Customer Question
I have a 2007...

I have a 2007 tundra and my VSC off light is flashing and check engine light is on and the anti skid light is on. What does it all mean?

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

It blinks

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tundra yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I'm just sitting here. Turned the truck off then on again. I did check my gas cap too. That's it so far.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I'm towing a trailer too. If that makes any difference.

I can't afford the cost of the phone call. What advice can you give me. Thank you
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 11 months ago

If the ECU detects a fault code in any input it will disable the ABS AND TRAC so that is why those lights are on. So the first thing you need to do is to put a scanner or good code reader on the vehicle and record any codes so we can proceed.

it's all about the codes.. there's do diagnoses of the vsc off light flashing?
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 11 months ago

You may not need to purchase one unless you want to have one handy as some shops like ato zone will do it free or cheap.
