Traction control engaging
 
Sup?! I noticed when I'm turning hard left, (more like a full circle) my traction control seems to be engaging. I feel it coming from the front left. I also feel a lil rubbing too!! Whatcha think?!

check your power steering fluid, i had that prob on my jeep and it was pretty low. it would only do it on left turns.

if it is the problem, you can only use the fluid from the dealer

I am not savvy to lifts and stuff but isnt there an issue people have with a lift and bigger tires that people have to get the special progammer to deal with the esp freaking out.

Hmmmm I have he diablo predator tuner and haven't changed anything but the tires when I got them. I dont think it's the fan though. Feels like the left tire is hitting the wheel well kinda. Also when I accelerate hard, it feels like it pulls a little.

ha ha, no I was commenting on the statement made about what the powersteering fluid did. it is power steering and also provides hydraulic power for the cooling fan...

btw your sure your not rubbing?

I am almost positive I saw a TSB on the Traction Control engaging in turns and when going over bumps. You may want to check your year/model out here:
