Hello and welcome to justanswer

When the check engine light turns on it will also cause the trac warning light to turn on, this is by design and it will remain on until the cause for the check engine light is fixed first, since you don't have the code information I'm going to ask you to get this information for me so that I can help you take care of this problem, I assume that you reside in the US, you can have the diagnostic codes retrieved at most of the larger auto parts stores like Autozone, Advance Auto etc, they do this at no charge unless you have a code reader or know someone you can borrow one from, after you have the code information for the check engine light I'll be happy to help you with recommendations on how to proceed.
