It is possible that you pushed the ETS button. The 'trac off' light comes on in my Grand Am when this is pushed.

2001 grand am died while driving wont start back trac off light came on along with engine light

The trac light probably came on because the engine light came on.
You would need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes, and find out if you are missing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to proceed with testing.

2001 grand am se jerking when changin gears trac off light on

Final drive speed sensor causing Trac light and rough shifting. Metal dust on the sensor. Have the transmission filter and fluid serviced. This should have been done at 60,000 miles. You may get an ABS light too. Service the sensor. Perform an OBDII scan for stored faults.

2000 grand am se abs light an trac off light and service engine soon light stays on, but i got the car scan and no codes come up

If you had the car scanned with a generic OBDII code reader (Which is what they use at all the parts stores) this is probably why it is not showing any codes. You have "Vehicle Specific" codes. This means that the problem with your Check Engine light is not a problem that will generate a "generic" OBD code. A generic OBD code reader will not read codes from your Antilock Brake System or your Traction Control System at all... You need to have it scanned professionally by someone who has the proper equipment and software to access the Controller Area Network (CAN) in your vehicle.

The trac off came on what is this

There are wheel speed sensors that are located in each hub. These sensors are usually responsible for the ABS/trac off/low trac lights coming on. There are couple of things that could cause one or all of these sensors to activate the "Trac Off" light. Such as a bad sensor or an issue with the hub bearings.

However the most common cause of this is a problem with the wiring. Since the sensors are subject to the elements they tend to fail due to corrosion.
In fact this is an on going issue with 2000 - 2005 Grand Am's and Grand Prix's.
If you have mechanical ability you should inspect the connections and sensor. Clean the and use some Die-electric spray on the connections. Then disconnect the battery for at least 15 minutes to reset everything and wait to see if it returns. If it does you might want to go to a mechanic because this can also effect the ABS system.
Hope this helps.

Abs light, trac light, service engine soon light 2001 Pontiac Grand Am

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.
