Go to auto zone and have the codes read for free.

There is a button on the side of the shift knob, push it

WITH MY 98 CAVELIER,I FOUND THE VACUMN LINE TO THE MAP SENSOR OFF AND I REPLACED IT. NEXT I WENT THROUGH THE GEARS,AND THE E.T.S. LIGHT WENT OUT.THE ENGINE CHECK LIGHT WAS STILL ON AND I NOTICED I HAD THE LARGE HOSE "CARB TO AIR FILTER OFF" I INSTALLED IT AND THE LIGHT WENT OUT."IT HAS A SENSOR IN IT" SUMMARY IS THE CAR RUNS FINE. LOUIEBELLSON@COMCAST.NET HERES A BETTER SOLUTION... instead of wasting money that you don't need to, puh the button on the side of your shift knob. That's the ETS button. It will turn it on.

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 the traction control system. If you want it, you simply push the button to turn it on... you may have hit it inadvertently.. I used to own a 99 Grand Am (another GM product) and constantly did the same thing. Or it could be a fault in the ETS system. As for the check engine light, the first thing you do is find out the cause of it. You can go to any auto parts store and have them read the fault codes with their OBD2 scanner.

Check the coolant level in the reservoir. If that's up and the vehicle isn't overheating, you probably have a bad sensor.

I have a 98 Grand Cherokee 5.9 limited that does the same thing.
