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.

Sounds like the car is stuck in fail safe mode, most likely a problem with your eltronic throttle body or possibly airflow meter.

Testimonial: "ive already changed the throttle body and also the abs pump yesterday and its still the same! do you think its the airflow meter then?"

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.

350z 2002. Eng light, TCS and SLIP light comes on no apparent reason. Car running normally.


Take it to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer ! Because if you knew anything , with the engine light on an TCS ,you would know DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are set . You need to have a factory scan tool hooked up !

Tcs light flashes and p0340 code


P0340 code means "Something" is wrong in the timing...
from CMP (Camshaft Position sensor) to the crankshaft bolt.

Very first thing, verify connectors are clean and shiny.
clear all codes, even hard codes.

TCS OFF Slip


probably a wheel speed sensor has kicked the bucket, which is why the tcs light came on , have to check your ABS system to see if its functional.

How do you reset tcs/slip light on a 1999 infinit q45


Hi there:

Pull the codes to get started. Normla process is when the slip light will flash on and then go off. TCS is your Traction Control System. It is normal for it to go off If the rear wheels are slipping. You may have worn tires or you are driving on ice or snow. Are you on a slippery surface when this happens? You can always shut the system down by pressing the TCS off button in the center console.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Why the tcs ligth turn on when i acelerate the car in over drive?


If you are accelerating the car fast enough to cause wheel slip, the Traction Control System (TCS) is kicking in to keep you from spinning out and the light is simply telling you that the TCS is taking control. This is normal operation as long as the light goes out as soon as the conditions for wheel slippage have subsided. (Heavy acceleration, wet pavement, ice and snow, etc.)

Service engine soon, TCS off, SLIP


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.
