Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Beginning intermittently, but now more frequently, when accelerating from a "rolling stop", and simultaneously turning, the stability control light flashes and the vehicle will not accelerate.

2005 Toyota Sequoia trac off, vsc trac, and check engine lights all came on suddenly on vehicle with 62K miles. Understand this is common problem and that Toyota has recognized this as a common problem with these vehicles but will not correct. Cost to correct is $1,500 - $2,700.

The traction control computer on my 2005 Toyota Sequoia was found to be faulty. Toyota issued a technical service bulletin related to this but will not reimburse or recall those with this faulty computer even when their technical service bulletins clearly states that there was a problem with the skid control computer logic. In my case, the bad skid control computer (part #89541-OC070) caused my vehicle to not be able to accelerate in certain instances. As this problem happened randomly, it presented danger to the driver as well as other vehicles. I believe that this part should be recalled in all Toyota Sequoias with model years 2003 - 2005 as indicated in Toyota's service bulletin.

Vsc, track, and brake lamp stay on. Toyota has not repaired problem. Was first brought to them in warranty when they said they had to replace the computer but didn't have the part. They have since replaced the computer but the problem persist. Now they say it is a master cylinder sensor (2 of them) but still have not repaired. When first brought to them, I was told this was a common problem. Have since noticed that the internet is filled with this same problem. This affects traction and is an obvious safety problem and should be recalled. This problem has continued from 2005 to present.
