Question about 2003 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

Vsc abs track off

I turned my car on this morning and noticed the lights flickering, so I knew something was up. The VSC, ABS, and Track Off lights turned on and off at random times throughout my commute today. I assumed it was a battery problem so I turned my auto lights off. When I parked my car in the garage I turned my lights to auto for a split second and the car shut off on me. I had a similar issue in the past and replaced one of the o2 sensors to fix it. . . Could this be the same issue with the other o2 sensor?

    UPDATE*: turns out it was a faulty battery. i went to autozone to have the battery and alternator checked for free. they determined the battery was bad. since my battery was bought from them a few months back, they found it in their system and immediately replaced the exact same battery free of charge! Thanks for all the help here everyone.

Sounds more like the alternator and I wouldn't think the o2 sensor has anything to do with it. That's part of the emissions.
Hope this helps

    Why do you think it's the alternator and not the other o2 sensor (my 03' Avalon XLS has 2 o2 sensors)?

SOURCE: 2004 Sequoia. VSC TRAC, TRAC OFF, and Check

It is not hard to change the sensor, it just screws into a threaded hole. The light will not go out immeditaly, after the sensor is replaced. It needs to go thru a drive cycle. Your best bet is to replace the sensor and get the code cleard by whoever scanned it for the 0031 code.

SOURCE: 2004 Toyota 4Runner, Regarding The VSC TRAC and VSC OFF lights

Check your switches for the VSC, some get bumped on (due to their location) and some get stuck in the "on"position.

More than likley its your VSC computer (VSC Trac, VSC Off, E brake and ABS brake lights all lit). This problem has been sited on other Sequoias that had the TSB brake caliper/rotor upgrade (recall) and that more than likely the VSC software or computer was not updated to meet the demands of the newly installed brake upgrade.

The abs/vsc/trac and check engine lights stay on. could this be a problem associated with emission control?


Its possible.

Whenever the check engine light comes on the VSC and Traction control will disable because they need the engine at 100% in order to function correctly. Since the ABS light is on I would have to wonder if it isn't an abs problem. Since the VSC and Traction control use the ABS sensors/system to function.

Or there is a problem with both the engine and the ABS.

The only way to know for sure is to have the PCM scanned and the ABS module to see what is goind on.

Have you scanned both the engine computer and the abs computer? Because it is an abs problem, likely a wheel speed sensor.
