Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala
I have an 05 impala and every time its started the traction control light comes on dings a couple times and says "service traction system" in the info center on the dash and the abs light comes on too and stays on. I recently replaced the rear brakes and that is when the problem started. I believe I may have damaged one of the sensors for the abs on one of them. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
I have a 2005 Chevy Impala with both the ABS and Traction Control lights on. They stay on as long as the car is on. I checked bearing on both side and they're fine. BUT, I found that the wires to the ABS/Traction Control on the front driver side are broken. I've been looking online for a replacement. Anyone know how hard these are to replace? One side is easy to disconnect, the other side seems to go inside the hub on the inside.

I have a Grand Prix that is doing almost the samething one day it would all be good and the next the lights would be on. I replaced the front hubs since they were loose and starting to get noisy at hwy. speeds however this didn't fix my issue it actually got to be more frequent that the lights would illuminate and the system be disabled. What I found to be the issue is after removing the wiring from the lower control arm on my car and removing the split loom that cover's and "protects" the wheel speed sensors wiring was broken wiring clear as day cracked in half and when these wires would contact the light would stay off but as soon as they moved and lost the connection the lights would illuminate and the cycle start all over. These wiring tails are available aftermarket for far less then they are from GM Dorman sells them for around $30 each and it includes the plug however they do need to be soldered in and shrink tube installed to keep out unwanted moisture tape won't work.

The traction control works off of the abs.So when abs has problem traction is disabled. If problem started when brakes changed most likely one of these sensors. Check rear wiring and see if you can see any physical damage.

I have an '05 Impala LS and had the same problem about a year ago. Turns out I had a bad right front wheel bearing.
