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.
