    Default Traction Control light staying on !!

    Hi there could anyone shed some light on a promblem i am experencing on my 04 reg Vectra 1.9CDTi 16v

    Well when I start the car all seems ok till I move off and the traction Controll light iluminates and stay lit !? Not only that bt whilst driving stedy the ABS light filickes too and occasionally get a picture of a steeringwheel with an exclamation mark iluminate (well flicker) in the display in the rev counter

    Can anyone help med shed some light on this or know what maybe up with it ?

    Personally i think it could be a wheel speed sensor gone down, I know for a fact I need to change the driverside front hub bearing as it sounds rough on rotation and i am in formed from a vauxhal specialist that this is a comon part to fail on the Vectra C's and on the wheel bearing is your ringed gear for the weheel speed sensor !! So I think il change that next week on my week off to eliminate that before I go paying out at vauxhall to try to diagnose it ?!

    but i'd love to hear anyones sujestions or ideas all could help and ill update everyone how I get on when iv done it next week

    Cheers for now
    Chris

    Rather pointless until either the EMS or engine warning light come on

    As above, sounds like the ABS sensor is at fault

    Does this happen on any specific road conditions, such as wet or dry, when turning left?

    Equally, when the TC comes on, try the indicators
    If the indicators stay on and won't cancel, then it's the CIM that has failed

    4 - one on each wheel - ABS needs to detect each wheel's speed.

    Get fault codes first. I had similiar problem with my 3.2 and It was the CIM module steering wheel angle sensor that needed to be recalibrated. I had messed It when changing the steerinwheel. Total costs were 30€ to get codes & calibrate. 15 min Job with tech 2.
