Traction control is disabled due to system fault.

Why is my trac off light on


It is the anti lock brake system. First, look at the ABS. It will come on for a bad wheel sensor or broken wire. This will also throw the trac light on. ABS is on because the computer senses the one tire is trying to stop or lock up. this releases the brake pressure. On the traction light(which should also throw the ABS light), one tire is spinning faster that another. This can happen on gravel, sand or snow/ice. When you turn the key on, do you have an ABS light on, then goes off? Same with a trac light. If you do, then you have a bad wheel sensor. Scan it and replace it.

Svs, abs. no trac, and perf shift lights


Trac control and ABS lights come on usually when one of your ABS wheel sensors is either bad and needs replacing or corroded and just may need cleaning. This happened to me. It was my front left abs sensor. they replaced it and al the lights went out and all good now. I also bought an OBDII that plugs into your car and the computer tells the OBDII whats wrong and what sensor it is. You also get the option to erase the codes and put out some or all the lights on your dash. Some times a glitch will light a light on the dash and resetting or erasing it with the OBDII corrects the problem. Hope this helps. God Bless :O)

My ABS and TRAC off light keeps coming on what is happening


You need to have the rear axel differential oil serviced. Metal dust has collected on the speed sensor resulting in loss of speed sensor signal. Damage to Trac Lock friction plates can occur which is very expensive. The diff. lube should have been serviced at 80,000 miles. Check the maintenance schedule in your owners manual for info on miles and intervals

The trac low light comes on when i am driving on dry roads and then it wont go past 20 mph, also the battery light will comes on sometimes when it happens.


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.

My check engine trac off light came on


This happened to me as well, just a few weeks after buying our 1999 ES300. Took it into Lexus for regular maintenance and to check this out. Apparently, if you don't replace the gas cap correctly and tight enough this can cause the 'trac off' light to come one. It will go off a little while after the cap has been replaced correctly. This also happened with my 2006 Murano, 'check engine soon' message.

Transmission shifts hard when the trac off light comes on


youll need to scan for transmission codes. the trac off light is a default of the trans going into a default safety mode. Bad speed sensors and simple little bolt on items like that can cause the condition but only way to really nail it is with a computer.

TRAC LIGHT ISSUE


The trac light does NOT come on for the smog test. It has noting to do with the smog test. The trac light DOES come on when the Check Engine light comes on, when a failure is detected. From what I remember, the trac light WILL come on if the smog is a "dyno-driven" smog test, but it has nothing to do with the test, the trac simply comes on because only one wheel is spinning, just like it will when you are spinning on ice.. Hope this helps.
