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?

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

I have a 2012 Toyota Rav4 and the same 3 lights came on, and my mechanic got them turned off. It happened again a week later and he put the scope on and said it was the oxygen sensor. So I got it put in ($230). 2 weeks later and it is on again. Took it back and it will go in for a deeper investigation. I say make noise and tell Toyota this is not cool. It should be corrected free of charge since so many are experiencing the same thing. If it doesn't get solved, this poor single woman is switching brands..

I had the same issue. 4wd, trac off and check engine. Got the code p0455. The gas cap was loose! http://www.samarins.com/diagnose/p0455.html

Just got 2011 rav4 37000 miles why at light traction light comes on then off maybe toyota needs do a recall
