Question about 1998 Toyota Avalon
HI. The Trac light(traction control module fault) and the engine light are very serious indicators that are signaling that there is an issue that concerns the state of the monitoring sensors mounted on your block and power train assembly, as well. Apparently, these issues are not mechanical but electrical in nature, due to the fact that, this vehicle is able to be driven with no obvious limitations what so ever. With that said; I would recommend to have a diagnostic scan ran on the PCM. This will provide a more in-depth inquiry into what is actually failing within the monitoring sensor assembly on this vehicle. The scan will isolate the faults and direct you to the actual part that will need to be replaced. This can only be done with the assistance of a diagnostic scan device. This can be administered at your local dealership, or at your local auto zone parts store, as well. Once you have had the codes extracted, post them here for further analysis.
Additionally; The repair shouldn't be very expensive, due to the fact that, this vehicle is functional and driving with no symptoms. You stated that "the car drive good". This is a good signal and confirms that the issues are not that severe. Have the scan ran, asap.
