It would be nice to know if it's facing up the hill or down the hill. I use to carry an old piece of carpet in my car, placed upside down it gives you traction and can be moved around. Just normal table salt can be sprinkled around the tire, but wait 3 minutes for it to start working. Cold ashes from a wood stove works good, but its messy, kitty litter, or sand, even fish gravel gives traction too. May luck be with you.

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

The check engine light, VSC light and Trac control

2000 toyota highlander just had oil changed and VSC lightis on.
what to do

VSC and trac off,will generally be reset with a readout tool plugged in under dash, knee level drivers side.
When these lighst come on together it is often a sign of improper air fuel mixture, sometimes as a result of running extremely low on fuel or leaving a gas cap loose.
It may also be a symptom of a clogged O2 sensor in one of 3 locations. When resetting the LEDs a readout will analise the cause.

Vsc & trac off indicators

Have you scanned both the engine computer and the abs computer? Because it is an abs problem, likely a wheel speed sensor.
