One way to disable the abs brakes is to go under the hood and remove the abs relay, the box is located under the hood on the drivers side next to the battery just pull it out and your brakes will be like regular brakes the only problem is that your brake light and traction light will stay on but if you can put up with them then that will fix your problem. hope this helps.

Does a trottle posistion senser cause a 02 chevy cavailer to make the trac off light come on?


No ,it would make the check engine light come on ! You have a problem with the traction control which is part of the ABS - antilock brakes ! You need to take it to qualified ASE repair facility to have it check out !

My 2005 chevy cavalier has a service engine, abs, and trac off light on. sometimes the low trac light comes on when in the reverse position, then switches to the 3 lights when put in the drive position....


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

There's a little light that says "low trac" that goes on when i turn on my 1998 chevy cavalier.... what does it mean??


means the traction control module is bad. That light is suppose to come on when you lose traction to let you know the traction control is kicking in.

2004 Cavalier-ABS and Trac light warnings


no you need to take it and have the codes pulled on it, the abs system will disable the traction control system.Without knowing what the codes are for the abs system it would not be possible to say what the problem is.

What does the low traffic light mean in a 1998 chevy cavalier?


If your ABS light is on as well, have a shop scan it (it requires a special scanner). If it's just your Trac light without ABS, it is most likely a sensor under the hood at fault. If you are getting a check engine light as well, get the codes read!
This happened to me without an ABS light and it was the upstream O2 sensor. The reason it throws the Trac light is because if any components that the traction control uses (ignition, fuel) are affected by a bad sensor, the PCM shuts down traction.
In fact, when I replaced the O2 sensor, a handful of other little issues resolved as well.
If you do have an ABS light on, it could very well be a wheel speed sensor.

Enhanced Traction System Warning Light (TRAC OFF)


Sometimes it's a complaint with the ABS braking system. If it comes on and you have no other problems and stays on for while, check your brakes. I have had this issue before and had my brakes replaced. They were worn but for some reason were not squeaking.
