A slip light that stays on usually means that TCS isn't working as it should. Most likely because the pads are worn, or in your case, may have popped loose. I would get them inspected.

You may have damaged the wheel speed sensor for that wheel. Check it out.

Also, because of worn pads your brake fluid could be getting low. Anything below half could cause the same issue.

If you hit a curb and this has been the case since the incident this is more than likely the cause. Other things can cause it but would probably give you some different/other tells for troubleshooting.

This as well. Make sure your brake fluid is maxed. I’ve heard numerous times of issues with braking system sensors that were resolved with filling brake fluid to max. Maybe wouldn’t hurt to pop that wheel that hit the curb off and inspect your pads to be sure both are seated properly and everything looks good.

If you smacked the curb (or anything else) hard enough to set off TCS lights, you need to get the front steering and suspension inspected for damage. It might be as trivial as a sensor knocked out of place or it could be the front wheel about to fall off. And there's a good chance that you knocked things out of alignment. Any good tire/alignment shop should be able to perform an inspection.

Yes. But don't be driving hard until you get things checked out.

You might have damaged a wheel bearing assembly when you hit the curb. The wheel sensor is part of the assembly.


On a side note, why would you even consider driving a car after hitting a curb?
