ETS is connected to your ABS. ETS is a traction control and is linked to your ABS so to get your ETS light off you'll probably have to fix your ABS to get the light off. On mine, fixing a broken wire on my ABS plug which runs into the hub fixed my problem.

Should the ETS System on a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire be on or off?

If your ETS light is on you may want to take a look a your brakes. If your brakes are making a noise, then the sensor has tripped your ETS sensor. Your ETS light is just like the ABS in most vehicles, it means there is a brake problem. Usually it means it is time to change them. The ETS should be off unless there is an electrical problem in the switch (located on the autmatic shifter on some models), or some other electrical problem somewhere else that is causing it to read as off by the computer.

change the oxygen sensor and remove the positive battery terminal for two-three minutes to let the computer reset. This allows the computer to recalibrate for the new sensor. You might have to drive for a while for the "cycle" to complete. That's it.

The ETS light on your 96 sunfire wont turn off how do you fix this im not sure if the ETS is on or just the light?

If you have not turned the traction control off, then you should take it to the dealer so that they can diagnose the problem. This is not something that you can do without all of the special equipment needed to test the system. Also it will be cheaper than guessing and possibly replacing the wrong parts.

Why does the Ets off and abs light go on at the same time on your sunfire?

The ABS and ETS light are interconnected because they use the wheel speed sensors to calculate wheel slippage or wheel lock-up. If there is a faulty wheel speed sensor detected the computer will turn on the fault lights and disable the systems (will not work if the car goes into a skid, etc)
