About 20% of the time when I start the car the anti-lock and traction control warning lights do not go off. It does not seem to be related to temperature, humidity, or rain.

Any ideas? What are the major causes of this situation?

THANKS!

I had this happen to me once when i returned from my honeymoon.

I had left the car in an outdoor Car park in Manchester, UK in the awful month of January.

Once i started the car, the DSC light never went out despite several turning off of the engine and turning on. I filled up the car after an hours drive and it went off.

Strange, and it never happened again.

I would be very interested to see what had caused this.

My car btw was covered completely in Mud, as it had been splashed numerous times by the passing shuttle bus over the two weeks as my car had been parked next to a rather large puddle.

I can only imagin that it was one of the ABS sensors on the car that had become dirty and had just come clean.

Can be several things, best thing to do is have a mechanic readout the fault codes in the system and advise you on what to do.

the two most common problems that can casue this to happen is a wheel speed sensor or a asc/dsc control module. however these are just the two most common that doesn't mean that these are your problem. take it to a dealer or a euro shop and get the codes read.
