Chevy cavalier trac off light came on while driving and car turned off pulled over and wouldn't restart could running out of gas cause this gas was low?

I doubt that running out of gas will my the low trac light come on. I own an 02 Cavalier, and the trac light has to do with the amount of traction you have on any given surface. If you know a mechanic I would have them check it out.

Key stuck in cavalier ignition?

Ask your mechanic, he would know better. But, there is a pin near your gear selector that is engaged when you are in any drive gear, park or neutral, as well as when your key is in the running position, start position etc, that is not functioning properly. The pin is in a state of "feeling" like you are still in any one of those positions and you obviously know that you can't pull your key out of the ignition while your car is running anyway. So this pin has your key locked in the ignition because it thinks your car is still running.

What would cause the windshield wipers and radio in a 91 Cavalier to quit running?

Try checking the fuses. If ok, then it is a wiring or electrical prob. You might also want to check your ignition switch. it may not be making contact properly. I found this happening on my1991 cavalier also. If I would twist the ignition like I was going to start it again, but not far enuff to grind the starter, everything would start woring again. this would sometimes last a long time and other time not so long. So, with that said I would place my money into the ignition switch.
