VSC Icon Alarm Comes on When Turning on dry roads

Asked by Jan 18, 2015 at 02:14 PM about the 2006 Toyota Sienna LE AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have a 2006 Toyota Sienna. The vehicle has 188,000 miles on it. The VSC icon comes on along with the alarm when driving on dry roads and when turning whether on flat or downhill travel with the brakes grabbing and releasing. The situation is unpredictable. Had it in and the steering angle alignment was re-adjusted. A computer adjustment according to Toyota. Problem started at approximately 170,000. Had 2 adjustments and the problems persists. The unpredictable nature of this condition precludes wife from driving Sienna. She is afraid the situation might occur on slick roads resulting in a accident or loss of control of vehicle. Problem has been reported to NTSHA. Possible solutions?

Hello I am also having this issue with my '04 Sienna . The traction control kicks in when it shouldnt jerking my steering left and right and pumping the brakes harshly on its own. I have reported it to Toyota corporate and they claim this is the first they have heard of it....which I seriously doubt! PLEASE report your issue to NHSP (National Highway Safety patrol) as I did. We NEED to force them to take this seriously before someone loses a life. You can file a complaint here or call: https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/VehicleComplaint/ I also have a issue where the sliding doors appear unlocked but you cannot get out from the inside or in from the outside. Noting like feeling like I am driving around a death box. If enough reports are made they will force Toyota to do a recall.
