A common cause for a Traction light is a faulty front ABS wheel speed sensor or harness. When the Anti lock brake computer sees a problem in the ABS syetm, it disables traction control as well.

My trac off abs and service vehicle soon lights are all on mechanic said wheel barrings are fine ,,whats the problem and is it safe to drive 425 mile out of town and back?


Probably just a wheel sensor out. It will be fine to drive that far and back. You wont have tracton control or antilock brakes. Meaning that if you slam on the brakes the tire can lock up and skid. When the abs is out it reverts to the old braking system that they used in all vehicles for decades.

98 oldmobile regency won't start up and check


Well the fact that the traction light came on and blinked off when taking off is a good thing, it just means that your traction control is working properly. When that light comes on it means that one wheel was spinning and that the car adjusted the speed of the drive wheels to compensate. The car not starting needs to be addressed as to whether the car is turning over slowly, clicking, or making no noise at all. The check engine light will remain on until the vehicle is started, so that does not correlate to your problem. If it clicks, or turns over sluggishly, then it just needs a jump start and a test of the battery. If the lights come on, but the car does not turn over al all, then you may need to look at replacing a starter.

2001 olds ABS and traction control sensor issue


An ABS sensor DOES affect the traction control system. Traction control uses these sensors to determine if a wheel is losing traction. A bad sensor will cause both the ABS and TRACTION lights to come on.
The CHECK ENGINE light however is going to be a seperate problem.
