Traction is trying to engage which makes the sound. Can be a loose or dirty connection at the wheel (tiny plug) but will often recur. We gave up after have this fixed 5 times. The wires are just too short for the traction control system, so when you turn the wheel,. they start to pull apart. Do not have computer board replaced as it will only solve the problem for a few days!

2006 Buick rendezvous traction control alarm going off periodically and service traction control system soon lights turn on. Also lights indicate that my abs and parking brake have been disabled

Need to get the codes read. Probably a bad wheel speed sensor which will require a replacement wheel hub assembly. All of those systems rely on the wheel speed sensors to operate properly. The brake light is not indicating that the parking brake is disabked, rather that the is an issue with the braking system

2002 Buick Rendezvous Service traction system and ABS lights, grinding when turning ans braking

The ABS and Service Traction system may be due to bad sensors or signal reaching the ABS/Traction Control computer. The grinding may be due to uneven or unsmooth rotors, and/or worn out pads or shoes.

I would recommend that the entire braking system be diagnosed at your local dealer or brake service facility.

The Service traction system, abs and anti lock warning lights keep coming on. I just had 2 oxygen sensors and a wheel hub unit put in. What could be causing this problem?

When the wheel hub was put back in did they omit to connect the wheel speed sensor? The ECU continuously monitors with sensors the speed of the wheel rotation and compares this with the transmission speed. Any disagreement due to wheel spin results in power redistribution to those wheels with traction. If all drive wheels spin and get out of sync with the transmission then the ECU limits the power output from the engine until traction is resumed. Likewise when braking a locked wheel has the brake pressure reduced until minor rotation is again resumed. A missing wheel sensor will cause a failure of both the traction control and the anti-lock braking system

Just had breaks/rotors replaced. Car is still shuddering when breaking at times. Service light came on for traction service/anti lock breaks.Traction off light on. Any ideas? Did they actually replace my...

If the car shudders all the time stopping it could be a rotor out of round sometime this happens with new rotors, they should replace them under warranty. But if it is more like abs shudder then they could have damaged a sensor at one of the wheels, the sensors are used for abs and traction control.

Brakes shuddering, traction light on. happens at low speeds, usually during left turn with brakes lightly applied.

Have your brake pads and rotors checked sounds like you may need to have your rotors turned.

2002 Rendezvous, brakes feels like the ABS are working on snow, b

you may want to have someone look at your wheel speed sensors
the may not be reading correctly

if the computer see's that the wheel speed of the two axles are not in sequence when your braking this may cause the abs to kick in and it goes the same when your accelerating but the traction control comes into play(TC)

It is not recommended but you can disconnect the battery for an hour or so and the computer resets itself. If the problem is still there the check engine light will come back on after a short drive. The AWD light comes on when the tires have different pressures. I haven't seen the service traction light for quite some time on mine.
