Do you have the light on? if so you will need to replace the wheel speed sensor which you cant buy on its own, you have to buy the whole new hub assembly.

Abs light came on


What it looks like: The traction control warning light typically takes the form of the acronym "TC." Sometimes this light is a small illuminated picture of a car losing control What it looks like: The traction control warning light typically takes the form of the acronym "TC." Sometimes this light is a small illuminated picture of a car losing control. How this system works: Traction control uses wheel speed sensors to detect when one or more of the car's wheels lose grip and traction. When the system registers a loss of traction in one or more of the wheels, a computer will limit power to the wheels that are still in solid contact with the road to prevent a skid. Common reasons for this to happen:
  • ABS is malfunctioning: Traction control and ABS (anti-lock braking system) often share the same control module and internal self-diagnostics system. As a result, sometimes an issue in the ABS can trigger the traction control light. If this is the case, then both the ABS and Traction Control lights will be on.
  • Broken wheel speed sensors: Wheel speed sensors are usually in the wheel bearing assembly, and determine the rate at which each wheel is moving. The sensors relay that information to the traction control module, which determines whether or not power needs to be shifted. Wheel speed sensors can get dirty or damaged and stop working, which prohibits the traction control module from knowing when to enable the system.Traction control module is faulty: The traction control module - which, again, is often shared with the ABS - can malfunction and break altogether, causing the system to stop working. What to expect: A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of the traction control issue, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs. How important is this service? It's important to have the traction control issue investigated as soon as possible, as adverse driving conditions can arise at any time. While your car is unlikely to incur further damage from a faulty traction control system, it won't be safe to drive in rain, snow, sleet, or other inclement weather, or even possibly through pools of water on the road. Furthermore, the issue that is causing the traction control light to illuminate could also be impacting the ABS.

How to turn off traction control on 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer


Alexandre, check in your owners manual for small off button on the shifter under the large engage button. If you do not want traction control on in your vehicle check your manual for traction control fuse location and remove fuse. I can not say this is a wise thing to do, because your traction control is a safety feature for your vehicle. ABS braking system will be lost if you pull the fuse also. Pulling the fuse will disable abs, traction and stability control. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

05 gmc canyon traction control power fault


First you'll need to take it to have DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes check to find out what part of the system is at fault ! Could have a sensor , control module ,or wiring problem !
Traction Off Indicator The traction off indicator, which is a LED located on the traction control switch, illuminates only when the traction control switch has been pressed and released, disabling traction control. It is important to note that a traction fault does not illuminate this indicator and that there is no relationship between this indicator and the traction fault message.
Traction Fault Message The IPC displays the traction fault message when either of the following instances occur.
?€¢
The EBCM detects a malfunction that requires traction control to be disabled. The EBCM sends a serial data message to the IPC requesting that the message be displayed.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of serial data communication with the EBCM


Traction Control System (TCS)
When drive wheel slip is noted while the brake is not applied, the EBCM will enter traction control mode.
The EBCM uses a 5-volt pulse-width modulated (PWM) signal to request the PCM to reduce the amount of torque to the drive wheels. The PCM reduces torque to the drive wheels by retarding spark timing and by commanding the throttle actuator control. The PCM uses a 5-volt PWM signal in order to report to the EBCM the amount of torque delivered to the drive wheels.
You would need a factory grade scan tool to check data PID's - parameter identification , all the sensors work within a specific voltage range 1- 5 volts an you can see this on a good scan tool !
The Traction control is part of the ABS system an there a several DTC possible
DTC B0827 DTC B0828 DTC B2745 DTC C0035 DTC C0035 or C0040 DTC C0040 DTC C0055 DTC C0110 DTC C0191 DTC C0201 DTC C0220-C0229 DTC C0240 or P0856 DTC C0244 or P1689 DTC C0245 DTC C0267 or C0268 and C067 or C068 DTC C0550 DTC C0899 DTC C0900
You best bet is to take it to a qualified repair shop !

What is traction control sistem


TRACTION CONTROL: An enhancement of an existing ABS system that prevents wheel spin while accelerating on wet or slick surfaces. It uses the same wheel speed sensors to monitor wheel speed during acceleration, but requires some additional control solenoids and a pump to apply braking pressure to control wheel spin. The traction control system brakes the drive wheel that's starting to spin to shift torque to the opposite drive wheel that still has traction. Most traction control systems only operate at speeds up to about 30 mph. Additional control strategies that some traction control systems use to limit wheel spin include reducing the throttle opening, upshifting the transmission, retarding spark timing and deactivating fuel injectors.

Hope helps.

What is the T/C button for in the glove box of a 2003 CTS cadillac?


This button is for the traction control, when you push it it will say trac off or trac on . this will be displayed on the dash, this is for better traction on snow or wet roads and it keeps the wheels from spinning out,hope this helps, look in your manual under traction control, good luck.

Trac light blinks an i hear a clicking noise in my 2001 toyota 4runner 2wd when im goin thru mud. it also has no throttle response when this happens.


that is traction control. most vehicles with traction control use a combination of brakes/throtle control and transmission upshifting to control traction. in other words, your car computer senses wheel spin and then overides you to make the car regain traction. most cars that feature traction control also have a button to turn traction control on and off manually.

TRACTION CONTROL.


that is what it is desgined to do - reduce acceleration and apply the brakes intermittently when the wheels spin. You have a switch you cn push to disable it. You need to disable each time you start car. See owner manual.

06-10: Traction Control 1996 Contour, Mystique Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Traction Control System The optional traction control system is designed to control wheel spin when accelerating on slippery or loose surfaces. Traction control system is available only with anti-lock brakes. The traction control system includes the following components:
  • Hydraulic control unit.
  • Throttle control actuator (9N825).
  • Traction control switch.
  • Traction control warning indicator.
  • Front brake anti-lock sensor (2C204).
  • Rear brake anti-lock sensor (2C190).
The traction control system operates as follows:
  • System functions by transferring torque from the spinning wheel to the wheel with the most traction.
  • This is achieved by applying the brake at the spinning wheel through the hydraulic control unit or reducing the throttle opening.
  • Traction control braking and throttle control occur at vehicle speeds up to 50 km/h (30 mph).
  • At vehicle speeds above 50 km/h (30 mph), only throttle limiting control is used.
  • If speed control is operating when traction control system engages the traction control system will disengage speed control through the use of a speed control relay. This action is the same as applying the brake pedal with speed control engaged.

Traction Control Switch The traction control switch is located on the instrument panel, left of the steering column.
