It means your air filter is loose. I had the same thing happen to me a few days after I had an oil change. I took it to the dealership and they said it happens all the time, especially if you have the oil changed by someone not experienced in dealing with Scions.

What does it mean?camry 1998 displaying abs and trac off at high speed120km/hr


This means there is a problem with the trac and abs system. the way it works is that when the computer sees a problem with the abs or trac system it turns them both off. also if the check engine light is turnned on due to a problem the computer shuts down the trac and abs system as well due to the computer not being able to control the trac or abs system when there is a engine problem.

The first step here would be to have the computer scanned and get any stored codes out to find out where the problem is. Have the computer scanned for codes first.

My engine light and trac off light is on. what does the trac off light mean?


The traction control system uses the engine to slow down or speed up the car when necessary.
If the check engine light is on the traction control will not work.
You may have a problem with both systems, but having the computers scanned for trouble codes will point you in the right direction.

Hello, VSC, Trac OFF and Check Engine lights turn on when i was driving. Whats means ? In Autozone said me that problem is with the catalyst system. Thanks for your advise.


when ever the check engine light is turned on for any reason the vsc and trac light also comes on to let you know they are not working, whenever the engine light is on the other systems can not operate if the engine is not working correctly, so its programed to shut down the trac and vsc when the engine light is on. the catalyst system means the catalic converter is no longer cleaning the exhasut to specs, this is caused by a weak bad converter or bad o2 sensors giving false readings you will need to have the sensors checked to see if they are the problem or the converter is the problem good luck.

Check engine light is on together with the vsc and trac light on my Sequoia 2003,what that means?


Hello. Many times the check engine light and VSC and trac are all on due to one or more bad sensors as opposed to any serious trouble. Begin by having your car's computer scanned. AAMCO transmission shops now offer a free scan as do some auto parts stores. Begin with that. Joe
please rate my answer as very helpful thanks.

1. VSC means Vehicle Stability Control.

3. Check simply indicates that there is an issue being communicated from the onboard computer.

Take the car for a scan dear.
