Hi,
this simply means the wheels are slipping and the computer is applying the brakes(trac) and reducing the accelerator (eng speed reduced) to try and bring the car back into control. It basically means its time for new tires or rotate the front ones to the back so the wheels slip less...

I have a 2008 Chevy Impala SS it continues to show service traction control and service Stabilitrak. Any help fixing this problem?


check for codes in the ABS module to start as it controls traction control and I think works with Stabilitrak.

Why is the traction control and abs lights on in my 2008 chev impala?


Sounds like you need to run a diagnostic's check to find which one is playing up otherwise you will end up spending money needlessly

You seem to have an issue with the traction control system and you will need a shop with the capability of accessing those modules to read them.

My 2008 chevy impala traction control stays on and I can't turn it off and now it keeps beeping frequently, how do I fix this?


Take it to any auto parts place and have it scanned for codes, it will tell ya which VSS vehicle speed sensor is not responding, change that and all will be fine.

2009 Impala won't start. First message "Service Battery Charging System" Then "Battery Saver Active" Now message reads "Service Traction Control."


turn on your car and remove the ground cable from the battery, if the car dies it's time for a new alternator, if not take your battery in to be checked. The other message(traction control) may be just due to a faulty battery/alternator.

2008 traction control and engine light on


your powertrain warranty will cover the check engine light most likely as long as you are under a hundred thousand miles and the traction control light is most likely related to the engine light, Take your vehicle to your local chevrolet dealer, or if you are beyond the mileage have autozone or checker pull the Diagnostic trouble code out and it will lead you to the most likely cause of the problem

What is the "Trac off"


It means you turned off the traction or pushed the ETS button on the gear shift.

The Enhanced Traction System is an all-speed engine based traction control system used by General Motors Corporation in many of their models. In some models, the driver has the option to disable this system by pushing a button marked "ETS". The system uses sensors to monitor wheelspin and reduces engine speed, upshifts or retards ignition timing to improve traction
