#71 of 71 VCS TRAC light came on today
Sep 11, 2013 (8:03 pm)
First off I hope this post is not too long winded, but I like to try to be as descriptive as I can. My GF bought a '04 RAV4L (Sport package I believe?) in 2011 with just over 43K miles on it. Ran/still runs great. She only put about 500 or so miles on it the first year. I started driving it last May and since then the ODO is now 50,803. Back in July, the car got hit in the rear end while parked. It was the third in a line of parked cars that got stacked up bumper to bumper by a fourth vehicle hitting the rear of the first parked car. Damage seemed minimal. The "bumper" or facia or whatever you'd call it under the tailgate (and spare) got crumpled in a bit as well as the tailgate itself on the passenger side. The door still worked fine after the hit even though the spare got pushed in a bit on the bottom and the door was dented. (Door is acually tighter now when it closes after the repairs, and doesn't feel quite right to me any more!) But anyway, The only performance issues I have had started back in March '03 when the check engine light came on just before the car was due for inspection. We had the inspection done and had a tune up by the local mechanic, after which the check engine light remained lit until I took it back to him the next day. Since then, everything has been jake until today. I started the car at one point after starting & restarting several times running some long errands the VSC TRAC light came on. Then after another trip which lasted about 30 minutes each way, when I shut the car off the power locks where not working. The only way I could get the doors to unlock was to put the key back in the ignition and turn it to ACC. After getting out, I could not lock the doors with the key fob or by using the key in the lock! My mechanic said it was a fuse, which he fixed and that I need to take the car to a dealership for the VSC TRAC light issue. Can anyone offer any input on my situation before I take it to a dealer and get ******?
Thanx in advance to anyone who can help!!!
