The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The service traction system light is on. In addition, while driving at a high speeds of 65-70, the consumer felt a slight slow down in the engine and a pull to the right in the steering. The failure mileage was 88,000 and the current mileage was 110,000. March of 2006 the right rear, January of 2008 the left rear, October of 2009 the right front. It is possible to disable this feature for the driving cycle, although it is automatically reenabled each time you crank the Impala's engine. I had this same problem and was horrified to find out what this can cause your car to do if not fixed.
When braking the car makes a grinding noise and car is not stopping it feels like it's locking up and sliding. It did not make it out of the shop before all of these lights started coming back on. I was told the back brakes were ok. I am also concerned about the money I've had to pay because of this design defect. The technician replaced the bearings, brakes and two tires. A code will help greatly.
Then after driving I turn off the car and turn it back on and it wont come on. The vehicle was repaired but the failure persisted. It won't hold antifreeze, I don't see a leak but it needs refilled quite often. We in turn called the dealership, and after many days, ccalls, finally got my car in. I was told that the tires would begin to wobble and the steering would be affected if not repaired within a certain amount of time. It would most likely need to be checked by a technician. Apply some Di-Electric grease on top of the bolt and the remaining visible surface of the Lug all the way to the wire housing, don't leave any metal surface uncovered If you have the optional materials then you will definitely save yourself the headaches from doing this all over again.
She also noticed that the abs and traction warning lights were illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was not repaired. This is going to cause someone to get hurt. I am at wits end and dont know what to do now. It seems to be a common problem. This appears to be a poor design and a safety issue which could lead to the car being undriveable.

. I spent countless hours researching this and tried a couple of things. The low traction kicks in all the time when I am braking. I'd greatly appreciate your time and direction. I did not have dielectric grease, so I just used white lithium grease. So I had new wheel bearings put back on it again today and it is still doing this. Grease up everything and tighten the bolt back down.
Very comfortable and quiet on the road with lots of room. Came up on message board traction control after a couple times of it doing that, the abs and tax light come on and on the message window it says system traction service. My son just over hauled the intake gasket, which took time, changed them to the felpro. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We elevated the issue up to gm district service case 71-898488738. You cannot tell if the wiring is bad just by looking at it, get a multimeter and measure the resistance on the connectors that will tell you all that you need to know.
The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. Open the drivers door and on the side of the dash you will see a panel. The manufacturer was not notified of the defect. Could this be something with my tires needing replaced? The most common problem would be that one of your wheel speed sensors are not working properly. But even with the traction system off, the car will still do the same thing.
Now there is no check engine light on but it will still shut down the car and will show the 'service traction system' light on as well as shut off the traction system completely. My Impala has the low traction feature and lately it has been engaging at inappropriate times not icy or wet, etc. Each time the abs and service traction system lights were on. The wire is rock hard. The dealer advised that they had to replace the front wheel sensor. I've had this car since 2006 and have 69000 miles on her.
