Chevy Cavalier Trac Off light

Asked by Apr 01, 2017 at 08:56 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Chevy Cavalier, the check
engine light and Trac Off light are on. It
won't go over 40 mph, it's shifting hard
and sometimes it dies at red lights,
Replaced the fuel filter and spark plugs.
Got a scan and it said it was the 02 sensor,
replaced that and it's still not fixed. Any
suggestions?

You may have a plugged catalytic converter, should go to an exhaust shop to have that looked at. The track light would be in the ABS codes to know whats going on there. Some scanners are not capable of reading ABS codes, so ask if theirs does.

Your welcome.

I have the exact same problem. I finally was able to get a mechanic to read it and it is fuse in the engine that needs to be replace, at least mine was (I can't remember what exactly he said it was). Cost is about $150-$200 with labor. I'm getting rid of the car in a few days, so I did not get it fixed. Does yours clear when you turn the car off and back on?
