Asked by Mar 15, 2014 at 08:23 PM about the Toyota RAV4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We own a 2011 RAV4 with 27,000 mile on it.  This morning, the check engine light, 4WD
light and the traction control light all came on.  We are religious with our service work so
this caught us by surprise.  What is going on here?

Take it to AutoZone and see if they can get a code.

Do you have a RAV of this year and the same issues? I am just trying to see if we are alone here with this situation. Thanks

No I don't. Try disconnecting the battery for about a half an hour. If the car's computer has a glitch that will clear it out. Just remember, you may have to put the radio code back in it. So be sure to have that handy. Let me know if it worked.

We have a 2011 Rav4 and all of those lights came on while we were driving tonight. We'll be calling the dealership tomorrow, but wondering if you could shed some light ... I'm a little nervous about driving it. Thank you.

I have a 2010 Rav4 and our 4x4, traction control and check engine lights came on about two months ago. We took it to the dealership today. They said it may be an oxygen sensor

Did they hook it up to a diagnosis machine or just guess?

I have the same exact problem today. Check engine, 4wd and traction control light all on at the same time.

My shop said the Oxygen sensor #2 needed replacing, they are degraded by ethanol in the gas. Said they have seen more of these failing earlier than they should, due to ethanol

I have a 2010 rav4 with 75000 miles and this happened to me 3 times. They will stay on for 2 or 3 days then go off on their own
