I took my 2005 LS to the dealer for 40k maintenance stuff, oil and fluid changes, tire rotation, etc. The "check" Advance Trac light was an issue with me too. I would have figured that the Advance Trac system simply needed "checking" along with regular maintence because it was "time". However, this was a hold-over problem from the last maintenance I had had - the light had been coming on even after taking it to the dealer previously. I don't think the technician caught it the first time. This next time, I insisted that they look at it. It seems to have been a re-calibration was needed. Now it is fine again...

2001 Lincoln LS V8 Advance Trac sensors replaced, but amber light on dashboard will not quit flashing. Shop cleared the codes when they replaced the sensor. The


The repair shop did not make the repair necessary

There are no advance trac sensors

Advance Trac is an add on option when new,
to the ABS Braking system

Even if the mil lamp is cleared, there will be codes
there when you access with a professional scanner,
since you have the amber lamp on

The only sensors are wheel speed sensors

I have a 2005 automatic ponatic gram when check engine flashes and my trac light is onit wont accelerate even when i push the petal down then it will just catch and go alittle faster also when i come


I am assuming you have a Pontiac Grand Am.
You would need to have someone scan the computer for trouble codes to proceed. The codes will point you in the direction of the problem but not tell you what to replace or repair.

Engine shutdown while driving, check engine light on plus check advance trac warning and light on. Will not crank. Power at starter, will crank when jumped to solonoid. Starter relay in fuse block...


Try turning the advance-trac off. If you have a systems menu (Should be right side of Speedo) you have options for Park assist, bells ,chimes and so on. One selection is the Traction. The traction assist works by throttling down the engine when it detects a difference in rotation from 1 wheel to the next.

You need a scan for the codes but your hunk of metal is not able to go to Autozone or Oreillys until you start it.

You may also want to try to enter the keyless entry code in the door keypad in case the antitheft is upset. Your alarm may block the ignition.

Defeating the traction control and alarm system may get you going.

Engine won't start on Jaguar XJ8 Vandenplas TRAC NOT AVAILABLE


hey blackdiam522,
First did you have a check engine light, and do you know what the code was if you did?

Ok, the traction control not available isnt goin to affect the car from starting.During my year of a jaguar tech the most common for a crank, no start is a flooded engine. Now the two most causes for a flooded engine on these jags are 1. the weather is just super cold and all the own does is keep cranking the car to try to get to start. 2. A lot of short trip, a lot of city driving, 15 mins or less.

When you get something like this, a no start crank, you have to pump the gas pedal really fast, like your starting an oil muscle car. this forces more air into the engine.

when this no start happend u could get all these codes, what i maybe would recommend is a tune up, and some highway driving every once and a while to kept this from happening again, hopefully this helps, thanks.

Trac off light


chances are its a bad sensor for the traction control...that would make it bog down because the car think the tires have started to spin n lowers its rpm level to bring the car back in control...even though the cars tires arent spinning...check and replace.
