TRAC OFF and VSC TRAC system

Asked by Feb 22, 2016 at 12:57 PM about the 2002 Toyota Sequoia SR5

Question type: General

My "TRAC OFF" and VSC TRAC" light is turning on while I'm driving. I have a
TRAC OFF switch but it doesn't turn off the system when I press it off, is that
normal?. How do I turn the TRAC or VSC TRAC

I usually put car in neutral , turn car off, then restart. This will reset the light.

A switch located on the transfer case actuator turns these lights on. If the switch is defective or sticky, and heat from the exhaust expands it into an 'on' condition, both lights will come on and the computer will be confused as these are only supposed to be in conjunction with the vehicle being in 4X4. Remove the forward switch and work it by hand for many times. This solved the problem for me.

When both lights came on I put in park, turn car off then I cranked car back up, so far has disappeared. I also it the button that says VSC trac/Trac off, it go off at that time, but put in park, turned off and waited for couple of minutes, turn car back on & disappeared.

what does the manufacture say about this problem? Is it a design problem, can it be disconnected? Its a real pain in the ass, with bandage solutions. I had the same problems with a Lexus, they kept their heads in the sand with know solutions only to resolve the problem on the next year model...
