The wheel sensors or wires to the wheel sensors are bad. there are some bad import parts out there that do not live up to the OEM products. that is why a warrenty is important. you should replace them in pairs ( both front or both rear). check the wiring/ sockets at the lower ball joint, make sure the sockets are securely attached with clips or wire ties and that the pins didn't bend over in the socket when you plugged them in,( make sure the wire does not touch any metal parts or it will wear into a short). if all connectors and wires are secure, unplug the connector and look at the pins in the socket, straighten them if bent and try pluging them in again, (you may need to clear the codes by disconnecting the battery) if the wire is good sockets are good my vote would be a bad wheel sensor whitch will force a bearing replacement if you want anti lock/ and traction control to work.

Where are the traction control senors in a 2009 chevrolet trailblazer?


The traction control uses the ABS wheel speed sensors (1 on each wheel - usually in the wheel bearing assembly). The speed sensor is for your speedometer. Do you have an ABS light on too?

Traction control light flickers and the system growls. Then ABS light comes on.......


I would look at, or have looked at the wheel bearings. Most vehicles have the wheel sensors as part of the wheel bearings, and if one fails, you will get ABS and traction control issues.

Replaced both wheel bearings on van but abs light coms and traction control light comes on all the time all it does it sounds like grinding all the time


it sounds like the bearing might not be seated properly. if so the sensor for the abs and traction control will not get a signal and the lights will come on.

ABS light is on all the time as well as Traction Control light. Grinding occurs while driving


with traction control set up cars abs and tranction control sensors are in the wheel bearings when a wheel bearing goes out grinding will come from front wheels and will ruin abs and traction control sensors causing the malfunction. Most likely by your description this will be it.

Service traction system


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.

2007 Chevrolet Uplander LT ABS and TC light on


We were having this problem...have your wheel bearing checked out. There was a sensor in the drivers side wheel bearing...once we replaced it (because it was going out) the ABS and Traction Control warning lights stopped coming on.

Traction Contrl and ABS Light on


No, it is probably not related. Usually the ABS and traction control light is either a wheel sensor problem, located in one of the wheel bearings, or most likely in the wire harness from the wheel bearing sensor. Remove wires and spray clean with a good solvent electric spray, and check the condition of the receptacle. I have had these problems with my 02 AWD so many times it has become almost routine. GM really have a problem with this type of speed sensor in the wheel bearings. In the AWD model, it keeps the car in FWD if the ABS light is on for any reason. JUNK!
