What do you mean it , shows electrical?

The light on just means you are not passing emissions. not a big deal unless it's flashing.
Go to Autozone, they will scan test for codes for free.

The traction control uses the engine, so when the check engine light is on the traction control is disabled.
Depending on the code, it could be something in the wiring instead of the sensor.

sounds like your alternator isnt functioning correctly.
you can have this tested at a local garage, normally for free. when the engine is running, it should show around 14 amps on a multimeter. also check the battery is serviced. check the fluid levels and a full charge

I DON'T HAVE AN OWNER'S MANUAL. INDICATOR LIGHTS ARE ON, AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE FOR.


Are you talking abut the Service Engine Soon light? (Service Engine). If so, take it to an auto parts store and ask if they can run a diagnostics test on it. This will bring up a list of codes which indicate any parts that may be faulty and/or need replaced. Also, check all your fuses, relays, and battery terminal connections <--make sure they're clean too. If not codes come up, and the service engine light is on, ask them to simply clear the codes (which means they reset your cars computer). As I have recently learned (been told) when a battery has been disconnected a certain number of times, this alone can cause the Service Engine Soon light to come on. If any codes come up, find out what they are for, and starting with the least expensive parts (as one part can cause others to show up on the codes list sometimes), replace each as needed until the part if fixed. NOTE: Scheduled, routine tune-ups can help avoid such incidents. I sincerely hope this information is helpful to you.
