Can a bad exhaust system cause the VSC Trac and the Check Engine light to come on?

Asked by Aug 25, 2015 at 07:45 PM about the 2004 Toyota RAV4 Base 4WD

Question type: General

1 Answer

Yes. The ECU will shut down the VCS/Trac intentionally when the DTC detects anything wrong in the power train. It doesn't want the brakes and throttle giving automatic commands when it's not running right
