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

Asked by 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.
