Left the keys in the ignition adn had AAA jump it. Now the T/C with a slash through it came on and the light that says low engine power. The car starts really rough and has no power when u drive it. WHats...
T/C light = Traction Control
Could be something going on with a wheel speed sensor. You'll have to
have the ABS/TCS controller scanned for any stored trouble codes to see
why the controller is turning on the light. The code(s) might help you
to determine what part of the system is faulting. You'll have to take
it to a shop that has a high end scan tool.
If the TC light is on,
chances are there is a trouble code set and stored in the computer. You
need to determine what the code is. If you take the car to a
nationally recognized parts store, most will scan the computer for free,
so there is no money out of pocket for you.
Actron also makes a ABS code checker called BrakeScan. Don't know how good it is, but it might be good for a DIY person.
If your vehicle is equipped with the Enhanced Traction System
(ETS), this warning light should come on briefly as you start the
engine. If the warning light does not come on, then have it fixed so it
will be ready to warn you if there is a problem.
warning light stays on, or comes on when you are driving, there may be a
problem with your Enhanced Traction System and your vehicle may need
service. When this warning light is on, the system will not limit wheel
spin. Adjust your driving accordingly.
The Enhanced Traction System warning light may come on for the following reasons:
you turn the system off by moving the shift lever to FIRST (1), the
warning light will come on and stay on. To turn the system back on, move
the shift lever back to a position other than FIRST (1). The warning
light should go off.
warning light will come on when you set your parking brake with the
engine running, and it will stay on if your parking brake does not
release fully. If the transaxle shift lever is in any position other
than FIRST (1) and the warning light stays on after your parking brake
is fully released, it means there is a problem with the system.
the traction control system is affected by an engine-related problem,
the system will turn off and the warning light will come on. If
the Enhanced Traction System warning light comes on and stays on for an
extended period of time when the transaxle shift lever is in any
position other than FIRST (1), your vehicle needs service.
