To fix the rear window, they replaced the computer and motor for it. For the brake light coming on, I have no answer and it seems neither do they. AS far as the ABS thing though, I found out that there is a Toyota Technical Service Bulliten(TSB) that was issued November 28, 2005 that addresses it somewhat. The TSB is number DL001-05 is titled "Rear Axle Bearing Noise" and applies to the '04 to '06 Sequoia. One of the problems it addresses is "intermittent activation of ABS, VSC, and/or TRAC systems on dry flat pavement while driving. VSC/TRAC light flashes intermittently." This problem is covered under the powetrain wattanty for 60 months or 60,000 miles and if you bring it to toyota, they will fix it. I'm guessing that since your ABS light stayed on, perhaps whatever they fix for the above could help your problem. It's probably worth mentioning to them to check. HOpe this helps.
#1670 of 2179 VSC / TRAC and PBrake Light coming on

This seems to be weather related but I don't know what might be sticking. First thing in the morning the VSC / TRAC light as well as the parking brake lights come on. Drive it for a while, shut off the truck and start it right back up. VSC / TRAC stay off. Sometimes the brake indicator goes out sometimes it stays on.
Where should I start looking?
#1671 of 2179 2003 Sequoia Water Drip
Feb 06, 2007 (9:12 pm)
I just noticed what looks to be water dripping from what appears to be a connector in the firewall. The connector is inside the engine well, in front of the passenger seat. A picture of this is posted on my website here: http://www.astronomytom.com/toyota.jpg
The car has 49000 miles. This just showed up today. I do plan to take it in for repair, but wonder if it is okay to drive.

Thanks for your suggestions. You seem pretty knowledgeable on this subject. What year is your sequoia?
I will give this info to the service tech that is working on it. I appreciate it.
How do you find the TSB reports? Are they online???

My Sequoia is a 2005. The TSB reports can be found on line. Some sites require a fee, but if you search enough, you can usually find a site where someone posted them. Some can be found on wwww.mycarstats.com under their "safety station" tab

Since I am just now seeing this post, I wanted to let you know that I have seen similar issues on my 2003 Sequoia. I have had a Wheel Speed sensor and Yaw Rate sensor replaced, both as a solution to my ABS and VSC dash lights coming on. The lights came on a third time but the issue corected itself once the car was hooked up to the diagnostics and the codes reset. If you read the TSB verbiage, the solution for one of the codes (can't recall the exact code)is to replace the expensive microprocessors that control yaw or wheel speed. That's a pretty expensive fix for keeping the dash lights from glowing!! Toyota would not cover the expenses in my cases.
#1675 of 2179 Should I buy extended warranty on 2004 Sequoia
Feb 19, 2007 (8:46 am)
I'm looking for people who have had experience with Sequoia's. I just purchased 2004 Sequoia Limited 4x4 with 60K miles turned in on a lease. I had a 2004 4Runner and was looking to trade up.
The dealer didn't offer me an extended warranty, but after looking at prices ($1400-$2000) for additional 3-4 years of coverage, I'm wondering if it's really worth it to make the purchase now.
I have driven a lot of miles in the past, but have changed my lifestyle and hope to take at least another 4 years to get to 100K miles.
I've had the Sequoia for a week so far and I have noticed that the ride of the vehicle isn't as good as I had hoped. I dropped it off this morning at my local dealership to review the recall on the front lower ball-joint, to see if that is causing some of the problems I'm experiencing. I have also noticed a substancial amount of noise and vibration occurring at speeds of 50-75mph and I don't believe it's because of the tires (new Yokahama's + just had it balanced and alligned...or so the dealer claims).
My question is this: Should I consider the extended warranty or is it something that would be better spent somewhere else?
Thanks in advance to all who answer!

I would see what it covers. I don' t think the driveline itself will fail you but little things like electrical and sensors will start to reak havoc and none of that is covered. Mine is starting to ride rougher and noisier in the last 5K miles. I am trading it in before I really start to pay.

You should also have a look at Extended Warranties.
