problem #5

Grinding noise from front and ABS engages the brakes and low traction light flashes on when accelerating from a stop and turning left at the same time, does not matter if you accelerate slow or fast and this is happening on dry pavement. If I turn off the traction control it will not do it, so I assume the problem must exist in a speed sensor or something with the traction control sensors or wiring. Of course mechanics cannot duplicate this. Waiting for GM to step up to the plate and fix.

First my service ABS traction control lights came on and while making left turns a loud metal grinding noise happened and my traction control light flashed. I took it to my local mechanic he replaced the bearing and sensors which helped with the service lights but the grinding still happened. The noise and traction control light still continued while turning just not as much as before. The mechanic replaced the part twice!! took it to my mechanic again because of the grinding and traction control flashing he drove it around and he could not make the noise happen so he could not fix or replace anything. It feels like the ABS is braking on its own for no reason while I drive my 2013 Impala ltz. My mechanics can not find the problem and it seems neither can any Impala owner or mechanic. But I'm 99% sure when I drive it tonight to visit friends I will hear a metal on metal grinding noise I just hope not while im on the freeway where I can get killed. It happens while driving coming from a stop or as simple as me backing out of my driveway.

Car warning lights come on for traction control breaks and throws car into oncoming traffic at random times without warning. It is very unsafe and is on a recall list. I should not been sold a lemon car.
