    Could be a bad sensor at one of the wheel hubs....also make sure your traction control button in in the ON position....its down by your AC controls.

    *****The Below Information is on Re-Setting......The Traction Control System*****

    turn the steering wheel clockwise from the nine o’clock position to the three o’clock position. If this clears the message(s), the vehicle does not need servicing. If this does not clear the message(s), then turn the vehicle off, wait 15 seconds, and then turn it back on again to reset the system. If any of these messages still appear on the DIC, the vehicle should be taken in for service.

    Other wise you may be going to the dealer....

    I would have to agree with the previous post. The information that he provided to you can also be found on page 382 of your owner's manual. The following can also be found on page 286. The SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL message will appear if your vehicle has StabiliTrak®, this message displays when there is a problem with the Traction Control System (TCS). When this message displays, the system will not limit wheel spin. Adjust your driving accordingly. See your dealer for service. Please feel free to keep us updated regarding the fix. Thank you in advance.

    Tricia, GM Customer Service.
