NO, not as you describe it. Wheel slip with a little chirp shouldnt turn the system on. (less than 1/4-1/2 wheel revolution)2.
The ABS light will only come on if you are using your brakes in the extreme condition of ABS nature. (i.e. slamming the breaks)3.
The lights will remain on momentarily after the incidnet has occurred, if light is on this means that either TCS/RSC/ESC/BCT turned off. If light remain on there is a problem with the system.Some Answer:
Have you tried pushing the Advanced Trac button to see if that fixes it?Try examining the tone ring on every wheel which is located behind the disc brake. Looks like a a thin gear. You can search the forum for a pic and possible how to do. If not the dealership
Advanced Trac is all of these:
TSC= Traction Control System; RSC= Roll Stablilty Control; ESC= Electronic Stablilty Control; ETC= Engine Traction Control BTC= Brake Traction Control
The only one that you can tell is evident of "working" is the ETC that works with the brakes and engine power

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?
