SOURCE: ETS OFF light always on
Theres a rocker switch labeled "trac control" on the left of the steering column switch it one way to turn traction control on and the other way to turn it off, either way it wont harm anything. GM designed a glorious "Traction Control System", the purpose of which is unknown. What is known however, is that this system has broken on all Achievas known to be in existance. As you will notice if you follow the advice above, activating the system causes any number of problems, many of which are dangerous. Naturally, rather than take any action to fix the problem, GM has tacitly advised dealers to merely turn the switch to off. (The fact that there even is a switch suggests that the system never worked, and indeed was never intended to.) Dealers typically then advice foolish consumers that the light "is meant to be off", which means they think Achieva drivers are among the dumbest people in America.

It stands for Enhanced Traction System.
On your gearshift is a button that when depressed will either turn on, or turn off the traction system. To make it go away, just press the button.
Hope this helps

I don't remember the exact code, but try re-tightening the gas cap. Give it at least a full turn (when it starts clicking). Wife had a code that was worded similar on her '01 Monte Carlo. After doing that reset the code and see if it shows up again.
Hope this helps.
