SOURCE: TCS, SLIP and ABS lights on

Check your brake fluid first. If that is low, top it off and recheck. If its ok, than you will need one of the rear ABS sensors. You will need to plug it in and find out which side it is. That's really the only ABS issue that car has. One of the rear ABS sensors fails.

Tell your machanic to check the wheel speed sensor. You might end up changing a bearing or just living with the lights on.

A problem wthi the ABS system may cause both lights to come on. If it goes on and off you may have a wheel speed sensor that is acting up

Abs light stays on and the esc indicator light also but when you start it it shows it off


the operators guide shows what these mean and what to do.
lost that>? i have one, and 08 JK.
pages 105 to 116
it resets each drive. the opr guide says that, and does.
its a very complex system, you should RTM.

ill quote your missing pages.
ABS:
If the light remains on after start-up or comes on and
stays on at road speeds, it may indicate that the ABS has
detected a malfunction or has become inoperative. The
system reverts to standard non-anti-lock brakes.
ESP:/TCS
The ESP/TCS Indicator Light (located in the instrument
cluster), starts to flash as soon as the tires lose traction
and the ESP system becomes active. The ESP/TCS Indicator
Light also flashes when TCS is active. If the
ESP/TCS Indicator Light begins to flash during acceleration,
ease up on the accelerator and apply as little throttle
as possible. Be sure to adapt your speed and driving to
the prevailing road conditions


is this clear? if not ask more, questions , more specific and we can peel the onion deep as you want.

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Abs & TCS-off dash lights both stay on. Pushing the TCS off switch does not help. "seem" to stop fine. Emergency brake seems to be fully off, not dragging. My wife encountered a patch of ice...


Hello: If there is a problem in the ABS it will bring on the tcs light as well. To determine what is causing the problem you need to have the ABS checked with a scanner to get the code. Then trouble shoot the components that the code leads you to. Normal braking is available with the light on but TCS is not as it relies on ABS for functioning the TCS.

Is it still safe to use the car when the tcs and abs warning lights is on?wht is the main purpose of these two?does it makes any damage in the brake system?what is the temporary solutions on these?tried...


the TCS is traction control system and the ABS is anti-lock brake system, best guess is that you have a bad wheel speed sensor, you can drive it but if you get in a spot were you need either system like ice or snow as long as the lights are on the systems will not work, but it will not hurt anything the car just wont be as good as it could be on slick pavement.

About a week ago, having switched on and set off, all the brake warning lights stayed on, that is the ABS, TCS, TCS OFF and Brake System Warning lights. The brakes continued to work OK with no extra travel...


abs=anti-lock brake system/ tcs=traction control system ==sounds like you have a problem with ur abs possible bad sensor or a wiring connection problem when abs shuts down [trouble light] your brakes will work normal but if u stomp or brake hard the brakes will lock up skid and the tcs doesnt affect brakes but if u accelerate hard tires will spin lose traction check the wiring and connections to the sensors sometimes debris hits the wire and loosens the connection if looks ok and light is on have car scanned for the trouble code most auto stores such as auto zone/advanced auto offer this service for free the code will what and where the problem is so repair can be made

My TCS indicator light comes on and stays on


some markets have a button on the dash with tcs/abs and a dash light saying "tcs off".if your car has not got the button then you cant turn it off(germany yes.uk no)abs/tcs should only be turned off in deep snow,otherwise best left alone,unless you have been taught how to drive with/without.....(on ice you wants the wheels to turn,on snow you want the snow to wedge to slow you down......)see what i mean???

TCS light on


The TCS (Traction Control System) indicator comes on or flashes under the following conditions:

When you turn the ignition switch
to ON (II).

When you manually turn off the
TCS.

It flashes when the TCS is
regulating wheelspin.

If the system's diagnostics senses
a problem in the TCS, the indicator
will come on and stay on.

If the brakes overheat, the
indicator will come on.

If the TCS indicator comes on and stays on for more than 10 minutes while driving, pull to the side of the road when it is safe and turn off the engine. Reset the system by restarting the engine, and watch the TCS indicator. If the indicator remains on, or comes back on while driving, have the system inspected by your Honda dealer. You can still drive the vehicle without TCS.

This indicator will come on along with the ABS indicator if there is a problem in the anti-lock brake system.
The TCS indicator may occasionally come on for one or two seconds and then go out. This is normal.

Hope this helps you figure it out.
