Question Service Traction Control System

I just had this message posted yesterday for the 1st time. I have 28,800 miles and have not changed the brakes yet (does not need new pads yet). The owners manual is not helpful...just says to take in for service when warning light goes off.

It's currently below -0 and has been for a couple of days. Snow every day for 3 days and the traction control system is getting used quite frequently. I do drive the car hard, so I'm thinking about changing tranny fluid and filter.

Any recommendations or ideas?

Thanks!

is the ABS light on? I would take it to your local shop and find out what the codes are in the abs system

Yep, the ABS light is on and that function is not currently working as well. I'm being told it could possibly be froze up sensors?

most likely its a bad connection at the sensor, its a fairly typical issue

sorry, I need to codes to help you better. They have wiring issues, not just connection problems.

they also have a tendency to unwind in the conduit and then rub against the side of the oil pan causing an intermittent problem. Sometimes if you spray salt water on the harness it'll act up if its not already. That's why they replace the wiring harness all the way up to the harness split.

**Update**

It's the rear right wheel sensor...it's resistance is all over the place, so the hub needs to be replaced. GM is going to honor my warranty claim for this part, so I got that going for me. I believe the code was C1235, which is a difficult to decipher according to one of my tech buddies.

Yep...they also need to pickup the tab on the tranny cooler lines, which are leaking too!

sounds like hubs...again, what kind did you use when you replaced them?

I ended up replacing with the Timkens bearings from Canada...not the cheap azz ones from Thailand!

Maybe that you've only driven like 300 miles in the last year?
