What could happen if advance Trac isn't serviced

My car has 87000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Advancetrac is just your traction control system and is not necessarily a safety issue. This is an optional feature for driving a car. Although many vehicles come with this feature standard it is not necessary for normal driving. If you have an Advancetrac warning light I would recommend getting the system inspected to determine what the cause of the issue is. But if you decide that fixing the problem is not on your priority list, you should be ok to drive the vehicle for a while without any issues unless you are already experiencing drivability issues.
