The trac light does NOT come on for the smog test. It has noting to do with the smog test. The trac light DOES come on when the Check Engine light comes on, when a failure is detected. From what I remember, the trac light WILL come on if the smog is a "dyno-driven" smog test, but it has nothing to do with the test, the trac simply comes on because only one wheel is spinning, just like it will when you are spinning on ice.. Hope this helps.

I have a 2002 4runner and the engine light plus trac off/vsc trac light is on. Do you know what the problem is?


You need to have it scanned to find out why the Check engine light is on. Autozone will do this for free. As for the other two lights, don't worry about them. They are just on because of the check engine light. They will go off when the engine code is cleared.

Check engine light, trac off light, and vsc trac light are all on. What does this represent?


Can't tell much without scanning it. Sometimes a code in the engine computer will disable other systems and cause the other lights to go on. Bring it somewhere and get it scanned. If your a DIY'er bring it into one of the autoparts stores (ie:autozone) and have them scan it for you for free.

Why is the engine light on along with trac light and vsc light


This could be two seperate problems but the trac and vsc lights can come on when the check engine light does for a number of codes. Have the check ngine light scanned to diagnose the problem. When the problem that caused the engine light to come on is resolved and the code cleared the tra and vsc lights should turn off as well. Rarely they will stay on in which case your toyota dealer may have to do a "zero point calibration".

Check engine and VSC lights on


I talked to you on the live chat, and I think that you may have missed the end of my typing...

What I went on to say is that more often than not, on the 02 4Runners, the Check and VSC lights in tandem look mainly after the emission system, and, since you stated no issues during the road test, I would guess that it is a fuel issue (too full/loose gas cap). But, if you can get the vehicle scanned, I will be very glad to provide you with more and better info if you provide me with the DTC codes. That would require your guy or an autozone hookup to a scan tool. I hope my clarification helps; and the graciouness of a FIxYa rating for this question would be greatly appreciated
