Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you today. Give me just a moment to review your post, and I'll be right back with the help you need.

Expert:  Ron replied 7 months ago.

Your Traction control with roll stability control (RSC) light come on when the system detect a problem and when this happens the system will set and store a fault code and or codes. If you can get the system scanned and the fault code and or codes retrieved and post back with them I can help you determine the cause.

How do I scan the system?
Expert:  Ron replied 7 months ago.

In order to scan the system you are going to need access to a full scan tool to hook to the DLC (data link connector) and then run the scan that code and or codes will come up.
