Question about 2003 Nissan 350Z
I have a Nissan 350z 2003 and have recently seen the TCS/SLIP lights turn on. It has disabled the ability to accelerate by cutting the ability to control the throttle body actuator motor. I have followed the Manual's diagnostics tests and replaced the electronic throttle control (ETC) as suggested, but still my car is in the limp mode. Is there a code the dealers have to disable the TCS/SLIP lights?
TCS is Traction Control System,and all TCS's are controlled though the Anti Lock Braking (ABS) system.Here's how it works:Each wheel,or in some cases,only the drive wheels have a speed sensor mounted near the hub or axle,and sends a speed signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module).The PCM monitors wheel speed continuously,and if it sees a speed out of the ordinary,say for example the right rear tire is spinning and traveling at a much higher speed than the left rear,the PCM will pulse the brakes through the ABS system on the right rear to slow down the right rear so that the left and right wheel speeds match up,this is how the traction control works.So,if you have a TCS problem,the PCM will see this and set a Dignostic Trouble Code (DTC).You need to pull the DTC's out of the system with a scan tool,diagnose and repair the DTC's.It could likely be something as simple as a malfunctioning wheel speed sensor,but you won't know until the codes are pulled out,as this will point in the general direction.Good luck.
