Traction control light comes on every now and then, also car looses power
and does not move much, but it goes off and the car is fine, but diagnostics
picked up the error code below.

what does error code DSA - 221 ( or just 221 ) mean?

Hello Neil,

It sounds like you have a sensor that is going out and the engine goes into limp mode, can you scan for codes and report back here is a link that will show you how

I never heard of the code DSA - 221 where did you get it?

Please let us know what you find so it will help others.

Best, Ken
