Yes, but your also only getting TCS light. Not a CEL. A better assumption would be your speed sensor. Your car would be idling very rough if you had AVCS sensor failure.

If they are on at the same time, it is bad news. Bring the car in the dealership and ask them for a loaner until they take care of the issue.

CEL and TCS light on at the same time might be more serious issues.

Whatever it is, since your car is under warranty, make sure it is fixed correctly. Else you might want to look into lemon the car.

Every time I've gone they've made the lights go away for like 50-100 miles then they come back. Do you think they'll give me a loaner car if I'm 18?

Souns like they 'fixed' in a way some tuners do. - Cleaning CEL code. Not investigating and fixing actual cause.

UPDATE: Looks like they're putting in new cam shafts. So we'll see if this fixes the issue
