Question about 2001 Toyota 4Runner
This has happened in the past-went to few different mechanics where they scrolled through the computer and it said something about the exhaust? How ever-another time I was told was that it was a solenoid around the gas tank area. Parts were repalced about a year ago. I then had recent brake work done(new pads, rotors resurfaced, tires rotated. Thes lights di not come on immediately, but a few days after. It seems coincidental that it has occurred in the past following tire/brake work and it has been going on intermittently for two years. I have already put probably almost $1000 into this problem between them running the computer, parts and labor-I cannot believe this is an issue again and the part that is the greatest problem to me is that the vsc does not work, and the four wheel drive as well when these lights click on.
I have the same problem on my 2001 4Runner. I have been told and also researched that it has something to do with the fuel pressure and making sure the gas cap is on tight enough. The solution I have used...with minimal success...is to disconnect the battery which resets the VSC/traction/check engine light. Sometimes I can go two months without it coming back on and sometimes it comes back on in one day.
I wish Toyota would do a recall on this because it is more annoying that mechanically troublesome.

I have had the same problem, i recently took mine to a mechanic and he says its the abs pump or one of the individual abs pump sensors located on each of the tires, makes sense, cause I originally thought it might be my master cylinder with the noise I am hearing as well.

Check the trouble code that is causing check engine light to come on and repair that. That should take care of all the lights if they all came on at the same time
