2002 Buick Centry TRAC OFF light

Car has over 106,000 miles on it. Was traveling to Northern Arizona and it is mostly high mountains that you have to go up and down. The Trac OFF light on my panel came on for a while then it went off and it kept doing this through most of my traveling. Can anyone tell why it was doing this? Thanks :-)

    I have this problem with my 2003 Olds Silhouette. Traction control light and ABS lights are on. I had my hub assembly replaced and it is happening again after only a few miles. Could it also be a computer problem???

THATS IT JUST THROW PARTS AT IT

your traction control works off of the abs unit did your abs light come on also? if there is a problem with the abs it will shut off the traction control. might wanna have the abs system scanned for trouble codes.it is also possible the conditions you were driving in caused erratic readings so if it has not come back on it is probably ok

This light is triggered by sensor wires that go into the hub assembly. Replacing the hub assembly with a new one should fix this issue.

2002 Buick regal supercharge. Lights on dash service vehicle soon, ABS, and low Trac light come on every few days. What could it mean?


Your car battery may be on the way out, this can cause the ABS light to come on. ( this happened to my Mercedes 300c)

My problem is the same as most others. Anti-lock brakes, service engine soon, trac off lights on. Before they would come on intermittemtly bu recently stays on. Called GM last week and was told to take it...


Your anti lock brake light is part of your traction contol lights so that is most likely a wheel sensor and would be a separate problem from your check engine light.
Do you have an auto parts store near by? They can check these codes for free if so

1999 Buick century anti lock signal and trac off displayed when traveling over 60 miles per hour


You will be best off bringing the car in for service. If the anti-lock signal comes on, it means that your ABS system has a fault and you do not have anti-lock brakes functioning. When the light comes on the car runs on your brakes alone, no anti-lock.

To check the codes and the ABS system, the car should really be serviced.

Good luck!!

The security light came on my 2002 buick centry


The TDM in the security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it will get worse till the car wont start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

Feel safe about your trip as this a only warning lights that some issues are at hand concerning your car, it does not mean you can not travel 1000miles.

Just take your car for a scan and it will all be corrected.

ABS/SERCICE ENGINE SOON/TRAC OFF LIGHTS ARE ON


Are you sure of the lights? If it is Service VEHICLE Soon, in addition to Trac Off and Anti Lock, it is most likely one of the four wheel hub assemblies. These are sealed bearing units that feed a signal to the computer for the ABS brakes and the tire pressure system. I had one go out intermittently (seemed to be aggrivated by humidity/moisture). I had it replaced, and another one is going out. It seems like they are a bit prone to failure. My Century has 101K, and I experienced the first one around 75K miles. Unfortunately, to tell which one is failing requires a scan tool above and beyond the simple one that most parts stores use. BTW, there was a problem that was fixed just prior to 2002 that was caused by the signal wires going to the left front wheel hub being worn through and shorting. I believe this problem was fixed by 2002.
