What does a red circle with a red triangle an ! Inside triangle mean on a 2004 audi


Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP)

The light will flash if you are driving and the traction control system is activated (it detects wheel slip on ice, water, etc.). This just tells you it is actively working. You should adjust your driving to the current road conditions to prevent loss of control.

If it stays on continuously, the traction control system (ESP) is off, or there is a problem with the ESP system. Usually, the ABS light will also illuminate if the ESP light is on due to a fault.

When i move the car at a point VDC off and slip comes up and the vehicle shuts down, when i start back the engine starts and the signs remain, what could be the solotion to this?


If the vehicle is on a slippery surface, then you are basically describing normal traction control system operation. This system will halt spark to the plugs so that the engine can no longer power the wheels and cause them to slip. Engine performance will pick up again once the wheels find traction.

Is this what you are describing? Not all vehicle traction control systems can be shut off 100%, even when the switch is set to off.

Does this issue occur on all road surfaces and conditions?

What does the ESC light on my Hyundai entourage mean? what does the acronym even stand for?


Your owner's manual says = Electronic Stability Control. Optimum driving safety now has a name : ESC, the Electronic Stability Control. ESC recognizes critical driving conditions, such as panic reactions in dangerous situations, and stabilizes the vehicle by wheel-individual braking and engine control intervention with no needfor actuating the brake or the gas pedal. ESC adds a further function known as Active Yaw Control (AYC) to the ABS, TCS, EBD and ESC functions. Whereas the ABS/TCS function controls wheel slip during braking and acceleration and, thus, mainly intervenes in the longitudinal dynamics of the vehicle, active yaw control stabilizes the vehicle about its vertical axis. This is achieved by wheel individual brake intervention and adaptation of the momentary engine torque with no need for any action to be taken by the driver. ESC essentially consists of three assemblies : the sensors, the electronic control unit and the actuators. Of course, the stability control feature works under all driving and operating conditions. Under certain driving conditions, the ABS/TCS function can be activated simultaneously with the ESC function in response to a command by the driver. In the event of a failure of the stability control function, the basic safety function, ABS, is still maintained.

Code p0734 I just replaced eng. and trans. now have this code.


Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit Tech notes Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary. When is the code detected? P0734 is detected when A/T cannot be shifted to the 4th gear position even if electrical circuit is good. P0734 NISSAN Description This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (4th) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

I have a 02 Cavalier that when your driving the Trac off light comes on when the light is on it runs rough and shifts hard but if i put it in park turn it off and restart it it's fine


There is a malfunction in you antilock brake/traction control system. When the TRAC light is on, the computer is trying to tell you either 1. That the traction control is active and is controlling your brakes, engine and transmission to stop a wheel skid, or 2. There is is a malfunction in your traction control system.

In the first case above, the TRAC light will only be on for a few seconds until the conditions causing your wheels to slip no longer exist. If the light is staying on even though there is no way your wheels are slipping or skidding, then this is a malfunction. You must scan both your Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and your Antilock Brake System (ABS) module to properly diagnose a problem with this system.

My came with a code po734 is that a big problem?


DTC P0734 - Improper Ratio for Fourth Gear.
P0734 is detected when A/T cannot be shifted to the 4th gear position even if electrical circuit is good.

This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (4th) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

Tech notes: Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary.

ABS and service traction light came on while coming to a stop on an icy road.


This is probably normal as on ice or snow your wheels will slip and both the traction control and ABS will activate. Does your brake pedal vibrate a bit. It also means you are probably going to fast for road conditions

The TCS<ABS> warning light on my Hyundai


If you are driving in slick conditions on snow and ice or on wet pavement, this could be NORMAL OPERATION. The lights are coming on to let you know that the Traction Control System (TCS) and the Antilock Brake System (ABS) is actively correcting a wheel slip condition.

If this is happening on dry pavement, and you are not driving like a maniac, (making the wheels slip and slide) then there is possibly a problem with one of your wheel speed sensors that is making your TCS and ABS computers "think" that there is a wheel slipping. You will have to scan your computer system and watch the wheel speed sensor data to find out which one is malfunctioning.

Abs and trac active dash lights are on


If they are coming on momentarily when you are driving in slick conditions this is normal operation. If they are staying on all the time, even when you are driving on dry pavement. there is a broblem with your Antilock Brake and Traction Control system. A very common problem is a wheel speed sensor that is malfunctioning. Your vehicle is equipped with 4 wheel speed sensors. You will have to access the data in the Antilock Brake Control Module to find out which one it is.

Stibilatrak light comes on and I lose power..


the stabilitrac system will turn the light on when its activated. Driving in wet/snowy roads will cause one or more wheel to spin as it slips on wet roads, this condition is normal.
I'm sure once your on flat even road without the possibility of your drice wheels to spin the light will turn off on its own.
