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.
