#53 of 71 Check Engine Light and P004 Code
Jan 26, 2012 (9:17 pm)
I have a 2000 Rav4 and the check engine light came on. I had it scanned for the code and they told me it came up with a P004. I tightened my gas cap and had them reset it. Four or five days later the check engine light came back on with the same code. This time per NAPA recommendation I replaced the gas cap. I went about seven to ten days this time before the light came back on, what could it be. Every time the only code that they find is P004?

I bought 2008 RAV4 V6 at March 1, 2008.
Engine, VSC and 4WD lights all on yesterday. I went to dealer to fix it. I was told have to pay $114 for inspection, then have to pay all cost for repair. I was dispoint for the answer.
Why to check and fix this problem not be covered still in 4 years warranty? Is this a common problem in Toyota? What should I do?
#56 of 71 2007 rav4,vsc,tc,maint, brake lights intermittent
Feb 18, 2012 (8:55 pm)
Okay, I have a 2007 V6 Rav4 2 wheel drive that has vsc, traction, maint require, and brake light coming on intermittently. Was maybe 5% of the time but has become quite frequent as of late. Also found out now that the cruise light is flashing and cruise does not work during this time. They go out by themselves. Any help tremendously appreciated. Could this possibly be gas cap related? I may be able to say it came on once or twice around gas up time?

You dont have to be scare to drive with engine light on ! the only time you have to stop the car and turn off the engine is went the engine light is lit AND FLASHING on and off . If the light is on all the time no danger. You may have to resend your car where they repaired it and ask them to recheck there job correctly , they may had changed the wrong sensors or more sensors has to be replaced it. You can take your time to go to the garage the only thing you may consume more gasoline but notting more then that. Take your time.
#60 of 71 Problem solved new Brake Light Switch - ABS VSC & Brake Light constantly ON
Jan 10, 2013 (8:58 pm)
Hi, I had a problem with my ABS VSC & Brake Light constantly ON for the last 18 months. Which also disengaged my cruise control and probably my power steering. I had bought my beautiful beast 2nd hand 2 years ago and was offered 2 year warranty which included coming back to them for a service every 6 months.
This problem started a month after I purchased my RAV. In the 2 years I have had it I brought it into the dealers 2 times regarding this problem and the two times they kept it overnight for testing. They could not fix my problem. It got to the point where I could not put my car in drive without having to press the brake release button, still could not help me.
A kind gentlemen flags me over at the lights and says, none of your brake lights are working. Fabulous my thinks. So next day take my car to my local Car servo for guy to have a look, meanwhile I say "oh and there's another problem you have to press the brake release button to put car into drive". He says "that sounds like it is all related and it is probably the Brake Light Switch".
This man is a genius. Why has it taken 18 months and 2 overnight visits (plus $$$$) from dealership I bought the frekin car from to then just drop into my local with a seemingly unrelated matter and he's just like, 'ohhh that's the brake light switch'......I am over the moon the local guy...Pro-Works Automative, Matraville, Sydney, Australia, deserves a medal. Now I have to stop myself from automatically pressing the brake release button before I put it into Park.
He also said he has worked with BMWs and Mercedes and they also have this problem. I hope I can help someone like myself and not have to waste, time and money to fix this simple problem.

I am not sure if you have solved your problem or if it was the same problem I was having . My ABS, VSC and Brake Light switch was ON constantly and I had to use Brake release switch to get car into Park. Also Cruise Control disengaged. My local mechanic replaced the Brake Light Switch and it solved all my problems.
