Question about 1999 Lexus ES 300

1 Answer

Traction Control Since, only the "Trac Off" light comes on, even after pressing the Traction Control button, does that mean that the Traction Control system is not working? What should I do? Also, the Manfunction Indicator Lamp is on next to the "Trac Off" lamp. Thank you for your help.

What is the "Trac off"


It means you turned off the traction or pushed the ETS button on the gear shift.

The Enhanced Traction System is an all-speed engine based traction control system used by General Motors Corporation in many of their models. In some models, the driver has the option to disable this system by pushing a button marked "ETS". The system uses sensors to monitor wheelspin and reduces engine speed, upshifts or retards ignition timing to improve traction

What does Trac off light mean?


It means you turned off the cars' Traction Control. The traction control tries to keep your wheels from spinning and keep you on the road. By pressing the TRAC button and turning the traction control off, the computer no long tries to keep the wheels from spinning (a good thing if you want to peel out!)

The light on the dash reads "trac off". What does this mean?


Your Traction Control is off. Next to the button for your Hazard Lights (above the radio) there is a button that reads ETC or something along those lines. Press it all the way and the light should go away. If not, there is something wrong with your Traction Control System.

Trac on does not help traction whatsoever totally helpless when snow or ice---not sure it has worked since new when press steering column button to turn trac off---will show trac off on dash----and when...


The traction light only shows when it is turned off. If the traction control wasn't work, the van would show a code aka engine light would come on. Tracation Control only works at speeds below 35 mph.

What does the TCS Off button do?


TCS stands for Traction Control System.
The traction control system works in conjunction with your Antilock Brake System (ABS) and your Engine Control Module (ECM) or Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Unit (ECU) (Note that ECM, ECU, and PCM all mean the computer that controls your engine, depending on make.)

Anyway, the traction control system can apply one or more of the brakes and control engine RPM in the event that a wheel slip has been detected by the traction control system.

Pushing the TCS button on most models will light a lamp in the instrument cluster that usually says "Trac Off" Pressing it a second time will turn this light back off.

When the "Trac Off" light is illuminated, the Traction Control System is disabled and will not work in the event of a wheel slip.

Also note that when the Traction Control System is working and a wheel slip is detected, The Traction Control Module will usually illuminate a light that says "Trac" as it is taking control of your brakes and engine. It can feel really strange when this occurs and some people think that their transmission is slipping or that their engine has a misfire problem.
The chances are that if it occurred on wet, slippery pavement, the Traction Control System may have just saved your life.

If this is happening on dry pavement and normal driving conditions (starting, stopping, or turning), there may be a problem with the system. "False Traction Control" can happen just like a bad wheel sensor causing "False Antilock Mode".

Also check your Owners Manual for more specific information pertaining to your particular vehicle.

How do I turn traction control on? Light on dash says "traction off" all the time.


The Enhanced Traction System warning light may come on for the following reasons:
If you turn the system off by shifting to SECOND (2) or FIRST (1), the warning light will come on and stay on. To turn the system back on,shift to THIRD (3) or AUTOMATIC OVERDRIVE

If the traction control system is affected by an engine-related problem, the system will turn off and the warning light will come on.

If the Enhanced Traction System warning lightmcomes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the system is turned on, your vehicle needs service. Adjust your driving accordingly..

A bytton in my car an when i push it the letters trac on


the button is for a feature call low traction , when the low trac light is on ( on the dashboard ) the traction control system is off. when you press the button again the light should go off ( low trac. on) I leave mine on all the time. it works with the antilock brake system. if the computer detects that the wheels are starting to slip or slide , it cycles abs on and off quickly to help you remain in control of car, feature is more designed for driving on icey roads. Just leave low trac. on and dont worry about it ( no trac, light on dash) hope this helps S.R. Peace
