The car is running funny and low Trac keeps popping up what is it mean

Asked by Nov 11, 2013 at 11:05 PM about the 2001 Pontiac Sunfire SE

Question type: General

This is caused by your traction control being activated. When your wheels slip and lose traction such as on ice, snow, sand, etc. the computer senses it and alerts you by turning on the "low trac" light. When this happens the computer also reduces engine power to help your wheels stop slipping and regain traction again. HTH. -Jim
