  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,454 miles
2003 Sequoia bought in Nov 2002. Currently only have 20,474 miles. 1-1/2 yrs after buying car, brake light kept coming on. Took to 3 different dealership and no one could figure out what was wrong. Finally, on 4th attempt, they said it was skid control board. They initially tried to charge me to fix it, but ended up doing under "good will." Now, a few months later, the ABS, vsc and track lights are coming on and the dealership said I need to replace the yaw sensor. They know and I know it is all related to the skid control system, but they want to charge $423 + tax to replace it. I think it should be free, considering the common problem they have with the skid control system. My warranty has expired and I don't have an extended warranty.

Vsc/ABS/skid light on my 03' Sequoia began coming on Nov. 06. I went to the dealership and they said it was the ECU skid control computer and reset it. They said the lights might come back on and they have on and off for the last year. Also, noticed issues w/ the break skidding even though I recently had brakes replaced. Now I have to pay $1500 to have the ECU skid control computer replaced and the car only has 62K miles on it. Way to early to start replacing electronic parts.

The vsc and trac trouble lights are coming on. The car occasionally thinks that we are skidding out of control and begins pulsating the brakes. This is very dangerous. The failure codes in the computer indicate that the skid control ECU needs to be replaced. This is expensive and not covered by warranty, but should be covered by Toyota via a safety recall with an improved version. I have found a lot of complaints on the internet by owners having the same problem.

Toyota Sequoia 2003 ECU computer failure (vsc/ABS light on) after just 40K miles. This is integrated into the powertrain and should be covered under the powertrain warranty which is 60 months/60,000 miles. They want me to pay 2500 dollars.
