These are most likely related - when the vehicle detects certain emissions faults it will turn off the vehicle's traction control - not a safety issue.

The service light is on due to an emissions control fault - need to have vehicle scanned to find the source of the error.

What does the slip indicator light mean on a 2003 Lexus SC430?

In general, if you see this light come on while driving a car with traction control, it means that the system has detected a loss of traction on one or more wheels. The traction control system will engage to correct it. Usually it only lights up briefly. If that light stays on all the time, there's something wrong with the sensor or the electrical connection to the light.

Where is the traction control sensor on a 2005 Buick terraza?

There is no such thing as a 'traction control sensor'.But, If you are referring to the "Traction Control System", there are Many components that make up the Traction Control System.The heart of Traction Control System is the "EBCM" (Electric Brake Control Module). The EBCM monitors the wheel speed sensors for Drive Wheel Slip. When drive wheel slip is noted while the brake is not applied, the EBCM will enter "Traction Control Mode".When vehicle enters Traction Control Mode, the EBCM sends a request to the "PCM" (Power Control Module) to reduce the amount of torque to the drive wheels. If the engine torque reduction does not eliminate drive wheel slip, the EBCM will actively apply the drive wheel brakes.The EBCM in the 05' Buick Terraza is located on the "BPMV" (Brake Pressure Modulator Valve). In other words, the EBCM is mounted on the Antilock Brake Controller.
