Hello, when the asr (accelerated slip reduction) light comes on the dash it means there is a issue with the traction system, now the fact that the engine starts to run bad tells me that there is a issue with the throttle body as the throttle body is electronic and is also tied into the traction system. you will need to have the codes checked to see what is actually failing, hope this helps.
