Dash lights up with TCS when ScanGauge KR is plugged

Truck: Volvo vn780, 2008, Volvo Engine (D-16), current miles 520000.

Problem: When I plug the Scanguage the dash lights up with TCS (Traction Control System). The light will go away only when I disconnect the cable and shut the truck off then restart without the Scanguage.

Any idea why this is happening?

Is it a programming issue with the gauge?

Thanks,

Mike

I don't think it is a ScanGaugeKR problem, the SG is only a reader. It is possibly completing some sort of a circuit in the system. Try plugging in a diagnostic reader and see if the light comes on then.

Update.... Tried plugging the wire in first and it is whats causing the problem... Not sure if anyone else seen this or if its a faulty wire... SG works and connects ok but cant leave it plugged in.
