Question about 2003 Chevrolet Impala
My uncle asked me to lookat his car. I drove it and found: 1. Ignition key takes wiggling to get it to turn on. 2. The Traction light and ABS light in the dash cluster are on (the traction button on the dash doesn't do anything. The red light doesn't work when pushed) The ABS light wil turn off intermittently but comes back on. 3. When I use the turn signal to move over a lane on the highway, I can feel the engine misfire. 4. The battery light comes on when slowing down to a stop but then turns off. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
The common element to me is the battery - bad voltage can upset the computer.

I had the same problem with mine. All you have to do is replace the hazzard switch. It costs about 40 bucks for the switch, and takes about ten minutes to replace. Just take off the dash cover and swap them out.
Hope I helped!

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.
