    Default Traction light

    Traction light is always on first thing in the morning on my V6 CDTI, it does not go off untill you turn off and start again and then it takes around 20 seconds. Does not then come on for the rest of the day. Any ideas guys, or is is just a standard thing?

    Look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    You mean it's on all the time you're driving? i.e. on steady as opposed to flashing?

    If it's on that normally means the TC is switched off, do the wheels spin up without the car killing the power.

    Being a V6 you've got the TC button I assume? Does it go off/on as you push the TC button?

    It is an ECU that has the steering angle sensors on it which is part of the TC system, it also controls all you dash clocks, do they ever die, as in all drop? About £400 dealer fix I'm afraid mate if it is the cim. Best get it to dealers and get it plugged in, but that's going to cost about £50 just to diagnose any faults.
