If the light comes on under normal driving conditions then it is your vacuum/vent solenoids...One is faulty

If you're flooring the car and there's wheelspin that will activate the tcs, which stands for traction control system. It cuts fuel to slow you down until you gain traction. So no burnouts on the TL. =D

4L and 4H lights flashes when you try to engage either of them in 05 Isuzu Rodeo


this is a part time 4wd, not AWD.
and as such must not be run on dry ice free pavement.
so post if car is on said pavement.
test 4wD in DIRT, does it work now, or not?
if you keep doing it on dry pavement this happens.

2000 Honda Odyssey Engine Light and TCS lights come on at engine start up when its cold out.


TCS is a separate issue from PCM code. I would disconnect the plug from PCM and clean with contact cleaner. Most of the times humidity creates corrosion on the pins.

Why the tcs ligth turn on when i acelerate the car in over drive?


If you are accelerating the car fast enough to cause wheel slip, the Traction Control System (TCS) is kicking in to keep you from spinning out and the light is simply telling you that the TCS is taking control. This is normal operation as long as the light goes out as soon as the conditions for wheel slippage have subsided. (Heavy acceleration, wet pavement, ice and snow, etc.)

The TCS<ABS> warning light on my Hyundai


If you are driving in slick conditions on snow and ice or on wet pavement, this could be NORMAL OPERATION. The lights are coming on to let you know that the Traction Control System (TCS) and the Antilock Brake System (ABS) is actively correcting a wheel slip condition.

If this is happening on dry pavement, and you are not driving like a maniac, (making the wheels slip and slide) then there is possibly a problem with one of your wheel speed sensors that is making your TCS and ABS computers "think" that there is a wheel slipping. You will have to scan your computer system and watch the wheel speed sensor data to find out which one is malfunctioning.

My subaru forester flashes TCS light as i am driving it whats the problem


TCS is traction control system. It is a sensor that measures the quality of your traction with the road. If it is flashing, slow down and see if it stops. The problem is sometimes due to a faulty sensor and not the actual traction. J.

With snow car does not have any power, we turn tcs off no help


Don't turn off traction control - it helps the car maintain traction.
A 350Z isn't a car that should be driven in the snow.
If you are rolling down a hill you have other issues.
Does it roll back if it's on dry pavement?

And remember snow makes tires slip.

What does the TCS Off button do?


TCS stands for Traction Control System.
The traction control system works in conjunction with your Antilock Brake System (ABS) and your Engine Control Module (ECM) or Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Unit (ECU) (Note that ECM, ECU, and PCM all mean the computer that controls your engine, depending on make.)

Anyway, the traction control system can apply one or more of the brakes and control engine RPM in the event that a wheel slip has been detected by the traction control system.

Pushing the TCS button on most models will light a lamp in the instrument cluster that usually says "Trac Off" Pressing it a second time will turn this light back off.

When the "Trac Off" light is illuminated, the Traction Control System is disabled and will not work in the event of a wheel slip.

Also note that when the Traction Control System is working and a wheel slip is detected, The Traction Control Module will usually illuminate a light that says "Trac" as it is taking control of your brakes and engine. It can feel really strange when this occurs and some people think that their transmission is slipping or that their engine has a misfire problem.
The chances are that if it occurred on wet, slippery pavement, the Traction Control System may have just saved your life.

If this is happening on dry pavement and normal driving conditions (starting, stopping, or turning), there may be a problem with the system. "False Traction Control" can happen just like a bad wheel sensor causing "False Antilock Mode".

Also check your Owners Manual for more specific information pertaining to your particular vehicle.

Traction Control problem


I would pull the fuse. I do not like traction control or abs personally and I pull the fuse on both. They tend to have problems in their circuits and the pumps and I do not trust them
