Get your system checked for malfunction codes. Sounds like there is water entering the sensor harnesses under the vehicle. Doesn't take much to set off the malfunction light.

Traction control


Any help from the manual on Traction Control kicking in? What happens when you turn off TC?

Mellissa, it needs to be diagnosed since these vehicles are highly computerized. Take it to a mechanic who has proper equipment to test. It might be a settings problem .

well while putting the car on the lift, traction control does not need to be disabled, and will not cause the abs/traction light to illuminate, these cars are known to have terrible wheel speed sensors that are brittle and tend to brake or malfunction for no apperent reason, and the wheel speed sensors are what control your abs and traction conrol units and they are normally what make the light come on on your dash, the warranty on the sensors was prolonged for that reason, so depending on the mileage of your car they might be covered, hope this 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.

T/C lite stays on


This is the traction control light. Try to push the button and hold it for a few seconds and see if you get stability system disabled or something like that on your DIC...There is more information on the T/C function in your owners manual.
I hope this helps.
