This first happened back in Jan 2005. Just drove my Zaf 1.8 auto 100 yards up the road when there was a sudden deceleration and reduction in power. Both EMC and TC lights were on. A restart cleared the TC light and the car drove normaly. The EMC light took a couple of days to clear.
Took the car to the main dealer who did a Tech 2 which found no fault codes in Traction Control/ABS system. Found that the ECU software was out of date, so updated it and charged me £60.
In the 2.5 years since then fault has reappeared 2 or 3 times and cleared, however yesterday the wife drove to a town 50 miles away with no problems but on the return trip fault reappeared 3 times . Each time the TC light cleared after a restart, but the EMC light is still on when i drove the car this morning with no TC problem. I guess EMC will clear in the next day or two as previous.
Am i right in thinking that whatever ECU corrective action is taking place when it thinks there is a TC problem is causing the EMC light to come on? Does this light usually latch on then clear after so many starts?
Anyone Know where the cause of the TC light problem is likely to be, as I am loath to take it to the main dealer again just to throw money away on further Tech 2 checks?
