I fail to see how the throttle control sensor would effect the brake lights.

Steering wheel light is on after battery went dead (along with traction control).


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

How do you reset tcs/slip light on a 1999 infinit q45


Hi there:

Pull the codes to get started. Normla process is when the slip light will flash on and then go off. TCS is your Traction Control System. It is normal for it to go off If the rear wheels are slipping. You may have worn tires or you are driving on ice or snow. Are you on a slippery surface when this happens? You can always shut the system down by pressing the TCS off button in the center console.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Abs & TCS-off dash lights both stay on. Pushing the TCS off switch does not help. "seem" to stop fine. Emergency brake seems to be fully off, not dragging. My wife encountered a patch of ice...


Hello: If there is a problem in the ABS it will bring on the tcs light as well. To determine what is causing the problem you need to have the ABS checked with a scanner to get the code. Then trouble shoot the components that the code leads you to. Normal braking is available with the light on but TCS is not as it relies on ABS for functioning the TCS.

TCS light on


The TCS (Traction Control System) indicator comes on or flashes under the following conditions:

When you turn the ignition switch
to ON (II).

When you manually turn off the
TCS.

It flashes when the TCS is
regulating wheelspin.

If the system's diagnostics senses
a problem in the TCS, the indicator
will come on and stay on.

If the brakes overheat, the
indicator will come on.

If the TCS indicator comes on and stays on for more than 10 minutes while driving, pull to the side of the road when it is safe and turn off the engine. Reset the system by restarting the engine, and watch the TCS indicator. If the indicator remains on, or comes back on while driving, have the system inspected by your Honda dealer. You can still drive the vehicle without TCS.

This indicator will come on along with the ABS indicator if there is a problem in the anti-lock brake system.
The TCS indicator may occasionally come on for one or two seconds and then go out. This is normal.

Hope this helps you figure it out.

TCS/SLIP & Check Engine Light Warning


TCS is Traction Control System,and all TCS's are controlled though the Anti Lock Braking (ABS) system.Here's how it works:Each wheel,or in some cases,only the drive wheels have a speed sensor mounted near the hub or axle,and sends a speed signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module).The PCM monitors wheel speed continuously,and if it sees a speed out of the ordinary,say for example the right rear tire is spinning and traveling at a much higher speed than the left rear,the PCM will pulse the brakes through the ABS system on the right rear to slow down the right rear so that the left and right wheel speeds match up,this is how the traction control works.So,if you have a TCS problem,the PCM will see this and set a Dignostic Trouble Code (DTC).You need to pull the DTC's out of the system with a scan tool,diagnose and repair the DTC's.It could likely be something as simple as a malfunctioning wheel speed sensor,but you won't know until the codes are pulled out,as this will point in the general direction.Good luck.
