Traction Control Activating on Left Turns


Recommended Posts

Anyone having issues with the traction control cutting on and applying brakes?  Truck is activating brakes & traction control system when turning left. Also, sporadically applying brakes and displays “hill start active” when not on hills. Dealer is waiting on GMs direction- speed sensors, wheel hubs, etc

Yep, mine did it a couple of times and I didn’t really think too much into it- then it got to where it was doing it every time- traction control continued to activate and pump the abs- dealer has had it for 3 weeks now and GM Engineering has had them pull speed sensors etc with no fix. GM is having them replace speed sensors- however, no parts are available. Needless to say, I am pretty disappointed. Deemed inoperable

That sucks, hopefully you got a good loaner

Speed sensors replaced, no fix- ABS Traction Control activated as soon as the first turn. The dealer will be attempting to replace one of the front hub assembly’s
Anyone else who may be experiencing this should definitely report. Will update

I have a 2020 denali that is having this issue but seems to be milder than some of yours. For me, on very tight left hand turns while going down a grade. For instance the local McD's does it to me every time here. Going around the parking lot there is a left turn going downhill. The ABS kicks in and the traction control light flashes. It feels like it is only happening in one wheel up front but I can't be sure. It does not cause me to stop. If I go slow enough or try to widen out the turn a little bit then I can keep it from happening. In my mind, this has to be a sensor calibration issue, my bet is they can fix it with an ecm flash. Since it doesn't happen often, and doesn't happen at all unless in that specific situation for me, I've decided to wait until there is a tsb to get it fixed, I don't really want any down time on the truck.

Update:

truck has been out of service for 6 weeks now- new speed sensor (no fix), new wheel hub (no fix), new calibration (no fix). Did something with the steer angle sensor and thought that may work after the tech test drove, did one final test drive yesterday before telling me to come pick it up and the truck began engaging traction control and ABS on left turns, so they have another request into TACS. The dealer has another brand new Denali Duramax on the lot that is doing the same thing. If anyone has any info, it would be greatly appreciated. $80k experiment truck, trying so hard to remain patient, it’s getting tough though.

I calibrated these systems in the past.  I would be really looking at longitudinal and lateral acceleration sensors.  I believe these are contained in the air bag module (SDM).  I would probably see if these signals could be zero'd or recalibrated.  I would look at the mounting of the module and make sure it is sitting flush (seen issues before where welding flash on a stud made module not sit flush when torqued up).  With you having a hill start issue (using long acceleration to determine grade) and issues with torque reduction in corner (looking at lateral acceleration sensor), I would start there.

Just an FYI, wheel hub, speed sensors, re-cal all failed to fix the issue. Tech is working with GM Engineering (something regarding a steer angle sensor). Multiple Denalis on the lot are doing the same thing. If anyone has any info, would be greatly appreciated!

Newbie here, found this because my 2020 2500 with 150 miles on it started to do the same thing - second time out driving noticed it. Last night did the same thing on dry pavement when turning downhill with brake on to pull into my driveway. I am curious before I call the dealer if anyone has heard of or found a fix for this?

Ok, very similar to my issue- mine does it on left turns even when I am not applying the brakes, and has began to do it on flat turns as well. I will update after I meet with field engineer, they have been data logging and sending the info to GM Engineering.  The dealership is able to duplicate it just pulling into their lot- they have tried a number of things- swapping parts, calibrations etc and they have not been able to fix it yet.

      I recently bought a (Gen 3) LQ4.
      I'm trying to swap this into an (Gen 4) 07' Silverado which uses 58x Reluctor, 4x Cam Gear, Front Timing Cover/Crank Sensor, and 2 Knock Sensors located in the sides of the block.

      I have a (Gen 4) Truck, So the timing cover/ crank sensor/ knock sensors can be used. I also have a (Gen 4) ECM/Harness.
      I know I need to get 58x Reluctor Gear put on & get a 4x cam gear already

      My questions are as follows:
      1. Can I put a 4x Cam Gear on a (Gen 3 Cam) ? or do I need to get a (Gen 4 Cam) for the (Gen 4 Cam Gear) to work ?
      2. Can I use the (Gen 4 Knock sensors) on the side of the (Gen 3 LQ4) ? Just drill/tap & mount them ?
      3. If I keep the (Gen 4 Fuel Setup) could I just install that on the (Gen 3 LQ4) ?

      Any help or advice will be appreciated.
      I'll be documenting everything so others will have better knowledge when putting a Gen 3 Block into a Gen 4 Vehicle. 
      Thanks guys !

      Thanks for the add. Greetings All!! 👋
      Going to start my membership, by asking what I hope is an easy question.
      On an online site, they have a deal on a power retractable tonneau cover that I really like, (like same price as non-powered), but I also just installed a Weather Guard tool box. 
      My hope/want is that I can put the retractable canister in back of the toolbox, (tailgate side) and then mount my onboard air tank under it, with the compressor in the toolbox.
      Finally my question is; will the electric cover stop at my tailgate automatically? I understand I have to cut the rails to accept the canister in the different location, but the cover stopping in the correct stop has me guessing what other mods I’ll have to do.
      please help ASAP, as I do not know how long this deals gonna last. Thank you!
      Collin

      Hi there, I just put an AFE Power Momentum HD cold air intake on my 2020 Sierra 2500 AT4 and since I did that I have a pop-up that says "Check Engine Air Filter System" every time that I start the truck. When I scroll on the info page to "Air Filter Life" option it says "Check System". Does anyone know how to disable the filter life so that I do not receive these? 
       
      Thanks

      Hey guys, 
       
      Cold weather has made me take out my winter front for my grille for the first time. It has a convenient hole for the camera but looks awful as 4 inches of the grill on either side are still showing. Is everyone else’s like this or did the dealership give me the wrong one?
