The powertrain message is coming of for the wheels are not turning the same. Check the wheel speed sensors and see if there is any broken axles or stuck brakes that could cause a wheel to be at a slower rate than the others. Repair any wheels that are turning at a slower rate. Check for any codes that could be stored in the computer (ECM) to give you a starting place for diagnosing your vehicle.
