    Hello,
    I don't believe the 1992 960 has a TRAC System. It does have ABS though.
    Exactly what lights are flashing?

    Great, now I understand. You transmission control module has detected a problem in the transmission or one of the transmission sensors. My guess is that the GPS (Gear Position Sensor) is failing, this is very common on this vehicle. You'll need to get the diagnostic trouble codes read out. If you get the code 3-1-3, then the GPS will need replacement.
    Good Luck!
