If your truck has a button for traction control you can push it to turn it off. The problem may be a lack of proper air flow. Any auto parts store can seel you a K&N Air Filter to help increase your overall horse power.

I loose power when traction control light comes on in my 2002 mustange gt


With some makes and models this is normal. The PCM will reduce engine power when the traction control senses wheel slip as a safety precaution until traction is restored

My ford fusion has ABS but does not h as 've traction control. Can I have an expert add traction control?


ABS is a braking system that pulses your brakes on and off for you automatically. Traction control is controlled by your engine's computer. When your drive wheel begins to spin due to loss of traction, the "traction control", if turned on, prevents your drive wheel from spinning too fast, which could cause you to lose control. Anyway, to answer your question, to my knowledge there is no easy way to add this accessory to your car.

What does traction off means


Traction control helps by controlling the engine power to the drive wheels to prevent wheel spin. When traction control is OFF then you can apply all power to the drive wheels and it could cause loss of control and or wheel spin.

How do i repair the vsa unit on a 2006 honda accord?


I found this online. replacing the EGR valve would be a good thing to check as a VSA repair would be really expensive, it doesn't make sense that these should go bad, and it does not seem like it is something you can do yourself.
answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=2009040118264G
'This is going to sound funny, but your problem is not with the VSA. Here's what the dealer is missing in their diagnosis.

the way the Vehicle Stability Assist system works is that when a loss of traction is sensed (when one wheel is spinning faster than the other) then the control for the VSA starts to cut out engine cylinders to reduce the power to the wheel until traction is restored. When the control unit enables the VSA the exclamation point icon comes on and it will stay on until the engine is turned off.

Now for the twist--when the engine has a misfire that causes the engine to lose power then the VSA system "thinks" power is being reduced to restore traction and it puts the exclamation point icon on. So in essence, the VSA is being fooled into thinking that the system is enabled when in reality the problem is one of a reduction of engine power.

I have seen this numerous times on the Accords and Pilots. Almost always the problem is with the EGR valve. That doesn't mean that it is in your case, but my experience is that it usually is. Couple that with the history of EGR valve problems on the Honda V-6 and the the odds are strong that's what your problem is. However, anything that could cause a loss of power or misfire in an engine, such as an ignition coil breaking down or bad fuel could cause this problem.

In most States the things that can cause this problem are covered under a 3 year 50000 mile emissions warranty. I'd ask the dealer to do the diagnosis for an engine misfire and see where that goes.'

98 mazda millenia traction control keeps turning on and the engine cuts off randomly


The traction control system senses wheel spin from either drive wheel. Excessive spin sensed by the ABS sensor will force the wheel that is spinning to brake to avoid loss of traction. You could have a faulty ABS sensor (wheel speed sensor) As far as the engine "cutting off" Do you mean that it shuts off completely or you cannot accelerate?

Trac light blinks an i hear a clicking noise in my 2001 toyota 4runner 2wd when im goin thru mud. it also has no throttle response when this happens.


that is traction control. most vehicles with traction control use a combination of brakes/throtle control and transmission upshifting to control traction. in other words, your car computer senses wheel spin and then overides you to make the car regain traction. most cars that feature traction control also have a button to turn traction control on and off manually.

My lexus just quit working, it will crank but die when you put it in gear, the check engine light came on with a code of VSC any ideas. Thanks.


Saw this on a Lexus user club site ---
  • Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) senses the onset of loss of lateral traction and helps the driver stay on track. Input from four wheel-speed sensors, a yaw-rate (directional) sensor, a deceleration sensor, and a steering-wheel-angle sensor is communicated to the VSC computer. The system has the ability to reduce power and to control the brake actuator. Working with both ABS and TRAC, the VSC system helps the driver to compensate for loss of lateral traction, which can cause skids and loss of vehicle control. Lexus Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control.
However, it appears Lexus owners who have reported this sort of problem did not have to do anything to fix except - things like .. uncap gas cap and put it back, remove battery leads for about 10 minutes and put back, tighten air filter hose ...all wierd.

Have you checked your owner's manual ?
