The traction control feature is malfuntioning and telling the engine not to rev up. It can most likely be one or both of the rear wheel speed sensor failed.

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

Why is my traction light coming on and off in my 2003 ford mustang


Could be a bad wheel sensor. Traction comes on when the ABS sees one wheel turning faster than the other. Usually this happens when a bearing is start to go out. If you hear a noise while turning, like a low hum. It would be a bearing. Turning left and hear the noise would be the right bearing. Because you are putting more pressure on it.

2003 mustang when traction control light comes on the car lose power almost like shutting down, when it goes off it pick up speed.


The traction control system DOES cut your engine power when the tires spin. That is by design. The system cuts engine power to stop the wheels spinning and restores power once the wheels regain traction. It feels odd when the tires spin and power cuts out. It's good practice to lift off the accelerator when the system kicks in. Otherwise, if you are on gravel or slick streets the tires may spin, stop when traction control kicks in, and then spin again when power is restored. It is not an "elegant" solution but it does work for the most part.

Service Traction System Light


Remove any and all abs fuses for ten minutes then put them back. I think that will work. It will not reset if battery is disconected so it will keep memory of problems. In case battery is unhooked.

I have a mustang gt 03 and i have problem with my abs and traction control. the light just turn on when ever they want. what it this mean????


when these lights (ABS and TC or same system) come on it means that a problem has been found in one of the parts of the two systems and the ABS and the Traction control have been diabled by the control modual, this system needs to be tested by the dealer to determine what fault code is present in the memeory of the systmes control modual that explains the light comming on.

My traction control button stays on


There is a fault in the system and it should be brought to a qualified technician for diagnostics. It could be anything from a simple fuse to a more serious defect of the traction control system. The only way to find out is to connect it to the appropriate code reader.

I would like to know how much is a posi traction for a 2003 v6 mustang and how much horsepower will i get with it


Limited slip differentials (positraction) are relatively expensive, especially when installing in a vehicle that did not initially come equipped with one. V6 Mustangs do not come with an LSD (limited slip), so it will be expensive. You get 0 horsepower from it; all an LSD does is transfer torque between the wheels to gain more traction during wheelspin and make your car handle better.

Hope this helps,
matt

Abs light on. 2000 mustang gt


One or both rear wheels speed sensors are malfunctioning even they dont show noticeable physical damage. Get a scanner that can display rear wheels speed values and drive the car to see which one is not working correctly.
