    Anyone else with any kind of lift running into the problem of the traction control for the anti skid kicking in on like off ramps and sharp curves in the road. i did some reading and i guess it has to be recalibrated. Just another topic really!

    YES that and I have noticed hitting a small bump like pothole as I'm accelerating it kicks in and slows me way down. Kinda a bad feature as it could cause an accident if I'm trying to punch it.

    I was able to turn traction control off however that solid light is still on. Manual says it should reset after a short time. Not sure how long.

    your check engine light is on too.....check the gas cap.

    if it doesn't go off in a couple of days, it may be the fuel pressure sensor. Mine's just like that. Been on for about a month. Getting it fixed in another month or so.

    I didn't start the truck yet. It goes off after I start except that little light. reading on other forums, it eventually goes away after the computer does its checks the next time you drive. Will see tonight when I get back home from work. thanks bro for the help.

    At least yours has the light on. I wouldn't try to reset it. Take it to the dealership or a good independent and run techstream to find out what's wrong. Mine goes off in certain corners, but everything tests out normal.

    I had that happen 4th of July at the beach. Extra soft sand, traction control kicked in three times and the light stayed solid, in 4HI. Checked it with techstream and the stored code was C1234, yaw rate sensor. I cleared the code and was good for three days. Then, again soft sand the light came on in the morning, traction control didn't activate that I noticed. Going back in the evening the light went off after about two miles, still in the sand. Checked for stored codes and it was C1234 again. I saved the freeze frame, it's on my wife's laptop where the techstream is installed. I'll post it here when I get a chance. I'm leveled only, never did the ZPC, but never had any problems either. Things that make you go Hmmmm?
