Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
It could be many different things, a DTC scan of the vehicle will reveal which path to take.
Could be throttle body, EGR valve, ignition coil pack, etc.
Can you give me the error code (DTC)?
1.8 Z18XE engine, manual transmission?
I know what the traction control light looks like.
I cannot do anything else for you until you give me the error code as requested above.
I have worked for Holden since 1980.
I would be guessing without knowing the code.
You will need to have a scantool connected to the car by a technician.
There will be a code in the ECM and ABS modules.
The "Traction control" function is an interaction between the ECM and ABS/ESP module.
Your local Holden dealer can do the scan for you.
I can wait for you to get the scan done by Holden.
It is a little like getting an MRI done, your doctor doesn't know until he sees the scan results.
I wish you a Happy New Year to you, and your family.
