SOURCE: 2005 GMC Yukon Denali - Traction Control issue

your problem is the front wheel speed sensor. I had the same problem on my 2004 Denali. The GMC dealer felt there was nothing wrong, no codes. I replaced both from wheel sensors (about $75 each on Ebay) and the problem is fixed. The passenger sensor had a crack in it. I saw this solution on a discussion chat. There was a TSB for the 2002 pickup trucks with the same problem. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: when the traction control light

sounds like your alternator is not giving out the correct voltage or isnt giving out any voltage. computers need the correct voltage to work properly. if your alternator is bad and your battery gets drained then that could make the computer give funny codes and make it run rough. the simple test is to unplug your positive battery cable after you start the car and see if the car still runs. if it does then the alternator is working. if you have a volt meter you can make sure that the alternator is giving out between 12 and 15 volts.

SOURCE: 2006 Ford Five Hundred traction control light on all the time.

The traction light came on in my Ford 500 SEL along with the ABS light. If this happened, the problem was low battery power and a bad alternator. A fully charged battery fixed it for me after driving a couple of miles.

You may need a transmission flush, if one of the valves sticks in the transmission it may not make a quick decision to shift when in between gears. Worst case ...this may be a precursor to worse problems, like a transmission rebuild.

SOURCE: On my 2006 Ford 500 the traction control light came on

when this light stays on it meands that the electronic control module has sensed a fault in the system and has diabled the Traction control, to find out wha this fualt is requires a trip to the local Ford dealer for a fault code test of the traction control system and diagnosis of the code found in the memory of the system.

hello and greetings. you did not say what driveline options
were purchase when car was new. so, can not answer.
but if car is PT 4wd, I can. if not get it fixed, by any 4wd shop.

the car is full time 4wd or AWD ?
the Part time 4wd must not be driving on dry pavement.
so drive to dirt or grass or ice and then shift back to 2wd

there is a TSB from Suzuki on wind up.

sure , the 2004 options statement here. and the rules for PT 4wd.

Suzuki Grand Vitara/Escudo -full-time 4WD using limited-slip center differential, off-road 4WD with selectable center differential lock and low range transfer case 4 mode (4h, 4h lock, 4l n), traction control and electronic stability control
Suzuki offered as an option AWD for Grand Vitara's in 2004 (XL7 too) Some Suzuki AWD you can not use lock on dry pavement, so read the operators guide carefully.

While driving at a steady speed at around 60-80km/h, experienced a jerking motion for a fraction of a second, feels like the transmission is sliping but RPM stays the same, Noticed the problem mostly...

It was most likely the traction control kicking in. As long as it doesnt do it on a normal dry or wet road then it was a result of normal operation. Hope this eases your worry!

Have a 2002 crv awd .Which wheels drive the car. LIVE IN ARIZONA. Drove car first sow. Wife car formerly now retired I drive. Car was all over the road. auto trans. 63000 mi.

The AWD means All Wheel Drive. Sort of the same as a 4 wheel drive. All the wheels have power at the same time. In a slippery road condition, all tires/wheels can loose traction at the same time causing loose of control - which would be normal. AWD does not mean traction all the time in snow and ice. It still has to be driven with caution and respect to road conditions. Hope this helps.

This button turns the All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) function on and off. When the "TRACTION" light is on, the AWD function is on -- AWD should be on in snow / ice.

How fast can your drive in four wheel drive?

I wouldn't really take it over 25 MPH in low, and 45MPH in high. 4 wheel drive is for in times of poor traction and shouldn't really be used all the time. It is a supplement. Mind that if your truck is a manual your shifting will be need quite often. Also, don't use on dry pavement, or while making tight turns, This will damage the locking front hubs. If you have any other questions, please ask.
