It means there is a problem with traction control system an there is a DTC- diagnostic trouble code stored in the ABS control module (because traction control is part of the ABS system) Do you know what DTC'S are ? Traction Control

SOURCE: the traction light is on and the rear brake locked

Well, The place to start would be to scan your ABS control module for fault codes. It sounds like you mkay be having a problem with one of the wheel speed sensors. If you have a wheel locking up, the traction control could be applying the brake on the wheel opposite the one that is having the sensor problem. Again, the best piece of diagnostic equipment available for this problem is the brake computer in your car.

What dose trac off mean


It means your traction control system is off.
If you are on a wet road for example and your wheels starts to slip, what traction control does if it is on, is to electronically slow down your wheels until you regain traction on the road again.

Track control pop on what do that mean and can I trim it off


Your traction control switch may be located on center IP fascia. below the front a/c control switch. Pls check your manual. You can turn it on or off and it will indicate visually on the insrument panel cluster. Normally the default mode is off,(traction light off) meaning the traction system is enabled and operational. If the light comes on while the engine is running and even without touching the switch, it only means that your traction control system have been disabled because the system has detected a fault; you can still run and proceed carefully in good brakes without the traction control system..However' you still need to have your vehicle scanned for codes to know the specific cause.

Trac light came on. what does that mean?


trac light goes on when the wheel speed sensor is not giving the traction control computer adequate data, or the traction control computer is bad itself.

Could also be a wire between the traction control module and the sensor.

Did the ABS light go on as well?

What does it mean when you turn on the car and the master warning comes up with the triangle with the exclaimation point on the third picture of the car?


Sorry, other expert winner the chat about your problem. This light shows operational status of traction control system. If it is constantly lit when engine is running, this means that traction control system is off. If the light flashes during driving, it means the loss of traction at the wheels, and traction control system is operating- decreasing engine torque to stop exessive wheelspin.
Hope this help.

Traction active message is coming on what dose this mean?


Your car has what is called "traction Control" when wheel slip is detected by the system it takes control of the brake system and stops the spin, some cars call this Stability Control, if the light is always on then the system has a failed part and is turned off by the control unit.

Engine light on means that your lambda probe is malfunctioning just raplace it and it will come off,or the mixture of gases and gas is not proper and you need to tune the car at bosch motronic.
traction control warning light means that the sensors analizing it are malfunctioning and or you have a serious problem on the traction control
