What does SRS mean in a Acura TL?

When you start your Acura TL, the OBD-II system runs a self diagnostic check on all major systems. If any of these checks fail, you will see a diagnostic warning light on the dash for the corresponding system. When the SRS system fails this check, you’ll see the SRS light. SRS stands for supplemental restraint system.

When does the TCS warning light come on?

The TCS warning light will pop on when the system detects a loss of traction, like in snowy or rainy weather. Typically the light is seen when the system intervenes to maintain traction. It may light up for a brief period and then go off, or it may flash while it is operating.

When does the traction control light turn on?

Loss of traction most commonly occurs in ice or snow, so the TCS shifts power from the wheel that is slipping to the wheels that are still gripping the pavement well. Your traction control system lets you know it’s working and not working when the TCS light turns on.

How does the traction control system ( TCS ) work?

The traction control system (TCS) helps a driver maintain control and stability of the vehicle if it loses grip and starts to skid or slide. The TCS automatically senses when a wheel loses traction at any time and can be triggered automatically as soon as this is detected.

What to do when your TCS warning light comes on?

If the TCS and the ABS warning lights both come on, along with the red main brake warning light, you should not drive the car until the problem has been fixed. Your entire braking system is affected, and may not be able to stop your vehicle when you need it to.

What does a flickering TCS light mean?

A lingering or flickering light tends to mean the TCS is not working. Should you encounter adverse road conditions, the system will not engage and you face potential damage to the vehicle and yourself. Note: some cars allow you to manually turn traction control off, in which case the “TCS Off” light will also illuminate.
