Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora

1 Answer

Ok bought a used 01 olds aurora and i see a traction control light on dash but there is no tc button on console and the light doesn't come on when i crank up. The manual says it should. Did they all come standard with trac control? also tires balding on outer edge and it seems to shake at high speed and sometimes when sitting at a light. Also just wondering if there are any problems that i can look forward to coming across.

I believe the button is located near shifter.

yes all auroras are fairly loaded vehicles that come with 4 wheel abs standard with traction control.

bulb check with key on should illuminate all bulbs.

high speed vibration likely caused by your tires/ tire wear could be cause by alignment -have it checked. while checking alignment they will check steering and suspension compononts and rec any repairs needed.
idle vibration may be normal depending how severe due to age of engine mounts.

my experience with auroras is that they are very high tech high optioned which leads to a chance of falure more often due to more systems. however my opinion is they are VERY nice rides and i think you will enjoy it. keep in mind vehicle is 9 yrs old and expect some expense

New holden cruze orange light with the letters tc on dash what does that mean

Do you have a hand book for the vehicle this will be explained in more detail. TC = traction control this is to do with your braking sytem. You may have a switch for this normaly down by the gear change or on dash by stearing wheel normaly on right side of stearing wheel. If you locate switch turn it on and off if this either turns light on or off all should be ok turn traction control on and leave it on, if light stays on in either possition of switch take to a holden dealer as there will be an issue. probably a front wheel speed sensor playing up but please get it fixed as it is a very important safety issue. good luck.

Trac light is comin on what does this mean

The car is OK. If you have the traction control (TC) warning pop up it means there is a fault in the traction control system . The traction control on the car will now be disabled.

The most likley cause is a failed or faulty wheel sensor. These are the sensors which detect if a wheel is losing traction and the TC system will apply braking multiple times to slow the wheel speed to retain grip.

It is a good safety feature but you can still drive your car around without the TC system operating. There should be a TC switch on your model to turn the TC on and off manually. When switched off manually, a TC off message should pop up on the dash.

Tc light is on what is that

Hello: TC Means traction control. It would be best to check for symptom codes with a upscale scanner to find out what is causing the code. Make sure there isn't a switch to turn the TC system off. Check above the center console on the center dash panel for the switch, may have TC on it.

Just bought a 97 Aurora and had tires put on front and balanced. Now traction light comes on while driving and RPM goes to 0. After I pull over, it will run fine...What could be the problem?

OK, when the traction light or abs light goes on when driving then it could be a bad wheel speed sensor or traction control module. IF the RPM goes to 0, that may be an engine sensor problem or wiring to the sensor for the crankshaft position sensor or cam sensor.

I was driving and a light on my dash came on that had the letter TC in the middle of the weird picture. I dont have a manual so I have to idea what it means. Once I turned off the car and got back in to...

Hi, the TC stands for traction control, and there is a button that must have been hit, once the cear ignition was recycled, it went back to normal. Use traction control at slippery road conditions, and this will transmit power to the wheels through the abs system, resulting in the best traction. Thanks...Coop

2003 cobalt traction control light on

traction control is controlled by a button on the dash, the only time the TC light comes on is when its shut off, indicating that you do not have traction control. try locating the button and pushing it and see if that fixes the problem, if not there is something wrong in the tc circuit (such as a wheel speed sensor) and would need further diagnosis.

How do i shut off the traction control in my 2001 BMW 3-series coupe when there is no switch on the dash?

To turn off the traction control, you need to press and hold the traction control button. Normally this is located on the centre console above the gearstick and you should have one of the following;

finally a button with an exclamation inside a triangle with an arrow on the outside in a clockwise direction. You'll have one of these 4 buttons.

Simply pressing it once will partially turn it off - (depending if its dsc, if not dsc but asc then the system will be turned off)

If you press and hold however, the system will be fully turned off and a warning light will appear on the dash. Again this all depends on the system you have and if you need to press and hold until the light comes on the instrument cluster,or just to press once!

Hope this helps!
