Question about 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix
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.
Your sister damage your car ....... no ...... have to retrieve ABS faulty code first

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.

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).

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.
