traction control pulls engine timing (reduces engine power) when it detects the driving wheels are slipping.

Actually, I think TC applies the brakes first to control wheel slip. If that fails, then it starts reducing engine power by dropping injectors.

When I saw your name as a new/renew supporting member on the top of the page I felt better. Was still a little worried because of the weather and such.
Get on the mend quickly, gets a little quiet around here without you!:thumbsup:

Sometimes you have to run before you learn to walk.

Welcome, Rubeng! Please count me as one of the members who would be interested in your Cadillac'syear/make! As the helpful member have already pointed out, your traction control system limits wheel spin. (This is especially useful in slippery road conditions.) The system operates only if it senses that one or both of the front wheels are spinning or beginning to lose traction. When this happens, the system works the front brakes and reduces engine power to limit spin. I'm always available via email at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com.

Orconn, I'm happy that you're on the mend and having fun checking in with this forum! :)

Best,

Katie

An OP of few words. The question seems almost metaphorical when you ask it like this.
