Unhappy ETS off light staying on

My 97 Cavalier ETS off light is staying on and also the engine light. Any suggestions. Thanks.

When you say the engine light, I'm assuming you mean the check or service engine light. So the first step is to get a scan to see what codes come up. What ever is causing the check engine light to come on may be the underlying cause of the ets light. Go by AutoZone if there's one nearby and they will scan it for free. Post back what they find.

For the ETS light, the switch in the shifter is either bad or there is a broken wire from that switch. You need to buy the shifter knob assembly to replace the switch.

But I don't think that would illiminate his check engine light, would it?

No, it would not illuminate the check engine light.

would low tire pressure in the front cause that? I seem to remember that as being an issue at one time or another.

Hmmm, good question. It's a traction control system, so I suppose, anything related might do it, but I rather think it's something else and the check engine light is the clue.
