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
