every aspect of the gm vehicles. Yours should just be a minor repair being it is brand new. My guess is that it is more from just sitting on the lot and will not be hard to repair. Even if they have to replace parts your vehicle should be the same as it was when you purchased it.

I had this problem with my 2007 HHR. I drove away with the service engine and the service traction light on. The car was stuttering through the gears. I took it back and they checked it. They disconnect some wires while they change the oil and one was loose. The service engine turned off but the service traction stayed on. We disconnected the battery for 3 minutes and it fixed the problem. Some of those other guys spent up to 300 dollars to fix the problem. Hope it works out for you.

Hello and welcome. the engine reduce power waraning is the key to the other problems. this is normally a problem with the electronic throttle system. the engine control module disables the traction control system when it detects a engine problem, in your case a problem with the electronic throttle system. you shouldnt drive with this concern. this is normally covered under the vehicles 100,000 mile warranty. you need to conteact your nearest dealer for help

SOURCE: the abs light is on
the abs light is on because it is telling you that the abs system has a fault in one of the sensors, also with the light on it means that the abs is disabled. the traction control and esc are on because they are linked to the abs
