Suspension, Brakes and Tires Discussion, ??"Traction Disabled" message?? in Item Specific Cadillac Discussion; I have only been experiencing this problem for maybe the last two weeks or so and have never seen this ...
I have only been experiencing this problem for maybe the last two weeks or so and have never seen this one before. Anyway Ill be driving and then casually it will just pop up TRACTION DISABLED, I was like WTF, why is this coming up?? I started paying closer attention to it and it only happens whenever Im going atleast 35mph, and I hit a descent size size bump in the rode. Then after that you can tell that it doesnt get the traction during accerleration like it should!!! Has anyone else had this one?? My suspension is shot and I think this could contribute to the problem?? Any and all input will be apreciated!!
I own a 1995 Seville SLS (with the 4.6L engine, of course), and my I'm getting an intermittent problem with the traction control and the ABS. Every now and then, my car just pops up with the "TRACTION DISABLED" message, and at the same time, the ABS light turns on. While this is going on, the car starts in 2nd gear, and full throttle doesn't make it downshift (I asked Cadillac about this...they said it was because of the Traction Control System...something about tire slip and weight distribution). Anyway, I've heard that I should just clear my TCS codes and things will be peachy, but when I asked Cadillac about it, they said " Noooo!!! You don't want to do that! The only thing that'll happen is that it'll stop that from happening for 5 minutes." Anyway, any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
A037 History T037 CURRENT
According to the "current" problem (I'm not even going to THINK about the "history" of my car...pun intended), my left rear wheel's speed sensor has a continuity problem. Seriously...how is this fixed? I've heard things before about "hub and bearing assembly" and whatnot, but I'm not sure what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: ??"Traction Disabled" message??
Pull the LR wheel and look at the wires going to the sensor, and follow them up the suspension. Heck, the thing might just even be unplugged from the last person to work on it. If it's plugged in, make sure the wire is securely fastened. A lot of times they flop around and rub on the wheel or tire and it eats through a wire.
Yeah I had to do that one time whenever I was changing a flat tire,! The silicone looking wire was completely severed!!! I tried to N-rig it with electrical tape but my fingers are seriously to big to even try, besides that I looked closely and they wire didnt even seam to have any electrical wires in it. As if it were hollow and had air running directly through it!! Ill check again, I know im going to need a strut replacement, what would be the best bet for the best dollar, and also maintaining the cadillac floating ride!!!
