Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

TCS can be a challenge, that is for sure. However if you search on my name for TCS subjects I've written a number of entries about common maladies and how they can be (often) effectively corrected via a few common simple tricks. You might get lucky.

Here's a place to start in your situation. Since your ABS light was a precursor, you might take a look at the wires leading to your ABS sensors, particularly up front. All my 9000s have old brittle cable sheathing that has broken and cracked, leading to the wires fraying and signal being lost at the offending sensors. This will set off your ABS warning, and since the TCS depends on ABS input, this may all trace back to that. I put these cable issues down to age and brittle plastic.

My cars are not TCS, though I've had several that were over the years. So I have decided not to spring for new or used sensors given the $5 value of each car. Maybe I should, I dunno. But anyway, take a look at yours and see if that my be the problem. Could be replacing any damaged ones would quell the ABS issue and resurrect your car's normal operation...if you're lucky!
