This light is usually caused by a problem in the ABS system. A problem in the ABS system will dissable the traction control system. you will need to have the computers scanned for trouble codes.

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..

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.

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.
