Question about 2003 Chevrolet Impala
2003 impala, tons of snow build up. i cleaned it off as well as i could but my abs and service traction lights keep comming on, although it is not constantly just most of the time. at this point both traction and abs shut down. there is still a lot of snow under the car. there were to explanations on the other page, so i was wondering what would be the most likely fix or is there another explanation, like to much **** underneeth the car?
Traction control systems measure wheel speed differences by various methods to determine if one wheel is rotating faster than the other. A heavier buildup of ice/snow could be affecting wheel rotation speed causing the TCS to engage. ABS works by sensing slippage at the wheels during braking, and continually adjusting braking pressure to ensure maximum contact between the tires and the road. Suggest clearing out the wheel wells now and periodically throughout the winter. Also remove ice/snow build up between the wheel and the brake pads/rotor.
