The torque converter clutch circuit may be at fault. The best way to determine the problem is to have a scanner/computer to read check engine codes.

SOURCE: How to Turn off Service Traction Control and ESC messages

I had this problem with my 2007 HHR. I drove away with the service engine and the service traction light on. The car was stuttering through the gears. I took it back and they checked it. They disconnect some wires while they change the oil and one was loose. The service engine turned off but the service traction stayed on. We disconnected the battery for 3 minutes and it fixed the problem. Some of those other guys spent up to 300 dollars to fix the problem. Hope it works out for you.

My engine light came on it said engine power reduced check esc transmission off


What is the year make and model of the vehicle? If the "check engine" light is on that means the vehicle is trying to tell you that there is a problem and the codes need to be scanned. If you can safely drive it to an auto zone or advanced auto they will scan the codes for you for free. You should get a fault code(s) that starts with a P then four numbers, ex. p0601. These codes will basically tell you what could be wrong in the car. I personally recommend that once they scan the codes, have them clear the codes then scan it again to see which codes, if any, come back. The more info from you, on something like this, the better.
Regards,
Tim

What does "Reduced Power, Traction Fault" mean?


GM's power strategy will reduce power if it doesn't see proper charging. It does this to conserve battery power by shutting off non-essential electrical accessories. It can also mean that the traction control system is reducing engine power to avoid a skid. The traction control system gets input data from the wheel speed sensors to figure out if you're entering a skid or the wheels are locking up. One way to get you out of the skid is to reduce engine power or pump your ABS brakes. In your case you should get the trouble codes read. An ABS or traction code code could be a C, U or B code which can't be seen by a cheap scan tool or the tools they use at auto parts stores. GM had major problems with the ABS wheel speed sensors built into the wheel bearing hubs in these vehicles. The fix involved replacing the hub. So get the codes read by a pro scanner to find out which wheel sensor is setting the code. Then do the fix. Also, the P0128 is usually caused by a bad thermostat. Fix that first, because if the engine doesn't get up to operating temperature, the computer can limit some features.

My car is saying service ESC


That light means that the computer control module has detected a fault in the Electronic stability control system and it turned on the light to alert you. Right now the system is turned off for your safety. You now need the system scanned for the fault code that is set in the control modules memory.

My 2002 Volkswagen jetta lights on for traction control and ERP light. Car has no power.


Hi there?
The traction system is linked to the engine managment, if there a fault in the traction system it can reduce the engine power output. You need to scan the traction control system to see what fault code comes up.
