TRACTION ACTIVE DASH LIGHT

2004 Cadillac Escalade

Transmission problem
2004 Cadillac Escalade V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 68,000 miles

Sometimes after stopping at a stop light, when I press on the gas the car slows as the traction activated light comes onto the dash. It seems like it is trying to shift or activate the traction device. This happens often. Do you know the cause, is it common? What do I need to do to have it fixed?
thanks, Chris

Do you have all the same size tires with relatively uniform wear on them. Another possibility is a wheel speed sensor that is reading incorrectly and registering one wheel at a different speed than the others. This would require the use of a scan tool that can read ABS data, to track it down.
