hi all :thumbsup:

sat at some traffic lights today and i saw in the corner of my eye the ecu, traction control and the vsc lights come on! :eek:

before i take it for a diagnostic check just wondered if anyone has had this problem before? or new whats wrong with it.

Could be a number of reasons.

Got an Induction kit installed? This quite often causes it to come on. Or even a small hole / slit in air pipes will cause them to come on.

Recently changed wheels / tyers? Just doing this can cause them to come on sometimes.. There's quite a few reasons.

One way of getting rid off them is to remove 2 blue 15 amp fuses from your fusebox for 10 secs. It'll get rid of them for a while if it's not a serious problem, if they stay on then you'd best go get it checked.

Mine keep coming on as of late, think it could be my Cat on the way out, seen as I'm getting a fair bit of rattling from around that area.. :(

I seriously suggest you do the diognosis now... if it gives you a code for the ocv, it could mean the oil pump, ocv itself, or even the valves have packed up. I had the same thing december. i cleared the lights then bout 250 miles after they returned. turns out it was my oil pump and now my big end has gone. cost of new engine... over 5.5k... sort it now before the problems become major. also a new crank and bored and shelled cylenders wil cost a minimum of 1500.

new oil pump ocv changed and valve clearence checked by toyota, around 600 including labour. also check your oil lebel. sounds stupid if the oil light hasn't come on, but its very common that it doesn't. t sports burn oil and need checking constantly. think the code for the ocv is p1963 when u do a diagnosis.
