Could some one please tell me were the TCS sensor is please?
I have cleaned all the speed sensors and ABS sensors, as the TCS light comes on some times, thought i would clean it to.
I think it could be the one by the diff casing/drive shaft could some one confirm
Thanks David

There is no "TCS" sensor......

TCS is a function of ABS based on inputs and logic programs to prevent wheel spin during hard accelleration on slippery surfaces (snow, gravel, sand, water, tyring to burn out)... Logic will see spinning wheel and apply brake pressure to that wheel to maintain same speed as others, along with hacking into the PCM and cut throttle ange back to reduce the torque/power output from engine.....

When TCS is working, the light will typically illuminate during operation, then go out when car going normal.


Scan of ABS/TCS will reveal codes if there is any kind of problem.. Go find some gravel or sand, and try to put hte pedal to the metal, trying to make wheels spin..... see if system comes online and takes over...

Drive across a grassy area and slam on the brake pedal hard and hold it.. see if car grinds/bumps/clicks to a stop

Thank you for your reply, are you sure that there is not a sensor, as I can be driving on a straight road on a good suface and the light will just come on and stay on for no reason, if I stop and then start again the light goes out.
I am aware what Traction Control is but thought that there would be a sensor to sence different drive shaft speeds etc
Thanks David
