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.

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).

Hy guys, just bought a saab 900 S. Just wanted to know that when the TCS light says OFF does this mean its OFF or do i have to turn this warning light off for the TCS to be OFF? Please forgive my...


Traction control is on all the time, as soon as you start the car. If you push the button, you are turning it off. In other words, when the light is on , the tcs is off.

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.
