Can you tell us why you think the battery is good until "Nov 2020" ?
These cars are very symptomatic with a weak or failing battery.
And what are "tracking lights" ?

Welcome to the forums. The Traction Control is part of the ABS (antilock brake) module. Get the fault codes read with a scan tool and let us know what the fault codes are that they find.
The codes should stay in memory even if the warning light is off.
An auto parts store may be able to read the code(s) for free. Have the battery and charging system tested for free also if they have time and the counter isn't too busy.

Stopped today but they cannot run test to to 19 virus. No auto store allowed in car. Won't go to Chysler as they will charge. Tracking light meant to say traction. Thanks for all your help. Will get checked soon.

When all this virus hullaballoo is over, get it checked.
In the meantime, it is probably safe to drive. You just may not have the benefit of Traction control and/or ABS.
The battery expiration date or Pro Rata warranty doesn't mean much. It may fail years down the road or it can fail under warranty. If you are having no problem starting the car, you are likely OK. The parts store can do a load and capacity test when able.
Be careful out there.

Just buy a code reader, they're cheap, all you have to do is plug it in under the dash and it will read the code (s), anyone can do it.
