2004 Toyota Sequoia Owner Comments

Vsc track sensor and engine check lights came on while driving at 40 mph in the city. I have noticed in the past two months that when I slow to make a turn the breaks lock up and grind, but not always. The safety break is also on. I have read that when the vsc lights do come on that you cannot go over 50 miles an hour or when on the highway the car will slow down to 50 and cannot go any faster. I'm afraid of this happening when traveling on the highway.

Sequoia 8-cyl

I'm the original owner of my 2004 Toyota Sequoia vehicle. I noticed that my brake light indicator light was illuminated on my dashboard. My first thought was that my emergency brake was not completely disengaged. I pulled over to the side of the road and checked. The brake was off. I started my car and the brake light was still illuminated but it eventually turned off so I assumed that my emergency brake may have been slightly engaged when I was driving. A few days later the brake light was illuminated on my dashboard, again. It went off by itself but it intermittently went on and off over a couple weeks time. I took it to Toyota carlsbad and they diagnosed the problem. The trouble codes came back as P1247 and P1223. These codes indicated that the ABS skid control system malfunctioned which caused my anti-lock system to completely stop working. I had a new ABS skid control computer installed at a cost of $1,035. This shouldn't have occurred with only 39,500 miles on my vehicle. I went on line and discovered that there have been several 2003, 2004 and 2005 Toyota Sequoia vehicles that had to have the ABS system replaced. I'm hoping that Toyota will mandate a recall to have the 2003,2004 and 2005 Toyota Sequoia's ABS systems checked and replace any that are malfunctioning.

2004 Toyota Sequoia skid control ECU had to be replaced by the dealer as the ABS light continually light ups on my vehicle.
