Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

The traction control is controlled by the ABS. The ABS monitors the wheel speed sensors for issues. If you just changed tires but only 2, those tires are possibly not the same brand or size or there is a significant difference in the tread depth between the new and old tires resulting in the circumference different and the tires front and rear traveling at different speeds making the ABS/traction control to see an issue. A diagnostic tool is needed to monitor the sensors and confirm this.

Hello again Chris here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears your not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.

Thanks Chris
