Question about 2004 Honda Accord

My TCS indicator light comes on and stays on

My TCS indicator light (exclamation point inside a triangle) comes on and stays on randomly when I start my 2004 Honda Accord. It's happened three times in the last six weeks. When I turn the ignition off and restart it doesn't remain on. The owners manual says that light could be telling you that you've turned off the TCS. If I turned it off I have no idea how. Where is the TCS so I can check to see if I've turned it off?

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

I have a 1995 Mercedes e-220 with a indicator light on. It is a exclamation point. What does it indicate?


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)

Exclamation point warning light came on...what


A yellow explanation point symbol on the dashboard typically applies to the Tire Pressure Monitoring system. A thick ! inside a half drawn flat tire symbol to be complete and comes in yellow color when lit. Under normal vehicle set-up, if this indicator stays lit after the power-on selftest, you need to check your tires for any uneven pressures and adjust their pressures to correct specifications. Okay? : )

A red exclamation point inside a circle when lit indicates your parking brake is on, or your brake fluid level is low.

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.

2006 Honda crv, vsa, abs, and triangle light are permanently on


You are talking about the VSA activation indicator (triangle with exclamation point in the middle):
This indicator has three functions:

It comes on as a reminder that you have turned off the vehicle stability assist (VSA) system.

It flashes when VSA is active.

It comes on along with the VSA system indicator (the rectangle with VSA in it) if there is a problem with the VSA system.

This indicator normally comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position, and when the ignition switch is turned to the START (III) position.

Hope this helps you understand the problem.

Wat does the exclamation point in the dashboard mean?


the exclamation point inside a triangle is the VSA activation indicator or Vehicle Stability Assist system indicator. If the indicator stays on, have the VSA checked at the dealer.
