    traction control light

    was just on my way home judt now and was driving in 5th gear,when suddenly i got cramp in my right leg and pushed the throttle to the floor,

    at 100mph my tractioncontrol light started flashing, the cramp went away and i managed to take my foot off.

    does anybody elses light come on when at high speeds.

    Id have thought speed wouldnt be a factor in this - as long as the vehicle detects a loss of traction regardless of speed then the TC should kick in.

    I may be wrong as I dont have TC but Id have thought the fundementals were the same regardless of speed.

    Then again the light may have came on to remind you you're travelling at illegal speeds! lol

    I get it in second quite often, with a non-turbo, but never heard of any car spinning in 5th except on ice/snow

    you can get the wheels to spin in any gear
    you just have to upset the car ie turn an give it some throttle

    if you're going 20mph, rev the guts out of it and drop the clutch I'm sure it is, but in normal driving surely not??
