SOURCE: traction system

Hi there.Whats happening here is an abs sensor in the wheel has failed.In doing so it will turn off your traction control because your abs breaks and traction control work together .If maybe you have an auto zone near by they can scan your break system to find what abs sensor is causing the problem.I hope this clarified some for ya..Auto zone will scan the car for free so that won't cost you anything.You can drive the car you just wont have abs and you should get it fixed.Again I hoped I helped you and if you need further assistance I'll be here to help you..Have a great day..

SOURCE: Service Traction System Light on 2003 Chev Impala

on the rotors you probably noticed two lines one for the brakes and the other is your traction control magnet which picks up a signal to tell the computer to control the braking system when the wheel locks up in hard braking, you either damaged the magnet or it picked up some metal shaving while replacing the brake pads

Should be a sensor (look for a wire running to the back side or inside of the wheel.) that picks up the rotation.

I'd suspect that it got damaged during the wheel bearing replacement. If the wire is missing, look at the left side front wheel as a mirror image of what should be there.

Hi mzcongeniali, I have a 2001 Montana that had this same problem just a few months ago.Most likely the problem is that one of the traction sensors has gone bad. The sensor is part of the wheel bearing and you will have to replace the whole wheel bearing in order to replace the sensor. They are found on the front wheel bearings on both sides. You might have only one that is bad or both could be bad. If you want you could get a used one from a auto salvage yard or buy one brand new. If you have an all wheel drive then you will want to check all four wheel bearings to find the bad one. I hope this helps.

What caused the tracking control light to turn on?


If the system fails to turn on or activate, the StabiliTrak®

light along with one of the following messages will be

displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC):

TRACTION CONTROL OFF, SERVICE TRACTION

CONTROL, SERVICE STABILITRAK. If you see these

conditions, turn the vehicle off, wait 15 seconds, and then

turn it back on again to reset the system. If any of these

messages still appear on the Driver Information Center
(DIC), your vehicle should be taken in for service.

My service stabletrack keeps come on how to fix that


Hi there:

Your vehicle is equipped with StabiliTrak, which combines antilock brake, traction and stability control systems and helps the driver maintain directional control of the vehicle in most driving conditions.
Traction control activates when the controller senses wheel spin. StabiliTrak will selectively apply the brakes and reduce engine torque to help regain traction.


Stability control activates when the controller senses a discrepancy between your intended path and the direction the vehicle is travelling. StabiliTrak selectively applies braking pressure at any one of the vehicle's brakes to help guide the vehicle in the direction which you are steering.


When you first start your vehicle and begin to drive away, the system performs several diagnostic checks to insure there are no problems. You may hear or feel the system working. This is normal and does not mean there is a problem with your vehicle. If driving conditions delay system initialization, the STABILITRAK NOT READY message may be displayed. If this is the case, your vehicle does not need servicing.


When the StabiliTrak system is both on and actively controlling the stability of the vehicle, the StabiliTrak light will blink for the duration of the event.


You may also feel or hear the system working. This is normal.
StabiliTrak will turn off automatically if a problem is detected in the system. The StabiliTrak light will come on and SERVICE STABILITRAK will be displayed on the DIC. For vehicles without a DIC, the StabiliTrak light and the StabiliTrak service light will both come on. If the SERVICE STABILITRAK message (or StabiliTrak service light) does not clear itself after restarting the vehicle, you should see your dealer for service.


Hope this helps.

How do you turn off the warning lights ABS and the service traction system and the traction off light.. I have replaced hubs brakes sensors on all 4 wheels everything is brand new . i just need to know how...


the only way to reset this ABS light is with an OBDII diagnostic tool. You can buy one for around $25-$200 or any technitian would be able to reset it for you and probably not even charge for that. If it come back on after reset, that indicates there is a problem somewhere with the ABS system and it will give a code.
if this was helpful please give it thumbs up to help others.
Good luck

All are tied into the ABS system, traction as well as stabilization, This needs to be looked at by someone who can hook up a diagnostic tester to read the fault codes stored in the ABS system then perform the correct diagnostic procedures to isolate the problem

Traction service light comes on about every 5th start after driving a very short distance (smooth roads, no turns). Will reset if you stop and restart. (appox 35,000miles)


{: ) The traction light resetting and appearing again is a clear indication of a traction system fault that require immediate servicing. It is best to have it scanned for codes to determine the exact cause. Who knows, the cause could be simpler than we expect.

2001 olds ABS and traction control sensor issue


An ABS sensor DOES affect the traction control system. Traction control uses these sensors to determine if a wheel is losing traction. A bad sensor will cause both the ABS and TRACTION lights to come on.
The CHECK ENGINE light however is going to be a seperate problem.
