The TCS/StabiliTrak light comes on and the SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL message will be displayed in the DIC if there is a problem with the traction control system. -- I didn't see anything about different sized tires but it might be a cause.

I apologize for the inconvenience caused by the issue. If the light is consistently flashing, it may require the vehicle to be brought in for service. Below are 2 passages from the Owner's Manual. I hope all is going well despite any car issues. Feel free to contact us privately. Regards. Traction Control System (TCS) Warning Light The traction control system warning light should come on briefly when the engine is started. If the warning light does not come on then, have it fixed so it will be ready to warn you if there is a problem. If it stays on, or comes on when you are driving, there may be a problem with your traction control system and your vehicle may need service. When this warning light is on, the system will not limit wheel spin. Adjust your driving accordingly. If the traction control system warning light comes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the system is turned on, your vehicle needs service. See Traction Control System (TCS) on page 4-9 for more information. StabiliTrak® Indicator Light For vehicles equipped with the StabiliTrak® system, this warning light should come on briefly when the engine is started. If the warning light does not come on then, have it fixed so it will be ready to warn you if there is a problem. If it stays on, or comes on when you are driving, there may be a problem with your StabiliTrak® system and your vehicle may need service. When this warning light is on, the system will not limit wheel spin. Adjust your driving accordingly. If the StabiliTrak® system warning light comes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the system is turned on, your vehicle needs service. See StabiliTrak® System on page 4-10 for more information. Matt, GM Customer Service
