Several autoparts stores like Autozone, Oreilys and Advance will scan your vehicle for free and tell you what Codes are present. The scanners are different, so the store would need a scanner that has the ability to diagnose the traction control system with the ABS.

The Traction control works with the ABS to limit wheel slip. Intermittent flashing of the Traction light can occur, sometimes the brake pads are worn and do not respond as well as they should. The system counts the RPM of each wheel, applies braking and can interrupt power of the engine.

See what the scan shows.

Traction control light on and engine power reduced


you could have a stuck switch .....check your traction control switch on your dashboard....engage and disengage it , while paying attention to the rpms...notice any change...if you do notice a change, then replace the switch....if no change, it is probably on the trans itself and should not be a dealer only fix....your local reliable trans shop should be able to fix you up without emptying your entire wallet.

Dashboard control panel lights on 2001 Chevy Silverado go off. Sometimes they come back on when I hit a bump. Electronic odometer, Drive indicator lights go off.


This could be either a bad headlight switch or dimmer switch. Sometimes the dimmer switch gets dust inside it and causes these symptoms.

1996 Lincoln Continental engine shuts off


replace inertia switch in trunk first. It is designed to shut off fuel pump in an accident. It may be too sensitive.

Other possibility is the fuel pump relay near the engine computer.

Last is computer power relay since it powers the computer, and the computer operates the fuel pump relay.

report back please.

Switch on dashboard does not change air direction to flow & vents


Defrost is the default mode so if the system fais, you alays have defrost. The mode doors are controlled by vacuum motors. I would suspect a vacuum leak in the engine compartment on the hose going from the engine through the firewall and into the heater controls. Some systems have a vacuum storage canister that can also leak. The canister stores vacuum when vacuum drops going up a hill.
Or, you have a bad heater control head that is not passing vacuum to the vacuum motors on the mode doors.

Here's a diagram of the system for reference.
