#15 of 21 Service Traction System
May 28, 2009 (10:05 am)
I have a 2002 Montana. I keep getting the SERVICE TRACTION SYSTEM light which is followed by the ABS light and the TRAC OFF light. I have had it in for service and got told they could find nothing wrong.
Is there any way to turn the traction system off and/or the ABS system off?

Hhmm, If the warning lights are on there should be a code set (which may require a GM dealers scan) which usually should indicate problem with particular wheel. Many times the connection to the wheel speed sensor may be loose or corroded, or it may be the sensor itself.

My 2002 Montana has an issue with randomly jerking as I drive. It happens at varying speeds from 10 mph up to over 70 mph.
I will be driving and suddenly the car will give a little jerk or 2. The jerks are harder and more noticeable the faster that I am driving. I thought that somethimg is causing it to miss but the shop told me that they can find nothing with the scope and that it my be the 'throttle positionin sensor'.

It was the sensor connection. It was not easy convincing them to check it out. They put in a new wheel bearing under warranty forlast one done first.

I just got a 2002 thunder edition a few months ago
car has just hit 70,000 miles
so far the ac system and tuneup ran me about $900
and i just got her back out of the shop again $1600
new radiator, rad by-pass pipe, oil pan gasket, rotor, and pads
took the car out for a drive the other day
and the batt light came on..................
we checked the batt and the alt and both are working fine!!!
next day the abs light and then the AWD disabled light came on.....
I went back to the shop and they lifted the car said they have no idea why the batt light is on and that the abs and awd lights are on b/c of the bad weather we had
I got this thing b/c of bad weather and that fact that it had AWD
so now i'm online b/c i do not trust the mechanic / shop and i need info and ideas
#20 of 21 Locking Up

I have 2006 Montana van that will not start after being pushed manually without starting. Does this have anything to do with anti-theft system? When I use the key to start, nothing happens--no warning lights, no anything. What do I need to do to get it started again? Please, help! This is so frustrating.

I would encourage you to have your vehicle diagnosed by a GM dealership. Please keep me posted when the issue has been taken care of.
