Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Without being able to actually check the vehicle just going on what you are saying it sounds like you probably have a bad wheel speed sensor making the traction control think one of the wheels is spinning or slipping.

I assume you dont have a scan tool with live ABS data... if so you can get in and check the wheel speed sensor readings and replace the bad one.

Many times the wheel bearing goes bad and that causes the speed sensor to go bad so if you dont have a scan tool try jacking up the wheels and shaking them down to see if one of the wheel bearings is loose. If so replace it.. it will come with a new sensor.

Let me know if you need anything further. If not please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for helping you today.

Thanks.
