Re: Advance Trac Light Issue, help
If the vehicle detects wheel slip, the traction control light will come on so you know that traction is compromised. Even things like taking a corner faster than one should can turn on the stability control. The system in my Pontiac G6 isn't too bad, but with the standard summer tires on driving in even light snow will turn it on almost instantly pulling out of the driveway. If you travel off-road (ie, gravel/dirt roads for instance) you can turn the advance-trac off so it doesn't hinder your ability to get over obstacles. If the system detects a lot of traction problems on more than one wheel, it can lower (think; cut) engine output automatically to help you steer the vehicle back on 'trac'.
