When the car jerks what's the cause?

Do you have a 4 wheel drive, is it in 4 wheel drive and are you driving on dry roads? Very very bad for the 4 wheel drive transfer case.

If not, it could be the CV joints, the engine, the transmission, very bad Gasoline.
If it's during braking then it's the Anti-lock brake system engaging when it's not supposed to.

What does traction off means

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.

Honda Accord Rear Brake Caliber Is Locked Up, Causes & Expense?

Sounds like the ABS system is messed up. Yes, it's expensive, since it's a Honda. But brakes are not something to mess with.

My H2 Hummer wheels locked all of a sudden. I had to press the gas while someone pulled me and then it started going again. Is it safe to drive it? Please help me!

It would be best not to drive it yet. You have to determine first what caused the locking. In certain situations it may be safe but can be very much a hassle if this happens again. Worst case is that it may lock up on one of the wheel causing you to loose control of the car which can injure you or other motorists.

You will need to have the car raised or jacked up and inspect each of the wheels. Check if all wheels are locked or only certain wheels. Check if the brake is the one causing it to lock. It may be a locked caliper causing the break to hold on to the disc. This may be caused by dirt or debris in the braking system. Other than that it could be caused by metal contact preventing your wheels to move.

Most differential failures are either caused by low fluid level (burnout),
"Shock loading", which can be caused by accelerating hard on an icy surface, sand, etc. then "hooking up" on a better surface while under power, or,just getting on it really hard in a forward gear after backing up without rolling a bit in drive to close the lash between the gears.
Material failure: In which case, a flaw in a casting allows normal stress to cause a failure without the operator doing anything unusual.
Your question about over-loading would not be valid in your case unless the overloading was coupled with one of the above. Generally, overloading will just cause the gears to overheat because the load will cause the lube to squeeze out from between the gear teeth and cause excessive friction generated heat. (why heavier lube is recommended for towing).
One recommendation though...once one diff bearing fails, replace them all. (rebuild the unit) Debris from one bearing is carried to all bearings and causes microscopic wear which will result in another failure.
Rebuilding is part technology and part "art-form" requiring experience and the proper tools. It is expensive. It may be better to find a replacement (wheel to wheel) in a scrapyard though if it's a posi, that may be difficult.

All wheel drive electric swithch will not go 4high or 4 low but do have all wheel drive what does the service 4 wheel drive light mean?

Means a sensor has found an issue with the 4 wheel drive system. I suggest you have fluids checked in the transfer case and gearboxes accordingly. If that isnt it rent a code reader at an automotive store to retrieve the code to lock down exactly whats causing the fault.

While in four wheel drive and turning is it normal for the front wheels to grab?

While im not versed in the newer systems most 4 wheel drives will grab while turning on pavement. on older trucks it is caused but both front wheels moving at the same speed. When you turn a corner the outside wheel of your truck has to turn faster than the inside.most manufacturers recomend not engageing 4 wheel drive on dry pavement .
