The traction off comes on when the abs light is on to show it has been disabled. The traction control uses the abs sytem to help control it.The most common reason that this happens is a bad wheel speed sensor which is all part of a bearing hub assembly. You can also check the wires going to the abs sensors to make sure none of them were damaged. You may need to have the vehicle scanned to find out which sensor or what is disabling the abs.

Trac control and abs lites both on


Sounds like you have a abs problem. The anti-lock brakeing system is part of the trac control. I you loose the wheel speed of one wheel (ie bad speed sensor) both lights will come on.

1999 Buick century anti lock signal and trac off displayed when traveling over 60 miles per hour


You will be best off bringing the car in for service. If the anti-lock signal comes on, it means that your ABS system has a fault and you do not have anti-lock brakes functioning. When the light comes on the car runs on your brakes alone, no anti-lock.

To check the codes and the ABS system, the car should really be serviced.

Good luck!!

My 1999 Monte Carlo trac light comes on during regular driving? Why?


the trac light is designed to come on to let you know that the traction control is working, it works by engaging the anti-lock brake system to keep the front wheels from spinning, it will also come on if you are stopping hard enough to engage the anti- lock brakes, this also could be a sign that your brakes are getting worn and might need replaced

Service engine anti lock and trac light


This is related to a problem in the BODY CONTROL MODULE, the GM dealer can test this module and give you some idea of the repair cost, this is a common problem on all newer GM cars.

Anti-Lock and Trac Off lights are lit on my 1999 Alero, as well. They usually come on after about 5 minutes of driving, but are not always on when I start the car.
