I think that is the new roller coaster at Six Flags....or a Microsoft spreadsheet training class.

OP.....how about giving us a DTC? $12 OBD code readers (at a minimum) should be owned by all.

If you mean the DIC reads traction control activated, that is normal if the rear tires spin and the nannies are on.

Also, one in a while you may get traction control or active handling calibrating (mostly in the winter time) and the system takes a min or two to calibrate/relearn, and all will go back to normal/

If your getting a service traction control, then need you to pull the DTC and list the codes. Hence problem could be as simple as one of the wheel hub speed sensor connector loose/dirty and just needs to be cleaned and connected correctly: which the DTC code will tell you which sensor as well. Also, need to know the sizes of the tires front and rear, and what size rims you have them mounted on. The C6 is looking for the rear tires to be 1.04" larger in diameter that the front tires. If the ratio is off by much, then the car is going to throw a fit with codes and warnings isntead.

Hey Rich, wise guys say **** codes either w/ your own reader or ask any parts store -- always a free service to customers.
Post code(s).

W/ codes wise guys can/will help ID likely culprit.
