2006 Rav 4 computer/vcs issue? Sign In

I have a 06 Rav 4 Limited, 3.5 V6 part time 4wheel drive.

I’m getting this info from my wife I have not been able to duplicate it. The VCS dash light are coming on and tuning off while she’s driving. When you stop and turn the car off the lights do not come back on. Other error lights are also turning on and off. I did a test drive on her route to work with no results. If I get a scan done should there be errors in the memory. Or is the computer the issue. The car has 240k and has been well maintained. By myself or a shop when needed.

That is a thing that Toyotas do.

If the engine computer sets a code it puts all the warning lights on at once.

Apparently the engine computer is seeing something that is intermittent. I would expect that the PCM stored a code in memory that you should be able to retrieve with a code reader. Get the code and post the number here.
