Question about 1999 Saab 9-5

1 Answer

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

Out on the highway the "check engine" and the "TCS OFF" light started. The car continued to run but it takes maybe a second longer time when I try to start it. Maybe also a little bit weaker...I don't want to push the car hard when the lights are lit. Any idé what's wrong?

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...

TCS AND ENGINE LIT ON DASHBOARD


Any time the check engine light is on the traction control light will also be on. The traction control is disabled when there is a problem with engine management. Your best bet is to scan the engine computer for trouble codes, once you have those post them he and we'll see if we can't get you problem solved.

The TCS light came on and the car started jerking especially at stops. The light would go off for a while after restarting the car but the same problems would happen and the light would eventually come...


The TCS stands for Traction Control System, I believe. The TCS is controlled by inputs from the wheel speed sensors. If you have a bad sensor, then a new hub may be required to repair it.

The check engine light may be a sepawrate problem. Have the codes scanned for both the Anti lock braking sytem, TCS, and the check engine light.

Sometimes it will require a separate scanner for the TCS/ABS vs. the Check Engine light.

Good luck on this diagnosis and repair.

When the engine light comes on, the tcs automatically comes on too, until vehicle is re-started. Once you fix the issue with the engine light , tcs won’t come on anymore.

2002 honda accord TCS light and engine light came on when I was on the highway and the car shook. Also having trouble starting it the last couple of days. Is it a sign of transmission problems or something...


Hi,
Sorry to hear your having a problem.
First I would check the tie balance. If your car 'threw' a tire weight this can cause a shaking sensation and also set off the TCS light making it appear there are major problems.
2- Check your fluid level
3- check and repair any "CV" - or Universal joint looseness.

I hope this helps - once you do these things and if none of them fixes the problem please come back and give us a follow up.

Thanks Gary - please rate me

Check engine light + TCS = braking vibrations


You need to get to a repair shop and have them read the diagnostic codes (the computer port is in the center console under the change holder/lighter). With that amount of mileage, it is very likely the code will show that the oxygen sensors and/or catalytic converters need replacement. If that is the case you will also need a tuneup (plug, wires, etc). I had this done a year ago at 160,000 miles. It is a pricey repair but I get 29mpg at highway speeds and it runs nicely on regular (less power but no pinging).
