Asked by Sep 11, 2015 at 03:58 PM about the 2000 Pontiac Grand Am SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The Trac Off light comes on after a few minutes of driving and the
transmission bangs into gear when going from drive to park to reverse.
Any ideas why would be greatly appreciated.

tran fluid low or needs changed

Trans fluid is a separate problem from the Trac Light. The light issue is probably a wheel sensor that needs replacement so your ABS and Traction control work properly.
