it seems that you are having connecting issues. under the dash are lots of connectors and through vibration the often times wiggle loose. also they get a fair amount of heat exposure from the climate control. this makes them brittle and they tend to short out. looking under the dash and checking fuses and relays would be the first step in isolating the problem. please rate this solution thanks and good luck.

I would replace the blower motor, this sounds like a motor brush problem inside the motor itself.

SOURCE: 99 Alero TRACK OFF light

I had a GrandAm that used to do the exact same thing. I checked the ABS sensors and the wires from them and I had a couple with bad sensors and one with corroded wires and connector plug. That is the most likely cause of your "track off" light problems.
