Default 2001 Monte Carlo Traction Control Problem

Okay, so I'm having this problem with my traction control, and it is NOT similar to the traction control/abs issue I've had with speed sensors and wheel hub assembly. My traction control will randomly kick in when I make quick turns such as backing out of a parking spot, turning onto a road, etc...any idea what could be wrong?!

I still say it's the wheel hub assembly. But sounds like a front one now. If you are turning right and it happens, it's your left one. That assembly does everything from sensors to wheel bearings.

It looks like your ABS/Traction control cables going to the speed sensor on one side is going open intermittently. Had the same problem on mine on the right side cable was bad. Replaced it haven't had a problem since the ABS/Traction lights were coming on hard turn to the right side. I fouund the problem with an ABS brake tester that checks the abs brake system and speed sensor cables. I bought an ACTRON CP9449 ABS Brakescan is how I found the problem it will store the codes for it that can be read out with it. Replace both cables

I'm having a similar issue when I turn left after backing up. I'm sure it's the cables.

Same here. I had my right wheel hub assembly replaced in march (because the bearings was horrible and hasn't been changed in who knows when). The problem I am going through is the right turn from anywhere (out of a park, from a corner,etc) and the traction kicks on constantly. I was thinking maybe I got a defective new part from the store or maybe I needed to buy both hubs so I wouldn't go through the near death experience later on in life. But yes, I am having the same problem. I didn't think about getting a sensor scanner. Nice idea!

This has been a problem on the monte carlo and the cables were redesigned for both sides and I think I got them at GM parts direct each was in the $30 dollar range.

I found the part numbers for the speed sensor cables related to the tracktion control problem I used to get both the abs/traction light would come on and the traction control would work right either correctly makeing a right hand turn. The part numbers for the cables are 10340313 and 10340314 on a 2002 Monte Carlo they maybe same for others go to GMPARTSDIRECT.COM

I figured that's what it was today...it was raining, so it was wet and then the whole service tractin system, abs, traction off all lit up... I'm really getting sick of it... this will be the 7th time replacing one of these stupid things...ugh! And to top it off, the catalytic converter, or what I believe to be, is going as well...

I have had to many problems with 2002 monte transmission went at 55k, rotors 4 times idiot dealer fixes, and now sometimes starts and doesn't related to the VATS ignition switch failure or its' intermittent. I rather be driving my Toyota Pickup more reliable at least. The monte always had problems I fix myself taking it to a dealer would bee $88 to evaluate and $90 na hour plus parts estimate around $500-600 to fix it. It definitely sounds like you got the speed cable sensor problems use ot show when it was wet now that I think of. The wheel bearings and sensors are most likeley OK.
