Question about 2003 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

The check engine light along with the VSC trak light as well as the VSC off lights just came on in my 2003 Toyota land cruiser. It happened once before while on a trip down south and the dealer told me to remove the gas cap to relieve pressure and after a number of miles it would correct and it did(200 miles). This time they want me to bring it in for an expensive diagnosis? Do you have any suggestions as to why this happens and what I can do instead of bringing it in to the dealer?? The car is in excellent condition and very well maintained.Thanks

Without have a diagnoses done on it you cannot pinpoint the problem, so many filters/sensors on modern vehicle any of these could cause these symptoms. I would find a local garage with diagnostic equip who should be cheaper than dealer.

SOURCE: warning light at right side of display panel - take car to dealer

Did you have the vehicle scanned for codes?
If so what were the codes?
Gas cap has to be pressure tested. Looking fine is not gonna cut it.
If you didn't have the vehicle scanned go to Autozone they will do it free. Then get back to me and we will take it from there.

Vsc lite still on

the problem is more than likely the aftermarket catylitic convertor is setting the check engine and vsc light off- have someone- Auto-Zone etc- bypass the code with their handheld computer and it might not come back on.
Replacement catylitic convertors other than those installed by Toyota will set off your sensor for some reason or another.
hope this helps,

Check engine light just came on with the VST OFF light. Seemed liked the transmission slipped. Thoughts before driving again?

A mechanic offered a suggestion that worked. At times the VSC light will appear with the Check Engine light automatically. I had re-fueled the evening before and it was a fuel pressure issue that triggered the Check Engine light. He recommended taking the gas cap off and replacing tightly. Problem solved!!

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.
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?
