SOURCE: 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!

Replaced dead battery on 2008 toyota highlander, now the engine will not start, everything else works in the car.

Starter may be locked up or bad. If Starter is Ok then it will be in the Ground from the starter. If Engine is Cranking and not turning over you are either not getting 1 or 2 things spark or fuel. No Fuel chances are, it is a bad fuel pump, If No spark it is a bad coil or distributor.

I have a 2008 Highlander. The radio tuner and volume knobs are broken. Looking for a source to replace them. Can you help.

I would call some auto salvage yards first. If no luck there I would go to a Radio Shack or an Ace hardware store. Last resort would be the dealer or a used car lot mechanic.

2008 Toyota Highlander alarm goes off for no reason--unhook battery cable to stop it

You most likely have a bad hood latch switch you can unplug this switch until you get it repaired to stop the alarm from going off.

2005 highlander battery light on after changing to new battery. Maybe alternator is bad already.

Hey there,

I gather the old battery was replaced because it was dead or dying.

Was the battery light on for that one too?

Is the belt around the altenator good?

Cables good? No breaks or frays?
Connectors clean and tight?

If you have a multimeter and are comfortable working under the hood with the engine running, you can check the altenator. Black wire to ground (any bare metal surface or the negative battery terminal) There is a single wire on the rear of the altenator. Red to this one.

An alternative:
Most auto parts stores have the facilities to do a bench check on your altenator. I recommend auto parts stores over a shop because their ulterior motives are trying to sell parts not service. They are less likely to 'Discover a Problem' that previously had no symptoms.

Also keep in mind, just because a battery is new, doesn't mean it's necessarily good. They can sit on the shelf for months, be dropped, whatever. The auto parts store can also perform a 'Load Check'. Voltage is one thing. A load check simulates the draw of a starter. No black magic, it's either Pass or Fail. Fail means replacement.

Hope this helps
