Question about Pontiac Montana SV6
I have only had to car since monday, but it has happened several times already. Shortly after I start driving the ABS light and the TC lights both come on and it says "service stability system" and "service traction control" on the display. Also sometimes when I back out of the driveway and put the car in drive I hear a noise and the display says "traction control active" Any idea what could cause this I just bought this car and it drives great other than these issues. The warnings go off after turning the ignition off and back on. They stay off too. Thanks

You have a broken wiring harness to one of the front wheel sensors. This is a very common problem. You'll have to have the abs codes read to know which side, and then you can either repair or replace that piece. As the front wheels swing back and forth as you steer, the wires leading out of the fender well to the wheel hub fatigue and break inside the insulation, making it almost impossible to see from the outside where the break is. If you have an ohmmeter and are handy with tools, you can check each front harness for contnuity while wiggling it. This is a little tricky, but it will work if you can't find a way to read the codes.

All are tied into the ABS system, traction as well as stabilization, This needs to be looked at by someone who can hook up a diagnostic tester to read the fault codes stored in the ABS system then perform the correct diagnostic procedures to isolate the problem

ABS and traction control issues are common on these years of GM (late 90's, early 00's) and can usually be traced to something getting 'caught' on the sensors (look like sprockets)-take the car to a high-pressure carwash and have the undercarriage cleaned, or do it yourself at he places that have hand-held wands. Even a heavy concentration of dust on those sprokets can cause this.

well this is a sensor problem. just cause you didnt get a fault code dome mean that the sensors are ok. Remove the abs Fuse from the fuse box under the hood. Drive the car and get a feel for the braking. Replace the fuse and drive again, you will notice one or more of the wheels dont hold as it fast or faster than the rest. Replace that sensor.
