I think it's just a simple gizmo that sends a half-second 5 volt pulse to the circuit 30 seconds after the ignition is turned on. Probably child's play to make one, for someone who knows what they are doing.

Thanks for the TSB, measured the spacing and its definitely off. Need to buy a new sensor as it is completely frozen.


TCS - Low Traction Indicator ON With No Wheel Slip
Subject:
Low Traction Indicator Illumination with no Wheel Slip (Shim Wheel Speed Sensor)
# 06-05-25-005 - (12/19/2006)

Models:
2004-2006 Pontiac GTO

Condition

Some customers may comment that the low traction indicator may be illuminated with no wheel slip.

Cause

This condition may be caused by an insufficient air gap between the rear wheel speed sensors and the reluctor.

Correction

Check the air gap measurement between the reluctor and the speed sensors on both rear wheels. Adjust with a shim if required.
1. Check the air gap between the reluctor and the sensor on both of the rear wheel speed sensors. The air gap must be 1.5 mm (0.059 in) to 2.0 mm (0.079 in).

^ If the air gap is within specification and the customer concern is still present, refer to the appropriate diagnostics in SI.

^ If the air gap is less than 1.5 mm (0.059 in), a shim, P/N 90278359, must be used to achieve the correct air gap spacing.

1. Remove the speed sensor. Refer to Rear Wheel Speed Sensor Replacement in SI.

2. Install the shim.

3. Install the speed sensor. Refer to Rear Wheel Speed Sensor Replacement in SI.

2. Verify that the customer concern has been resolved.

PM user ID "CHA-LEE" and see if he still has or makes them.

i thought he wasn't a vendor any more. :scratch:

i still think it's pretty possible to easily make one yourself.

fwiw after this thread was made, i did some reading on basic PCB stuff and eventually drew up a circuit with a 555 IC timer. i haven't bought the components to try it to see if it works yet.

I am still wondering if i would need to use bleeder resistors for the two capacitors i have in the circuit. honestly, i haven't bothered to figure out how big the capacitors even need to be yet to time the two events. i just lost interest, lol. i might think about it again and buy some stuff on amazon to try it.

anyway, i'm sure most DIY'ers on this site could figure out something and try it. plenty of smart folks here.

Take a look at this site...
http://www.wolstentech.com/products/timedelayrelay/timedelayrelay.php

They have several options for 12v relays, with adjustable time delays. the relays are small and simple to adjust. Ive used some in the past to create a circuit that controlled amber/white LED stripes to work as turn signals and DRLs. The relay would get the turn signal trigger and allow the leds to flash amber, and then wait for the trigger again, once the turn signal cancelled there was no more trigger after 3 seconds or so, and it would switch back to white leds.

I haven't look at the site in detail in regards to this application, but i'm sure they have a relay that will be triggered by ignition power up, then can wait an user-adjusted amount of time, say 10 seconds, and then give a momentary trigger to the traction control switch to shut it off. I'll go look in more detail now.

The relays are all self-contained and only $32.

edit: I think the TDR-M would fit this application, the start up delay set to maybe 3 seconds, and the turn-off delay set to 1-2 seconds.

Recently acquired an 04 gto. It seems anytime over half throttle the traction control comes on, the pedal kicks back. Mods from previous owner are intake, catback exhaust and tune (hp tuners, which I have so I can make changes, just havent looked yet).

Looking for some insight if this would be a sensor issue, or tune related as I would like to be able to drive the car with TC on at times and not have to worry about turning it off lets say when merging on the highway at 60 or above?
Mine has behaved like that for last 15 years, even modified now. I always drive with it off.

interesting. it says it operates regardless of the length of the trigger signal, so... hmnn. it might work.

here i did all this reading up on 555 timers for nothing, lol.
