2010 MALIBU, HAD FLAT LEFT SIDE TIRES, CHANGED WITH SPACE SAVER
AND ONE FROM ANOTHER VEHICLE. TRAC LIGHT ON WILL NOT SHIFT.
The TRAC light and shifting problems are caused by the
tires your are using. They are not the same size as the
other side, and maybe even the two space savers are
different sizes too. Get al the tires to match.
i have a trac light coming on every so often even on smooth roads after going on
rough roads. When i come to a red light and need to stop, it will sputter when i try
to go on the green, it wont go in reverse either, i have to put car in park, shut car
off, restart it, put car in gear to go before it will move. My car is a 2002 chevy
cavalier.

Sound like you have a few different things going on. You
may have a wiring problem causing all the issues. Check
the negative ground cable o the bottom of the battery
tray. This is a common area to have a loose, corroded or
broken cable.
Always check the cheapest/most likely things first: Loose or intermittent
connections to the wheel speed sensors or the ABS will make the light stay on.
Remember that when the light is ON it is indicating that the traction control is NOT
operational (cannot be engaged) because of a faulty connection or a
malfunctioning component in the system.
i have chevy Camaro 2010 and the traction light goes on when i turn right or left
and when i turn car off and on again. It is goes of after i turn right or left. Can you
tell me exactly where i have to look first ABS or there the other stuff in steering
system sensor.
Look at the wiring harness that is going to each front
wheel bearing hub. Those 2 wires are for the speed
sensor at each wheel. They tend to break inside the
insulation.
I have a 1998 pontiac grand prix gt 3.8L
Car acts funny when i get to 45mph (low trac light). So i turn off trac control, and it
drives fine. cpl miles later the abs light comes on. i know could be speed sensor,
but could it be a wire or connector also?

I have a diesel Toyota Prado, my abs and traction control light lights up on dash. It
show traction control off how do I fix factory dealer s computer says no fault test
okay.
I have a 1997 pontiac Grand Am GT 3100. The ETS light stays on and I can not
switch it on with the button.I have changed the brake pads,rotors and even bleed
the brakes. Nothing has changed. It has no codes in the OBD or any other lights.
Please help if you can.
First you have to be sure your scanner can read the ABS
computer. Just looking at the powertrain computer will not
show you anything. If there are no codes in the ABS
computer then you may just have a bad switch. Normally
a bad wheel speed sensor would cause the traction light.
TENGO UN PONTIAC AZTEK 2001, SE ME ENCENDIO EL SERVICE TRATION
SISTEM, EN OCACIONES AL FRENAR EL PEDAL TIRA HACIA RIBA VARIAS
VECES, ADEMAS EN OCACIONES EATA DANDO UN TIRON CUANDO EL CARRO
VA A PONER LA SEGUNDA O TERCERA VELOCIDAD.QUE SE ME RECOMIENDA
HACER.
I have a 2002 Cavalier and my trac off light came on last night and my car got stiff
and shut down.  I couldn't get it to restart afterwards.  The check engine light came
on too.  What could this mean?  I know I have a bad wheel bearing but I'm not sure
if this is at all related.
The TRAC light was nothing to do with you Cavalier
stalling and not starting back up. The check engine light
would be the place to concentrate on. Get the codes
scanned and check fuel pressure.
I have a 2000 pontiac grand am and the Trac off light and service engine light
have been popping on and off the last few days, any ideas what this could be? is it
possible to be a wheel bearing?
There's a picture on the dash that shows the car and it shows a square box on it.
My 2000 Pontiac Grand Am trac off light keeps coming on. When it does, it shifts
really hard. I've had it in to the mechanic twice in two weeks. They heehawed
around with the transmission now the light is off, but I have to ease up off gas to
get it to switch gears. Pre-mechanic it only had trouble shifting gears when I would
take off from a stop. Once it got going it was fine. The mechanic ran it on the
machine twice and both times the car came back with no issues. Clearly this isn't
accurate as the problem is worse.
Yes, possibly a wheel speed sensor- hub bearing.
Possibly a wheel speed sensor problem or loose
connection at the transmission connector that gets
moved around when hitting the gas and the engine
moves pulling on the harnesses.
