Have the vehicle control modules checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ! This will point you in a diagnostic direction . Probably a sensor or a solenoid inside the transmission . Find out what codes are stored in the PCM/TCM

Traction control on chevy hhr 2006

The traction control and transmission shifting would involve the body computer more so than the engine computer.
Have you had the body computer scanned for trouble codes ?

What do I need to replace when my traction control light comes on? 2005 cobalt

When the light is on the code will need to be read to find out what is causing it. It is usually a sensor related problem. Have it scanned to determine what needs to be repaired. I hope this helps,

Light comes on service tracttion, then says traction off.

traction control should stay on and it should be a button on the dash somewhere (not sure where, my cobalt doesnt have one) but if it got shut off at some point its probibly just telling you its off becuase other than racing theres no reason to shut Traction Control off.

2003 cobalt traction control light on

traction control is controlled by a button on the dash, the only time the TC light comes on is when its shut off, indicating that you do not have traction control. try locating the button and pushing it and see if that fixes the problem, if not there is something wrong in the tc circuit (such as a wheel speed sensor) and would need further diagnosis.

Car dangerous with no power steering

This is a well known problem with these Cobalts. Ours (we had 2) both had to have the steering column replaced to fix this.
It's caused because the power steering assist (electric motor) on the column stops working. It usually will reset after you shut the car down for a few minutes and restart it.
Hopefully it's under warranty, else it'll cost a grand or more to replace.
