Yes you did

PO 401 -- is an egr valve, you could have
bought when you got home, at the local auto
parts store for $90.00 & installed yourself

You never clear any codes or dash check lights
They are used to look up codes & diagnose
OBD2 System issues.

NOTHING goes away.

Those dash lights have been on all
vehicle for 30 years & indicate you have
a sytem malfunction somewhere.

Got DTC P1676 or TCS DTC
31? Replace the Ignition
Switch

and '99-02 Odysseys.
Got a vehicle in your shop with DTC P1676
(FPTDR signal line failure) or TCS DTC 31 (engine
retard command [PFINH] signal)? A bad ignition
switch (the electrical half) could be the culprit.
NOTE: On the HDS, you'll see TCS DTC 31 listed
as TCS DTC 31-2.
Inspect the ignition switch solder joints for any
signs of overheating. If you notice the solder joints
are melted, replace the ignition switch.

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,

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).

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.

TCS light comes on


the tcs is ur traction control system this reads the wheels and if one slips cuts down power to engine so as not to damage engine or trans also if awd will activate the other wheels for traction the sensors are usually part of the abs[anti-lock brakes] check connections and wires as well as the sensors at the wheels and transmission -since the light is intermittent which would indicate a short or a sensor is about to fail the vehicle will store the code as pending -have vehicle scanned some auto stores do this for free such as auto zone/ advanced auto check ur local area the code will tell u where the problem is coming from

I have a 20001 Odyssey with 70,000. The check engine light and TCS light both came on. The TCS light has since gone out but the check engine remains. I went to an auto parts store and their computer came...


unfortunately it is. Contact your local dealership to see if it may still be covered under a warranty or not.

Customer Concern: The check engine light is on with the trouble code P0740 present. Tests/Procedures: 1. Test drive the vehicle and watch the tachometer. See if the automatic transmission locks up. If unable to see the RPM change, and the Engine Control Module (ECM) is turning on the lockup solenoids, then the problem has to be internal to the transmission. The transmission has an extended warranty from Honda for 7 years or 100,000 miles. Potential Causes: Automatic Transmission
Lock-Up Solenoid
Torque Converter
Tech Tips: TSB #02-062 Diagnostic Codes: P0740

Tcs light and engine check light on my 2000 honda odyssey


I had the same code/symptoms a few weeks ago. Dealer did a nice job checking through all the details. Replaced the egr too, but no improvement. Finally found one cylinder not firing correctly (not the same pressure as the other cylinders.) Dealer did a value clean/adjustment, for about $250, and the problem has been gone for about a month now. We are also getting about 15% better mileage.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1999 honda odyssey.


Take it to Autozone and get them to read the code. If it is a minor problem (i.e., needs new gas cap) fix it and I would disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes and reset the check engine light. It should go off. If it is a serious problem it will come back on. If not it will stay off.

Before you do this get the radio code as disconnecting the battery will disable your radio and you will have to enter a code. It should have come with the car, If not call the dealer and he should be able to give it to you.

Good luck.

2001 HONDA ACCORD CODE P0740 TRANSMISSION


Horsecrap...go to an independent transmission dealer after you call the extended warranty folks and complain!
I can count the number of Honda transmissions that go bad before 300,000 miles on one hand.
Good Luck
