Looks like your alternator is about to fail. Are you having flat battery problems? If so you are likely to breakdown when the battery runs flat while you are driving. Best get it checked out, or check yourself if you can. The repair is posible to make yourself, if your used to doing fairly dificult repairs, otherwise it's quite a costly repair in a Porsche approved garage..Good luck

Abs light and traction light came on at the same time


You need to have the ABS system scanned for fault codes and then the problem can be diagnosed. The one problem will have caused both warnings to display and it might just be a failed wheel speed sensor.

In any event check your battery condition first. If you have a weak battery this can trigger the ABS and TC warnings but in a 2013 car your battery should still be OK.

Why dose the tc light stay on my 02 cavalier


If the abs light is on there is a code set in the abs system. When a code sets it disables tc and abs. You need to have it scanned for codes

Abs and traction control dash lites come on and off at various time..sometimes never come on


Your abs and traction control lights should only come on when you start to slide while breaking(ABS), and when your wheels spin in place when excelerating(TC). If those 2 things don't happen, which with some people they never do, you should never see the lights come on. Only when those mechanisms are in use do the lights come on. And they will always flicker as that is what abs and tc are, intermitant surges to break up the constant. ABS does this for obvious reasons...anti lock break, so when you slide, the abs "taps" the breaks in short bursts so they don't lock up. TC "taps" the exclelrator when it slips. Those "taps" are what trigger the lights on your dash, which is why they flicker and don't stay on.

Air bag reset 1995 toyota camry


I haven't had to try this but here is a procedure for resetting the airbag after the battery was disconnected


"How do you reset the airbag warning light in a '94 Camry?


A: Clearing the warning light in '92-'96 Camrys by the following procedure:
In the DLC1 or DCL2 (data link connector under the hood, see attached diagram):
Use two short wires, one wire at terminal TC and a different wire at terminal AB:
With the ignition key ON - wait 6 seconds, then:
Ground terminal TC to good body ground for one second
Then ground terminal AB for one second
Then TC one second
Then AB one second
Then ground TC until the light blinks.
Make sure the interval between grounding the terminals is not more than 2 secs.
Remove the ground wires.




Be very careful to only use the correct terminals.

ABS LIGHT AND TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT STAYS ON


ABS = Anti-lock Brake System.
TC = Traction Control System (Engine Control Module).
If the ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ABS system is faulty. You must access the ABS & TC Electronic Control Units (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ABS ECU, in other words reset the ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

I suspect bad brake pedal switch, but you should scan the ABS & TC ECU's.

Tc whont turn on the light wont turn off abs light wont turn off


Your ABS system has detected a fault in the system. When that happens, the TC is automatically turned off. You will have to have the ABS diagnosed and repaired before the TC will come on again.
Good luck.

What does it mean when ur tc light is on in a chevy cobalt 05


tc stands for traction control and usually means that something in the system is not in order, say like a wheel speed sensor. However, if the abs light goes on at the same time, it's usually a wheel speed sensor somewhere.

This could be a module or a wire to the wheel speed sensor on the tc side.

Get an ABS Brakescan Tool, like an Actron OBD-II ABS Brakescan tool to help to diagnose what is wrong.

They cost like $100 plus shipping on Amazon.com.

My tc and abs light are coming on all the


Speedo and traction control; check wheel sensors all 4, clean and blow the sensors and reactor rings.
Is ABS light on as well? if so, you need a EBTCM module mounted to the brake ABS pump facing the battery. There are places in the US that rebuild them with warranty for under $150.

ABS and TC light is staying on. Have replace hub


air gap at the abs module,is adjusted to far from the rotor, find which one is to far out and re adjust it.the deog mch should spot which one is out but not every time, you have to guess, or make adjustments on all wheels, the thickness of a match book cover is pretty close adjustment, but not in all cases.

THE TC light had a wrench beside it? And the TC light says the TC is off and the ABS light is now lit up. I tried pushing the button to turn the TC on and Off but this makes no difference


chances are there is a problem in the abs system, which also controls the traction control. have the car scanned for codes, which will give you a starting point for diagnosing. good luck!
