Question about 1996 Acura TL Series

1 Answer

'99 Acura 3.2TL TCS and Check engine light came on together.

It was raining, not hard but raining. Both lights came on and the used car lot where I purchased the car said it was the EGR valve. The had it blown out and cleared the code. Do you think this is accurate?

    Thank you for your response. The light has not come back on but I haven't driven it in the rain again either. Yes it seems to be running well. It's a solid car for a 1999 edition with 105,000 miles on her. He also said that when he cleared the code it said DTC refer to the owners manual. I don't know what that means but I'm watching the car very closely.

    Has the light come back on? Is it running well...If so, they did something to fix the problem or it would be back!

did you open the glove box and read the Operators guide.
no? it says take it in,
there are good reasons. for that, it takes tools you cant buy to diagnoise it. factory scan tools.

The TCS light came on and the car started jerking especially at stops. The light would go off for a while after restarting the car but the same problems would happen and the light would eventually come...


The TCS stands for Traction Control System, I believe. The TCS is controlled by inputs from the wheel speed sensors. If you have a bad sensor, then a new hub may be required to repair it.

The check engine light may be a sepawrate problem. Have the codes scanned for both the Anti lock braking sytem, TCS, and the check engine light.

Sometimes it will require a separate scanner for the TCS/ABS vs. the Check Engine light.

Good luck on this diagnosis and repair.

The tcs light and the check engine light came on my 99 acura 3.2 tl


On permanently on mine ... I was told to ignore it since it was detecting carbon levels or something to that effect and since it was so old that the light would keep on coming back on unless I changed something else which would be very expensive ... so I chose to live with the light on. (I just hope nothing else happens which would have notified me that something was amiss ;^)
