Traction control enables when one wheel spins (low trac indicator lights) due to water/ice, etc. Traction control disables the differential so that both drive wheels will turn, thus increasing traction. Once conditions improve, traction control will disable (trac off) and reenable the differential.

2002 Buick regal supercharge. Lights on dash service vehicle soon, ABS, and low Trac light come on every few days. What could it mean?


Your car battery may be on the way out, this can cause the ABS light to come on. ( this happened to my Mercedes 300c)

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.

What means -low track


That means your system detected lowered traction, like a wheel spin or slip..and the system is intervening to assist you...It has the ability to apply brakes and lower throttle...

What does low trac sign mean?


if stopped at an intersection and then pull out a bit too fast & the tires start spinning, the "Low Trac" light will come on briefly, but will go back off once traction is gained again. This is totally normal. but if this stays on constantly even in dry road conditions, you need to get it looked at because it's not normal. (basically the light itself means your tires have little to no traction with the road and are spinning or slipping/sliding.)

You never specified whether it's on all the time, or you were just curious as to what the light meant. If it does stay on constantly, comment and I will help you work through the solutions!

I hope this helps!

The trac off light goes on and the engine light is blinking


This is common, when ever the computer sees a fault it will turn the light on and shut down the trac, the trac cant operate correctly when engine is not running good, you will need to have the computer scanned for codes, whenever the engine light comes on the computer stores a code with the problem, a flashing light means it needs attention asap, this mean its misfiring like a bad plug or sparkplug wire, the flashing is because you can cause damage to converter in the exhaust system, many autopart stores will scan the codes for free, for example they may pull a code that says po301 cylinder 1 misfire, this would mean cylinder 1 is misfiring, this take about 5 min, to get the codes, they use a small hand held scanner that plug in inside the car under the dash to the diagnostic connector which comunicates with the computer, hope this is helpful.

The TRAC light stays on in the dash, I just got the car and I am not sure if that means there is a problem with the trac controll, or it is just letting you know its on, because another light comes on that...


before going to the shop take to auto zone or most any auto parts store they have the ability to hook up read the code and tell you what the problem is

THE VSC TRAC OFF & CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS CAME ON ....my friends say its no big deal and its common with all toyota cars buta am just not confortable driving in it anymur. please help.....


1. VSC means Vehicle Stability Control.

2. TRAC Off means Traction Controln is off

3. Check simply indicates that there is an issue being communicated from the onboard computer.

Take the car for a scan dear.

2002 grand am trac light came on, on the dash board


Do you have the trac button pushed on the dash? that would turn it on. if that does not turn it off you probably should get it checked out.
