Doesnt flash at all. No switch this is smarttrak
Oldsmobile Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

O​kay got it, I was unsure if this was a Smarttrak model. Does the vehicle have any trouble codes stored?

Havent gotten that far. Was just looking for an idea on what/where to start in persuit of fixing. Im at work. Cant tackle anything til the weekend. Thiught perhaps this was a common symptom of something
Oldsmobile Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

M​ost commonly when I see these default like this it is usually a wheel speed sensor at fault. That is why we will need to check and see if there are any codes. If there are no codes then it may be a programming/wiring issue. Let me know when you have time to check it out and I will be here to continue with you :)
