Most automatic TC systems will turn themselves back on the next time you start the vehicle (which turns the light off). If you pushed the button turning the light on and pushed it again right away and it didn't turn off there's a chance of a blown fuse, if you're lucky enough to still have the owners manual there should be a fuse map in the book telling you which one is for the TC system. Also the book SHOULD have instructions on how to turn it on or off correctly. If you don't have the book you may want to have someone check your fuses for you, unless you are comfortable pulling them one at a time to see if any are blown.
There is a possibility that there is a problem with the TC system. There is a common problem with GM vehicles between 2001 and 2005, there are wires that run out to your wheel bearing hub assembly for the ABS and TC systems, because of the way these wires are run there is a tendency for one or more of the wires to become pinched causing ABS or TC problems, it's a simple fix but may take a professional to locate and repair the damaged wire....
Your abs and traction control lights should only come on when you start to slide while breaking(ABS), and when your wheels spin in place when excelerating(TC). If those 2 things don't happen, which with some people they never do, you should never see the lights come on. Only when those mechanisms are in use do the lights come on. And they will always flicker as that is what abs and tc are, intermitant surges to break up the constant. ABS does this for obvious reasons...anti lock break, so when you slide, the abs "taps" the breaks in short bursts so they don't lock up. TC "taps" the exclelrator when it slips. Those "taps" are what trigger the lights on your dash, which is why they flicker and don't stay on.
for some reason it is not charging the battery, I would say alternator(take it to an auto parts store and they can check it out for free) but since it is new does not mean good. The only other thing is that the belt(s) are loose. I hope this helped Tim
every time that light stays on it means that the ABS sistem is disabled...if theres a problem with the sistem it disables itself for safety...so you need to take the car to have it checked and figure out what is wrong, that light is there to let you know theres a problem and now the sistem is disabled so u need to have it scanned and diagnosed. hope this helps
had my 2000 chev impala 3.8 liter ,traction control llight and abs light both go on the reset it and go right back on .so i replaced both sides of the bearing hub assembly this is connected the senser,so far so good.replaced it dec 21 2009 about 3 hours ago. because the assembly came appart when took off.
When people tell me they hate there ABS, alot of people who pull trailer do. I tell them just to pull the fuse this will stop them completely. Yeah theres a light ont he dash but that can alos be delt with by removing the bulb for it. But int he long run just pulling the fuse is quick and Free.
