Trac light flashing usually means random misfire. Check your coil packs and plugs

I fix the prob ... I bought electronics spray cleaner from radio shack ... Remove the MAL .. Spray the lil bulb lookin thing inside and also the connectors and reinstalled it ... Disconnected battery like sit for about 10 minute off .. Replaced ... Turn on car ... Light stop flashing and trac control works. Now .. So wen I makin a turn and press the gas I don't slide no more at least not as much ... Did it weekend pass its been 4 days and it works like normal
