I have personally experienced ABS and Traction control problems in the past. My problem was due to a faulty wheel speed sensor. These are a time consuming and difficult fix if you do not have the proper tools, so your best bet is to bring it to an auto repair shop or even the dealer.

It could be a wheel speed sensor, or if you live in a place that's cold or has harsh roads, then it can be an ABS wire. If the lights on your dash come on for BOTH traction control and ABS, that's normal. Traction control system and ABS systems use alot of the same components and are linked. Another possibility is that the problem was fixed and the codes haven't been erased. But........ if you have -40�C winters... it will happen all the time, lol.

your ABS computer sets codes sort of like the one that might turn your "check engine" warning light on. Most garages will have the proper diagnostics to retrieve the code and tell you what is wrong. It could just be something as simple as a dirty wheel speed sensor.

What would cause a 1996 Park Avenue Ultra with a supercharger to have the check engine light and traction control light on at the same time once in a while with MAF Sensor code incorrectly being sent?

A problem with the emissions will sometimes shut off the traction control, thus illuminating the light.

Why does the tcs light come on the dash?

The TCS light stands for Traction Control System. The light will come on if you turn the Traction Control Off. If you cannot just turn it off by pushing the TC button, Is the Check engine light on also? If it is the TCS light will come on as well. If it comes on without the check engine light being on then there is a problem with the TCS. You would have to have that diagnosed by the dealer.

Why does car stall with traction control?

Some traction control systems back off the engine throttle when a certain amount of wheel spin is detected; when over-done, this often makes the car feel as if the engine has stalled. My '05 Honda Accord Hybrid has such a system and it's bad to the point of being unsafe. You'll get halfway through an intersection and the car just stops moving. It won't start again until the gas pedal has been released for a second or two, but you have to turn off the traction control in order to get going in a reasonable amount of time. In a recent storm, the traffic light changed while I was trying to disengage the stupid thing. I should add that not all traction control systems behave this way; my '99 Chrysler LHS had excellent traction control that only had to be disabled once or twice a year (when the snow got really sticky). I've heard that the worst traction control systems are on Toyota Priuses.

Is there a problem with 2002 Aztek traction control and anti lock break?

could be the speed sensors on the front wheels. They are magnetic pickups and after several years start attracting too much debris ( or the bearings are going). Causing the traction control and anti lock brake signal, (also service traction system when shutting off vehicle) Also mine broke a wire to the mag pickup on the passenger side. hard to discover. Inside the protective wire cover, one wire to the pickup failed open after several years of being worked back and forth. Solder and tape repaired it, but it will happen again.

What is VDC in a car?

VDC is Vehicle Dynamics Control VDC is composed of 2 main systems: VTD plus VDC full time 4 wheel traction and engine management. VDC is traction control that senses vehicle direction and uses brake, throttle and engine management to help maintain stability. The components of the VDC system are: all wheel drive using the VTD system. When the wheels are spinning without traction or the vehicle is not going in the direction it is being steered, the VDC system kicks in. Direction: uses brakes to slow down wheels to reduce spin and help control vehicle direction. Skidding: yaw and steering wheel sensors use brakes to slow down spinning wheels and re-direct power to the wheel(s) with the best traction to re-gain control. Engine power use engine output to slow spinning by reducing spark to cylinders to cut back power and help re-gain control.

Chains increase the surface area which increases the friction so you gain traction.

How do experts feel about people having education on guns and gun control itself?

In biology what does control mean?

The control in the experiment is the the thing being compared to. The control does not have the added variables and therefore should not change and stands as a guideline. The control is often confused with the constant which is anything in the lab that remains the same on everything being tested. For example all of the water temperature would be the same, the amount of water would be the same, the environment would be the same, etc.

What kind of traction demonstrates by a vehicle not moving?

Gravity and no force being applied to the vehicle. Traction has nothing to do with it. It boils down to Newtons first law which states, "Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it".
