Well i got a flat about 2 weeks ago, and ever since then my car has come out saying low traction constantly and it wont let me accelerate. i know im not losing traction because im not even accelerating at all. does anyone know wat it might be caused by? im lowered 2.75" in the front and have almost 120,000 miles. 80,000 of that was lowered. no cel comes on though, so i cant figure out what it is cuz no code is being is thrown to tell me...

Must be some sensor near the wheel that got messed up. I don't enough about the system but it seems to me that there must be some kind of sensor monitoring the spin of the front front wheels and feeding it back to the computer to compare it with the known speed.

Of course I could be wrong.

You could try a scanner on it just to see if it threw a code and then turned off. Old codes are stored unless they are cleared out with the scanner.

A little googling found that the sensors it probably uses are the ABS sensors. If you have a bad sensor a good scanner should show it.
