Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
On certain issues that cause the 'check engine' light to come on, the 'computer' shuts off the 'Electronic Traction System' (ETS) to save power incase it is needed due to the issue. The main thing to focus on in this situation is why is the 'check engine' light on. You can go to your local auto parts store and ask them to check what code(s) is being given. Once the issue that is making the 'check engine' light is fixed then the 'ETS Off' light should also turn off.

Get the codes checked.This will tell you what cylinder is causing the problem.If the wires and plugs didn`t help then you probably have a bad coil.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I have a 96 cavalier and if i forget to turn the gas cap until it clicks air gets in the tank and the ck. engine light comes on. So, don't forget that could be part of the problem

SOURCE: ETS light comes on and off
Just to add to it. Volvo Darin is right, but the extended warranty period was for 10 years or 200,000 miles. It depends on your warranty start date. Being a 1999 it could or could not be covered.
Don't wait any longer, because there is NO help or extension of this warranty after 10 years.
Monday, Monday, Monday...
