SOURCE: run flat tyre warning light is on i have checked tyre pressure

This will only come on when a tyre has dropped in pressure (not spare). It work on the principle that a tyre with less air has a smaller rolling circumference and therefore a different wheel speed. This is then monitored against other signals from other wheels and determined that a loss in pressure has occured.

If all tyre pressures seem ok, there could be a chance of a small unoticeable leak and would require a bath test. This is when the tyre is dipped in water and bubbles would appear where the puncture is.

Ultimately the system may just need to be reset, or has incorrectly been reset from a tyre change. For this you just press and hold the TPC button (located on the centre console above the gearstick - looks like a flat tyre with an exclamation) turn on the ignition to position 2 and the light will come on re then yellow,go out, come back on yellow. When it comes back on yellow it re-initializing the system. You can let go of the button and after 20 odd seconds the light will go out for the final time, completing the reset.

If the light continues to come on after the reset then you definitely have a puncture somewhere!

Hope this helps!

I just purchased a 2005 hyundai xg350L. The tcs light is on and won't shut off. That is the only one illuminated. Could this be a fuse or something much worse.


Hi Christine,

The TCS (traction control system) will stay lit only if there was a malfunction of that system. TCS helps your tires maintain traction on slippery wet or icy roads. The malfunction is usually due to damaged or malfunctioning wheel speed sensors due to corrosion or damage of the sensor wire harness during suspension repairs or brake pad replacement. You can still drive the car, but the traction control system will not help you if your vehicle's tire slips or spins faster than the other.

PRE-DIAGNOSTIC INSPECTIONBefore diagnosing ABS/TCS, perform a comprehensive visual inspection of system as follows.Check ABS/TCS wiring harness connectors for looseness. Check harness routing; pay particular attention to wheel speed sensor wiring harness routing. Check fuses No. 1D, 5B and 6B in instrument panel fuse block. Check fuses No. 1 and 2 in underhood fuse block. Check brake fluid level in master cylinder reservoir. Check brake fluid level in Pressure Modulator Valve (PMV) assembly reservoir. Ensure parking brake is fully released. Ensure parking brake switch is functioning properly. Always perform ABS/TCS system functional check before using DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHARTSThe EBCM/EBTCM has self-diagnostic capability, which can detect system failures. Fault codes stored by EBCM/EBTCM can be displayed using Tech 1 scan tester. There are no provisions for flash code diagnostics.Begin ABS/TCS diagnosis with PRE-DIAGNOSTIC INSPECTION procedure. If failures are found during pre-diagnostic inspection, perform necessary repairs, and proceed with ABS/TCS FUNCTIONAL CHECK. See Fig. 5 .If no failures are found during pre-diagnostic inspection, go to ABS/TCS FUNCTIONAL CHECK. See Fig. 5 . The ABS/TCS FUNCTIONAL CHECK will either indicate ABS/TCS is functioning properly or direct technician to various diagnostic procedures such as diagnostic charts, symptom diagnosis or BRAKE warning light diagnosis.CHART D - TRACTION OFF WARNING LIGHT ON CONTINUOUSLY & NO DTC SET (BUICK WITH UH8 OR U2A INSTRUMENT CLUSTER)Circuit DescriptionWhen ignition switch is first turned to RUN position, EBTCM goes through a self-test, which lasts 2-4 seconds. During self-test, EBTCM commands TRACTION OFF indicator warning light on. Powertrain Control Module (PCM) can also command EBTCM to set a Code 75 which will illuminate TRACTION OFF indicator.Traction control switch is located either on instrument panel center trim plate or driver's front door trim panel. Switch allows driver to select traction control mode (on/off). When traction control system is turned off, TRACTION OFF warning light comes on.EBTCM monitors transaxle temperature through

Steering wheel light is on after battery went dead (along with traction control).


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

TCS light and Brake light stay on.


The main reason the TCS light is on is because there is a problem with the main brake system. The traction control system uses the hydraulic brakes to help keep the car on the road in a skid or other event.
If the main brake system is faulty, the TCS can't do its job.
The hydraulic brake system may be working fine in your case, but the TCS does not know that.
I wonder if that low fluid switch can be bought separately ??

Acura 3.2TL: Brought my 2003 3.2 TL in for an oil change it wasworking fine prior now my TCS light and engine light is on


If it happened right after the oil change, I would take it back there first.
Even if they can't fix it, they need to know about it if you have it fixed somewhere else. They might be on the hook for the repairs.
They could have left something unplugged which would turn on the check engine light. The traction control is affected by the engine performance.

Why the tcs ligth turn on when i acelerate the car in over drive?


If you are accelerating the car fast enough to cause wheel slip, the Traction Control System (TCS) is kicking in to keep you from spinning out and the light is simply telling you that the TCS is taking control. This is normal operation as long as the light goes out as soon as the conditions for wheel slippage have subsided. (Heavy acceleration, wet pavement, ice and snow, etc.)

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.
