I had this problem with my 2007 HHR. I drove away with the service engine and the service traction light on. The car was stuttering through the gears. I took it back and they checked it. They disconnect some wires while they change the oil and one was loose. The service engine turned off but the service traction stayed on. We disconnected the battery for 3 minutes and it fixed the problem. Some of those other guys spent up to 300 dollars to fix the problem. Hope it works out for you.

Why do esc, traction, and engine lights turn on?


Check the engine codes first. Some codes will shut down the ESC and traction. Then Traction codes will shut down ESC. With out codes we just guess.

You will need to find the trouble code for malfunctioning wheel speed sensor. The Powertrain control module thinks that there is a wheel spinning or slipping, which in turns retards ignition timing to limit the slip. It could be a bad sensor or a broken wire harness. Some parts houses can give you the code, but you will either have to take it in to a Certified Technician, or diagnose it yourself if you are qualified.

the abs light is on because it is telling you that the abs system has a fault in one of the sensors, also with the light on it means that the abs is disabled. the traction control and esc are on because they are linked to the abs

Hello and welcome. the engine reduce power waraning is the key to the other problems. this is normally a problem with the electronic throttle system. the engine control module disables the traction control system when it detects a engine problem, in your case a problem with the electronic throttle system. you shouldnt drive with this concern. this is normally covered under the vehicles 100,000 mile warranty. you need to conteact your nearest dealer for help

Traction control off, service traction control, service stabilitrak - there messages keeps popping up on my 2008 Acadia...


{: ) Your stabilitrak system may not work properly. The vehicle need to be scanned for trouble codes. In case you get a C0196 code, the recommendation is to reprogram the electronic brake control module. I hope that's the only cause.
