SOURCE: TCS, SLIP and ABS lights on

Check your brake fluid first. If that is low, top it off and recheck. If its ok, than you will need one of the rear ABS sensors. You will need to plug it in and find out which side it is. That's really the only ABS issue that car has. One of the rear ABS sensors fails.

This wouldn't make the tranny slip. It is making abs kick on when it shouldn't. there is a faulty in the system, most likely abs system causing this. It should be broughten to dealer honestly and I am a mechanic tell you this. It may be bad pump or circuit. I would pull the abs fuse that is in the fuse center under hood most likely. This will prevent abs from locking up on your or quit working on you. Until you get it repaired

The oil change wouldn't cause this problem. Just in-case, check the engine oil level.

There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Best way to find out what's going on is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means. Most auto-part store will do this for free.

SOURCE: battery won't stay charged/car dead after hitting pot hole

If it starts off a jump then no. Your battery has a dead cell in it. Replace the battery and you should be fine.

How do you reset tcs/slip light on a 1999 infinit q45


Hi there:

Pull the codes to get started. Normla process is when the slip light will flash on and then go off. TCS is your Traction Control System. It is normal for it to go off If the rear wheels are slipping. You may have worn tires or you are driving on ice or snow. Are you on a slippery surface when this happens? You can always shut the system down by pressing the TCS off button in the center console.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

i think you just have a bad abs sensor, most times when a mechanic checks a sensor they will tap on it to see if a warning light comeson or goes off, since you say it only does this when you hit a bump or pothole i dont believe anything is wrong, as long as your not hearing or feeling anything unusual i wouldnt worry about it, although i know a light coming on telling you something is wrong can be very annoying

2000 caravan odometer and speedometer stopped working and transmission started slipping and check engine light came on. All this happen after hitting a pot hole.


You need to have it checked by a mechanic soon! Sounds like you lost communication with the Vehicle Speed Sensor. The engine computer relies on it for shifting the trans and working the speedo, wait too long and you could cause major damage.

Check engine & TCS OFF are lit but the engine is still running.


Maybe the speed sensor beside the front passenger (right) wheel is dirty or is "out of service"... If this is the problem, the "cruise control" should fail too ; try it on the road...

Hope it will help you, even if my english isn't terrible...
