    Default When making a sharp turn traction control warning service vehicle soon

    I read some about this problem. Purchased a service manual to trouble shoot my C5. I'm unable to find the section on traction control system. I don't want to take it to the Dreaded Dealer. Any suggestions. Thanks very much.

    Default Thanks Jane Ann

    I can live with it but like things to be perfect
    or close to it as possible. I was hopping it wasn't a sign of something worse fixn to happen.

    Thanks,
    Mo

    Is the Service Manual you purchased a three-volume, factory service manual or an aftermarket "service manual" such as Chilton or Haynes?

    Check for codes, see
    Pulling Codes on a C5

    probably a 128X related to the steering wheel position sensor.

    If I can help by eliminating duplicates and getting your thread where it will receive the most attention, then I've done what I'm s'posed to.

    Again - welcome to our little forum and good luck with your fix!

    Default C1287H and C1288H codes pops up

    I know the H means history but no other codes are showing. How much trouble is it to change out the steering wheel position sensor?

    The swps is about $65.00 at GMPartshouse.com. It takes about 2.5-3 hrs to replace. Just had to replace mine on my 04. Unless you are comfortable working around the airbag, it is a job for the pros.

    It is not that hard, the hardest part is removing the steering column. Just remember not to turn the steering wheel after removal so you do not unwind or over wind the clock spring for the air bag system.
