Attention warning lights come on when turning

i have a 2008 VUE with approx 170,000 miles, lately when i make a turn (most of the time its a right turn) the Traction off light, brake light, and the other light dealing with traction and stability come on and the brake on sound beeps a few times, then the beeping stops and brake light goes off but the other 2 stay on until i turn car off. Any possible ideas on causes?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Check your brake fluid at least.

I've attached ABS/TCS/SCS explanation extracted from service manual (apologies if you understand system).

Similar problems have been caused by loose or damaged wheel speed sensor connector (WSS) or interconnect wiring to EBCM.

A "tired" WSS could also be failing by not sending expected signal at low speeds to EBCM.

Its likely one or more trouble codes have been stored to identify the problem. GM dealers and better repair shops will have a code reader to read codes and most likely isolate problem to specific area.

A few questions:

1. are the turns low speed type (not highway driving)?
2. do you need brake pedal pushed when turning to cause lights?
3. if FWD - can you lift front end - run engine in gear at slow speed and turn steering wheel to see if you can duplicate problem?

File Type: pdf 08 Vue - ABS D & O.pdf (30.6 KB, 3 views)

...
I don't spend much time on forum but do answer private messages (they alert my phone). Include email address if you need pdf extracts. Don't use visitor message feature as I forget to check those.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
