Question about 1999 Chevrolet Venture
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.
