SOURCE: 2008 Scion TC Warning Light

This is already covered in the owner's manual, but here it is again as a quick reference.

Every 5,000 miles, a "Maintenance Required" light will blink for the first couple seconds after you start your car. It will continue to do so until it is reset. If it is not reset, than it will eventually turn on your "Check Engine" light. The purpose of the maintenance required light is to remind TC owners to change their oil. The factory recommended interval is 5,000 miles, but you can reduce the interval the light will come on to a mileage interval of your choice.

1. Before starting, make sure that the odometer is not on one of the trip mileage odometers but is displaying the standard odometer.

2. With the car off, press and hold down the odometer reset button. While still holding it, start the car.

3. The light should continue to blink for a couple seconds and than disappear. That will reset the light for another 5,000 miles.

4. The following are steps to change the interval in which the maintenance required light comes on. Right after you turn on the ignition while holding the reset button, you'll notice that the odometer display will show 5 bars. Each bar corresponds to a 1,000 miles. As each bar disappears, the interval will increase (0 bars = 5k, 1 bar = 4k). Release the reset button at the interval you desire.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 hhr and the abs and tc light is on

Could be a problem with the wheel hub. Had the same problem on a Grand Am. Don't know about the HHR. I had to replace the hub. The vibration from the bad hub causes the ABS sensor to trip. When the ABS light is on, it turns the T/C off.

Why does the engine shut off on 2006 hhr when message engine power reduced displays


Could be something causing the engine to die which is making the warning light come on, or something that the computer sees as a threat of damage to the engine and the computer is shutting down the engine to prevent damage.
You would have the computer scanned for trouble codes and then proceed with troubleshooting the issue.

2006 hhr when it rains water pools in the pasenger side floor also traction control light comes on and off


Under the plastic cowl there is a rubber cover over the blower motor and cabin filter. May have shrank or been installed improperly during mfg. There is a fix available from Chevy. ( a larger cover) Could also be clogged sunroof drains if you have one. As far as TC light goes. It comes on when wheel spin is indicated. Usually if it is wet or snowy outside. If it is coming on randomly, there may be a fault and you should get it checked by the dealer. If this is happening, the check engine light should illuminate at the same time.

Left the keys in the ignition adn had AAA jump it. Now the T/C with a slash through it came on and the light that says low engine power. The car starts really rough and has no power when u drive it. WHats...


T/C light = Traction Control

Could be something going on with a wheel speed sensor. You'll have to have the ABS/TCS controller scanned for any stored trouble codes to see why the controller is turning on the light. The code(s) might help you to determine what part of the system is faulting. You'll have to take it to a shop that has a high end scan tool.

If the TC light is on, chances are there is a trouble code set and stored in the computer. You need to determine what the code is. If you take the car to a nationally recognized parts store, most will scan the computer for free, so there is no money out of pocket for you.


Actron also makes a ABS code checker called BrakeScan. Don't know how good it is, but it might be good for a DIY person.

TC Explanation:

If your vehicle is equipped with the Enhanced Traction System (ETS), this warning light should come on briefly as you start the engine. If the warning light does not come on, then have it fixed so it will be ready to warn you if there is a problem.
If the warning light stays on, or comes on when you are driving, there may be a problem with your Enhanced Traction System and your vehicle may need service. When this warning light is on, the system will not limit wheel spin. Adjust your driving accordingly.
The Enhanced Traction System warning light may come on for the following reasons:
If you turn the system off by moving the shift lever to FIRST (1), the warning light will come on and stay on. To turn the system back on, move the shift lever back to a position other than FIRST (1). The warning light should go off. The warning light will come on when you set your parking brake with the engine running, and it will stay on if your parking brake does not release fully. If the transaxle shift lever is in any position other than FIRST (1) and the warning light stays on after your parking brake is fully released, it means there is a problem with the system. If the traction control system is affected by an engine-related problem, the system will turn off and the warning light will come on. If the Enhanced Traction System warning light comes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the transaxle shift lever is in any position other than FIRST (1), your vehicle needs service.

Transmission problem


Sounds like your transmission light is going out. When the TC light comes on thats your first warning that something is wrong. This happened to us on our 2001 Odyssey in 2007 and Honda replaced the transmission under the 7 year 100000 mile warranty.

2006 Chevrolet HHR LT Problem


After searching around, I found several posts that suggested reseating all the relays and fuses under the hood. After checking, I noticed nearly all of them were not seated well. I pushed them all down and I haven't had the problem since.
