As long as it does'nt stay on it's doing what it's suposed to be doing which is saving you from going out of control. It'll come on more often if you drive like hell, run with low tracktion tires or worn out ones and if the air pressure is low. If your tires have over 80,000 miles on them even if the tread is still good their bad tires as their skating along and the trackstion system is working hard to keep the car under control. If the tires aren't al the same size it'll do it to. ( fronts worn out backs still with tread.) Mis matched tires too. Ifthe light stays on other light's are bound to be coming on too the ABS light the brake light, and even the engine light as their all involved in traction control.
If the light came on and stayed on and its kind of shapped like (...) then i think its the TPMS light. Tire pressure monitoring system. Check all the tires on your car ( including the spare) once you have checked all the tires and found the one that is low, find the small round black button under the steering column and while the car is running, push and hold the button untill the yellow light goes out.
Since your question is listed as a 1999 Saturn SL and a Toyota 4Runner, I will answer both:
1999 Saturn SL Typically the orange exclamation point dash warning light is indicating a problem with your brakes, parking or hand brake. Check to ensure that your emergency brake is completely disengaged.
Check to ensure proper brake fluid level.
Otherwise this could be indicating a problem with the ABS system.
04 Toyota 4Runner
Low tire air pressure. Inflate to approximately 32 PSI should correct your problem.
You have a low tire. Toyota Solaras and other Toyotas have tire sensor monitors. Go to a gas station and check the air on all of your tires including the spare. Once you get to the recommended pressure, you should be fine.
That horseshoe-looking warning icon on your instrument panel is a cross-section of a tire. It indicates that tire pressure is low in one or more wheels. It may also inndicate that one or more tire-pressure sensors in the wheels is faulty (small battery is worn out). The air valves on yoiur rims are equipped with pressure sensors, mounted on the inside of the rim. These sensors send a wireless signal to an on-board sensor that reports low tire pressure or faulty sensor. So, check your tire pressure. It may take a few days for that icon on the dash to extinguish.
