    That is it is either the intake or exhaust camshaft position Actuator. The intake will throw a P0010 and the exhaust will throw a P0013. Heres some more info...

I fixed mine by pulling each and every fuse in all the fuse boxes and replacing them with new ones. the hhr fuses have a tendency to work loose and cause all kinds of little problems. i searched the forums for the answer to the traction control light problem and never found an answer that worked until i talked to a "shade tree" mechanic in my area and he told me to do the fuse thing. been a month now and no more problems.

Testimonial: "The comments I left are the solution. The fuse thing does not do anything. It's a red herring. I replaced only the one that's associated with P0010 and It's been months."

    For anyone still wondering, this is caused by the two actuators on the top of the engine. Read my comment above about P codes. This is a known fix.

07 pontiac g5, what does service traction, traction off. This light comes on. Car then dont want to idle, transmission shifts hard and jerks into gear. What does tht mean?

This is all electronically controlled by the PCM - engine computer an EBCM - electronic brake control module . An this will affect the transmission as well because everything is all hooked together electronically .
Engine Traction System Indicator
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) illuminates the TRAC OFF indicator when the electronic brake control module (EBCM) inhibits the Engine Traction System due to a malfunction in the Engine Traction System. The IPC receives a GMLAN message from the EBCM requesting illumination.
Your best bet is take it to a ASE certified repair shop or a GM dealer , Chevy , Buick , Cadillac . seeing how Pontiac isn't any more .

Engine light and traction control light on 2006 chevy hhr

Traction control usually uses part of your ABS brake system to function. Sometimes a dirty (or worn out) wheel sensor is the problem that triggers both "check engine" and "traction control"...This can be verified with the proper diagnostic meter, and many shops will perform this test for free...unfortunately the free check at the auto parts stores does not include reading the ABS/Traction sensors...sensor cost is about $65. sometimes they can be cleaned. Hope this helps.

Traction control on chevy hhr 2006

The traction control and transmission shifting would involve the body computer more so than the engine computer.
Have you had the body computer scanned for trouble codes ?

2006 hhr when it rains water pools in the pasenger side floor also traction control light comes on and off

Under the plastic cowl there is a rubber cover over the blower motor and cabin filter. May have shrank or been installed improperly during mfg. There is a fix available from Chevy. ( a larger cover) Could also be clogged sunroof drains if you have one. As far as TC light goes. It comes on when wheel spin is indicated. Usually if it is wet or snowy outside. If it is coming on randomly, there may be a fault and you should get it checked by the dealer. If this is happening, the check engine light should illuminate at the same time.

2006 Chevrolet HHR LT Problem

After searching around, I found several posts that suggested reseating all the relays and fuses under the hood. After checking, I noticed nearly all of them were not seated well. I pushed them all down and I haven't had the problem since.
