Take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault code(s) stored in the car's computer. The service engine light comes on when the computer has detected a fault in one of the car's systems. Most parts stores will perform the scan at no charge. Getting the codes will help identify what the problem/potential problem might be. Hope this helped and best wishes.

2001 Alero was running fine stopped at a light and went to accelerate car started shaking bad, would not accelerate more than 2 mph it seemed. Then Trac Off light came on followed by flasing service engine...

Start the car and have some stand behind the vehicle while it is running in park and rev the engine to see if exhaust gases are coming out, if not sounds like the cat converter is clogged.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. What does it mean when the anti brake light, service engine soon, and traction off light comes on at the same time?

I am assuming its not the service engine soon light it is probably the service vehicle soon light, There are 2 lights service vehicle soon upper left side, and service engine soon upper right side.

When all these come on at the same time it is the wheel bearing sensor. Usually the wheel bearing needs to be replaced which houses the sensor. A sure way to check is to press your sls button by your shifter and see if the light goes out, If it does not, u will need to have a wheel bearing put in.

Warning lights

Feel safe about your trip as this a only warning lights that some issues are at hand concerning your car, it does not mean you can not travel 1000miles.

Just take your car for a scan and it will all be corrected.

Service engine soon light 2004 Alero

if it truly set code for "loose fuel cap" or po455 large leak, then tightening the cap and driving a couple days should reset on its own. if not then get it checked for free at autozone and report back with code # and can help from there. they'll ck for free but are not allowed to reset.
