What does 'trac off' mean for a 99 Pontiac Grand Am?

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". :)

You need a new front wheel bearing. Hook up to a computer to see which side it is. Alternative method is to wait until the light goes off and turn sharply both to the right and left if it cuts on in both directions you need both, otherwise it is the on the side that causes the light to come on.

Why would service engine soon light and trac off lights keep coming on in 2001 grand am?

Don't know about the "trac off" light, but the "service engine soon" light is set by the factory to come on a set number of miles (70,000 on mine) to remind you to get a tune-up. Most people either ignore this light, or take it to a mechanic buddy that knows how to reset it. But, if your warrantee is not expired, you may invalidate it by failing to get the tune-up.
