I went to automotive school for a while and studied this. (which in no way makes me right). But i had tons of ABS problems with an old z28 of mine. I wasnt trying to be an a$$hole, sorry i it seemed that way..
I was just trying to make it clear that its not limited to a traction control problem. I think they do however have a shared control module, because both of them rely on inputs from the wheel speed sensors in order to function. So, they go hand in hand. I Think we are on the same path and have different ways of wording it.
Bottom line, as you quoted: if your ABS is off then your TC has no way of working.
I'd put money on it that homie has a bad ABS control module. (assuming that the light keeps comming on).
I'd say Best way to figure is to plug a scanner into it and check. Who knows you may get lucky and have a dirty sensor!
