    What does the tracking light look like? I am not aware of this. unless you mean the anti-slip traction light. The hand held tester would not be able to read any traction codes. That takes a more robust tester.

    OK, you will need a scanner that is capable of testing your entire ABS system and vehicle stability control and traction control as well as your engine, trans, instrument cluster and Air bag system. I would recommed a complete systems scan.

    we had the same issue with our replace of $1,000 worth of stuff and come to find out apparently the manufacturers wired a coil pack harness wrong and it melts onto the manifold take it to a mechanic tell them what i just told you it will cost about $125 to fix but it runs like new
