Question about 2003 Toyota Sienna

1 Answer

Can't put van in gear

We can't put the van in gear. Also, the ABS and VSC and TRAC OFF lights are on. However, we are able to use the override button to shift into neutral then drive.

This happened after we pulled a lightweight tractor with the hitch. I don't understand why that would have caused a problem because we have trailered many things before and things that were much heavier and never had a problem.

    Thank for the response.

    Last night, we replaced a broken fuse and that fixed the problem.

    Glad to have a site like this for posting mechanical car problems.

If the trailer had trailer brakes,and you hooked them up,and unhooked them,it could be a short circuit in the trailer brake connector.

Where is located ABS sensor?


the abs sensors( 4 of them ) are located at each wheel near the brake rotor or in the live axle housing close to the wheel
the trac control uses the same sensors and it only takes one faulty unit to put the lights on
the fault can be from a broken wire, wire fallen out of holder

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.

Check engine light and vsc trac off lights stay on. Cannot turn svc off by pressing button on Dash


Hi, have you scanned the vehicle to see why your check engine light is on? IF no, you need to. Toyota/Lexus computer system illumniates both engine light and VSC lights whenver a fault occurs in either unit. VSC or stability control is like trac-control or ABS braking system. Get car scanned and make sure all computers are scanned for additional codes, repair them first reset lights and test drive. ON a side note, fixing check engine light will usually take VSC light away also, however sometimes the VSC system will glitch out and a Steering Angle relearn is necessary, it takes about 3mins to perform and a good quality scan tool with 2004 current software. Good Luck.

03 toyota 4 runner vsc trac and trac off light are on, what´s the problem with?


VSC stands for vehicle stability control and trac is traction control they are incorporated into the ABS system all receive signals from the wheel sensors you must use a digital ohms meter to find the one reading different and replace it in some cases you might find bad connections at the plugs.in any case your brakes will work fine you just wont have ABS braking or traction control

The abs/vsc/trac and check engine lights stay on. could this be a problem associated with emission control?


Its possible.

Whenever the check engine light comes on the VSC and Traction control will disable because they need the engine at 100% in order to function correctly. Since the ABS light is on I would have to wonder if it isn't an abs problem. Since the VSC and Traction control use the ABS sensors/system to function.

Or there is a problem with both the engine and the ABS.

The only way to know for sure is to have the PCM scanned and the ABS module to see what is goind on.

My vsc trac warning light and check engine light went on


Please, make your mechanic check the ABS computer. My RAV4 did the same thing, but the mechanical components were alright. After a while, I almost fell off a cliff because my brakes stopped responding properly. When further checked, my mechanic discovered that the ABS computer was damaged. The part alone costs a whooping $3 thousand bucks, not including labor. So, beware and take precautions. Your life may be endangered.

ABS PROBLEM


Look up above your brake pedal and you should see a switch that is connected to it. This switch controls your brakes and in some vehicles, is tied in to the safety system. Change this and see if your van goes into gear ($10 part)

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.
