Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen years of experience in the automotive industry for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

If the TCS and SLIP came on after overheating, I would disconnect the battery/ clear the codes to see if it returns, if it does return then we need to get a scan tool to read the codes. It may have went into "Limp Mode" since overheating. Try that, if it does not work, then lets get it scanned for trouble codes to determine the actual problem
