Traction control light intermittently switching on


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I've had a look through the forum and can't seem to find a thread or similar issue so looking for some guidance.  

When i was in traffic a few weeks ago my traction control light switched itself on. I turned the dial to sport and the sport light didn't come on but the throttle sharpened. I thought it was just a light issue but it keeps coming on and off intermittently in traffic or when slow moving, its fine if i start up and get moving straight away, in London thats not often! There seemed to be no impact on the performance so I tested to see if the traction control was actually off and turns out it is, stumped. 

Will take it down to B&C and the weekend but looking to see if anybody has seen this before and could offer some advice?

Spot on this was the issue. It actually kicked my car into limp home mode this week as it confused the computer and thought it was a throttle sensor error so not one to leave. Sorted now though after

I seem to remember on the Evora this could happen if the steering wheel position sensor needed re-calibrating. B&C will sort it in short order I'm sure.

Oh, and lolz to...

Thanks everyone, at least I know its not something major with the traction control system or something like that. Will see what B&C say on Friday. 

Cheers

Had the same on my old V6S - it was a brake sensor switch on the brake pedal.
