Asked by Aug 18, 2015 at 01:20 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD LS Crew Cab Short Bed 2WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just had my ABS control module replaced and my traction control off light wont turn off. I have pushed both the Traction control switch and the stability switch with no change. Could my rebuild module be faulty?

Have them first check the front and rear bearing, if they are wore and not lined up they send a wrong single cause the light to stay on...

Yes, the ABS and traction control work together. If there's a fault in one system, both are disabled. That's why the traction control light is on. Is the ABS light on as well? HTH. -Jim

No the ABS light went out after replacing the module and the Traction off light came on. I had read somewhere that erroneous faults could occur after replacing the module because the computer needs to be reset or relearn?
