The yellow light of engine lights while driving. what should I do?


The indicator of the traction control fire and someone warned me that my right rear wheel did not rotate it. Could this have to do with frost or a slippery road? Now the light is otherwise not.


I ride recently with a four-speed automatic transmission. I can stand in the + - from 1 to 4 upshifts and downshifts. In this position, the wage does not brake on the engine. The garage says this is normal, right? I should always slow in the Alps?


I actually have a question? If I put my car on the handbrake, and he later again take the light stays on. This problem is not always, sometimes he goes out as normal. Everything is in order in terms of brake fluid. Can someone help me?
