I can't answer the question about the gas fumes, but I had the same problem last year with the "Service Traction Sysytem" message and the Trac and ABS lights coming on in my Impala. Mine turned out to be because of a bad wheel bearing, that was causing the ABS and traction system not to work. I'm not sure if you've experienced this, but another thing that would happen with mine was that I would go to brake and have a hard time depressing the brake pedal, almost like it was pushing back. That is the point when the Trac and ABS lights came on.

Trac on does not help traction whatsoever totally helpless when snow or ice---not sure it has worked since new when press steering column button to turn trac off---will show trac off on dash----and when...

The traction light only shows when it is turned off. If the traction control wasn't work, the van would show a code aka engine light would come on. Tracation Control only works at speeds below 35 mph.

Trac off light

The traction control works in tandom with the ABS system. You have two ABS on the front right wheel and one on the front left. You'll have to take the wheels off to get to them. Once the wheels are off, look in the back side of the wheel bearings and you will see a ring with teeth like protrusions... kinda like "little Gears". If you are not sure where to look just follow the CV axles from the transaxle to the spindles. They are located on the ends of the cv axles. If you notice and debris or grease on the gears then clean it off with some brakes clean. Also check the wires leading to the wheel speed sensors (aka abs sensors). be sure they are intact. The rings may be built into the wheel bearings themselves and if that is the case, you will have to replace the wheel bearings. There could also be a problem with the body control module. It would help alot to get it scanned if you feel you may have to replace something. No sense in shooting in the dark try to replace parts that don't need replacing. Hope this helps.

2003 Chevy Impala Service Traction Sytem show on Dash

most of the time it is a wheel bearing going out you should have it scanned to be sure. If it is a bearing the scan will also tell you the witch side the bearing is out.

Service traction system message on dash

This light is usually caused by a problem in the ABS system. A problem in the ABS system will dissable the traction control system. you will need to have the computers scanned for trouble codes.
