Question about 2006 Cadillac CTS
When i go to take off in icy or snowy conditions i can hear a grinding in the back end if and when my tire(s) spins freely making almost impossibe to get traction
You can thank the Federal Govt for the Trac Control that is
imbeded into the ABS Braking System
I have that on my 2004 Lincoln LS & sorry I ordered it
On snow it cuts off injectors & slams on rear brakes
Total Waste & useless technology from my 1960's
perspective. I live in the US but grew up in Canada
so I have lots of experience in snow,more in NJ than Ont
I have yet to figure a way to disconnect it using the wiring

The tire pressure monitor detects any changes in the tire inflation
pressure. Therefore, it must initialize and store it in its memory if
the tires or wheels have been replaced, re-inflated or the tires have
been rotated. You should be able to re-initialize the system by following these
1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure
2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.
3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.
4. initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much!"
SOURCE: abs light/traction control light
You can check out what the trouble code is by pushing and holding the information button and the up arrow (right side of instrument cluster above the radio) until all the instrument clusters light. Press the information button (last) to enter test mode. I've had an error C1234, meaning Left rear wheel sensor fault. I found the problem to be a corroded connector under the chasis just under the rear left door about 2 feet in. I had to by-pass (replace 1 wire due to corrosion at the connector.
