    TC light

    after aprox 15 miles my TC light comes on and stays on untill i turn the car off and restart.

    when the TC light is on it does cut the TC out.

    i usually only notice this on the motorway as i never really do 15 miles in or around a town.

    brings up no fault codes? any idea's?

    earth crimp mod - do it if u havent already

    then once done u can look at other options if it still occurs

    mine used to happen virtually every day - earth mod done and its never happened since

    it also helped iron out the idle a touch and also stopped fake fault codes triggering

    usually the hub would bring on the ABS light too

    as i say, it cured the TC light on mine and a few other ZLETs i know of

    worth a shot before worrying about other options...only takes half hour or so

    yea i will do the earth mod, like you say its only an half job that can only help improve current problems or stop future problems.

    i thought that wire was a bit thick. i have some 16 amp wire in the garage, its reasonabally thick and quite stiff (so is the wire. lol) would that be ok?
