You have a turbo hose or vacuum hose leak, you need to trace that down..Any intake leaks will cause the traction/check engine lights to light up.

My 2008 Equinox's traction control light came on the other day, by itself and said it needed to be serviced. In 2 days, it left. Yesterday, during snow, I pressed it on, and the car started to jump a...


The traction control light usually goes on when a wheel speed sensor is not sending valid speed signals to the traction control module, or the module itself is bad.

Modules can cost hundreds of dollars, or the wheel hub assemblies replaced to rectify a basd wheel speed sensor can also cost in the hundreds of dollars, unfortunately.

If it jumps a little in the snow, and the traction control light was off (indicating it was working correctly at the time), I wouldn't worry too much about it, as the traction control may be working properly at that time.

Was the jumping alarming making the car 'buck?'

The wheels may have been getting traction intermittently by hitting gravel or the road that didn't have snow and ice on it. This is normal.

However, if the bucking continues, I would have it checked out at the dealer if feasible.

Hope this helps and good luck on this repair.

well then with the motor warm check the trans fluid level, seems like it may be low or a clogged filter may also cause that, also a torque convertor starting to fail may be to blame. Also the cat. convertor being plugged can cause this issue.. bad wires, dirty air filter, mass air sensor could be dirty, many things come to mind

Check engine light and TC light came on and car lost engine. Still had power steering and brakes. Have attempted to restart but will not. Any ideas?


I am more familiar with Ford products. If you have a cutoff for the traction control on your dash you want to remove a battery cable to get the Engine light to clear.

Reattach the cable after 10 minutes and turn off the traction control. Then try starting the car. If that does not work disconnect the fuse to the traction control and then try starting again.

All the traction devices interrupt the engines as part of stopping the wheels from spinning. The Traction Control on yours is stuck. If you can eliminate that feature you may get your engine to run again.

2005 Toyota Highlander check engine, track off and vsc light on, what is the problem


there are literally hundreds of codes that would turn on the check engine light. the track off and vsc lights come on together, indicating a problem with the traction control system. again, many different items will turn these lights on. the only way to narrow it down is to hook it up to an OBD-II diagnostic tool and find out all the codes that are listed. if you don't have one, take it to a shop
