My wife just called me from the road. She had a similar trouble light come on, which looked like (!), with a squiggly line underneath it. Any thoughts?

    Ed,

    thanks for your quick response. I'll try that tonight, and let you know if there is still a problem Sounds like I don't need to recalibrate the system or reset the system? On GM vehicles, there is a reset button for the TAPS located within the fuse block. Sounds like Toyota doesn't have the same requirement?

The icon that you are referring to is the "tire pressure warning" light. This indicates that one (or more) of your tire pressures is below the specified inflation pressure. Note that the SPARE tire pressure is also checked. Best advice: Get a real good tire pressure gauge, and reset all of the tire pressures to specification, which is marked on a sticker on the driver side door opening. Once the pressures are set to specs, the light will go out automatically. This should help you out. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating would be most appreciated!

    Depending on when yours was built, there may be a reset button under the dash. The 07s did not have one, I think that they are using a reset on the 09s, prob the same on the 08. If it has a reset, it is under the dash, driver side. Thanks for the FixYa.

The rear door on my 2010 highlander says it's open and getting nuisance alarms. I know the sensor is in the locking mechanism, however that part is $400. Where is the door ajar chime so I can remove it?


Here is what another Highlander owner said: "2010 Highlander 4WD: System check panel I indicating the rear door is open, when it's not. Been to dealer 3 times. Car has 6000 miles on it. The rear door open indicator effects door locking ability with key fob as well as continual chime indicating rear door is open in conjunction with turning dome light off and on. Dealer thought it was rear door strike plate. Adjusted accordingly. This was not the problem. 3rd visit to dealer still trying to pinpoint why this is happening so far no luck. Electrical bad door sensor faulty electrical door switch this problem is very annoying and now times consuming 3 visits to the dealer and still no solution. Rear door open indicator initially made to stop by rolling down driver side window at highway speed. Indicator also made to go off when road turns to the left only. <- " moisture causing short in rear door electrical switch" maybe.

something like this. You can remove it.

What causes a toyota highlander VCS warning


When your VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) light comes on, it means your car has been forced to take evasive action to avoid a dangerous situation. For example, if you're driving on an icy or wet, slippery road, and take a turn too sharp or accelerate too quickly, the vehicle will automatically reduce acceleration or apply pressure to the brakes to prevent the car from losing control. In this situation the VSC indicator light will light up to alert you that the action was taken, and remind you to slow down - or to be extra careful. Be safe!

I just had a few warning lights come on in my 08 Toyota Highlander base model. They were the malfunction indicator lamp, the vsc off, and the trac indicators.


Hello. Those three lights are all designed to illuminate when you have an issue with the electronic sensors on the engine. To properly identify the reason for the lights being on, you will need to get your vehicle hooked up to a scan-tool. AutoZone provides this service for free. Get the car scanned, and get the codes stored in the memory of the car's computer back to us for further assistance.

2008 hyundai indicator light


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT. YOUR TIRES LOOSE AIR PRESSURE WHEN THE WEATHER GOES FROM HOT TO COLD. TRY ADDING SOME AIR TO THE TIRES. THE LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT. ALSO, LOOK IN THE OWNERS MANUAL, IT SHOULD GIVE AN EXPLANATION OF WARNING LIGHTS.

Indicator Light


Usually that's the light that indicated that the e-brake is engaged, check the e-brake if it is not engaged the it's a faulty sensor in the e-brake tripping the light.

Hope this helps
