Q: Display shows "Service AdvanceTrac", what does that mean?

asked by on

Not all of the time, but most, when I turn my key over in the ignition, my display will show 'Service AdvanceTrac' for just a second and then it goes away. This is the only time that I see it and I'm not sure why that is.

My car has 42723 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
