Was your charcoal canister replaced? Has anybody inspected all the hoses that connect to the canister. They could have replaced the canister and valves and not the hoses. A dry rotted, cracked hose can cause the check engine light illuminate. Oh yeah, stop topping off your gas tank. When it clicks.......don't add anymore.

Toyota 2001, 4-runner, 158k...the check engine,VSC/TRAC, and TRAC OFF warning lights came on at the same time and have stayed on...what could be the problem?


VSC lights always go on during a "Check engine" period so just get the engine fault code and DIY or go to a TRUSTED mechanic (or someone you trust goes to).It is likely an emissions problem.

2001 Toyota 4 Runner has Trac off vsc trac and check engine light on what can cause this


When the computer detects certain faults it will set the check engine light on along with the other lights you've explained. I've seen this on many toyota SUV's. Usually the codes set are oxygen sensor related. There really is no relation between the oxygen sensors and the traction control system but for some reason it disables it and sets the warning lights on. Have the computer scanned for codes at a shop or at a parts store such as autozone for free.

The vsc trac and vsc off, plus the check engine just came up on the dash board. What do I do to make them disappear? Its a toyoto 4runner 2004.


For some reason on Toyota and some Lexus vehicles certain check engine light CEL issues also result in the ECU lighting up the vsc trac and vsc off lights. The ECU actually switches these anti skid and anti lock brake systems off and the lights are to remind you that they are disabled. 1) Check that the fuel cap is on securely 2) Check the oxygen sensors on the exhaust, check that connections are clean and there are no missing wires. 3) Have someone check the on-board diagnostic codes if the CEL is still on
