My 2008 Toyota Solara vsc and trac off light came on

Customer Question
My 2008 Toyota Solara...

My 2008 Toyota Solara vsc and trac off light came on suddenly as well as the check engine light. Any suggestions

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

It stays on

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

I have not done anything but my son had the same problem last week with his Volvo and the mechanic said to add some fuel cleaner to the gas and that solved the problem

on a Toyota, when the check engine light comes on, the ABS/TRAC is automatically disabled by default. you need to go to auto zone and have them put their code reader on to see what fault code/s you have stored that is causing the check engine light to come on. write them down and let me know what they are

No I don’t need your help. I went to Auto Zone and they did a test, told me what I needed for $0. They sold me the part I needed and the car is fine. The only question I have is why I was charged $20 when I did not complete registering with you.
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

We experts do not have anything to do with charges you may en cure as the sight sets the rates . But you can put in a refund request through customer service and I'm sure they will help. I may be able to put in a request on your behalf .
