The ABS light has NEVER activated during operation on either our 2010 or 2011. If the system is activating that much, and that light (ABS) comes on, I'm wondering if there's a speed sensor freaking out. But that's just a random, SWAG (simple-wild-ass-guess) theory. (I'm not a mechanic, I just play one with a ScanGauge.)
TCS light should stop flashing immediately after operation. If the light remains on and solid, the system is off.

TC and AdvanceTrac with RSC plus Trailer Anti-Sway are all fuctions of the ABS but only the TC has a dash indicator to let the driver know when it activates. The others have no indicator and if they are activated your going to be way too busy trying to control your vehicle to notice anything.

The ABS light also comes on. Both waring lights will stay on for quite a while, sometimes even after turning the engine off and restarting. Three questions;
1. Should this system be that sensitive?
2. Is it normal for the ABS light to come on with the "sliding car" light
3. How long should the warning lights remain on once the system is engaged?

Note: 2009s don't have TSC... Trailer Sway Control.
