Hi Im David, theres no relation to having the air on and the TCL light. does the abs light comes on also?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
No

ok, please standby

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
It only happenes when I have the air on, haopened last year and not during the winter. Could it be the hot weather

I dont know of any relation, but let me look

is the check engine light on?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
It does come on if I dont turn the air off. After a day of no air it goes off

ok, when the check engine light comes on it automatically disables the traction control.

it does that that by default

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
But the traction comes on before the check engine light.

you need to take your car in and have the computer scanned for fault codes. it will tell you why the check engine light is coming on and the tcl light. unless you have a code reader
