    I was out last night and the traction control light came on and would not switch back on untill i restarted the car.Been reading some posts about two sensors do you think it might be a sensor playing up on mine.
    If so where are the sensors my car is a 2005 3.2 prefacelif?
    Can you not remove sensors clean and plug back in?


    thanks ada

    the best bet would be to have it checked by hopefully a fellow member with VCDS to see exactly what caused the fault to register. There are quite a few parts in the system & it might save you changing something that commonly fails but didnt on yours. If its the lateral & longitudinal your talking about I'm doubful they can be cleaned.

    Where do you live?

    I believe the sensors are in/under the dashboard/centre console.
