It means that the traction control system is disabled. You may have manually switched it off, or the parking brake may not be fully released, or there is a fault detected in the system and a scan tool will be required to learn what fault has been detected.

I have a 2001 Sequoia replaced connectors to battery. Now E brake light ABS light Trac Off and VSC Trac light are on. I disconnected ground and let it sit. Had code ran and it said open closed circuit abs?...


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.

Hello, VSC, Trac OFF and Check Engine lights turn on when i was driving. Whats means ? In Autozone said me that problem is with the catalyst system. Thanks for your advise.


when ever the check engine light is turned on for any reason the vsc and trac light also comes on to let you know they are not working, whenever the engine light is on the other systems can not operate if the engine is not working correctly, so its programed to shut down the trac and vsc when the engine light is on. the catalyst system means the catalic converter is no longer cleaning the exhasut to specs, this is caused by a weak bad converter or bad o2 sensors giving false readings you will need to have the sensors checked to see if they are the problem or the converter is the problem good luck.

Hi, 1996 buick regal custom 3.1


The most common emission system problem to set off the check engine light is a loose or defective gas cap ( always tighten cap until you hear at least two or three clicks, and try switching the cap with another one to see if it makes a difference ). The trac light is for the traction control system. Either your spinning your tires a lot or maybe a ABS wheel sensor is bad, dirty or a loose wire. The trac light might be on because of a computer error as well ( if you just bought it, make sure all tires are the same size and brand, because some systems are sensitive to different tire circumferences ).

VSC TRAC, TRAC OFF and CHECk ENGINE lights


You have to know what code is stored to fix the problem. Toyota's will generally display a Check Engine light, VSC and TRAC light all at the same time, even if it's a simple problem with an oxygen sensor (for example). You can disconnect the negative battery cable for a few minutes, even though you should a scan tool should be used, to clear out the code.

Are you using a gel based battery?
Sounds like an overload on the charging system screwing the whole electronics of the car.
If not - get it diagnosed at a dealership.
Sorry.

TRAC LIGHT ISSUE


The trac light does NOT come on for the smog test. It has noting to do with the smog test. The trac light DOES come on when the Check Engine light comes on, when a failure is detected. From what I remember, the trac light WILL come on if the smog is a "dyno-driven" smog test, but it has nothing to do with the test, the trac simply comes on because only one wheel is spinning, just like it will when you are spinning on ice.. Hope this helps.

Low trac light


I had the exact same problem with my 2004 Cavlier. I took it in and the dealer said it was a voltage problem with my speed regulator located in one of my wheel bases. I had it replaced under my extended warenty. I suguesst taking you car to a mechnanic as soon as possible, cause it could be that sensor, or an electrical issue all together. Especially if it is that sensor, since it effects your braking system, traction system, and the overall drivability of the car.
