If your ABS light is on as well, have a shop scan it (it requires a special scanner). If it's just your Trac light without ABS, it is most likely a sensor under the hood at fault. If you are getting a check engine light as well, get the codes read!
This happened to me without an ABS light and it was the upstream O2 sensor. The reason it throws the Trac light is because if any components that the traction control uses (ignition, fuel) are affected by a bad sensor, the PCM shuts down traction.
In fact, when I replaced the O2 sensor, a handful of other little issues resolved as well.
If you do have an ABS light on, it could very well be a wheel speed sensor.

I have changed the fuel pump twice on a 1998 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 Liter. I have also changed the fuel filter and the relay switch. The fuel pump wont kick on when I turn the key on.


The original Chevy pump motor has a good life. Running the vehicle out of fuel, which will actually run the pump in a dry state can shorten the expected life span considerably. Gasoline is a petroleum product and actually lubricates the inside of the fuel pump. The more you run the vehicle low on fuel or out of fuel, the more damage will occur and the quicker the pump will fail. Try replacing the pump and follow the above procedures for a good performance of the pumps. Cavalier fuel pumps available here

There's a little light that says "low trac" that goes on when i turn on my 1998 chevy cavalier.... what does it mean??


means the traction control module is bad. That light is suppose to come on when you lose traction to let you know the traction control is kicking in.
