This morning I turned on my car and the check engine light came on while the VSC light blinked and the traction signal was also on. When I try to accelerate on the highway, it will get to about 50 and stop while the rpms still want to increase?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Anytime the check engine light is illuminated, the VSC and traction control systems will be disabled and their warning lights will also illuminate. The VSC and traction control systems rely on the engine functioning correctly in order for them to work. It sounds like the vehicle may be putting itself into limp home mode, designed to allow the vehicle to be driven home or to a repair shop without causing further engine damage. It is also possible there is a transmission issue. A good technician will be able to properly diagnose and repair the vehicle.
