SOURCE: traction active light

you have an ABS sensor that is miss reporting in a turn and causing the ABS to activate. You will need a scan tool to watch the wheel speed data and look for the one that is dropping out

SOURCE: traction active message is coming on

Your car has what is called "traction Control" when wheel slip is detected by the system it takes control of the brake system and stops the spin, some cars call this Stability Control, if the light is always on then the system has a failed part and is turned off by the control unit.

SOURCE: In the message board the traction active message appears

This will appear if the tires slip or spin faster than another,but should go off after the slip is done, if the light stays on then have the traction control system checked.

Do you mean 'traction control active'? There is no 'transaction'. Traction control is what keeps your wheels from spinning freely, like in mud, and instead activates 'traction' for your tires, helps them find 'traction' rather than going crazy!

MESSAGE CENTRE TC


TC = Traction Active

If your vehicle is equipped with the Traction Control system, this message will stay on a few seconds after the traction system stops limiting wheel spin.

This message will appear when the traction control system is limiting wheel spin. Keep in mind that when the warning lights turn on, a fault code is stored in the ABS control module (in this case). Retrieving, diagnosing, and repairing any ABS system faults will be necessary to keep the light off. A common fault with ABS systems are the wheel speed sensors, stored codes may confirm this.

Hope this helps.

Traction active message


It does that to tell you that your traction control senses slip on one of the wheels and is transferring some of the spin to the other wheel(s). What it basically means is that driving conditions are not optimal so if you see that message, be ready for some sort of weirdness while steering.

What would cause traction active light come on


i have had this problem since about 6 months after i bought my 2001 impala. the problem is in the hubs. the wireing that runs throw them rubs together and eventually shorts the traction and abs. easy solution to fix it though. get into the hubs and wrap the wires. otherwise take the car in and explain the problem to them and exactly what you need done. 9-10 times they won't fix the problem unless you tell them what you want done. it is really simple and going to the dealer should only cost you about 100 to fix.

Message center says "TRACTION ACTIVE"


it sounds like a wheel speed sensor to me. I am not sure if you need to replace the entire wheel bearing or not on these, but if you do, you may as well change both sides at once. I would try to look at the connection between the harness and the sensor to be sure it isn't loose or corroded, which will cause problems as well.
