Buick has been a brand of GM for over 100 years now. In that time, they have manufactured numerous models that were best-sellers among car buyers. Some of these models are still sold today. For example, there are a number of people who still own or drive their old Buicks every day because they are so reliable and high-quality cars that have been built to last for decades.

The 2017 Buick Enclave is one of the most popular models in the Buick lineup. It is a mid-size crossover SUV with a stylish design and features that make it a great car for buyers who want to have a luxury car but are not looking for something that is too large or too expensive. However, it does have its fair share of traction control problems.

Malfunctioning Speed Sensors

One of the most common problems that the Buick Enclave suffers from is the malfunctioning of the speed sensors. It can happen even after a car has been serviced. These speed sensors are responsible for sending information about the speed that your car’s wheels are moving in. The speed sensor then uses this information to adjust and monitor the traction control.

Therefore, if these sensors malfunction. It will be hard for the traction control to keep track of your car’s wheels. Look out for your ABS light to come on, which will usually let you know if the speed sensors need to be fixed.

Malfunctioning Anti-lock Brake System

An anti-lock brake system (ABS) is designed to prevent your car from moving if you apply the brakes suddenly. It works by preventing the wheels from locking up when you press on the brake pedal. If the ABS malfunctions, it will be hard for your car to stop quickly, which can cause problems during a sudden stop.

ABS malfunctions can be caused by a number of things, including your tire pressure being too low or too high, defective sensors or wiring within your car’s suspension system that prevent it from working properly, or wiring issues within your ABS system itself. You may need to have the brakes repaired if these issues persist, since it can pose safety hazards.

Worn Out Steering Rack

A steering rack is a part of your car’s steering system that connects the wheels to the front wheels. It helps guide the wheels so that they can be steered. A worn out steering rack can cause a number of problems, including the inability to steer properly, even if you apply just a little bit of pressure on the steering wheel.

This can cause other problems as well, such as not being able to hold a straight line or driving with too much lean. The wear and tear on your steering rack can also cause it to shake and shudder when you turn or change lanes. This is dangerous and needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
