Prior to any Repair or Parts, you need to have the Vehicle Scanned for Trouble Codes of the ABS / Traction Control.Most Brake Shops or Dealer can do this, as use of Scan Tool that can read ABS System is needed
The Repair will be dependent on the Trouble Codes found & what is needed to be replaced
The The Electronic Brake and Traction Control Module (EBTCM) receives various inputs from the PCM, wheel speed sensors and transmission sensors. It outputs information to various devices such as the PCM.
The primary function of the EBTCM is to detect wheel locking and wheel slip tendencies, control the brake system while in anti-lock or traction control mode through the use of torque management. The function of Electronic Brake and Traction Control is integral with the Anti Lock Brake (ABS) system.
OPERATION ;Torque Management is a function of the PCM that reduces engine power under certain conditions. Torque management is used to prevent overstress of powertrain components, to limit engine power when brakes are applied, and to prevent vehicle damage during certain abusive maneuvers. The PCM uses manifold vacuum, intake air temperature, spark retard, engine speed, engine coolant temperature, A/C clutch status, and EGR valve position to calculate and control engine output torque.
