Question about 2001 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Car will not move in reverse.

During an ice storm, traction control was activated. Now car does not go into reverse all the time. Was shifting hard after this happened, now it has stopped. Fluid is fine, wondering about an electronic problem.

2003 Saturn ION What is the trac for and when activated, why doesn't it allow the car to go forward. When going up a icy hill, it will not allow me to go forward.


Traction control. It doesn't allow the wheels to spin. Chances are all the tires are on the ice and will not move because traction control won't let them spin and put you into a bad situation.

My 2003 Chevy Tahoe has traction control. I noticed this winter when i was on some ice that the traction control light stated that traction control was activated but i could hear grinding and it did not...


It is not supposed to. The traction control gives power to opposing wheels and applies brakes in milliseconds to prevent total loss of control of the car. The computer immediately takes over and prevents 4wd that could send the car into a worse skid.. You are talking about ice which is very different from snow where traction is concerned. The grinding you hear could have been the anti-lock system being activated.

I have a 1988 Toyota Celica, after a snow storm and few really cold days(-53c with wind chill) I had tried to drive it but it suddenly would not shift our of reverse I believe it maybe be the cables


this a STICK shift. a manual transmission..... clear.

way up north and -53C is -13c more than car was designed to handle.
H3LL even gasoline fails to evaporate at that temp.
would not shift..???
does would not mean, the lever is stuck (iced) or it lever does move
but the transmission fails to leave, reverse.
2 different things.
and you can open the hood and see if the tranny shifter linkage does
move in direct relation ships to the shift lever.

the gear shift is cable linked to to the gear box.
on most M/T they must move, or is seized.
sure it can seize at -53C sure..... just look at it and see that.
if the lever moves, and the cable just bends. then the tranny
is just stuck , frozen.
just a little moisture and bam stuck. at shifter, cable or trans.

id keep a propane torch in car there.
sure would and use a heater garage at home. sure would.

my ASE friend in Alaska, does heavy equipment,
He flies to work in his private plane every day,,,,
and some times, they never turn it off. the engines.
and on some spray the whole lower engine and trans
with foam rubber so the engine can retain heat.
endless stories from him on topic.

my i recommend any ASE mech that can help there.
find one and ask him what he'd do, and do it.

My 2002 chevy impala's service traction light comes on after shifting from reverse to drive. it aslo seems to activate the anti lock brake mode at that time. it resets itself and does fine after


Check your brake sensors for debris inside the brake drum or caliper. This all depends on how your Model counts the turns on each wheel.

There are some Models which have a sensor in the axle and others which rely on the 4 individual wheel sensors.

When brake debris or rust "blinds" the sensors you get the problem you have unless it is a clearance problem with sloop in the differential.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Have you even looked underneath it, before you
ask a question?

The linkage on a vehicle that old is rusted away

Move the transfer linkage by hand, until you remove what is the
problem and fabricate what's rusted

We have had multiple snow storms and ice around here and recently the traction control light has come onand off and the car is still performing well why would the light come on now--- the vehicle is a 2002...


Does it come on while you are driving in these conditions? If so it is letting you know it is enabling the traction control, which means it is deciding how much power to let you have when you press on the gas.

What is traction control sistem


TRACTION CONTROL: An enhancement of an existing ABS system that prevents wheel spin while accelerating on wet or slick surfaces. It uses the same wheel speed sensors to monitor wheel speed during acceleration, but requires some additional control solenoids and a pump to apply braking pressure to control wheel spin. The traction control system brakes the drive wheel that's starting to spin to shift torque to the opposite drive wheel that still has traction. Most traction control systems only operate at speeds up to about 30 mph. Additional control strategies that some traction control systems use to limit wheel spin include reducing the throttle opening, upshifting the transmission, retarding spark timing and deactivating fuel injectors.

Hope helps.

your trans has lectronic controls to operate the shifting of your trans. If there is a defect, a fault code will be stored in the computer, called a DTC. You need to have someone with a scan tool check for the fault code. It is likely a solenoid that is not working or stuck.

Get the codes first. Autozone can run the test for free on engines, maybe trans codes too. Call your local Autozone or big parts store and ask them.

SECTION 307-01: Automatic Transaxle/Transmission 2001 Escape Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Transaxle Description The CD4E automatic transaxle is a four-speed, front wheel drive automatic transaxle with electronic controls for:
  • Electronic pressure control (EPC) solenoid for shift quality.
  • Shift scheduling.
  • 3-2 shift timing.
  • Coast braking.
  • Torque converter clutch control.
The transaxle features a four element torque converter with a torque clutch and a geartrain that includes:
  • Compound planetary gearset.
  • Chain drive.
  • Planetary gearset final drive.
  • Pinion and side gear differential.
The hydraulic control system of the transaxle has five solenoids that control:
  • Shift feel, through line pressure control.
  • Shift scheduling, through shift valve positioning control.
  • Modulated application of the torque converter clutch.
  • Timing of 3-2 shifts.
  • Engine braking during coast operation.
----------------------------
Solenoid Valve Body Assembly The solenoid valve body assembly contains the transmission fluid temperature sensor (TFT) sensor, as well as five PCM controlled output devices:
  • Electronic pressure control (EPC) solenoid.
  • Shift solenoid A (SSA).
  • Shift solenoid B (SSB).
  • 3-2 timing/coast clutch solenoid (3-2 T/CCS).
  • Torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid.
---------------------------------
You may need your PCM, Powertrain Control Module reflashed by a Ford Dealer.
Try disconnecting your battery for 1/2 hour and then reconnect and see what happens. It will run a little rough and shfit hard until it relearns your engine/trans characteristics.
Let us know results of tests and DTC codes if you get them.
