i just bought an 06 SE CC with 60k miles. it does not have the VDC button or diff lock button. its 4x4.

my problem is that sometimes when i am driving my "slip" and "brake" light will light up in the dash under normal acceleration. when it happens, i am accelerating from a dead stop and im not accelerating like a madman, i keep it under 2k rpms. both lights will come on and then i have to let completely off the gas for the "brake" light to go out, but the slip light will stay on. in order for the slip light to go out, i have to turn my truck off and when i start it back up the "slip" light is off. why is this happening and what can i do to fix it? any and all information would really be appreciated. i have read that it could be brake fluid level, so i will check into it, but what if thats not it?

It could be the brake fluid or one of the wheel speed sensors may be bad. Take it to an autoparts store that does free OBD readings d see if it pops a code.

DO NOT TOP IT OFF...Low brake fluid in a non-leaking car/truck means the brake pads are worn, have them checked first.

the brake fluid was just under the minimum line so i added some to the max line. hopefully this will solve my problem and as far as brake pads, i will check them tomorrow in auto tech.

Unless you have a leak (very unlikely) your pads are worn...Were do you think that fluid went?...It's in the calipers.

While Lou does have a very valid point, there is no reason not to top off the brake fluid level. Just remember that you did when you change the pads, as you will have to take some back out. This can be accomplished with a turkey baster right out of the top of the reservoir. Really not a big deal.

Oh, and the fluid level is your problem. Been Covered a lot around here.
