TRC and Engine light flashing.. While losing power at times

Postby Vanter » Thu Jul 18, 2013 11:13 pm

I was doing a bit of ruffing around the other day and shortly after my car started to lose power and eventually cut out... I restarted it and my trc light was flashing and my check engine light was on. It does not happen immediately each time i drive the car but eventually when driving long enough the car idles all the way to zero rpm then cuts out if then engine is not revved...

Ive read up on some post on the site and they seem to recomend many different things some which work and some which fail.. I dont have much money to spend and would like to have some clear concise information to get straight to the problem. Ive seen some info concerning a vvti solenoid replacement which seems more solid.. im not sure guys please help. :(

if you want to save money and time and dont know the problem, take it to a good main dealer. otherwise you will be checking and changing forever and the cost of sorting the problem will keep rising and you have no guarantee of solving the problem :)

If you want to get raped...take it to a main dealer...If you want to find the cause of a problem, take it to a remapper. Sorry Dave :lol:

had the same thing at saturday when I was checking spark plugs on my is200T . Accidently I forgot to connect one of the plugs and car was running on 5 cylinders . When I connected it back trc light was blinking but after disconnecting battery for 20 min and connecting it back problem was solved.

Cheers

Your traction control seems to be working fine ...your problem is that u gotta turn it off when u wanna "launch" the car...but be ready to catch the ass as it steps out
