Why is the message center in my 2000 Pontiac Montana displaying "Traction Active"?


Asked by DCH Jun 03, 2012 at 02:22 PM about the Pontiac Montana

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Pontiac Montana.  Occasionally, when the vehicle is accelerated up an incline the message center displays "Traction Active".  The front wheel bearings were replaced around 3000 miles ago which cleared an ABS light which was lighting occationally.

Have your mechanic check the wheel bearing/sensors again. It can also be a wire harness issue to the sensors.

cool, trac control is keeping driving wheels from slipping. you will see this mess. when it senses beginning wheel slip- means it is working. (I own transmission shop- most complaints are that it fails to light and wheels slip) ...
