The T/C Light should be the traction control. In all likelihood, it may be indicative that the brakes need servicing. If you have not serviced the brakes in some time, it may be a good idea to check the condition of both the front and rear brakes. I would think that the traction control would be on the front brakes. The sputtering of the engine may or may not be related to the brakes, but I would start there first. If brakes are making the vehicle hesitate, they could be forcing the engine to work too hard to function. I would definitely start with the brakes and move from there. Once you have addressed the brakes there is a high likelihood that the check engine light will go off. If it does not have a reputable auto part store check for any trouble codes in the On Board Computer to get an idea of what else could be wrong. The Brakes should not be ignored in that they are your last defense in controlling the vehicle.
Good luck and happy motoring.
you could have a stuck switch .....check your traction control switch on your dashboard....engage and disengage it , while paying attention to the rpms...notice any change...if you do notice a change, then replace the switch....if no change, it is probably on the trans itself and should not be a dealer only fix....your local reliable trans shop should be able to fix you up without emptying your entire wallet.
99 chev cavalier 2.2 problem: Driving along doing 70kms car just dies the only instrument light that came on was the oil light, radio and everything else still working. Shut it off checked oil, plenty in it. Tried to start it and it just wouldn't grab.
Check engine light is for telling you that there is A problem with the fuel injection or emissions system, Most of the time there is no major problem to really wory about. ETS is the light for the Enhanced Traction system (traction control) This is not A vital component of your car. If these two lights come on together then the extra traction sensor is broken and needs to be replaced when the sensor is fixed the check engine light will go off and the ets light will work properly again.
Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, ABS Or TC lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. The number of codes that can turn the light on number in the hundreds. I would take it to a service center you trust and let then come up with a solution. Sometimes a problem in one system will turn light on for other systems that communicate with it, but it doesn't mean there is a problem in all of the systems.
