If the orange light is the light that keeps coming on, then you may have tire issues. Mounting different tires from the Goodyear Eagle F-1 or the Goodyear Supercars can cause the car to think that it is loosing traction (especially if the tires are of different sizes than the original tires).

I keep getting a message service stabilitrak


StabiliTrak Indicator Light: If the warning light does not come on then, have it fixed so it will be ready to warn you if there is a problem. If it stays on, or comes on when you are driving, there may be a problem with your StabiliTrak system and your vehicle may need service. When this warning light is on, the system is off and will not limit wheel spin. Adjust your driving accordingly.

This light will also flash when the StabiliTrak system is active. If the StabiliTrak system warning light comes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the system is turned on, your vehicle needs service.

The traction control part of StabiliTrak can be turned off by pressing and releasing the StabiliTrak button if both systems (traction control and StabiliTrak) were previously on. To disable both traction control and StabiliTrak, press and hold the button for five seconds.

Traction control and StabiliTrak can be turned on by pressing and releasing the StabiliTrak button if not automatically shut off for any other reason.

When the TCS or StabiliTrak system is turned off, the StabiliTrak light and the appropriate TCS off or StabiliTrak off message will be displayed on the DIC to warn the driver. Your vehicle will still have brake-traction control when traction control is off, but will not be able to use the engine speed management system.

If the StabiliTrak and/or Traction Control are not operating properly, I encourage you to take your vehicle in for inspection. A certified technician will be able to offer a more accurate diagnosis.

01 Pontiac grand am trac light off and shifting problems


Hi there:
When the Engine Control Module encounters problems, it will also disable the traction control system. Scanned the ECM to know fault codes stored there, repairing this codes and clearing the codes will turn off the Traction indicator and allows the traction control to work once again.

If the Traction Control light is coming on, the traction control is activating and can cause a jerking problem. Nothing last the life of the vehicle, however the timing chain should not need to be changed at 49,000 miles. If it does, I would have them do it under warranty. See if you can get the codes and send them to me. That way we can get a better ideal of what is going on. Could you please tell me what these codes stand for?

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

What does Trac off light mean?


It means you turned off the cars' Traction Control. The traction control tries to keep your wheels from spinning and keep you on the road. By pressing the TRAC button and turning the traction control off, the computer no long tries to keep the wheels from spinning (a good thing if you want to peel out!)

How do I turn traction control on? Light on dash says "traction off" all the time.


The Enhanced Traction System warning light may come on for the following reasons:
If you turn the system off by shifting to SECOND (2) or FIRST (1), the warning light will come on and stay on. To turn the system back on,shift to THIRD (3) or AUTOMATIC OVERDRIVE

If the traction control system is affected by an engine-related problem, the system will turn off and the warning light will come on.

If the Enhanced Traction System warning lightmcomes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the system is turned on, your vehicle needs service. Adjust your driving accordingly..

I have a 2005 malibu, while driving today a light came on that says t/c. i don't have a manual, could you tell me what that means.


t/c is a traction control . it could be a fauly wheel bearing sensor or a faulty ebcm module.
is your anti lock brakes light on too? if so then its probally a wheel bearing or wheel bearing wiring there are a few things you can do to find out if your wheel bearing sensors are working. if you have a multi meter attach it to the terminals on the wheel bearing itself it should give a reading of 1080 - 1180 ohms normally for front and a little less for the rear.
