Some customers may comment that the "Yellow" message, "Service Traction Active Handling", is illuminated on the Driver Information Center.
The technician may find chassis DTC C1288 -- Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES) Steering Wheel Sensor Phase A and B. When this code is set, the VSES is turned off; ABS and TCS remain operational.
Verify the Techline equipment has been updated with TIS software 12 or newer. If it has not been updated, do so now. This software was broadcast to dealerships on 11/13/01. Disc Number 12 will be mailed November 14, 2001.
GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
