Sounds like an electrical problem. Find the fuse for the trac system and get rid of it. Just disabling that system is a good way to solve the problem.

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 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!

Check engine light on only can get speed up to 20 mph then powers down in city driving 50 out on open road


Hi
very common fault, its the EGR valve cost new about £130 although you can clean the part and refit it. sometimes that works.

The EGR Is exhaust gas recycler valve, it forces unburnt fumes back into the engine to reburn when they fail, the engine light comes on and while the light is on you will be lucky to get 20mph in low gears and like you say 50 on the open road.

You can clean it with Carb cleaner, they are very easy to remove and refit so worth a try before buying another.

Dan

What does trac off light refer to? service engine and trac off light comes on.


Trac is the control that doesnt let your tires spin when they are not making contact with the road. Just by having your emergency brake on will light up the trac light. It also come on with your abs. If you driving on a slick road and you jam on your brakes and the tires slide a little mine will say low track on my car.
