Your vehicle is equipped with StabiliTrak, which combines antilock brake, traction and stability control systems and helps the driver maintain directional control of the vehicle in most driving conditions. It is possible to disable this feature for the driving cycle, although it is automatically reenabled each time you crank the Impala's engine. Please run down this video and report back Cheers Sometimes when I drive my car the service traction control light comes on and when that happens, the transmission will kick in next gear when shifting, sometime the light will come on an shut right back off and sometimes it will stay on for 3 mins and then shut off and come on again can u help me on this Thanks My 2006 Impala will suddenly show a message saying Service Traction Control, the shows another message saying Engine Power will decrease. I felt the speed of the car reduced, luckily I am on local street without many traffic. Its like driving on ice, I have never ever had any car handle like this.
Grease up everything and tighten the bolt back down. This video will show people how to get their own codes A trouble code does not necessarily mean a component is fault. The vehicle failed to restart. From the outside the tread was fine and it appeared to be in good shape but when it was on the lift the told me they all had metal showing. We have now spent hundreds of dollars trying to repair the issue but with no solution in sight. Here is how you change a wheel speed sensor guide and how its done on your car Below.
The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and the contact was waiting for a response to determine a solution to repair the vehicle. The traction control system is a joke. Then use dielectric grease on all of those before you bolt it back down. What I understand is that the sensor has most probably been affected by the hosing and if the damage is reversible or not, you need to inspect and perform testing to find out.
I took the vehicle to my mechanic, and he couldn't find anything wrong with it. Since then, I have researched it on line, and have found that there have been numerous complaints about the same issue. I wish I would have never purchased this car based on this reason. The oil pressure low stop engine message comes on. So better have it scanned and fixed, or the light will just annoy you every time. I needed to cross over to the other side.
The vehicle lost engine power and my wife, daughter and I were almost rear ended. Whatever the cause may be with this speed sensor, could it cause the braking issue that I explained, or could this be an issue with the actual brakes? Put heat shrink tube over this all the way to the end of the crimp where the now soldered wire is showing. My son took the Impala to the dealer service yesterday and purchased his 2 tires- it was agreed by service manager that if we took the car there and bought tires from universal that he would put them on, do an alignment and most important install the camber bolt kit at no extra charge. I wonder what I should do or if I can do it myself. I had this same problem and was horrified to find out what this can cause your car to do if not fixed. It basically means its time for new tires or rotate the front ones to the back so the wheels slip less.
I stopped and tried to put the car in park, but nothing happened. Please advise of pursuing the suit. I contacted onstar for an engine diagnostic- the result was that the powertrain system has failed- a malfunction of the electronic throttle control system. I am lucky to be alive I was doing about 60 on the expressway and the car speed just dropped to 20mph I had to swerve because the car behind could not slow down in time. There is no way to know unless it is on a lift. This is a serious and can be fatal issue for a number of models and years.
StabiliTrak will selectively apply the brakes and reduce engine torque to help regain traction. It is undrivable in the snow. So I can fix this? After about an hour I tried to tested it again and only the engine light is on, the speed of the car is normal. Taking to Chevy dealer for a diagnosis. This is very dangerous especially being that my children and I were in this car and it decided to do this on the interstate at night in 70 mph traffic.
The Chevy dealership explained to me that they have a lot of problems with the Chevy Impala gas pedal. I 've read on google that several Impala owners are experiencing the same thing. I am a technical airhead so if I can do it so can you. She had to drive the car for 10 miles in fear that the car was going to stop in the middle of the city street while in transit. I had to replace my gas tank as well as my pedals for this car.
I will post an Instructable on how to do this when I do so for my car. I have a service stabilitrak and service traction control on on board warnings…. I tried to floor it but my car didn't respond as normal. The vehicle was not yet inspected and diagnosed by a dealer. If the system is working normally the indicator light will then go off. After 2 hours had passed, I started the car-the check engine light was off and when I drove I was able to drive faster than 40 mph. The vehicle was not repaired and was to be taken to a dealer for inspection and diagnostic testing.
