when I travel on the interstate in Ky at 70 mph, the traction light flashes. It will continue to flash until the engine is shut off. If the light is not flashing when I take it to the transmission shop, is there a memory that they can read?

    I have seen the wheel speed sensor gose bad and this cause the traction light to flash, the computer thinks the wheel is sliding on ice ( not turning) the transmission shop fix transmission you need to go to a auto repair shop, we have the tool to fix the car, we would be glad to look at your car. PS when ever there is a troble light flashing most newer will take a snap shot and keep a history of the troble codes in the computer
