Very new car, take to dealer.

If they are related, could be that the one of the sensors in the traction control failed.

Alternatively, take to autozone or other auto parts place to have them run the service code.

Abs light came on


What it looks like: The traction control warning light typically takes the form of the acronym "TC." Sometimes this light is a small illuminated picture of a car losing control What it looks like: The traction control warning light typically takes the form of the acronym "TC." Sometimes this light is a small illuminated picture of a car losing control. How this system works: Traction control uses wheel speed sensors to detect when one or more of the car's wheels lose grip and traction. When the system registers a loss of traction in one or more of the wheels, a computer will limit power to the wheels that are still in solid contact with the road to prevent a skid. Common reasons for this to happen:
  • ABS is malfunctioning: Traction control and ABS (anti-lock braking system) often share the same control module and internal self-diagnostics system. As a result, sometimes an issue in the ABS can trigger the traction control light. If this is the case, then both the ABS and Traction Control lights will be on.
  • Broken wheel speed sensors: Wheel speed sensors are usually in the wheel bearing assembly, and determine the rate at which each wheel is moving. The sensors relay that information to the traction control module, which determines whether or not power needs to be shifted. Wheel speed sensors can get dirty or damaged and stop working, which prohibits the traction control module from knowing when to enable the system.Traction control module is faulty: The traction control module - which, again, is often shared with the ABS - can malfunction and break altogether, causing the system to stop working. What to expect: A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of the traction control issue, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs. How important is this service? It's important to have the traction control issue investigated as soon as possible, as adverse driving conditions can arise at any time. While your car is unlikely to incur further damage from a faulty traction control system, it won't be safe to drive in rain, snow, sleet, or other inclement weather, or even possibly through pools of water on the road. Furthermore, the issue that is causing the traction control light to illuminate could also be impacting the ABS.

Cruise control Does Not Work, Service Electrical System always comes on, Traction Control Light comes On


make sure 3rd brake light works, most likely you have a code in the EBCM (antilock brakes), some codes disable the cruise control, possible vehicle or output speed sensor or wheel speed sensor.

Service traction control light


The light has to be on when it is checked. Also it could be something as simple as tire pressure that is causing this.

When the Traction Control Service light comes on how do I service it?


What you need top do is get the codes from the traction control module.Once you get those then we can look up what code it is then you can begin to diagnose the problem.Is there also an A.B.S.code?If there is then you need to get the codes for that also.Usually when the abs light comes on the traction control light will also come on.Even if you have the codes cleared and don`t fix anything the light will come back on.That is the only way to service the vehicle.If you just start replacing parts it could get very costly and then you still haven`t fixed the problem.Get back to me with the codes and I`ll be happy to help you out in any way possible.good luck.

Hi,the traction control light coming up means there is a fault detected in the system and a scan tool will be required to learn what fault has been detected. Possible steering angle sensor, wheel speed sensor or brake pressure sensor since the light comes up when making turns or when backing up. Faults are to be checked and proper diagnostic procedures carried out before parts replacement remedies.....
