My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.

The first thing that needs to be done here is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a scan tool that can communicate with all computers in this vehicle here.Once this has been done then it can be diagnosed as to what component is at fault and then repaired from there to correct the fault.Usually the traction warning wont cause a stall out and no start so this may be a fault with the electronic ignition switch or another control unit/computer in the vehicle causing this issue here.There are several black boxes in the vehicle from relays to control units/computers so the fault codes do need checked to locate and correct this issue here.You might be able to rent a scan tool from a local parts store as some parts stores will do this so you can check the codes.
