What is an ETS light keeps flashing what does this mean


This a technical bulletin for your car
Hope this helps, if it does please leave feedback
Good Luck



File In Section: 5 - Brakes
Bulletin No.: 63-50-09
Date: March, 1996
INFORMATION
Subject:
"ETS OFF" Indicator Lamp On with No DTC's Set Models:
1996 Buick Skylark
1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
1996 Oldsmobile Achieva
1996 Pontiac Grand Am, Sunfire On vehicles equipped with Enhanced Traction System (ETS), the "ETS OFF" indicator lamp may come on and ETS and Cruise Control might become disabled. There may be no ABS or PCM Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) stored and there may be no "Check Engine" lamp on. This condition has caused a high rate of unnecessary IPC replacements.
The PCM sets a Type "C" or "D" FAILURE RECORD which sends a message to the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) to turn the "ETS OFF" indicator on and to disable ETS. The PCM can then disable Cruise Control, but may not turn on a corresponding "Check Engine" lamp. These Type "C" or "D" Failure Records are not stored in the normal Current or History menus.
41807575
The technician is instructed to check normal operation of the "ETS OFF" switch and the ETS system. The technician is then instructed to check for Failure Records and directed to Section 6E3-A of the Service Manual, see chart. When the PCM Failure Record is corrected, normal operation of the ETS system and Cruise Control should return.

THIS ETS LIGHT IS ON IN MY 97 GRAND AM CAN I AN IDEA OF WHAT THIS MEANS.


The Electronic Traction System (ETS) works by detecting wheelspin, then cutting-off the fuel injection to drop the engine speed until traction is restored.

What is the ets button for


ETS stands for Enhanced Traction System.
This is GM's version of Traction Control - it improves traction (to reduce likely hood of skidding) on slippery or loose surfaces.

Check engine light, ETS light and ABS Lights all on


You would need to get the codes read from the computer as these may all be related. A check engine light can cause an ETS, which inturn can cause an ABS, or vice-versa.

ETS sensor out


It stands for Enhanced Traction System.
On your gearshift is a button that when depressed will either turn on, or turn off the traction system. To make it go away, just press the button.
Hope this helps
