Why Did The Dash Light With Squiggly Lines Come On And What Does It Mean?
This light represents the Traction Control System (TCS) which helps keep your car on the road in slippery conditions like rain, snow, or ice. It works with your Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) and operates through a computer and a network of sensors, all of which must work properly to keep you safe. The TCS light will come on in slippery conditions to let you know that it is working to keep your vehicle on the road. However, when the TCS Light Come On under normal driving conditions, there may be a problem in your system. Some of the causes:
· Defective, Dirty, or Corroded Wheel Speed Sensor and/or Faulty Wiring
· The TCS Computer Has Failed
· Problem with the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
· Check Engine Light On
