2006 pontiac grand prix (base model) traction control light comes on and off

I let my sister borrow my car for the night and when I just got back into it, my traction control light keeps coming on and off as it pleases. When I hit the Trac Button nothing happens. But the second I shut the car off and start it back up it goes away for a few minutes.

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.

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

SOURCE: tach stops working and trac control light off comes on

It sounds as though your Crankshaft Position Sensor has gone out. They are pretty easy to change. You will have to remove your harmonic balancer/crank pully to get to it, as it is on the inside of the pully. Also, if you have a 3.1 engine, you have a second Crankshaft Position Sensor on the side of the engine closest to your firewall. (it is below the number 1 and 3 spark plug). It could be that one or the one behind the balancer. I would suggest replacing both of them at the same time. As for removeing the harmonic balancer, you should use a puller to do so. When reinstalling it, do not use a hammer or anything to tap it back on, as this can damage the balance and also the crankshaft. You should use a harmonic balancer installer to put it back on. Both the puller and installer can be borrowed from Autozone (with a deposit that will be returned once you return the tools).

SOURCE: abs and traction control lights coming on

Its the abs sensor, if you encounter an ice patch or snow you won't even be able to stop because the pedal will will push back and make the rip grind noise. If you pull the ABS fuse out, you won't have ABS but you can stop and you won't have the grind noise and back pressure for now. Its safer to not have ABS when the sensor is faulty.

What is causing My ABS/Traction control light to come on, On my 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix..the dash lights on comes on when I,am breaking but not all the time..


There can be several causes. ABS works by sensing the rotation of each wheel. There are videos on youtube that can help. A free diagnostic scan at some auto parts stores can help.
Here is a link to a video on youtube that might be of help. Search youtube for others.

Hello on my pontiac grand prix i want to changwe my brake pads but i dnt know if i have to be careful with the tire control system


Nope, the traction control system will not be an issue, just do not damage or strain any wiring, same as you would not damage or stress the brake lines.
