    Default Traction controll issues during movement

    My 2010 Puma just suddenly started to shudder. I came to a standstill and when I try to go again the TC light comes on and the shuddering starts. Like it's breaking one of the wheels. Could this be a faulty sensor? How do I safely switch it off to assess if this is indeed the problem?

    If TC or all driver aids have a fuse maybe pull that out and see?

    Also, check and clean wheel speed sensors

    Where are these sensors located? What do I need to look out for?

    Just pull the fuse for the ABS system. It will deactivate your traction control and allow you to drive normally.

    the only reason it would do that is that at least one of your wheel speed sensors is giving a reason that is way out. You would need to get the vehicle onto diagnostics to determine which one.

    this is the first I have heard of an issue like this. Normally sensors fail and give a speed reading of zero, which will just deactivate the ABS/TC system.

    Perhaps it's the handbrake binding. I hear and feel a shuddering in the drive train and TC light comes on when pressing petrol..... And when I leave the pedal it stops
