Customer Question
I have a 2004 Toyota...
I have a 2004 Toyota Camry and my check engine, VSC and trac off lights are on. They have been on for about a week. This morning, my maintenance required light was flashing. A month ago I bought a new battery and starter. Now these lights are on and I don't know what the problem is. Please help.

The maintenance light is really just a timer that is used to help remind you to get an oil change. You can reset it yourself is it is coming on when it shouldn't. I'll walk you through it if you would like.

The VSC and check engine light will need to have the computer scanned to know what that is. Can you take the car to somewhere to have the light checked? Most parts stores will do that for free.
