97 SLS--- Traction Control Light on all the time

Recommended Posts

Just happened yesterday. I noticed the Traction Control light is on, and it feels like traction control is engaged while I drive. I stopped the car, put it in "Park" and pushed the traction control on/off button in the glove box, but the Traction Control light stays on anyway. Traction control still seems to be engaged. I do think my car is due for new disc brake pads. Would this have anything to do with the Traction Control?

If anyone has experienced this problem I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Brake ware should have nothing to do with T/C. When the T/C is inop, 1st gear is disables so you are starting out in 2nd. Pull the DTC's. Probably a wheel speed sensor fault.

Is your ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) working properly? I had that problem on a '97 Olds LSS a few years ago. The Traction Control light came on and stayed on, and eventually the ABS light came on as well. I had to get the ABS system repaired (very expensive, if not for an extended warranty) in order to get the Traction Control working again.
