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.

What is ABS light error in 1999 ford explorer?

If the ABS light is on in your guage cluster, that indicates there is a problem with the ABS system. In another spot on this website the fellow says to : check your brake fluid level check your fuses check the electrical connection to the ABS pump. If you don't find anything wrong then take it in for service. I was lucky, my ABS light came on and when I touched the ABS fuse in the power distribution box in the engine compartment, it made a click sound and the ABS light went out. I guess the fuse wasn't installed all the way.

Why does the ABS light stay on in a 1999 mercury mountaineer?

There is something wrong with your Anti-lock Brake System It could be a fuse , a sensor , or some other problem As long as the " BRAKE " light in your dash is not on , you still have " normal " brakes * in my case , the ABS light suddenly stayed on and the first ABS fuse that I checked was not installed all the way . I touched the fuse with my finger , heard a " click " , and the ABS light went out ( just lucky I guess , but also suspicious of how that could have happened )

Why is the abs warning light on all the time?

The light is on because the ABS (antilock brake system) has a problem. When the light is on the ABS is not functioning. The light will not go off until the problem is fixed. Many auto parts stores will read the trouble codes from your vehicle's computer for zip if you purchase the parts necessary to fix the problem from them. When the problem is fixed the light will go off by itself.

Why would an ABS light be blinking?

I had a the same problem on my 2000 Dodge 1500 Pickup. ABS light & Brake light was on all the time and ABS pump/motor would not shut off even when key was turned off and out of the ignition. I found out the problem was the ABS control module so I bought & replaced it myself. The ABS light & brake light turned off. But then the ABS light was flashing on/off. I looked high & low for the solution for the ABS light flashing on/off and I found it in the service manual, (WHEN THE ABS MODULE IS REPLACED YOU NEED TO RESET THE COMPUTER) The only way to do this is go to the dealer and have them reset the computer. My dealer cost me $48.00 to reset the computer in 5 minutes time.... I have a code reader but I do not have one that programs like the dealer has and when I looked online at the price to buy the programing code reader, it cost $5,500.00 I guess the $ 48.00 is not bad after all... Sorry for the long winded response but I was trying to cover all bases.. Good Luck Signguy

How do you reset an abs light for Chevy Equinox?

ABS Light is on because there is a problem detected with the ABS system. Every time you start the vehicle the ABS system goes through a self test. If it detects a problem the light is illuminated. Once the problem is repaired correctly the system will turn the light off all by itself. Have the codes read by your local auto parts store at no cost then determine what the next step should be to make repairs.

How can you turn off the ABS light in the dashboard of a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Nobody can tell what is wrong with it. How can I disconnect it all together?

The easiest way to turn the light off is to remove the lamp. However, the ABS unit will still not work and the vehicle could slide if the brakes are applied hard.
