Default How Would I go About Checking If I have Traction Cont Or Not

My car will spin only for a fraction of a sec off the line one wheeled maybe then stop, yet when I floor it from rolling it spins louder, and about as long.

It has the power to spin rolling, yet it cant spin long from dead stop?

My manual doesnt say anything about TC, and I have no button.

I heard 94 lesabres had it.

If you don't have a button, I don't think you have TC.

it could be electronic tracting control. My g/f as a cavilier and it has ETS Electronic traction system (i think that is the name)

Is your gear shift on the steering wheel or on the floor? If its on the steering wheel and you have it, the button should be on the side of the shifter labeled "traction control" or "ETS". On the floor should be the same way.

Or you could check your RPO codes or fuses. ALL the fuses. Under the hood, in the primary panel, and above the passenger footwell hushpanel.
