I have a Vauxhall Zafira Elegant 16V Auto and the Traction

This answer was rated:

I have a Vauxhall Zafira Elegant 16V Auto and the Traction Control Light comes on and when this happens the power drops and it drives like a box of spanners. It has been to my local garage and they have changed two sensors and also changed the transmission oil. It started fine with no light, but after a couple of short journeys the same problem came back. It comes on and the power drops off. Turn the engine off, leave for a while then turn it back on and no light. Can anybody help solve this frustrating problem.

Which sensors were replaced?

Thanks. The camshaft and crankshaft sensors have been changed Mike.
The input and output speed sensors is what causes this problem to happen. I am also a warranty inspector and I have inspected this issue many times.
