Brake, ABS, VSC, trac lights all on intermittently - 2006 RAV4
Hi. Here are the trouble codes I received...C0210, C1223, C1238 and C1249. Dealer said they will "start" with replacing right rear speed sensor inside hub to the tune of about 750.00. I guess the car is safe to drive. I had the front brakes done (pads only, rotors okay) recently but these lights were coming on before that.
Does anyone else have this problem and is the above repair my only option?
Thanks for your input.

PROBLEM IS R/R SPEED SENSOR--ALL OTHER CODES ARE A RESULT OF THIS--SENSOR LISTS FROM TOYOTA FOR $136.06 AND LABOR IS 1.3 HRS AT WHAT EVER LABOR RATE AT DEALER IS---SOUNDS TO ME LIKE YOU NEED TO FIND ANOTHER REPAIR SHOP

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.
That code relates to a crankshaft position sensor signal. It you have a check engine light come it disables the VSC and Trac system. Until you get that sensor fixed the VSC and the TRAC system will be inop. So whenever you have a check engine light come on that is what you will see. Even though you cancel the check engine light the fault still exists and the VSC/ TRAC light will come back on. That is a sure way to tell that something is wrong.
Hi, have you scanned the vehicle to see why your check engine light is on? IF no, you need to. Toyota/Lexus computer system illumniates both engine light and VSC lights whenver a fault occurs in either unit. VSC or stability control is like trac-control or ABS braking system. Get car scanned and make sure all computers are scanned for additional codes, repair them first reset lights and test drive. ON a side note, fixing check engine light will usually take VSC light away also, however sometimes the VSC system will glitch out and a Steering Angle relearn is necessary, it takes about 3mins to perform and a good quality scan tool with 2004 current software. Good Luck.
Please, make your mechanic check the ABS computer. My RAV4 did the same thing, but the mechanical components were alright. After a while, I almost fell off a cliff because my brakes stopped responding properly. When further checked, my mechanic discovered that the ABS computer was damaged. The part alone costs a whooping $3 thousand bucks, not including labor. So, beware and take precautions. Your life may be endangered.
If you had your foot on the brake while starting brake light could come on. If a catalytic convertor does not pass at startup (possibly ox sensor or whole convertor) then the computor turns 4wd vsc and check engine light on. note the six cylinder has three catalytic convertors and the four cylinder has two. Very expensive if convertor(s)
I had the same problem after I changed my brake pads. I found out later that it had nothing to do with the brakes. I had the codes on a piece of paper, but iI wound op throwing it away so I dont know if this is your exact problem. My problem was a part called a YAW RATE SENSOR . The part was about $500.00 including installation by an independent repair shop. Something else that I noticed was when you first start up and drive off, there are two small click sounds that are normal. After the warning lights came on, I did not hear those clicks. After the Yaw rate sensor was replaced, the clicks came back.
try disconnecting the negative cable on the battery for 15 minutes then reconnect do this a couple of time if not you may have a module problem being that it's not recommended to jump start a vehicle that's equipped with pcm of any kind good luck
Ensure your parking Brake is full disengaged if its full disengaged You have a problem with the ABS system. Could be many
possibilities such as wheel speed sensors or their wiring, or a problem with the
ABS motorpack or Brake controller module. This is not a Zen problem of
equillibrium in the brake pads. This is a functional or electrical problem in
the ABS which also is the Traction Control. You need to get to a repair facility
to fix this. It will probably cost you but it will be cheaper than
