The traction light came on in my Ford 500 SEL along with the ABS light. If this happened, the problem was low battery power and a bad alternator. A fully charged battery fixed it for me after driving a couple of miles.

This is a computerized traction control system that monitors the wheel spin and makes split second adjustments... if the light is on, Ford recommends servicing the system. I'd check with a local non-dealer mechanic that may be able to help you out cheaper than a dealer first.

What is wrong when the "transaction active" light comes on, on the dash board


Transaction? I never seen that. When do you see this come on?
Does it go off or stays on all the time?
I can only think of 2 things:
Traction as in traction control unit goes active meaning it wont slide the rear end under power on rain or snow etc...
Or I have seen an option for towing a trailer where there is a button usually at the end of the shifter lever.
Both of them are ok to have a lite on, if you were to have a problem with transmission you would have the check engine light on and maybe the transmission switch light blinking.
Check you owners manual for a reference of this light.

Mazdaspeed 3 08 Traction control light on


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Ford Five Hundred head lights and dash lights are flashing.


I would check battery voltage with a meter when the lights are flashing to check alternator output. Might be a ground problem.

Light comes on "Traction Active" and wheels lock down.


Hi David:
When the Engine Control Module encounters problems, it will also disable the traction control system. Scanned the ECM to know fault codes stored there, repairing this codes and clearing the codes will turn off the Traction indicator and allows the traction control to work once again.

If the Traction Control light is coming on, the traction control is activating and can cause a jerking problem. Nothing last the life of the vehicle, however the timing chain should not need to be changed at 49,000 miles. If it does, I would have them do it under warranty. See if you can get the codes and send them to me. That way we can get a better ideal of what is going on. Could you please tell me what these codes stand for?

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day
