Can you turn it off on the dash, will it turn off? The button by the head light switch. So does the car always run bad now?

I had the same problem and what Idid was to replace both rotors and if you look there is a switch on each side and problem solve.

hi, I just had the light come on with the message on the dashboard that the "traction system has to be checked". I replaced my rotors a few months ago and I have not had any issues until not. What switch should I be looking for? Thanks for the help

How does changing your rotors make your engine run bad? Mt 07 silverado started having this same issue.

I'm having the same problem. Diagnosed my 2006 chevy impala 3.5 my first issue was it was misfiring from cylinder 2. Now after driving it, i am getting a service traction control. After reading your posts i think my rotors on the front have to do something with it cause they started making a noise while driving. And my check engine went away as soon as i stopped driving.

Having the same problem. I turned the traction control off, now it wont come back on, same message, service traction control system. Car still runs fine though, could it be a fuse?

I changed my camshaft magnet and spark plugs also they changed some kind of oil switch and the traction control light and check engine light still are on and it still runs bad .
