    Check Engine Light and Traction Control Lights share some inputs that can cause the lights to come on (fixing one may fix the other) do you have the codes they will look something like P0430, or P1142. If you can tell us the codes I can tell you the proable cuases.

    Unfortunately it is a common problem. The torque converter fails and sends debris into the transmission it is important that the transmission oil cooler is properly cleaned to avoid repeat failure of the transmission.
