Toyota 4Runner: TRAC OFF Indicator Light Remains ON

DESCRIPTION

The skid control ECU is connected to the combination meter via the CAN communication system. Pressing the VSC OFF switch turns off traction control and pressing and holding this switch turns off traction control and VSC. If TRAC control turns off, the TRAC OFF indicator light comes on.

If there is a malfunction in the engine control system, the TRAC and A-TRAC system will turn off and the TRAC OFF indicator will turn on.

When the temperature inside the hydraulic brake booster becomes too high, the TRAC OFF indicator light turns on and traction control is stopped until the temperature decreases.

for 4WD:

  • When the transfer is in L4, VSC is prohibited and the VSC OFF indicator and TRAC OFF indicator lights turn on.
  • w/ Rear Differential Lock:

    When the rear differential is locked, VSC is prohibited and the VSC OFF indicator and TRAC OFF indicator lights turn on. At this time, ABS is also prohibited and the ABS warning light turns on.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • When replacing the master cylinder solenoid, perform calibration (See page ).

  • As there may be malfunctions in the transfer system related to when the transfer operates in L4, check the transfer system first (for Part-time 4WD: See page , for Full-time 4WD: See
    page ).
