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.

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.

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.
