    2004 EXT Traction Active Problem

    I put a heavy load in the bed of the truck yesterday and now the the Traction Active keeps coming on when I try to accelerate slowly from a stop. The truck won't go at all! I do have two different tires in the front then the back but hasnt been a problem before. (same size 24's, just different brand) The front two tires are a little worn. I have seen multiple solutions for this problem. The problem is very scary because the tires are not slipping and the road is not slippery or not sandy. Just does it every time I try to stop then go. Could it be the worn tires in the fornt? Should replacing them solve the problem? This is very annoying in traffic!

    Sounds like a wheel sensor failing and causing the traction control system to engage.

    I had the same thing happen to my 04 ext. took it in for service and it was the front traction sensors located in the hubs. Had both replaced and all is good.

    I was getting the service stabilitrack and random traction active triggers. It almost got me in a few good accidents.

    try turning off the stabilitrack system to see if the problem goes away.
