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.

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.

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
