#38 of 47 Brake, ABS, VSC warning lights
Jan 30, 2012 (1:17 pm)
I'm in Alberta and have made a couple of 5K mile trips down to San Diego. The 2009 V6 AWD Venza is 3 years old and just out of warranty (63 K kilometers). I have the same issues with warning lights and went to the dealer in High River, got it scoped and they say that it needs a new rear wheel speed sensor. Their estimate is $500 which includes the $300 sensor. I can get one in the US for about $180 and would install it myself.
Has anyone had this experience?

I have a 2010 Venza AWD. I to was having the ABS VSC light coming on everyonce in a while. Finally, I was able to show the dealer the errors. They put the high power laptop on it and found the error codes. Mine was the brake light swithc (we will see), but I was informed that as of 2/2/12, there is a TSC to Toyota dealer that '09 through '11 Venza's ABS sensors are getting water in them and setting off the lights. There are new parts that are coming out to replace the bad parts. I don't know if this will be a recall or not.

For the second time in less than 2 years I have had all 3 of these lights pop up at the same time. THe first time I got it fixed it was under warranty this time however it is not. This time it is the rear speed sensor that is out, last time it was in the front. This time it will cost me over $400! I guess I'll be getting it fixed but it seems like an odd problem and not one I or anyone else should be paying for.

I've had my 2012 Venza for two weeks (325 miles). While driving with my family it suddenly shut off while stopped at a red light. It took 2 attempts to restart. Then the VSC and engine light came on. It also said check the VSC. I drove straight to the dealer. I received a call from the dealer stating the vehicle needed to stay because they were getting a number of ignition codes. They were concerned it would stall again and considered it unsafe. I have to wait for the master mechanic to look at it Monday or Tuesday. Not sure I want the car anymore. :
#42 of 47 2009 Toyota Venza Recall
May 01, 2012 (12:43 pm)
I just rec'd a letter recalling the brake light switch that i had replaced on my 2009 Venza in August 2011. I already traded my car in for another car but i wanted to inform you on this site that I had that part replaced and my car did the exact same thing it had been doing. All 3 lights came on in the dash and the car stopped in my driveway..I believe the problem is more serious than a brake light switch and when you go to get your car repaired ask them to please check it thoroughly.

Follow up to #38.
I purchased the sensor from AutoParts.com, $124, and fitted it myself, about 30 minutes. Problem solved!
btw, I drove it for months with the warning lights on - no problem!

I have a 2010 V6 AWD Venza. When I started it up today, these three warning lights came on and stayed on while I was driving.- check engine; traction; and AWD. I just hit 36,000 miles -I have 36,032 to be exact. I am taking to the dealer on Monday a.m. Any ideas from anyone out there on what we can try to solve the problem

I also have a 2010 V6 but not the AWD. I had similar issue 2 weeks ago and it just hit 22,000 miles. I brought it to the dealer and good thing it was still under warranty. They told me it was the Oil Control Valve and that i have to leave the car with them which I did. Now the car is running smoothly and actually better. I got better mileage now for some reason. I also changed the oil from standard to full synthetic. I hope this helps.
