2006 Scion xB Question: Lights on the dashboard! What do they mean?
I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND I WAS TOLD THAT THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER HAD GONE BAD LUCKY MY CAR WAS UNDER WARRENTY BECAUSE THE COST WAS ABOUT $1300 FOR THE PART ONLY - Visitor
the engine has a code, it sets all the lights so you take care of it. probably a misfire in the engine and it needs plugs. Need a code reader to see whats going on. - scvscions
Actually... I get this problem all the time, usually the day after putting gas in the car. Apparently there's a problem with the sensors that read whether the gas cap is on tight or not. NOT A BIG DEAL. A change in gas cap will fix the problem, but honestly, if you wait until the tank is about half full the lights go out and the problem 'resets' itself. - Visitor
When this happened to me, an ignition coil had gone bad. Fixed under warranty. - Visitor
Same thing happened to me recently. The dealership head mechanic said that when the ECM IDs a problem, the "check engine light" comes on and the ECM disables the vehicle stabilization control (VSC) and traction control (TRAC OFF). My code turned out to be a bad oxygen sensor. You will have to have a diagnostics done to read the code and figure out what your specific problem is. The VSC and Traction control are not an issue to run with on a dry road, only a possible problem in the rain or snow. - Visitor
I had the same set of lights come on. A friend of mine plugged a diagnostic computer into the car and discovered I needed a new thermostat - Benc77
