asked by on

is it safe to drive my car with the my check engine light turned on and it also it says that the traction control turned off.

My car has 3934 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

I do not recommend driving the vehicle until the car is diagnosed as to why the lights came on. The issue may constitute your vehicle to be unsafe to drive and should only be driven only to get to a safe stopping location.
