Hi don't no if its traction control prob but on my A-class 160 2000 when i'm driving my steering goes very stiff and it makes it hard to turn can no lights come on it just does it pls can you help. toni.


Traction control does not make steering go stiff, it works via the ABS sensors and engine control unit. Depending on how often this fault occurs it could simply be a slipping drive belt which turns the power steering pump when under pressure

Abs trac control light goes on at start up then off


It sounds like an ABS sensor or some other sensor going out. IF it's the main computer for the traction/handling system that's big $$$$$ like $1300+ I think.
This problem frequently starts out as occasional, goes to frequent, and then full time.  It usually relates to the ABS/TC assembly on the frame in front of the engine. 
It is made of two parts, the EBTCM (the electronic part) wich is bolted to the mechanical half, the BPMV (Brake pressure modulating valve.) Sometimes the electronic grounds for this assembly get corroded or loose. Bad connectors for the ABS speed sensors at each wheel hub can also go bad.

EBTCM = Electronic Brake Traction Control Module
Good luck and hope this helps.

Traction control light stays on


If you're not getting an OBD (on board diagnostic) code, and it is constantly flashing, then the system needs to be calibrated at the dealer. This occurs when you replace or disconnect/reconnect a component of the traction control system, i.e., the sensors (shared with the ABS system), to the steering wheel position sensor, or the yaw sensors, etc. If you have it calibrated and it comes back on, you've got a poor connection at one of the components. The prime suspect here is the clock spring in the steering wheel, aka "sliding contact" in the steering column behind the steering wheel. This provides power to everything in the steering wheel, inccluding the steering wheel position sensor. When this goes bad, it is tantamount to disconnecting and/or reconnecting the steering wheel position sensor. Fords are famous for sliding contact failure. Usually, you'll also have other issues with steering wheel components, such as the horn, cruise control, radio volume, air bag ("high resistence" OBD code), etc.
