TCS is about the traction control so the car doesn't spin the tires when acelerating the oposite of ABS. You need to have the car diagnosed by an expert.If the car is driving ok with no weird stuff then you can wait a bit, otherwise go to the shop or call a qualifyed mobile mechanic as soon as you can.

    If the temperature is ok, no rae noises and the car drives ok, then no problem Just don't wait too long to get it checked.

What does a yellow triangular light with a symbol inside means


Vehicle Stability Assistance
It works with the brakes to help the car if you start to lose traction in a corner (as an example).
You may have a bad brake switch or a loose wire somewhere. If the light comes on when you start the car and doesn't go out, you should have the car checked.

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.

2000 Honda Odyssey Engine Light and TCS lights come on at engine start up when its cold out.


TCS is a separate issue from PCM code. I would disconnect the plug from PCM and clean with contact cleaner. Most of the times humidity creates corrosion on the pins.

Renault Laguna DCi Dynamique 02 Plate : The yellow light on dashboard turns on when driving - it looks like the glow plug icon - but what does it mean please?


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System, MIL Malfunction Indicator Lamp, CEL Check Engine Light.

1990 volvo 740gl far left corner of dashboard has a yellow light thats on constantly. a diagram of a car with a zigzag road. whats that mean.


Either you have a problem with the TCS (Traction Control System), or the TCS is switched off. Most cars with TCS have a button on the shift or the dash labeled "TCS" or "TCS OFF". Find the button, and press it with the car running in gear. If the light goes out, problem solved.
If you cannot manually disengage TCS (no button), or when you press the TCS button the light flashes, check all your brakes and make sure none are dragging or worn out. Also make sure all your tires are properly inflated and balanced, and none are worn out.
TCS works by controlling your brakes on slippery roads and will dynamically apply the brakes to each wheel in order to prevent a skid, even when your foot is not on the brake pedal. During normal driving, the TCS light is out and will either come on briefly or flash when it is active and preventing your car from going into a skid. When the light is on constantly, the system is disabled- either because it was shut off by the driver pressing the TCS (or TCS OFF) button, or because the system has detected a brake problem and automatically disabled it for safety reasons. Worn or dragging brakes, a tire that is flat or worn, or even a wheel that is badly out of balance will cause the system to disable itself, and a severe wheel alignment problem will also.

Tcs light came on with my 2000 honda odyssey,what does that mean?


TCS = Traction Control System

The TCS light is on because the check engine light is on this is common repair the check engine light failure abd the tcs will go back to normal.

You need to check the code to see if it is a trans code and then if it falls under the bulletin limits Honda will replace the trans under warranty. Even if you are out of warranty Honda will sometimes do a partial warranty. Here's a copy of the Bulletin.

There are several things that will turn the check engine light and tcs light on .if you get the code I can tell you exactly what the problem is . on your year i see transmission problems as well as egr problems. if you go to any large auto parts store they will check the code for free or a very small fee.

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

My honda odyssey 2003 model has aq knock sensor circuit malfunction problem detected by the computer, also the engine light is always on, and the TCS light showing when i am in motion. how do i correct...


The tcs light will come on whenever the engine light is on, this is because the tcs cant operate correctly when engine is not running good so its shut down by the computer, the code if the only code means there a problem with the knock sensor, you will need to check the connection and make sure the wire is good and if it is then you will need to replace the knock sensor, heres a diagram to help you locate the knock sensor good luck, hope this helps,johnjohn2_69.gif

The TCS light came on and the car started jerking especially at stops. The light would go off for a while after restarting the car but the same problems would happen and the light would eventually come...


The TCS stands for Traction Control System, I believe. The TCS is controlled by inputs from the wheel speed sensors. If you have a bad sensor, then a new hub may be required to repair it.

The check engine light may be a sepawrate problem. Have the codes scanned for both the Anti lock braking sytem, TCS, and the check engine light.

Sometimes it will require a separate scanner for the TCS/ABS vs. the Check Engine light.

Good luck on this diagnosis and repair.

Minivan tcs light is on, what is it and what does it mean


It's the " traction control system " that's off line, if you also have the [ Yellow ] Anti-lock Brake System light on, it usually means you have a problem with that system. The Traction control system is tied into that system. You should have the systems scanned.
good luck.

Engine light came on "TCS" Honda Odyssey. What does this mean? Is this a Transmission Control issue?


It is typical of the Odyssey to get carbon build up in the intake.I would think its doubtful it involves the transmission if u have not noticed anything. The brakes can cause the TCS light to come on, as well as many other things. try checking your slave cylinders on your brakes as this could cause the TCS light to come up.
