My traction control comes on when driving


If it comes on occasiionally, you obviously are driving on some slick surface. When it senses the slip, it automatically engages the traction control.

Even minor slippage will engage the traction control, like turning a corner, and one wheel slipps a little. If the light is constantly on, you have hit the switch for the Traction Control.

so get all the codes first.
write them down, so when the battery dies, you dont need to beg for codes no one can give ,cept the dealer.

tc stands for traction control . with car started and foot on brake open glove box and push the tc button. I believe it should engage/disengage this feature but im no expert so refer to owners manual first, I think it acts kinda like a mock transfer case?

What is the T/C button for in the glove box of a 2003 CTS cadillac?


This button is for the traction control, when you push it it will say trac off or trac on . this will be displayed on the dash, this is for better traction on snow or wet roads and it keeps the wheels from spinning out,hope this helps, look in your manual under traction control, good luck.

Traction conrol abs


Try seeing if any of the codes are set off. On your climate control section with the ignition on hold the off and warmer button and the display will cycle through the codes. Could be a wheel sensor I had a c1225 LF sensor. Could also be a problem with the Wheel speed sensor harness see TSB# 0005-25-003. When I called my dealer about this TSB they didn't know anything about it. If you shut off the car and disengage the traction control, in the glove box, do the codes go away?

Good luck

Transmission Traction "Off" light stays lit with Traction button


The traction control system is controlled through the Anti-lock brake system. The way it works is if one of your wheels starts spinning the ABS applys the brake to that wheel to transfer power to the oppsite wheel that is getting traction. If your ABS is bad then your Traction control won't work. To check it I would find a parking lot on a wet day. In an open space mash in the gas. if you hear the ABS system kick in and you don't squall the tires then your good. My guess is you won't. What I would be worried about is will my ABS work. When checking the traction control is a good time to check the ABS. Acclerate to around 15 mph, then mash the brake as your live depended on it. If you hear a motor run and feel a vibration or grind in the brake peddal, then it works.

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
