Help! My 2001 Chevy is a piece! Trac light on, wont go up hill, high rpm's

Trac off light is on and my car wont go up a hill. every time i get to going up one the car struggles and feels like it is surging forward trying to pull itself up the hill. Im running between 40 and 50 mph by the time I get partially up the hill with the rpms running really high 2500-3000 for my car. It normally runs at 2000. I ran the car at a constant hwy speed of 75-80 mph for a 2 hr trip to the doctor one day and the thing hasnt been right since. Help! thats the best info I can give ya about it.

SOURCE: low trac light

I had the exact same problem with my 2004 Cavlier. I took it in and the dealer said it was a voltage problem with my speed regulator located in one of my wheel bases. I had it replaced under my extended warenty. I suguesst taking you car to a mechnanic as soon as possible, cause it could be that sensor, or an electrical issue all together. Especially if it is that sensor, since it effects your braking system, traction system, and the overall drivability of the car.

SOURCE: trac light on no power at acceleration

you might need a new catalyic converter
if not i would suggest that you get your sensor checked
these can be a problem the sensor thinks the wheel is slipping and cuts the torque and power down this could be what is happening
also could because of airflow control with the catalyic converter

Replace the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). $30 to $40 if you do it yourself or $70 to $95 if you have a service station do it. This will fix all of your problems related to the TRAC OFF light and transmission shifting into low gear.

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.

Very common problem with GM vehicles. It's usually caused by a bad wheel speed sensor. Get the trouble codes read so you know which wheel is causing the problem. Then do the diagnostic. Getting the trouble code is ALWAYS the first step.

Trac off and check engine light for lexus es 300 check engine & trac control off lights & engine stutters while revving in park. Engine seems fine in drive... Reset lights without them returning...


A week ago, on my Lexus ES 300 (2001), "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights came on. This coincided with me filling the gas tank to the brim to round the dollar to be paid. I cleaned the gas tank cap and the tank opening. However, both lights persisted. On the same day, when I turned on the car again, there was a hesitance, a stuttering to come on. Both "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights were still on.

The next day, the car wouldn't come on at all. It sounded as the battery was dead. I couldn't even jump start the car. So, I got a new battery from Costco ($59) and put it in. It took 15-20 seconds of cranking to get the car started. Once it was started, the engine sounded fine and the RPM normal. The "Check Engine" light was off. However, the "Trac Off" was still on. I cleaned the gas tank cap one more time.

The next morning, when I turned the car on, there was no problems. It came on instantly as it used to be, didn't have any warning lights, and drove smoothly.

A bytton in my car an when i push it the letters trac on


the button is for a feature call low traction , when the low trac light is on ( on the dashboard ) the traction control system is off. when you press the button again the light should go off ( low trac. on) I leave mine on all the time. it works with the antilock brake system. if the computer detects that the wheels are starting to slip or slide , it cycles abs on and off quickly to help you remain in control of car, feature is more designed for driving on icey roads. Just leave low trac. on and dont worry about it ( no trac, light on dash) hope this helps S.R. Peace
