It should have already a few times. Clear the codes with your scanner, the computer will save past faults in the memory, but it doesn't mean the problem is still there.

SOURCE: abs and traction control light faults after a brake job. 2005 Pontiac grand prix

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

Subject: Special Policy Adjustment - Catalytic Converter #05551 - (09/14/2005)



Models: 2001-02 CHEVROLET IMPALA, MONTE CARLO
Condition

My Grand Prix GXP is using a quart of oil every 1500 miles. It does not smoke or leak! What could be the problem?


If you're vehicle has high mileage you may be loosing oil through you're valve guides. you may not notice this as the catalytic converter would burn off the oil. Or check you're radiator if oil in water head gasket is ready for replacement.
