Hi there,
you can get a manual at:

I suggest you get the car scanned by the dealer as it might tell you that therer is a fault registered by the computer.
Cheers

2000 Honda Odyssey Engine Light and TCS lights come on at engine start up when its cold out.


TCS is a separate issue from PCM code. I would disconnect the plug from PCM and clean with contact cleaner. Most of the times humidity creates corrosion on the pins.

Tcs light came on with my 2000 honda odyssey,what does that mean?


TCS = Traction Control System

The TCS light is on because the check engine light is on this is common repair the check engine light failure abd the tcs will go back to normal.

You need to check the code to see if it is a trans code and then if it falls under the bulletin limits Honda will replace the trans under warranty. Even if you are out of warranty Honda will sometimes do a partial warranty. Here's a copy of the Bulletin.

There are several things that will turn the check engine light and tcs light on .if you get the code I can tell you exactly what the problem is . on your year i see transmission problems as well as egr problems. if you go to any large auto parts store they will check the code for free or a very small fee.

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

The TCS light came on and the car started jerking especially at stops. The light would go off for a while after restarting the car but the same problems would happen and the light would eventually come...


The TCS stands for Traction Control System, I believe. The TCS is controlled by inputs from the wheel speed sensors. If you have a bad sensor, then a new hub may be required to repair it.

The check engine light may be a sepawrate problem. Have the codes scanned for both the Anti lock braking sytem, TCS, and the check engine light.

Sometimes it will require a separate scanner for the TCS/ABS vs. the Check Engine light.

Good luck on this diagnosis and repair.

My subaru forester flashes TCS light as i am driving it whats the problem


TCS is traction control system. It is a sensor that measures the quality of your traction with the road. If it is flashing, slow down and see if it stops. The problem is sometimes due to a faulty sensor and not the actual traction. J.

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 and check engine light keeps coming on. We have had the code and it was the ERG value. We replaced and lights are still coming on.


You may have more than one code.
You may need a ABS sensor if the TCS light is coming on.
Check the codes again.

Tcs light and engine check light on my 2000 honda odyssey


I had the same code/symptoms a few weeks ago. Dealer did a nice job checking through all the details. Replaced the egr too, but no improvement. Finally found one cylinder not firing correctly (not the same pressure as the other cylinders.) Dealer did a value clean/adjustment, for about $250, and the problem has been gone for about a month now. We are also getting about 15% better mileage.

Hope this helps.
