if it has ets its a thumb switch on the shifter if it is displayed on the cluster its off if not it's on or not equiped

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.

I have a 1998 Pontiac sunfire gt and it is on the side of the gear shifter (automatic) however, if it is standard then I am unsure.

I have the same problem with my sunfire. no big deal. All the ETS(electronic tracking system)does is tell you and your sensors on your tires how well your tired are griping to the pavement.

wat does ETS dash light mean on a mercedes ml 320

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.

It is supposed to. ETS (Enhanced Traction System) is turned on and off with that switch. Leave it on. The system is on and working when the light is off.It is supposed to.

it is a enhanced traction service light simple sensor

the ets button should be locater right on the side of the shifter. i know for a fact on a 97 2.2L sunfire automatic tranny.

both lights, the check engine and the low coolant light need to be reset and only a GM dealership can do that because they are the only ones that have the codes

You need to start by having it checked for codes. Then you will know what to diagnose/fix.

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.

Check that your air sensor is plugged in/connected to where it should be - this is the most common reason for ETS light coming on

Why are ets and engine light on in 98 Chevy cavalier

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.

Normally the (Electronic Traction Control) ETS light is on when the ETS is turned off. Make sure the ETS is on and not off when driving at all times winter or summer.

Probably because you have the ETS turned off.

If these two lights come on together then the extra traction sensor is broken and needs to be replaced when the sensor is fixed the check engine light will go off and the ets light will work properly again.

ETS is Enhanced Traction System is used to stop wheel slip thru reducing engine output. There is almost no instance where you would need to turn this off. Leave it alone and leave the ETS on.

ETS stands for (Electronic Traction System) or as some call it Traction Control. Your Traction Control is simply turned off.

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)

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.

ETS on a GT means Enhanced Traction System (ETS) or Traction Control.
