What does the TRAC button do and or mean on the dashboard of Saturn 2002?
It turns off your traction control. Meaning the wheels may slip in poor traction conditions when in the on position the vehicles comp. will lessen the torque on the wheels or divert the power to a different wheel. I'd leave it on!
There is also a traction control light that flickers when the traction control is detecting wheel slippage and trying to compensate. I check this and if it flickers too much, I shift down. If you turn off the traction control this light will not flicker, so you won't realize you should shift down.
There are a few rare circumstances where it is useful to turn off the traction control, the button is there for those cases but right now I don't recall them.
What is the 'trac' button for on a 2000 Pontiac grand prix I bought it used and didn't get a manual.?
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…

problem with anti theft take to the dealer Check under your dash, you may have a reset button that will allow you to start your Trac with that. The only problem is that every time you need to start your Trac, you will have to hit that button before hand. Also try locking your doors, then unlocking them with your key fob, then try starting your Trac.
"Trac" stands for traction. If/when the drive wheels slip the computer causes a deliberate misfire of the engine to reduce power to the wheels. The purpose of that power reduction is to prevent more wheel slippage since once the wheels start slipping, you have considerably less control. Leave "Trac" engaged, it doesn't cause any problems during normal driving.
I was looking in the 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac owners manual and IF you have the FFV engine ( flexible fuel vehicle ) you can run E85 or " regular " unleaded gas with an octane rating of 87 or any combination of the 2 fuels If your 2002 Sport Trac is a FFV there will be a sticker inside your fuel door , and the 8th " character " of your VIN will…
