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?

the TCS light will come on any time the check engine light comes on. Pull codes from the engines computer to see why the check engine light is on. Post the codes in the comments below and I'll do my best to assist you further.
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.
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.
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).
