Best Answer

It is the front wheel drive traction control light. When your tires spin on wet roads the traction control helps regain your tires grip on pavement. Find the button and push it. The "trac off" light will go off and it will show "traction active" only when the system is in use. Note that you cant do a burn out with traction control "on". :)

There should be a trac off button on the stearing wheel, when it is pushed to the off position, it makes the light come on. If it is set on the stearing wheel only when there is a issue with your tires should it come on. (Like if you going over very bumpy grounds)

What does it mean when your dashboard displays no trac in a 2000 Oldsmobile alero?

Do you mean Trac off? It means that the traction assist function has been turned off. It is controlled by the trac button which if the alero is like the grand am is on the shift knob left side. Trac off is the normal driving position, turn the trac on for slippery conditions. ABS problems could cause the trac to fail as it is an application of the brakes to slow the faster wheel down to match the other side. speed sensors also have some affect.
