My car occasionally shows the Traction Control warning. When the light comes on, there is a loud crumbling sound coming from the front end of the car. This stops for a while, if I turn the car off and start it up again. They couldn't find the cause for this at the dealership. Could you give me some advice? Thank you in advance.
