Help traction control keeps going off!

Just changed out my front hub bearing and now the traction control keeps going off and won't allow me to go over 30. Anyone have any suggestions?

Bad or wrong wheel speed sensor in the hub. Or maybe some how needs to be calibrated with the cars compute

You can try resetting the steering angle sensor that can cause this. Simply turn your wheels full lock left and right or it may be in the alignment.

Atteray Havent figured it out yet but I did figure out a way to by pass the problem in the meantime so I can still drive. Hit the ESP OFF button located next to your hazard button. Your ESP light in your dash will now be on but you should not have any issues driving. Will keep you posted on how I fix this. I am going to try and take it to the mechanic to re-calibrate the computer.
