The traction control system has engaged and is applying the brakes and / or altering the power to the drive wheels to control wheel slip. Read your owners manual for specifics.

When the traction light is on you have the traction control turned on in your vehicle and traction control is activated. Traction control is applying brakes to a wheel that losing traction.

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.

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". :)

On my 2000 model focus, when the light is on permanently, this means the traction control has been turned off.

The Traction Control Light comes on every time you turn on the ignition. It should go off as soon as you start the engine. If it does not, then you have the traction control turned off. Turn it back on and the light will go off. If you have the Traction Control turned on and the light stays lit, then there is a problem with the traction control.

Because the traction control has been turned off. Locate the button to push to turn it back on. Your owners manual will list the location of this button.

I have an 01 Pontiac sunfire and I have noticed that the check gages light comes on when the gas is low. I have never seen any other indicator come on for low fuel.

Enhanced Traction System or Traction Control.

The traction control system malfunction light is a warning light that indicates the tires are losing traction on the road. If driving in adverse weather when the light comes on slowing down will make it go out.
