What Does The Electronic Throttle Control Light Mean?

This light will commonly light up when you first start the car. If it stays on or illuminates when you’re driving, this can mean there is a major issue with your vehicle’s electronic throttle control system. As you’re driving, take note of how it’s driving. If it’s driving normally, make a service appointment as soon as possible. If your vehicle pulls, stalls, or if you feel differences in the throttle, stop driving. Pullover and have the vehicle towed to a service center.

What Does It Mean When The Traction Control Light Comes On?

The traction control light normally turns on at the same time as the ABS light. These two systems work hand in hand. If the light flashes, this is letting you know that the driving conditions are dangerous. If the light stays on, this can mean there is a problem with the traction control system. Make an appointment and take it to be serviced as soon as possible.

The Powertrain Malfunction Light Is On

The Powertrain Malfunction Light alerts to an issue with the powertrain. This can mean anything involving the engine or transmission. To stay away from unsafe circumstances or more car problems, shut the car off, and have it towed to a service shop. Do not drive while this light is illuminated. Understanding the lights on your dashboard is important and we hope this video was helpful.
