Q: Q: Traction light on

asked by on

The traction light came on, and my car rides roughly.

The TCL, or traction light, typically appears in conjunction with either the ABS, anti-lock braking system, light or with the Service Engine Soon Light. The traction control on your Mitsubishi Galant not only utilizes the ABS for proper function but also has the ability to take control of the throttle body, located in your engine, as well. Due to there being quite the wide variety of possibilities that can cause the symptoms of rough idle with the TCL light being on, it may be time to enlist the assistance of a certified mechanic to come by and diagnose your Mitsubishi’s Traction Control Light and other issues. They will have knowledge as well as computer scanner and tools needed to identify the source of your Mitsubishi’s symptoms. They will also be able to make the repairs necessary to correct your rough idling issue so you can drive your car with the peace of mind knowing it’s idling smooth.
