Brakes problem
2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 88000 miles

sometimes the ABS and TCS lights stay on. Also, when wheel is turned left of right, the low traction light will come on periodically. Also, when turning rt or left, there is sometimes a 'rattling' in the front end. I am thinking CV boot? Anyone have any thoughts

Do you

Yeah your cv joints need replacement. Thats what is causing the low traction light.

9 times out of 10, it is much cheaper to replace the entire axle with the cv joint already in it, than it is just to replace the cv joint alone, because there is so much labor involved in just doing the cv joint. So weigh your options and dont be afraid to get a second and third opinion if necessary, and we are here for advice.
