ABS repaired..but...

TC system not operating

ABS repaired..but...

Postby crew04 [OP] » Jan 24 2014, 9:16pm

Afternoon: I had a post in the brake section about a shorted pump fault code on the ABS unit, it was/is a bad pump once found "with good help"and traced, etc. Anyway, a salvage yard unit has been installed (identical donor truck with traction control ABS unit) and ABS is operating correct, but the TC system is turned off once the truck starts and runs for approx 5 secs.
The push-button does not change status, first gear does not change status, and power-wise, it is not being affected as if the TC was working but with a false indicator light.
In a service manual it says "this can be programmed to select operation". When i scrolled through the menus selection (steering wheel buttons), I didn't find any TC option.
Anyone got some input as to if this is possible to do by driver controls or is a dealer only option to have done.
Assuming that this code? is why the TC is being turned off?

I can't answer the DIC options question since I don't have TC (glad of it). The new abs unit, being from a bone yard, may have its own problems. I would look at it as if it's a new problem. Check the speed sensors, check the fuses, etc.
