Default Traction Control (TSC) Flashing 100% of the time.

So i just had my custom headers and full exhaust done up but my TSC Light is solid flashing 100 % of the time, I was expecting the check engine light to come on but not to really expect the TSC to flash all the time, Has anyone had that kind of problem?

My custom header was done up by a place in Boise Idaho called "City Radiador and Muffler". All i got to say is BOB is amazing, amazing.

Let off the gas pedal, there is too much POWER!

Sounds like he bumped a wheel sensor.

aren't you able to disable that function by just pushing the button?
i don't remember if it reactivates itself after 30mph, or if that is just the stability control feature

better yet, get yourself the LSD from TRD

When i turn my car on the lights of the vsc off and the trac light are on, the vsc off light will continally flash. and it comes on when the check engin light comes on. when i reset my ecu (un connect the battery) all the lights will disapear until the car really warms up like a thirty to forty min drive.

The nice thing with those lights on is that i dont ever have to worry about trac control kicking in cause its always off.

If you all would like to turn off your trac and vsc then push your trac button for 5-8 seconds when completly stopped. then you will be good to go.

I will get pics soon I've just been really busy with work and play... but what you really want is sound clips...

To turn off the VSC turn you car on don't move at all push and hold the VSC button for 5-10 seconds and the vsc off light will show up. But as soon as you turn off the car and restart it, the light will be back off. Which means it is activated, kind of reverse because you would think if it's lit up then it's on but it doesn't work that way.

My VSC light is on all the time i can turn my car on or off and it is still on. Its because of my Header that i just resently put on, I no longer have a cat so my check engine light comes on and when it comes on my VSC light comes on also and the light stays on until i reset my ecu.

Cool Yeah I got that....

My vsc, check engine & traction control lights came on when I started modding my shoebox. I'm not able to pin-point which mod. was the main reason for my indicators to come on. I also have headers, an intake, a catback exhaust, & a throttle body spacer. I read somewhere that a dirty MAF sensor can also cause these lights to come on. It kinda made sense to me because I had just put in a cold air intake that had been sitting around collecting dust. A tech support person from a ACDirect (Auto Chips Direct) told me that to reset the ECU, you disconnect the neg. terminal from the battery, allow car to sit for a few minutes , then turn the headlights on & reconnect battery. You then turn the key to accessory position and I forgot exactly how many times(under 10) exactly, but then you pump the gas peddle and turn the engine. I'm not sure if this actually works or if its just the fact that your disconnecting the neg. terminal might be doing the same thing. I appreciate any thoughts, feedback or ideas on how to fix this problem.
