    Ok so I was driving about 35mph when my check engine plus the light underneath it came on, the second light that came on is the one that looks like the road sign with a truck then s shaped treads following on the ground. Does anyone know what could be wrong with my truck, it's a 2011 sport dc 4x4? Thanks all for replys

    check your gas cap first and make sure its tightened all the way. anytime your check engine light comes on it turns the traction control off too.

    Going to have to have a code scanner pull the codes to tell you what is up.
    Any number of a hundred things can cause the light.
    Many of the "check engine" codes can disable the VSC which will bring up the lower light, and a problem with the VSC may trigger the SES.
