    I have the same problem. It occured in 2000 and after a few days , the lights went off and all was fin till the other day. Same problem and removed the battery power for about an hour and reconnected. Light was off but only for a day. Now it is back on and will not go off.

    My car is doing the same thing... The lights came on the dash the other day and then went off the next. Then today they came back on and my exhaust is loud and the car idles funny. Do you still think it is the oxygen sensors?

This has been happening to my car as well. It typically happens when your oxygen sensors start to wear out. Mine does it once in a while and I have the local auto store reset it. Go to your nearest auto store and have them tell you what code it is and ask them to reset the OBD so the light goes out. If the light comes on right away and the code has to do with your oxygen sensors, have them replaced. There are three, two are easy to replace, one takes some effort as it is in a tough to get to spot. The dealer will charge you a fortune to replace them so do it yourself or through a local mechanic. It is a very simple task other then the access.

If you disconnect the battery to reset the engine light, make sure you have the code to reset the anti theft on the radio, otherwise your radio will not work

I have a 2007 Pontiac G6 GT, and my engine light is on, i put i on the computer at autozone and it said the trottle sensor, so i put that on the hold gas petal and the car is still idling and missing, sound like a fuel problem but the traction light is coming on and the engine power reducing. if it was just a sensor would it still be missing?

Had the oil changed in 2002 New Beetle. The check engine light, ASR (Anti-Slip Regulation), and EPC (Electronic Power Control) dash warning lights are all on. Solid lights, not blinking.


Not without clearing codes. And if the check engine light is on due to an actual problem, it can turn the other warning light on too so you know those systems are disabled. Usually a problem with ABS or traction control will not turn on the check engine light.
Your owners manual would talk more about what the lights mean.
I would have the engine computer scanned for trouble codes first.

Why does the traction control light turn on and stay on when I start the engine?


traction control and abs units both use the same wheel sensors
check for problem wires
run the fault codes to check for other areas and faults.

Why does my traction off light come on?


You either have a problem with your engine control system, the traction control system, or you are not in the correct gear. See the explaination below. This is from the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner's Manual.

TRAC-OFF LIGHT

... If you turn the system off by moving the shift lever

to FIRST (1) or SECOND (2), the warning light will

come on and stay on. To turn the system back on,

move the shift lever back to a position other than

FIRST (1) or SECOND (2). The warning light

should go off. (See "Enhanced Traction System"

in the Index for more information.)

 The warning light will come on when you set your

parking brake with the engine running, and it will

stay on if your parking brake doesn't release fully.

If the transaxle shift lever is in any position other

than FIRST (1) or SECOND (2) and the warning

light stays on after your parking brake is fully

released, it means there's a problem with the system.

 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 light comes

on and stays on for an extended period of time when the

transaxle shift lever is in any position other than FIRST
(1) or SECOND (2) your vehicle needs service.

I have a Lexus is200 auto year 99 the problem that I'm having is when I'm driving suddenly the engine sign lights up along with the traction control sign flashing and it stay's on and at the same time the...


traction control indicates that the sensor in the wheel hub may not be picking up a good signal.
The engine light is a separate issue, where the engine may have a sensor that is out of specifications, as far as the signals it is sending. These signals are out of range for the specs. recorded in the computer.

The engine will not run as efficiently when the service engine soon light is on.

Have codes scanned and go from there as far as diagnosing the problem(s).

Check Engine light and traction control light stay


there is nothing to do here but have the dealer run a scanner test to see what trouble codes were set with the lights coming on, until then there is no way to tell what the problem might be as there are over 200 possibilities.

How to Turn off Service Traction Control and ESC messages


I had this problem with my 2007 HHR. I drove away with the service engine and the service traction light on. The car was stuttering through the gears. I took it back and they checked it. They disconnect some wires while they change the oil and one was loose. The service engine turned off but the service traction stayed on. We disconnected the battery for 3 minutes and it fixed the problem. Some of those other guys spent up to 300 dollars to fix the problem. Hope it works out for you.
