Customer: replied 5 months ago.
i erased the code both lights went out,about 4 block the tc light came back on about 2 miles the check engine light came back on.
Expert:  david craig replied 5 months ago.

ok, did you see if p0014 came back, because the trac light is going to have nothing to do with that code.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
The check engine light only comes on now because the tc light comes on, I would have to run back to the auto store and recheck it .
Expert:  david craig replied 5 months ago.

no. that is incorrect. a tc light will not turn on the check engine light. there is another issue with the check engine light on.

Expert:  david craig replied 5 months ago.

the check engine light is turning on the tc light. this happens for different reasons. on my toyota, my check engine light came on for a n oxygen sensor problem and the tc light came on also. once i replace the oxygen sensor and erased the code, both lights went off and stayed off.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Traction and stability control systems rely on the ability to request engine torque and if there is an engine related issue that would inhibit that then yes, an engine related issue will turn on the traction control warning light. Either way though, the first step is to use a capable scan tool or code reader to see what codes have set in the ABS module. Has that yet been done?
