Re: car won't start says check traction control
The car should still start even with somthing wrong with the traction control. sounds like you have a dead battery. i would check it first. and if battery is dead charge it and start the car then take it to your local advance auto and have the altinator checked thay do it for free. if a charged battery dont start the car then you may have a bad starter. again the traction control light will not keep the car fromk starting

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem. Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ? It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, key switch, or a list of other things.
Check the battery terminals real good.Make sure they are clean and tight.Check and see if any of the side terminals are leaking.
As far as the blower motor.It is more than likely that the blower motor resistor is bad.It is located by the blower motor.Hope this helps.Good luck.
pull out negative terminal battery located under rear right seat.wait for 5 min n then install again the lead negative terminal.insert the key to ignition cylinder.turn the key on off three times.now start the engine.make sure u use recommended fuel grade.
dip your tank with a wire. if quarter tank indeed fuelpump or safety valve not opening in supply under hood. Check connection. Valve is on all modern cars for fire hazard. Check the valve by takening it out and testing it. Could be wire harnes problem also. Or filter blocked.
