    But is it just the dashboard or do you also think it can be an electric problem?

You have to bring your vehicle in to the dealership to have the dashboard reprogrammed. They are the only ones with the scan tool for your problem.

    Most likely it will turn out to be an electronic problem with the dashboard. The dealership may be able to reprogram the dashboard, otherwise they may recommend anew dashboard unit.

Why does the traction control light turn on and stay on when I start the engine?


traction control and abs units both use the same wheel sensors
check for problem wires
run the fault codes to check for other areas and faults.

2008 navigator, wrench symbol on dashboard


Several autoparts stores like Autozone, Oreilys and Advance will scan your vehicle for free and tell you what Codes are present. The scanners are different, so the store would need a scanner that has the ability to diagnose the traction control system with the ABS.

The Traction control works with the ABS to limit wheel slip. Intermittent flashing of the Traction light can occur, sometimes the brake pads are worn and do not respond as well as they should. The system counts the RPM of each wheel, applies braking and can interrupt power of the engine.

See what the scan shows.

ABS LIGHT AND TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT STAYS ON


ABS = Anti-lock Brake System.
TC = Traction Control System (Engine Control Module).
If the ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ABS system is faulty. You must access the ABS & TC Electronic Control Units (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ABS ECU, in other words reset the ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

I suspect bad brake pedal switch, but you should scan the ABS & TC ECU's.

The antilock brake light on the dashboard will not go off.


If this car is older it is most likely a wheel sensor. GM put abs sensors on all four wheels built into the wheel bearings. If one of these sensors goes bad, your abs light, as well as traction control ( if equipped) will shut off and show low traction. Unfortunately, to figure out which one is bad, you need to have your car put on a chassis computer

Upgraded 456 gears on my Avalanche now having warning lights on


rubbish
the abs sensors stopped wheels not fast spinning wheels
when there is no signal from the rotor the abs kicks in and releases he brake pressure to that wheel/s allowing them to turn to give the driver steering control
as the abs and traction control use the same wheel sensor , the traction could detect a fast spinning wheel and take action to control it
you have upgraded the final drive ration to 4.56 from standard which will be 3 point something which will make the engine rev higher to get the same speed
and that could be where the problem is coming from as there is a connection between the engine rpms and the road speed and the preset parameters may be not reading the new settings from the new diff ratio

2001 olds ABS and traction control sensor issue


An ABS sensor DOES affect the traction control system. Traction control uses these sensors to determine if a wheel is losing traction. A bad sensor will cause both the ABS and TRACTION lights to come on.
The CHECK ENGINE light however is going to be a seperate problem.
