Traction Control : A system that is designed to work with the anti-lock braking system, engine, transmission and or steering to help stabilize a vehicle when it senses a problem with the vehicle connecting to the road. By sensing the speeds of the wheels individually, it can first detect if any wheel is excessively spinning or seizing. By using this and other information such as steering wheel position, inertia sensing, accelerator position and or transmission gear selection, the traction control can help stabilize the vehicle by slowing the vehicle automatically using the engine, brakes and or transmission.
Problems with the traction control may cause weird symptoms. Many customers may notice the vehicle not going when pressing the accelerator pedal. Other times, the vehicle will not shift or the anti-lock brakes will apply for no reason. There are several other key factors such as warning lamps or messages to inform the driver if there is a computer code that may help pinpoint the source of a problem with the traction control system.
No matter what type of problem you have, the vehicle must be checked out my a professional to verify what it is accurately. Bring it in to the mechanic shop to get the problem pinpointed. Ignoring these problems may cause unsafe situations when the traction control is needed by your vehicle.
