Gas cap was not...

Gas cap was not on and check engine and Trac Off light came on.

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

Stays on.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

2014 Tacoma

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

Nothing saw the lights. Read threads and sure enough when I went to check the gas cap it wasn’t on at all.

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

Nothing else

Are you trying to clear the code and the light?

Because the gas cap wasn’t on at all. I trust there is no other issue and there is no noticeable symptoms to indicate otherwise.

As long as there are no other issues you can turn the lights out as well as clear the fault code that was set with the cap off simply by disconnecting the negative battery cable for a few minutes. This will turn the lights off. As long as there are no other issue the lights should remain off.
