SOURCE: Check Engine light and traction control light stay

there is nothing to do here but have the dealer run a scanner test to see what trouble codes were set with the lights coming on, until then there is no way to tell what the problem might be as there are over 200 possibilities.

SOURCE: Engine warning light on Mazda MPV 2002

There seem to be 4 sensors along the way in the air intake and emissions system.

My Check Engine light indicated a bad sensor 1, bank 2 code (I think).

I had my mechanic replace the sensor that was indicated as faulty... cost = $191.

Then the Check Engine light came on again (with a different code), and I had to leave the van with him all day.

Cost to replace and install that sensor = $115.

My advice: if the Check Engine light stays on *AND* your vehicle is riding rough, get it fixed.

Otherwise, put a piece of tape over that Check Engine light and save a couple hundred dollars!

Hope this helps, I do trust my mechanic fully.

SOURCE: Handbrake and Traction control warning lights illuminated amber

Had DTC warning light come on on my 120i (2005 reg). Without prompting dealer contacted BMW who agreed to pay for part and half the labour as it seems to be a common problem for 04-06 models.

SOURCE: Engine light and ABS traction control light remain

The ABS sensor is a speed sensor also for Traction Control. This is why both lights are on , One of your front ABS sensors are bad or disconnected, or has a pinched wire.

Electronic Stability Program, or traction control. Might have a bad sensor at the wheels, or faulty traction control module.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, TCS OFF LIGHT AND THE TRACTION LIGHT are on...


Code 340 is for a problem with the cam position sensor. That would affect the tach and cause the check engine light to be on.
And most all the time the check engine light is on the other warning lights will be also. The Traction control system uses the engine and the ABS system to function. So if there is a problem with the engine, the TCS will be disabled.
The cam sensor and circuits would need to be tested. It could be a wiring problem.

Ok, my 2000 acura 3.2 tl egine light blinks and the tcs light stays on, also the engine has a slight shake at idle. Took to autozone to get the codes came back as all 6 cylinders misfire, multiple misfire,...


This is strange. The tcs is a traction controll error. If you are getting misfire codes and traction control warnings, then I would have your control module tested to make sure it is not having intermittent power issues to each component.

Why does my traction off light come on?


You either have a problem with your engine control system, the traction control system, or you are not in the correct gear. See the explaination below. This is from the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner's Manual.

TRAC-OFF LIGHT

... If you turn the system off by moving the shift lever

to FIRST (1) or SECOND (2), 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) or SECOND (2). The warning light

should go off. (See "Enhanced Traction System"

in the Index for more information.)

 The warning light will come on when you set your

parking brake with the engine running, and it will

stay on if your parking brake doesn't release fully.

If the transaxle shift lever is in any position other

than FIRST (1) or SECOND (2) and the warning

light stays on after your parking brake is fully

released, it means there's a problem with the system.

 If 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) or SECOND (2) your vehicle needs service.

I am running a mazda 6 TS2 2004 model. 2 amber lights came on my dashboard this morning. One of a car skidding and the other of an engine.


these are traction control and service engine. first look for a button or switch for the traction then have an obd2 scan done. you can scan it first this may tell you about the traction. your local auto zone or advance auto does this service for free if you don't have access yourself.

What does the master warning light mean? (triangel with ! and the three lights points to the car).


This light shows operational status of traction control system. If it is constantly lit when engine is running, this means that traction control system is off. If the light flashes during driving, it means the loss of traction at the wheels, and traction control system is operating- decreasing engine torque to stop exessive wheelspin.
Good luck.

Warning lights what do they mean, a triangle with a line in the middle


This is the Traction Control Warning light. Traction control is device added to the engine/gearbox sytem, and is designed to help minimise wheel spins when moving away, particularly on a slippery surface. When the system detects the wheels starting to slip and Traction control starts to cut in this warning light shows.

Traction control cannot do much to help in severe ice or snow though, so you can expect to see this light showing or flashing if the conditions are extreme.

If this light shows when the conditions are not extreme, stopping and restarting the engine will often reset it.

How do I turn traction control on? Light on dash says "traction off" all the time.


The Enhanced Traction System warning light may come on for the following reasons:
If you turn the system off by shifting to SECOND (2) or FIRST (1), the warning light will come on and stay on. To turn the system back on,shift to THIRD (3) or AUTOMATIC OVERDRIVE

If 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 lightmcomes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the system is turned on, your vehicle needs service. Adjust your driving accordingly..

Brake sensor? something else?


You have a faulty wheel speed sensor. This is a magnetic pick up sensor on your wheel bearing hub and it controls your abs. If the car can not sense all 4 wheels then the abs will default back to normal brakes and your traction control will not work. Look at your wheel bearing hubs and check for these sensors. They are on the underside of the car and are black plastic with a wire comming out of it. A piece of gravel may have broken the pick up or the wires to a sensor may be broken as well. To replace it is usually a couple of screws on the hub assembly and a plug to disconnect from your wire harness.
