SOURCE: TCS/SLIP & Check Engine Light Warning

TCS is Traction Control System,and all TCS's are controlled though the Anti Lock Braking (ABS) system.Here's how it works:Each wheel,or in some cases,only the drive wheels have a speed sensor mounted near the hub or axle,and sends a speed signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module).The PCM monitors wheel speed continuously,and if it sees a speed out of the ordinary,say for example the right rear tire is spinning and traveling at a much higher speed than the left rear,the PCM will pulse the brakes through the ABS system on the right rear to slow down the right rear so that the left and right wheel speeds match up,this is how the traction control works.So,if you have a TCS problem,the PCM will see this and set a Dignostic Trouble Code (DTC).You need to pull the DTC's out of the system with a scan tool,diagnose and repair the DTC's.It could likely be something as simple as a malfunctioning wheel speed sensor,but you won't know until the codes are pulled out,as this will point in the general direction.Good luck.

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.

this could be a damaged sensor issue, return the vehicle where you had it serviced with your complaint.

The oil change wouldn't cause this problem. Just in-case, check the engine oil level.

There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Best way to find out what's going on is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means. Most auto-part store will do this for free.

Go to auto parts store and have it checked for free. They will give you codes and meaning. It is often something minor like a new gas cap.

Just replaced valve covers on Nissan Maxima 2002 due to misfire. Now it smokes and burns oil every start? What's should I do .


If is is only smoking when you first start it up. Most likely the valve guide seals, oil is leaking into the cylinders and smoking when you start it up.

My 2002 maxima has the abs, slip., and tcs lights on and they stay on


could be a bad abs sensor on one of the wheels, or it just might be covered with alot of dirt, unable to get a good reading. Also if you replaced anything suspension, breaks, or axle related recently, someone might have messed up the wiring

As for trouble codes, and the dealers recommendation. They are true and accurate, although I would get a second opinion from another auto shop other than the dealer. Do not disclose what you already know other than the problems you are expriencing.

TCS and SLIP are part of the ABS system. Check the fluid level in master cylinder first. If that's OK, than you probably have a intermitent problem with one of the ABS sensors.You will need a scanner to find out which sensor in mulfunctioning, or wht the problem is. As far as the shaking condition goes, sounds like the car is misfiring. What is the code number that you are coming up with for the check engine light?? Have the spark plugs been replaced?? Replacement intarval on a 2002 Max is 105000 miles. These car seem to have a problem with the rocker cover gaskets, where iol leaks into the spark plug hole and fill the hole up, so you may need that cover, when you are replacing the plugs, but you will not know that, until you actually get inside of it. Let me know what the code is for the "check engine light" post results.

Removed the positve and negative charge of battery for 10 minutes then, plug it back the positive first then negative charge and the last step you do is to start the engine. This steps is to clear tcs off, slip and awd lights.
