    2002 grand am with the trac off light comes on and automatic transmission shifts hard. After my mechanic and transmission shop replaced speed sendor and didn't fix the problem, they suggested to replace the body control module. This doesn't seem right. Any help?

    Very likely a wheel speed sensor or one of the wires leading up to them. Very commonly, the sensors get dirty, at which point they may be cleaned or just have to be replaced.

The trac off light can be occumpanied by an ABS light, or check engine light. The ABS or engine control module would need to be scanned first. Many codes will disable the traction control system.

Hey I had the same problem and had the codes cleared but the trac off light came back on and my tranny still shifts hard. I checked the IAT sensor and took the ground off to reset the computer, it work for a little bit, even the shifting was better, then the light came back on and the hard shifting came back also. Anyone with the right answer will have saved me tons of grief and headaches! PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!

    My 02 SE 2.2L had a similar issue today. It shifted hard, then had no power when I pressed the gas with trac off and service engine light on came on. I figured it was a transmission as I coasted to a stop and fluid was rapidly coming out from under neath. Upon further inspection, it was water, and it was cool water. The car never stalled and did not over heat. The water was coming from an open port on the firewall. It would start but run choppy. When it cooled down by the time the tow truck driver got there, it started and moved like nothing was wrong. Did not do extensive driving. Just had ignition control module replaced about 2 weeks ago and its at the shop now. I will post what is the issue and the fix.

If you mean the IAT sensor (code p0113)was unplugged, then the codes will need to be cleared for the the trans to shift properly again.

Trac off light is on and check engine light is on, toyota yaris 2012


You would need to have the engine computer checked for trouble codes to proceed. The trac light off would be on anytime the check engine light is on.

2001 grand am died while driving wont start back trac off light came on along with engine light


The trac light probably came on because the engine light came on.
You would need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes, and find out if you are missing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to proceed with testing.

Anti-lock light is on, trac off light is on, and says service trac system


ABS and traction control use some of the same components.
You would need to get the body computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with troubleshooting the two systems.

My engine light and trac off light is on. what does the trac off light mean?


The traction control system uses the engine to slow down or speed up the car when necessary.
If the check engine light is on the traction control will not work.
You may have a problem with both systems, but having the computers scanned for trouble codes will point you in the right direction.
