Hello. If the traction light is coming on then that will cause the vehicle to lose power and not move easily. This system needs to be diagnoses. It may be a bad vehicle speed sensor, wheel speed sensor or something else. Since the light is coming on the system will need to be scanned with the right scan tool to see which sensor may be failing. If you need to have this looked at, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to you to [diagnose why the traction light is coming on] https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/traction-control-light-is-on-inspection
