TRACTION CONTROL

Chevrolet Venture

My wife had a tire replaced on our 01 venture while in Florida. Ever since then the traction control comes on for no reason. Her brother said it was because they didn't connect something back to the tire. Is this something simple that I could reconnect myself?

There is a speed sensor on each wheel. This sensor tells the traction /abs and pcm what each wheel is doing at a given time. Abs adjusts each brake by using these sensors. Look for a curved wire and you'll find the sensor. It is possible that they knocked the plug off or broke the sensor when replaceing the tire. Hope this helps.
