Traction control helps by controlling the engine power to the drive wheels to prevent wheel spin. When traction control is OFF then you can apply all power to the drive wheels and it could cause loss of control and or wheel spin.

Some traction control systems will apply the brake (slightly) on the wheel that is spinning faster. This transfers power to the wheel that has traction. When trac off light is lit, this feature is disabled. No big issue. Car should drive just fine. Will not cause a loss of control or anything. The owners manual covers the issue of how to turn on, and off, that option.

This is probably a speed sensor causing it. Is the ABS light on as well by some chance? If so the sensor should be about $65. Use a computer "the auto part store should be able to link up to your vehicle to narrow down which one it is" Should be easy to self replace.. Sometimes there are teeth knocked off of your half shaft that will cause it.. If so, its not really worth replacing the shaft.. Shouldn't cause problems later

What dose trac off mean


It means your traction control system is off.
If you are on a wet road for example and your wheels starts to slip, what traction control does if it is on, is to electronically slow down your wheels until you regain traction on the road again.

What does low track mean when it keeps poping up.


It means you have traction control. When it comes on, you are losing traction to one of your drive wheels and the traction control is activated to keep you moving. In other words, it's doing its job. Sounds like its working well too.

Track control pop on what do that mean and can I trim it off


Your traction control switch may be located on center IP fascia. below the front a/c control switch. Pls check your manual. You can turn it on or off and it will indicate visually on the insrument panel cluster. Normally the default mode is off,(traction light off) meaning the traction system is enabled and operational. If the light comes on while the engine is running and even without touching the switch, it only means that your traction control system have been disabled because the system has detected a fault; you can still run and proceed carefully in good brakes without the traction control system..However' you still need to have your vehicle scanned for codes to know the specific cause.

What does it mean when you turn on the car and the master warning comes up with the triangle with the exclaimation point on the third picture of the car?


Sorry, other expert winner the chat about your problem. This light shows operational status of traction control system. If it is constantly lit when engine is running, this means that traction control system is off. If the light flashes during driving, it means the loss of traction at the wheels, and traction control system is operating- decreasing engine torque to stop exessive wheelspin.
Hope this help.

traction control helps you keep better traction on wet roads and helps you maintain control of the car. no you dont have to have certain tires on the car for the traction control to work. it helps you drive better on wet roads and on snow etc.its built into alot of vehichles these days .
