What is TCS in a Car?
Owning a car is not uncommon, nor is it difficult. However, maintaining your vehicle is a far more difficult task. There are certain things that you have to manage and monitor yourself, like maintaining clean oil and wiper fluid or keeping your tires properly inflated. But others are done by the vehicle itself, and a car’s traction control system is one of them. A well-performing traction control system is vital to a vehicle’s ability to drive properly.
So let’s say one afternoon you walk out to your car, get in the driver’s seat, and attempt to start your ignition. Your vehicle starts, and upon observing your dashboard, you notice that a yellow light named “TCS” has appeared. What does this mean? Is my car broken? Will my vehicle be damaged if I drive it? How much will it cost to fix this?
A litany of questions may be running through your head, but there is no need to panic. We will teach you everything you need to know about the TCS light in your vehicle and guide you through what you need to do if it turns on in your vehicle. But first, let’s discuss what exactly your TCS is.
