Your vehicle’s traction control system can be a lifesaver in unsafe or slippery conditions, such as ice, snow, or water. When your wheels can’t generate traction to move your car, your wheels can begin to spin. In particular, a traction control system prevents the wheels from spinning while the vehicle is accelerating. This system makes use of wheel speed sensors to detect slippage. If these sensors become damaged or another part of the system malfunctions, it could spell trouble for your car. If your warning light is on, don’t take any chances. Contact Chapman’s Garage today.
