Re: 02 Deville Traction Control light
Read the stickys at the top of Deville and Northstar to find out how to pull the DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) from your car's instrument panel display by using the 3 buttons to the right of the panel. You do not need an aftermarket scanner. Write down the codes, noting whether they are History or Current. Then come back here......
Something is sending an incorrect wheel speed or mismatch to the PCM, which is trying to stop a wheel from slipping or skidding. Any new tire changes or curb damage ? Good tires ? Aggressive driving ??
I also have a traction control light problem. 00 Deville. Only comes on at night and when I hit my turn signal. During the day I have no problems with it. Seems its something with the lighting system causing the problem. When dusk arrives I hit my turn signal switch and the Traction Control light warning comes on and when I hit the button on the shift handle I have nothing displaying traction control. Like I said, during the day morning till dusk it works as advertised. Anyone know of any bulletins? I also have no codes.
