As stated, after checking gascap and sisconnecting positive terminal for a few moments, ligts went off...temporarily.After driving for 10 miles, they came back on. I do alot of driving over terrible rocky roads, and lifted vehicle to check for loose EPA modules,especially near all the hosing by gas tank and front plate. I realize that this is an issue with the Rav 4, but does ANYONE have an exact solution or can tell me EXACTLY what the problem is. PLEASE, no could be's, might be's...just a definitive answer. Would so greatly appreciate it. PLEASE, HELP OUT A VETERAN IN NEED.
Check engine/VSC/4WD lights were all on.Checked gascap&disconneted battery,no go on 2006 Toyota RAV4

Im a veteran too and want to help... but no way to help you without you getting the fault codes read and posted back here for us to help you. No way a gas cap can cause all those malfuntion lamps...get us some fault codes if you can.

MilesAuto, just got back from the shop with the diagnostsic test completed.This is what it said: Codes- P0137-P0606-C1201 As for problems,it stated the following: 1.Oxygen sensor-Bank 1-sensor[AFS] 2.Bank 1-sensor 2-Oxygen sensor #2 Hope this nmakes sense....Now for the most difficult situation/problem for me and my family is this...I have been relocated in my job to Costa Rica till August 2014,so any/all parts I would need will definately have to be ordered online and sent to me here to my courier box. Very difficult living conditions and dont really want to drive the vehicle especially with twin infants in tow. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Highly doubt that its a problem that I can personally correct myself. Do have tools and a fair knowledge of mechanics, but as stated, want to do it right the first time. Thanks again, Robert
