Question about Mazda Millenia

1 Answer

Hello! I have a 1996 Mazda Millenia with 133,000miles on it. Just recently the ABS Light and the TCS OFF light has been coming on and off randomly(no blinking, just illuminated). I've done a bit of research and noticed that a few sites are saying that the TCS OFF may be due to a cracked vacuum hose. Can you please help me out with these two issues? Thanks, Letta 310-845-5671

When both of these lights are on, I always suspect the wheel speed sensors.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6003525-abs_traction_control_lights . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

ABS light come on when i am towing


the tcs system is detecting the weight and sway of the trailer because the load on the hitch is too much- that's the simple answer.

The ABS and TCS work together - the ABS system is what detects wheel spin and tell the TCS which diverts and/or control power.

Tcs off what does that mean


TCS is the traction control system the light is the fault presnet indicator. You must have the dealer scan the system for fault codes to see what is causing this light to stay on.

How do you clean an idler control valve on a mazda millenia


Removing the idle air control solenoid and pintle assembly and clean it? Sometimes carbon or gunk can cause the pintle to not seat all the way in the bore and cause a high idle condition. You should also clean the throttle bore and make sure that the throttle blade contacts it's stop. If you notice that the throttle blade isn't contacting it's stop you might have carbon holding the blade open or the throttle cable isn't adjusted properly. NOTE:Use carb cleaner

Also inspect for vacuum leaks. Vacuum leaks after the throttle blade will cause a high idle and lean condition.

I would do those things first before condemning the whole IAC assembly

This then reason your TCS light is on> This indicates a problem with the abs system.You will have to have the abs computer scanned to determine where the problem is.I suggest contacting the dealer and let them know what is going on,they will only find the problem if the light is on.This way you may be able to set it up with them so you can just stop by with the light on and have it scanned.Make sure you son't shut the car off when you get there!Hope this helps! Thanks
