2001 Toyota Sequoia Question: traction control light

 

Question

recently when I make a right turn the traction control light will come on and stay lit. I can travel to work (10) miles with no problem, but around noon and when I leave work it will light. If I turn the truck off and turn it back on the traction control button will not work when depressed. What should I do. I don't want to contact toyota as of yet

    You have a fault code situation caused by a malfunction in your traction control, any decent independent shop can handle this diagnosis and repair, it does not have to be Toyota.

    here are some shops:

    If the traction control light comes on the traction control computer senses a problem but a scan tool is needed to retrieve codes stored in the computer of your car before any diagnostic tests can be done. Codes stored will indicate where the problem is likely to be.
