SOURCE: Traction Contrl and ABS Light on

No, it is probably not related. Usually the ABS and traction control light is either a wheel sensor problem, located in one of the wheel bearings, or most likely in the wire harness from the wheel bearing sensor. Remove wires and spray clean with a good solvent electric spray, and check the condition of the receptacle. I have had these problems with my 02 AWD so many times it has become almost routine. GM really have a problem with this type of speed sensor in the wheel bearings. In the AWD model, it keeps the car in FWD if the ABS light is on for any reason. JUNK!

SOURCE: I have a 2008 Chevy Uplander. The Traction

The traction control system and ABS system both use many of the same sensors to operate. It's possible that you have a wheel speed or other sensor that is supplying an erratic signal to the control system which is causing it to turn on the Traction Control lamp. Because it can potentially be a problem with a part of the system that the Anti Lock Brakes system [ABS] uses and could be a safety issue I would have it checked out to see what the problem is. There may be a related service code stored in the system which will help diagnose the problem.

SOURCE: My stability system and traction

Hello Tip.

All three systems rely on some of the same sensors in order to operate.
In this case most likely is wheel speed sensors. By far the most common problem.
The system will need to be scanned to find out which is the offending one and be repaired.
Not all scan tools have the capability to read ABS systems. Make sure whoever you take it to has this available. Most good shops will have this.
If you have further questions on this, please ask me here, be glad to help.
Thank you for using FixYa.

The service stability light is on


It pertains to just what it says STABILITY. Your vehicle has a system that will sense if you are coming around a curve at about 90 MPH. It will automatically apply a light amount of braking to the proper wheels, thus hopefully eliminating you and your Uplander from flying off curve. With the light on as with any warning light , you must assume whether its real or not, that the STABILITY system IS NOT operating. Significant computer / sensor diagnosis will be necessary. Hope this helps
