As soon as the vehicle is warmed up the traction control warning light comes on and it will no longer go into overdrive at all
My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello. The computer will keep the vehicle from going into overdrive and turn on the traction light if it detects a problem in the system. This can be caused by a steering sensor or a wheel speed sensor. It may also be caused by a failure in the computer itself.
I usually start by scanning the computer for codes. This will tell me why the computer is turning these warnings on and it will give me a place to start for the diagnosis. From that point, I can begin testing.
