VSC and slip indicator light, alarm sounds, and occasionally ABS system is activated, all while turning on dry good road. Mechanics can't fix. any suggestions

Asked by Apr 23, 2015 at 05:05 PM about the 2008 Toyota Sienna

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

About a year ago the slip indicator light (car with swervy lines) started coming on
intermittently while turning on highways etc. (but not when any risk of tire slipping).  
Brought to Toyota, they said drive slower (really, after years, its the way we drive?).
Then VSC light also came on and alarm sometimes sounded. Two more trips to
Toyota and visit to our own mechanic, no problems found.  In the last 6 months the
ABS system is occasionally activated.  It is on a curve and while driving at least
30MPH, but has done at 35, 55, 70 MPH, on slight or medium turns (not real sharp
turns), going uphill or downhill and left or right.  Activated 6 times driving around Lake
Tahoe, never over 35 MPH and not a windy road but there are turns.  Toyota cannot
figure it out.  Any suggestions?  I've seen several people on here mention similar
issues.  When ABS activates it's very dangerous - thinking about deactivating entire
VSC system.

Hello Kimmerad, I do have the identical issue. it happened twice so far always after a left curve going 30, 35 mph. I thought the left rear break pad was gone and the wheels blocks, but the break pads seems to be OK. I let you know as soon as i find out. Best, Jens

Did either of you ever get this fixed? Thanks, Rob
