I have been having a weird issue recently. When I am pulling out of a parking spot or backing out of my driveway (When I shift into Drive) My traction control will kick on. Im not losing traction at all, it will just kick on. It makes this nasty whiring sound that can be heard when it kicks on also. Any Ideas? Thanks in advance

You probably have a bad wheel speed sensor. I have the same problem right now, but I'm getting around it by disabling the TCS until I have time to replace the hubs.

This could also be the starting symptoms of the wireing harnes going to the Front wheel speed sensors starting to fail. If you replace the hubs and you still have the issue look at the harness. Its an easy cut and splice replacement. Might try that first as it is cheaper than hubs if you do it yourself.

It can also be one in the rear.

I had the same symptoms and this ended up being my issue. Eventually the wire will completely break and the ABS and traction systems will stop working.

This is what I found after both systems were disabled.

There's another thread with some more information on traction control issues. http://www.naioa.com/v2/module.....mp;t=45450

and the only way to fix the sensor is to replace the whole wheel hub and not just the sensor! Laughing How can I tell which wheel it is?

Check the wires first, you might get lucky. If it's not the wires you need a scanner that can read ABS codes to figure out which one is bad.

when i had a bad hub i swapped out the old drivers side with a new one. still didnít fix my problem so i took the old drivers side and swapped it with the passengers side. Fix, so even if you guess wrong you can still try the other side since both sides are the same
