Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Grand Am. This morning the ''Service Engine Soon'' light came on, along with the ''Trac Off'' light. On the way home from work tonight, it would **** when I shifted and when the car shifted from 1st to 2nd gear. When I started to go from a stop sign, it had acceleration issues and didn't want to go. It eventually caught and accelerated. That happened twice on the way home.

Your description sounds like maybe a tranny problem. Make sure the tranny fuid is fresh. Otherwise you need to have the "check engine" notice checked. Some oil change places will check it for free. Or you can buy a OBD II scanner/reader and get the detail of your problem.

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.

Service Vehicle soon trouble light comes on, along with ABS light and Trac Off light, but no diagnostic codes show up on diagnostic reader. How do you determine what is wrong?


If you are using an obd2 reader, make sure it has all the updates. If the check engine light is on, is should show up on reader. There is also a ABS light tester as well. It sounds like an error in the ABS/Trac cirucuits. It could be a bad pump or faulty module.

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.
