My car has 148000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. It appears you have a few different issues going on here. First, in regards to the steering wheel, it’s likely that your Electronic power steering system is either damaged or has a bad sensor or electrical connection. The AdvanceTrac warning light is possibly triggered by the spare tire being on the vehicle. I would recommend having the flat tire replaced or repaired and reinstalled on the vehicle first and see if this clears up the warning light. If not, it’s best to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location to complete a warning light inspection, so they can isolate the source of both issue you’re experiencing.
