Default Coolant/Check Engine light/Traction control off....

I have been losing coolant, and have been dealing with the dealer on that topic.

What happens with the '96 SSE, is it starts to miss, Check Engine light comes on, then Traction Control Off Light comes on, then Low Coolant light. . by then I'm already off the road and calling for a tow.

It did it the other day, and the dealer claimed a fouled plug, coolant leak by a sensor, and replaced the ICM, too. Yesterday.

Today same set of pull off the road events.

the question is.... could the PCM be throwing back the 'Traction Control Off' light because of the CE light? I've never had any problem with brakes, ABS, or the TC until this coolant war started with the dealer. I don't want a TC problem on top of the real problem.

Did the dealer determine the origin of the coolant loss? I'd be more concerned about the loss of coolant than the TC at this point.

My back and forth with the dealer who sold me the car and the coolant problem is in General Chat. I don't want to start another thread with all of that.

This is a specific techinical question re: warning messages returned. My situation demands that I understand every nit about what is going on. I may end up in court.
