TCS engages going over bumps

Asked by Jul 21, 2014 at 08:23 PM about the 2007 Cadillac CTS 3.6L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2007 CTS started having issues with TCS engaging when driving over speed bumps or
other bumps (backing our of driveway).  Engages for just a few seconds, indicator shows
then it clears itself.  Any ideas?  Dealer thinks I'm spinning the wheels when driving over
bumps and, while I do drive fast, I don't quite drive THAT fast!!

1 Answer

Per dealershup, they noted a broken linkage on the rear strut - they felt it was insignificant BUT because they couldn't come up with any other reason for the TCS to be engaging, they fixed it. Problem solved! Moral of the story - don't expect the dealership to believe you until you demonstrate the problem and insist they work on it until it's fixed. This is my second "mystery" problem with this car :-) ... dealership didn't 'believe' until I made the service manager see it for himself
