I took the car to a mechanic and when it was returned to me the four wheel engaging light was blinking. The mechanic said he put it in four wheel drive and then disengaged it but the light kept flashing. He attributed it to an electrical problem but this never existed until he drove it. I imagine a solenoid is stuck somewhere but can someone shed some light on what might be going on here.

This is the third time lights have stayed on. Lights come on in same general area when driving down Highway 212. Seems to happen in area between Roberts and Joliet, which is bumpy in spots.

Brake feels like when u need to bleed it brake fluid is full

It show no code won't read when I try to see what code it may be anyone know what I can DO

the vsc and battery light is showing. please how do i resolve that?

On my 2001 Toyota 4runner 3.4l 4wd, when i brake, it pulls to the right. i brought it to 2 Toyota mechanics and both said it was the ABS pump/booster which cost like $2000 new. I have read online to check the ABS speed sensors, but would those cause it to pull to one side? The brakes work fine but i do avoid hard braking, cause that's when the pulling is more severe.

you can hold the blinker switch forward and bright lights stay on but as soon as you release it they go back to dim. I just bought this vehicle three days ago

While driving on the highway the other day, I slowed for traffic, the car stalled, when I put it in park to restart it, engine started right up, ran fine, as soon as I put it in drive or reverse it stalled.
Mechanic thinks I blew transmission, I do not. Car has 250,000 miles, also need a catalytic converter (engine light, VSC and TRAC lights have been on for 10 months)

i had the Suspension Stabilizer Sway Bar Links Replaced in the front. i can still feel it. rolling over railroad track crossings, small pot-holes in the road, running over a two-by-four. i have not returned to the mechanic yet. he tells me the all of the suspension has been inspected. what do you think? it seems more noticeable at lower speeds, like when pulling out of the driveway and running over something.

I re-calibrated my VSC and the problem persists. It's definitely electronic in nature, as when the check engine light comes on there is no delay. When the check engine light is off the problem comes back randomly. Frustrated.

I cleaned out throttlebody and everything cleared up and went away. Drove around town for a while then on my way back home coming downhill again comes back on. Let it sit for a while come back out everything's fine drive around for little while happens again.
