    Traction Control Light On


    What is a Traction Control System?

    Traction Control System (TCS) or Electronic Stability Control (ESC) on modern vehicles helps prevent the drive wheels for spinning unnecessarily and therefore provide the driver with safer control of the vehicle.

    The traction control system uses the core parts of the cars ABS brake system to achieve this. These parts include:

    • Traction Control System (TCS) or Electronic Stability Control (ESC) computer
    • wheel speed sensors
    • solenoids
    • hydraulic modulator assembly
    • electric pump
    • accumulator
    • brake fluid
    • brake components
    • throttle position and load sensor data (from engine computer)

    If any of the above components are faulty or our of range, then the Traction Control System (TCS) or Electronic Stability Control (ESC) will store a fault code in its self diagnostic memory. At the same time it will turn on the Traction Control System (TCS) or Electronic Stability Control (ESC) or ABS light on the dash, to indicate there is a fault.
