I was pulling out of a gas station tonight and I was accelerating pretty hard, trying to see how the new tires handle in the nasty weather, and I hit a good sized bump and it was like my truck shut off. The traction light came on and it wouldn't let me acclerate for close to 10 seconds. Is that normal?

Yes, thats normal!

The stability control will cut wheel speed down by reducing engine power. It does this by de-activating cylinders. My 07 Trailblazer scared the PISS out of me when I experienced it the first time. Bought it new in 07 winter time in NJ and accelerated hard onto a highway, >BAM<, no power, then suddenly came back.

Talk to the dealer....supossedly there is a update for the stability control that allows more spin. I got mine tuned and de-graded the traction control function....only limits a little bit.

Also, on the shifter, there is a button, if you press it once, it turns off the traction control, press it again and it turns it back on, hold it down for about 5 seconds and it turns off the stability control.


I hated the first time it happened and it almost seems dangerous especially in NJ where drivers drive like they're in NASCAR!!!!

:iagree: i have a TBSS 2WD... big mistake in winter... that light was on so much i wouldve thought it was part of the instrument panel :rotfl:
