I have a 2011 and in the last 3 weeks the "service traction control " message has come up on the dash. Anyone else have a problem with this ? The first time was pulling out of a baitshop which had me spinning all four wheels pretty fast, the second time was cruising down a road about 20mph ? Dealer said something about icing, I assume on the wheel speed sensors. I will be bringing it in soon as warranty ends in about 400 miles

Why would you bring it in after the warranty

I think he meant:

I will be bringing it in soon, (comma) as (the) warranty ends in about 400 miles

Had the truck at the dealer yesterday. No codes / problems found by dealer. I thought if these error messages come up it automatically threw a code? At least its been documented by dealer in case something comes up again in the near future.

from the GM service manual,the last one is the kicker


Action Taken When the DTC Sets



One or more of the following actions may occur:

The EBCM disables the antilock brake system (ABS)/traction control system (TCS) and vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES) for the duration of the ignition cycle.


The ABS indicator illuminates.


The StabiliTrak indicator illuminates.


The driver information center (DIC) displays All Wheel Drive Off/Service Traction Control/Service StabiliTrak message.

<a href="http://gsi.xw.gm.com...644972#N65696">
Conditions for Clearing the DTC



The condition for the DTC is no longer present.


The EBCM clears the history DTC when a current DTC is not detected in 40 consecutive drive cycles
