The traction control warning light is on and beeping occurs

Customer Question

the traction control warning light is on and beeping occurs and driving results in hard halts. I was fixed 2 years ago.
JA: The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Do you happen to have the code?
Customer: no code. just frustration
JA: Not a problem. You can work with the Saturn Mechanic to figure that out. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: the last time it was fixed they ordered a part
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: I would be great
JA: Is there anything else the Saturn Mechanic should be aware of about your Saturn?
Customer: 2008 model outlook
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Saturn Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

greetings,

In many cases when there is a fault that sets the trac control or abs off there is a trouble codes stored. it could be a failing wheel speed sensor, wire harness issue. we really need to find out if there are codes in the system.

Expert:  ironmike replied 6 months ago.

Many parts places will scan for trouble codes for free. Sometimes with intermittent faults a scanner or diagnostic tool that shows the tech live data is needed to catch the faulty sensor or part.

are any other warning lights on? you could make sure the master cylinder reservoir is full.

Expert:  ironmike replied 6 months ago.

when the brake pads wear the fluid level goes down in the master cylinder reservoir and the level sensor might set the system off.
