Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier
The ABS and traction off lights usually indicate a bad wheel speed sensor. I can't remember if the service light came on the three times mine went. The most common one to fail is the left front.
Try this cheap fix first.
Remove the left front wheel speed sensor, clean and reinstall it. They are magnetic and some times road debris will block the sensor. If that was the problem the ABS and traction lights will go off when you start the car.
Your second option is to have the shop scan the vehicle trouble codes, usually this costs an hours labor.
Hope this helps
