1994 Buick Lesabre, Traction Control Light

Check engine light comes on and stays on I had the code check and EGR valve was the only code that came up, I replaced it with a new Delphi brand one, ran the car for about 100 miles and light went out. Now the Check Engine Light came back on and also the Traction Control Light is now on. Does anyone Know what could I check to resolve?

    Thanks. I have also changed a crank position sensor and now the check engine light went out, but i still have the "traction control off" light that comes on shortly after driving the car a few minutes.

U will have to run the tests for the trouble codes from both lights, they are unrelated, but chances are the CEL is the same problem, the EGR valve, in any event without the trouble codes there are far to many things to turn either light on to venture a guess, that kind of diagnosis costs allot of your money.

From the symptoms of the problem and the precautions you have done i think its time to check the EGR valve.Clean your EGR valve and then put it again. How handy you are in ding this?

As the check engine light is on did you scan for error code which will help you more specific to locate the problem.

The traction control system has detected a fault and turned itself off. The system uses sensors at the drive wheels to detect slippage and lock the differential and provide extra traction for acceleration. While the fault light is on, the system is not ready to provide this capability.
The ABS system uses many of the same components to keep the wheels from slipping while braking, and faults often cause both systems to quit.
There are a few things the average person can check for and possible repair, but much of these systems require specialized diagnostics to repair.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6003525-abs_traction_control_lights and let me know if you have questions.
