What does the AdvanceTrac Warning Light mean?

The AdvanceTrac Warning Light is located on your instrument panel. This light will illuminate when your AdvanceTrac traction control system is currently in use, or when the system is malfunctioning. If the light stays on during normal weather conditions (when the traction control is not needed), then there is an issue with the system, and you should have your vehicle serviced. If the light only illuminates during adverse weather conditions (when the traction control is needed), then the system is operating properly. Tip The AdvanceTrac Warning Light briefly illuminates when your car is first turned on. The light is only a problem if it stays lit for an extended period.
