I loose power when traction control light comes on in my 2002 mustange gt

With some makes and models this is normal. The PCM will reduce engine power when the traction control senses wheel slip as a safety precaution until traction is restored

Just bought a 1999 Olds Alero and it has no instruction manual for the clock, as well as wondering what it means when I click the button and a little light shows "Trac Off" really could use some...

That button you're pushing is the traction control button. You're turning traction control on & off. You use on slippery and wet roads. You might check Ebay for an owners manual.

My 1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2.4L,(Quad 4) the TRAC OFF and Service Engine Soon warning lights came on out of the blue after i changed the water pump and camshaft housing gaskets? Any ideas on why I think...

You will have to retrieve the engine faulty code with a scanner to see.
Explaining in some case when the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) sense a problem for some code it will deactivate the TRACTION system for security.
I believe there is a faulty code after the code is solved then erase all codes and try again. The TRACTION light should be back on.

Hope it helps.

The light on the dash reads "trac off". What does this mean?

Your Traction Control is off. Next to the button for your Hazard Lights (above the radio) there is a button that reads ETC or something along those lines. Press it all the way and the light should go away. If not, there is something wrong with your Traction Control System.

What is the use of the trac off button?

trac has to do with traction control which is useful in wet conditions such as rain or snow. if you have the owners manual, read it. it may tell you to run normally with it off. i would imagine it wouldnt matter in this case. to be able to run it with trac off, the advantages would be faster response on take off. what the traction control does in when the tires begin to break free it slows the wheel to gain traction once again so you dont loose control. cheers

My traction control button stays on

There is a fault in the system and it should be brought to a qualified technician for diagnostics. It could be anything from a simple fuse to a more serious defect of the traction control system. The only way to find out is to connect it to the appropriate code reader.
