Traction Control Engaged

Recommended Posts

I bought a 1997 sts a couple of weeks ago, it had a RF wheel sensor and some other minor codes, I cleared all the codes so I could tell what might come back or be old.

Nothing has come back, BUT my tracton control engaged alarms comes on the information center from time to time, this is just while doing normal stop and go traffic, doesn't seem to matter whether turning or not.

So far have not gotten no trouble codes, I kind of hoping that it was the right front wheel sensor because I could fix that and be done.

When I disengage the traction control in the glove box, then all is fine, I think that might elimenate any ABS issues but not sure.

Sounds like a low tire, or a mismatched tire to me.

DOES the traction control module actually engage? Can you hear/feel the growling, as the traction control system would engage the ABS brakes?

I would closely re-examine that right front wheel speed sensor, and the connection/wiring.

What DTC codes are you getting? You didn't explain that.

If you throttle up hard or brake hard on a wet road surface, do you hear the machine-gun-like sound of the ABS/Traction Control engaging? I *think* you answered that, but I'm not certain.
