    My 2009 Tacoma recently started to have the ABS and Traction Control light come on for a period of time then go away. I know its a sensor but first I believed my break pads needed to be serviced since I never had them done.

    Before I get raked over hot coals, anybody have this issue and know of easy solutions?

    Shit bolted onto other shit, and junk.
    Pull codes. no easy solutions without realistic analysis. These lights are set to activate for a myriad of reasons and not necessarily involving what you see on the dash. Depending upon the model they are set to catch all, codes will be stored even if the light isn't active. Stop in an auto parts store and they can pull codes for you as well if you don't have a scanner. $30 on Amazon gets you a decent OBD-2 scanner to plug into any vehicle.

    Yes it will go away for a while then come back on. Doesn't happen if I brake hard it is so random but consistent enough to annoy me. Last time I drove for 3 hours and it went away. Then it came back on when I wasn't even braking.

    It may not show codes of the ABS light isn’t on.
    It’s well worth the money to buy a scam tool with the capabilities of ABS and SRS.
    Probably get by without SRS, but it’s nice to have if you need it.
