TCS is an acronym with the meaning "Traction Control System." It prevents wheel spin in low-traction situations. Pressing the button will cause a light on the dash to illuminate. When the light is on, is means the system is disabled. It's a good idea to leave it on, as it can the wear on your differential.

What parts make up the TCS system and which would you recommend replacing when the indicator light comes on and stays on in a 2003 Honda Accord?

I had the ABS light the light (which is the TCS indicator light) and the TCS light all on at the same time. Turned out to be one of my ABS sensors. According to my repair manual it states many diff things with all 4 lights involved with the TCS/ABS system. If its just the TCS system and not ABS then you will have only the TCS light on. If you have all 4 lights on (the 3 mentioned above) and the (Brake) light on then you have a problem with your entire ABS system. Hope this helps.

When my 2002 Honda Accord Ex - V6 get problem in cold temperature, The "TCS" signal would be set; the care can only drive slowly (lesss than 30 MPH). I took the car to AutoZone, they checked the engine and give me Trouble shooting P1607. No more deeep diagnostic can be performed other than an Honda Dealer. Then I took the car to Neil Huuma Honda, when the "TCS" was not set; because the service representative promissed me they can perform the diagnostic no matter "TCS" was set or not. I showed P1607 trouble shooting code to the Honda Dealer, and they said the previous checking means nothing. However, after I paid $89.00 to Honda Neil Huffman Honda Dealer. I only got the following information about the checking: Diagnosed code 1607 Internal PCM Faillure, Needs PCM Replaced Parts $566.00, Labor 200.00. Neil Huffman Honda had no print out diagnosed reports for me at all, except they are very eager to change the very expensive computer...... Should anyone knows more detail about this?

How do you turn the tracton control system back on on a Mazda millenia?

Press the "TCS" button by the shift lever, and notice any change in lights on the dash by the Tachometer/Speedometer. If no change after pressing the button, check the fuse for the TCS. If the fuse is good, you may need to check the TCS/ABS sensor cable hooked to the front wheels, inner and under, towards the rear of the front wheels. Frayed or disconnection with the TCS wire could be the culprit.

What is causing the TCS indicator to light on a 2002 TL?

This means the Traction Control System has kicked on. Your wheels lost traction and it has actived. You can turn your TCS off by hitting the button and then it will stay lite. The Acura automatically resets this system to ON whenever you start your car so to turn it off you will have to keep pushing the button to off. TCS is great when the roads are slippery so I wouldn't turn it off then.
