The only way to know for sure isto get it diagnosed. Even if we guessed it would still need to be diagnosed with a data scanner to see what the sensors are doing.

    Mine is doing the same thing I had a friend check it out and I did not get the fault code but my right front wheel sensor has an open circuit fault ? so does that mean the sensor behind the RF rotor needs to be changed I checked the plugs they are all good and no corrosion

I don't understand the whole traction light thing. my car always says trac off-except when it says low trac and slides like it's on ice.


TAKE CAR TO A GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP HAVE THE ABS BRAKES AND TRACTION CONTROL CODE SCAN.YOUR ABS BRAKE SYSTEM WILL COME ON ADJUSTING BRAKE PRESSURE TO AVOID A SKID.THAT WHY LOW TRAC LIGHT COMES ON. MOST OF THE TIME WHEN YOU SEE LOW TRAC LIGHT DRIVING ON DRY ROADS PROBLEM IS IN THE ABS BRAKE UNIT OR BAD WHEEL SPEED SENSOR.

WHEN BOTH ANTI LOCK AND TRAC LIGHT ON YOU HAVE PROBLEM IN ABS BRAKE AND TRAC SYSTEM.THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO FIX THEY HAVE DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT TO WORK ON IT.THE ONLY THING YOU CAN CHECK MAKE SURE ALTERNATOR OUT PUT VOLTAGE WITH ENGINE RUNNING IS 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS.BECAUSE IF ALTERNATOR OUT PUT LOW BOTH LIGHTS WILL COME ON ALSO CHECK THE ABS RELAY.

When I turn the steering wheel the low trac light


The steering wheel position, wheel speed sensors, and ABS systems are all used to provide traction control. You likely have a failure of one or more systems. Scan the ABS system and it will provide codes to help the diagnosis. Wheel speed sensors fail often, and it is likely one or more of these is contributing to the problem.

I own a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero and the ''Trac Off'' dash light came on. I don't have a owners manual so I don't know waht it means, can you help?


There is a button (on the shifter console in my alero) that turns oof and on the "trac". I'm not sure of it's purpose but if I push that button, the "Trac Off" light comes on.

01 olds alero troubles keep the car running during driving


Is the trac off? If so that could be the problem does the car shake when stopped at light? or struggle to go for green light? check all tires are they all same size? if tires are low or at different pressure it will put the hole car off balance and the trac will go off and stay of witch will give you false transmission problems am I close let me know and I can see what else I can tell you

Why does the LOW TRAC and ANTI-LOCK warnings light up a majority of the time when I am driving? What is LOW TRAC?


low trac light and abs light run hand in hand. first thing id check is the code stored in abs module. youll almost guaranteed to find a bad abs wheel sensor--which to replace is a wheel hub assembly ....hope that helped you out

1999 Alero stalling and trac off light coming on


does the rpm motor kick down? you may need to check your vacuum hoses, and also you may want to check your exaust, sounds wierd but that can cause the car to stall at times.as for the traction light, your hitting the brakes to hard. try slowing down a little slower while stopping, and keep distance for saftey.. if you can take it a little slower at lights and turns, without braking hard and it stops stalling.
