The Low Traction Light comes on when the Enhanced Traction System (ETS) detects one(or more) of the wheels are "slipping" and do not match the speed of the other wheels. The speed of the wheels are detected through the Wheel Speed Sensor(WSP), respectively. This is a normal occurrence if for example you hit a patch of ice or some loose gravel and one of your wheels begins to spin faster than the other wheels.

However if you are describing a condition where you are at a stop or parked at the time the light comes on it would likely indicate that there is a fault in the ETS or in a different case The "Brain Box". If this is the case it is best to take the vehicle to a Legal Certified repair Facility or dealership as there are sometimes Service bulletins and specific testing processes that must be done in order to properly verify what the issue is.

I hope this can help you out.

My 1998 BMW traction control warning light is coming on regularly


Yes definitely check the tread on your tires, they are slipping around corners that's why the traction control comes on. It could like you said be low tire pressure but they would have to be pretty low and you would notice if they were that low. The traction control is sensitive in the bmw's that's what makes them great.

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.

Have the ABS system scanned for codes. The ABS and Traction control use the same computer. You likely have a bad wheel speed sensor.
