2006 chevy impala traction control

I hit the traction control button and the written dummy light said that the traction control was turned off but it wasn't actually turned off. No difference in performance and the symbol dummy light stayed on. Now the written lights rotated between "traction control off" and "reduced power to engine" and "service traction control." So, I parked the car, shut down the engine. Waited a few seconds, restarted the car, and tried to turn the traction control off again. Same thing. The written dummy light said it was off, but it wasn't off. Still had reduced power, symbol dummy lights, all things.

Reduced power is a problem with electronic throttle contol . drive by wire . Do you know what this is ? Taking the vehicle an having it hooked up to diagnostic tool an checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes is always a first step when trying to find the root cause of any trouble light ! And not auto zone , pep boys , or advance auto parts . Thier diagnostic tool will not check codes in all system control modules .

DTC P1516 Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance

Your vehicle has an electronic throttle body unit so it uses voltage signals to control throttle blade in the throttle body. There are a few different issues that can cause this problem.

First off there is a update for the PCM to address those codes, but you will have to take it to the dealer for that.

Second there is issues with the actuator on the throttle body binding up and causing the codes.

Third there is a yellow wire coming off the throttle body connector that breaks inside internally and cannot be seen to the naked eye. The best way to test that is to grab the wire about 5 inches from the connector and tug if it feels spongy or breaks, that

Usually many models with different equipment, they use the same dash to reduce parts inventories, as a result, you may have unlit "accesories" because your vehicle does not have them. The vehicle has a self check phase when you first turn the key to the "Run" position. Everything you car is equipped with that has a monitor light will light up. you may see bleedover light slighlty illuminating things that are not in your vehicle, but they may be used in other vehicle trim levels. You will know for certain when a light bulb is directly beneath the indicated item..

If the lights light up for traction control for example; when you first turn the key to the Run position, your car is equipped with it. If it has it and the light did not light when the wheels spin, there may be a sensor malfunction that should be checked..

Have a 2004 Chevy Impala recently purchased used.


sounds like you have a wheel hub out causing the lights to come on. odds are it would be the front left. it's not sensing right causing the traction control to be turned on. or it could be a loose wire for that hub. gm cars has had a problem with these two issues.
