Hey guys, have any of you experienced this. I was driving along the highway from brissey to the sunshine coast - flat smooth hwy. I was doing about 120KM / HR, when all of a sudden i lost power at the accellerator, I was pushing it down and it wasnt responding at all. I looked at my dash and the "slip light was flashing" i went to pull over to the side and the light went away and power was back on at the accelerator.

I lost power for about 8 seconds. The highway wasnt bumpy, i wasnt giving her some. I was at a constant speed of 120Km. The traction control wasnt turned off.

Doesnt anyone know what could be the problem of this. I thought the slip light was to come on when the car was losing control, therfore reducing power to the wheels to slow the vehicle and gain control. But my problem is the vehicle was no way losing control.

mmmmmmm weird. Any help would be appreciated.


Bondie.

Mine comes on occasionally on the freeway when I pass over a seam in the pavement/concrete. The rear wheels will slip a little bit and the traction control will be activated. It doesn't sound to me like yours is malfunctioning.

Do you lose power at the accellator when this happens and if so how long for.

A simple check.

Make sure your tyres aren't too worn unevenly (front to rear) and check the pressures. Are they still the stock sizes? (either 225/50 R17 and 235/50 R17 or 225/45 R18 and 245/45 R18 depending on what wheels you got).

The symptoms are the Traction Control kicking in, and that usually occurs because the ABS sensors are detecting that your front wheels and rear wheels are not spinning at their pre-determined ratio (with a certain error margin).

If the sensors sense a small slip and you continue to press the gas and/or press it further, it seems to prolong the period of time that the traction control stays on. If you see the light flash and let off the gas completely for a second, it should turn off sooner. When it comes on you will lose power, the computer takes over the throttle so you no longer have control of the application of power.
