Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
When the Engine Control Module encounters problems, it will also disable the traction control system. Scanned the ECM to know fault codes stored there, repairing this codes and clearing the codes will turn off the Traction indicator and allows the traction control to work once again.
If the Traction Control light is coming on, the traction control is activating and can cause a jerking problem. Nothing last the life of the vehicle, however the timing chain should not need to be changed at 49,000 miles. If it does, I would have them do it under warranty. See if you can get the codes and send them to me. That way we can get a better ideal of what is going on. Could you please tell me what these codes stand for?
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

I asked the mechanic when I got the new tires put on and he said this could be 'fixed' by repacking the bearings. This is plausible if one or more are dragging and causing the sensors to detect too much variation in the speeds.
Since the new tires have been on, only a few errors and not any lately even with a sharp turn. The temperature seems to have an effect.
i will ask more mechanics in the next few weeks and report.

I fixed my car. It cost me though. The problem was the coli pack. My car was misfiring, my mechanic checked the injectors and the cylinders, thankfully neither of those were the problem. It was the coil pack that went bad and caused it to misfire

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.
