In '05, the 2 wheel drive trucks had traction control. the 4x4 trucks did not. I had a 4x4 truck, so I can not use that truck as an example; however, my Avalanche has traction control, and the dash light will light when the traction control is active.

What you are feeling, is the brake (for the wheel that is loosing traction) being applied.

i drove a rental 05 swb 2wd with traction control and the light did light up when i lost traction.
I'm sure this is normalo, without a light to tell you TC is active, the driver would be saying "What da hell's wrong with my truck"

I have an 05 2wd and no traction control :confused: unless the Canadian models had it and the US ones didn't

I have traction control on mine...its down under the HU by the cup holders and that will light up when the car looses traction. Unless I turn it off then the light off is on. Which I leave it on :thumbsup:
