Hi there, is it ACTUALLY slipping? or is it restricting throttle because the traction system thinks it's slipping? I assume it's the latter?
Manual or automatic transmission?
When I put accelerator to floor, she hardly moves and " slip" comes up on the dash.
It clears itself now and again, but this doesn,t happen when you switch off traction control
Its an automatic transmission.
Ok thanks for the clarification.
This is caused by a faulty wheel speed sensor pick up signal. This could be from a bad wheel sensor itself or simply caused by rust at the sensors which is fairly common on this model.
What happens is the sensor signal receives the wrong wheel speed and so the ABS unit determined the difference in wheel speeds as a slip condition and prevents throttle restriction. When the traction control is OFF, then you deactivate the traction controls throttle restriction so it ignores the perceived slip condition.
So remove the wheel speed sensors at the rear wheels and clean up the all the rust and see if the problem goes away. thanks.
