I have a 2003 yukonxl Denali that I'm having traction control problems. Light comes on frequently. Often goes back off quickly but not always. Sometimes a message of stability control disabled but this message doesn't always come on when traction control warning icon lights. I have not noted any drivability problems...yet.

Have you scanned the system to see what fault codes are sat when these lights come on?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
no, thinking of taking to dealer to have them scan it but don't the lights have to be on/active when it is scanned to find the problem?
GMC Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

The lights do not need to be on, if they have been coming on there should be fault codes stored in the system's memory.
