The tcs can mean 2 things, 1 is the temperature colant switch, which is mostly located on top of the intake manifold, and sometimes close to the thermostat housing, this is based upon what type of vehicle it is, and the engine size. also unless your computer might be saying throttle control sensor, or switch. this switch should be located close to the throttle body area, after replacing or checking out the part, you can remove the light , either with a ob 2 scan tool, or disconnect the positive battery cable for about 1 minute, then reconnect it back up, light should now be out.

TCS and Engine Light

I would recommend you have someone check the computer for trouble codes first. The codes will direct you as to what needs to be tested.

Code 340 is for a problem with the cam position sensor. That would affect the tach and cause the check engine light to be on.
And most all the time the check engine light is on the other warning lights will be also. The Traction control system uses the engine and the ABS system to function. So if there is a problem with the engine, the TCS will be disabled.
The cam sensor and circuits would need to be tested. It could be a wiring problem.

Engine light and tcs light both come on my 01 honda oddesey

I would highly recommend having the check engine code read,if you can access the code i would be more than happy to read it to you but there should be no reason why the TCS light comes on.
That is your (TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM) and should not be coming on and off,

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.

Tcs warning light

If a misfire is bad enough the cpu will shut off traction control causing the light to come on. For the engine light to be flashing you need a heavy miss and shouldn't drive it due to potential Cat failure. Changing the coil can fix all issues if that's the only part causing a misfire, typically i would recommend changing the spark plugs while you are in there.

Engine light came on and TCS light what is it

the TCS light is Traction Control System. It works with the anti-lock brake system. When the computer senses wheelspin, it rapidly pulse-brakes that wheel to keep the spinning to a minimum.

If both the check engine light and TCS light are on, you have a trouble code waiting to be read. Major auto parts stores will read your codes for free.

99 TL engine roars and shakes when pressing on gas.

a flashing chack engine light means you have a catalyst damaging misfire the tcs light comes on because this system will not function with certain codes stored for the engine or trans. knowing that you have a misfire you very well could have a bent valve the question is why. have someone check the engine timing incase the timing belt tensioner has failed. i have seen this happen on the 3.2 before or a burnt exhaust valve . as far as the distributor goes the 99 tl does not have one it has cop (coil on plug ignition) . this means you have a seperate coil on top of every plug one of these could have failed check the code to see if the problem is isolated to 1 cylinder rhen start looking at that one and you better hurry that light flashing means you will damage the catalitic converter if the car continues to skip good luck and i hope this helps you.

Tcs light

This is suppose to happen in slick conditions as you don't want to give it gas. If happens when you are not sliding or loosing traction there is something else wrong. This will happen in rain, snow, ice or on loose gravel. The traction control system shuts cylinders down so you can't give it gas and gain speed to help avoid an accident.
