problem #6

May 212009

Sequoia

  • 60,000 miles
All brake related lights (vsc, brake, skid control etc.) on the dash of my 2002 Toyota Sequoia just came on. Two mechanics weren't sure what the cause was, the local Toyota dealer today said the cost to repair the ECU skid control computer (or chip) would be $2400. No braking problems as yet. Many comments on chat rooms have stated that this is a common complaint, very expensive to repair, that Toyota has knowledge of this defect, and that it can have dangerous consequences.

Sequoia

  • 90,000 miles
The vsc/trac light on my 2002 Toyota Sequoia comes on at very random times. Sometimes it is within seconds of starting the vehicle, other times it isn't until it has been driven for 30 minutes or longer. When this occurs the vehicle goes into anti lock mode, making a severe grinding noise, and pulling significantly to the side. Once the vsc warning lights come on the vehicle drives normally, but the lights do stay on until the vehicle is restarted.

Sequoia

  • 40,000 miles
This has been occurring for quite a while now. The vsc/trac light on my 2002 Toyota Sequoia comes on after driving for a few minutes. When this occurs it feels like the vehicle looses power and goes into "anti lock" mode. It's a scary feeling when driving at highway speeds. Once the vsc warning lights come on the vehicle drives normally, but the lights do stay on until the vehicle is restarted.
