I had the same problem. A computer check showed that the emission system was having difficulty. The catalytic converter had to be replaced. The car had under 80,000 miles on it so it was covered by a warranty (State law? Federal law?).
My battery was also dead. That was replaced free too. It had a 7 year warranty.
I do NOT purchase extended warranties.

I have problem with mine and was told it was the left bank catalytic convertor (dealer wanted $1170.00 plus sales tax for this one) (the six cylinder has three and the four cylinder has two). THEN I READ MANUAL.... READ WARNINGS IN MANUAL....
....use only unleaded gasoline(no problem).....
do not drive with low level of gasoline...could cause a misfire and thus create an excessive load on the catalytic convertors...problem..running out of gas will mess up the 3 convertors do not allow the engine to run at idle speed for more than 20 minutes.....problem...might mess up the convertor (wait for kids somewhere????? no can do) ....Avoid racing the engine....(it might mess up the convertors) do not push start or pull start your vehicle......might mess up the convertor..... Do not turn the engine off while the vehicle is moving.... It might just mess up the convertors ...

ON another note be sure not to top off the gas when filling as it might messup the vapor can in the gas tank and cause other problems.

I have this EXACT same issue with my 06 3.5L RAV4 as well only mine is also having all 6 cylinders misfire. I don't see how a catalytic converter would cause my cylinders to misfire. Did you find out your problem?

You will need to hook a OBD II scanner to your vehicle to properly diagnose the problem you are having.

2006 RAV4 V6 multiple cylinder misfire, VSC, check engine and sli


You need a scanner to pull out the engine light codes.
Use a shopu manual to aid you with the diagnosis and repair.
The slip indicator and vsc light being on means these systems are not working. Once you pull the codes and do the repair and erase the codes the lights will go off.
There will be a code in there for the misfiring.
Good luck and keep me posted.

When i started my 2006 rav 4 this morning these lights came on and are still on, brake light,4wd light, ABS, VSC LIGHT?


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)

2004 Rav$ - check engine warning light and Trac VSC lighst are on


Hello. The light can be on for a variety of reasons.
The most common reason for the light coming on is a loose fuel cap.
We would suggest that you take your vehicle to an AutoZone,a PepBoys, or any other comparable auto retail store, and have them connect a scan tool to your car, and obtain the codes.

After you have the codes, please get back to us for additional information.

What is a vsc warning light on a toyota estima hybrid ?


It stands for Vehicle Stability Control When the VSC system takes control it activiates stability correction. The slip indication light flashes while the buzzer activates. The VSC is able to operate at all times except when the centre differential is locked. When the centre differential locks, the VSC-OFF light in the combination meter illuminates to inform the driver that the VSC function has been turned OFF. The centre differential lock is designed for freeing the vehicle if it is stuck in mud for example, however it would be difficult for the vehicle to free itself if the engine output were reduced due to the operation of VSC. Therefore when the centre differential is locked, the VSC function is turned OFF.If a malfunction occurs in the VSC system, the VSC warning light illuminates to alert the driver. If the vehicle with VSC begins to oversteer or understeer because of an emergency avoidance measure, or by excessive speed in a corner, VSC will automatically activate. By adjusting the engine’s power output and braking each wheel independently, VSC helps to return the vehicle to a ‘zone of stable operation’..

What does the VSC light on the dash mean


VSC means Vehicle Stability Control. Take the car for a scan to ease your mind.

Shaking with engine light and VSC Off lights turned on


If just found this on another forum:

A few days ago I started the Cruiser and had 4 indicators stay lit.
They were the CHECK ENGINE...SLIP INDICATOR..VSC TRAC..VSC OFF.
Didnt noticed any change in driving and 4-wheel drive is still working.
I removed the negative cable from the battery and the same indicator lights have NOT come back. Everything is back to normal as far as warning lights go. Should I take it in to the service center and have it checked.
Or should I wait to take it in, if it does it again?
