SOURCE: abs and tcl lights stay on

Hi there:With the light staying off until you begin moving, this is indicating a wheel speed sensor fault. Essentially, everything looks good until it starts seeing wheel motion, and likely 3 are working and one is either skipping out or reading dead zero. This triggers the light as it is outside the normal range of skid failure and the system determines there is a problem beyond a mere traction issue.
The bad news (well, for most people) is that you are going to need to take this to a dealer for proper diagnosis and repair. The basic ABS system can be serviced at some upper tier independent shops, however the TCL system is rather special, and not many aftermarket scan tools will read it properly (some will scan it but give bogus or vague results).
The good news here is that your TCL system is still covered under the factory warranty. The speed sensors are most likely where we are going to find a problem based on your description of when it comes on, and these are covered under the five year 60,000 mile warranty.
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.

SOURCE: 2007 Mitsubishi Galant TCL Off light and service engine soon light

TCL is controlled by ABS system,could have an abs sensor going bad. There is alot of things that could cause a misfire,mass air flow sensor could be dirty or need replaced.Best bet is to take to someone with computer that can read what all sensors are doing in vehicle.

SOURCE: 2007 mitsubishi ecplise tcl light is coming on at random times

You were hoping everything would go away

It hasn't been that way for the last 30 years

We have electronic systems on all vehicles

You need an owners manual to study

You need to take an dash light that comes on
after the engine starts seriously, as you may have
a system malfuntion & most do require a repair.

You check for codes as soon as you get a check or mil lamp,
that is a well know thing everyone should be doing

Most people just don't know or care to ,as they depend
on a repairs shop to do whatever

Intermittant starts running crappy and tcl light comes on


When the TCL light is on usually means there's a problem with the traction control, need to have inspected real soon. Could be a speed sensor.

Engin light and TCL light won't switch off. When


TCL means Traction Control, and you turn it on and off with a switch. But you did not tell us make, model, or year, so we can't tell you how to turn it off or on.

After highway driving for 2 hours and stopping for gas the car would initially start and then stall, it would run again until the car cooled for 30 minutes.


Sounds like your coolant level might be low. At highway speed you probably have enough coolant and with the air passing thru the radiator keeps the temp down, but at idle not so much. Or depending whether you have a belt drive or electric fan. Belt driven, could need a new belt.

What does the tcl dash light on a 2002 mitsubishi gallant ls mean


tcl is traction control. Google eclipse tcl and you will find your answer. Sounds like it is a common problem with the MAP sensor when people put on aftermarket air intakes.
