    Last night I took off my level 8 mk6's with 265/70/17 Hankook dynapros and replaced them with my winter firestone destination 265/70/16 tires and a refurbished set of 4runner wheels . Drove around the block fine with no lights This morning drove to work 2 miles and immediately those lights came on but the truck is driving good. I have a small lift 1.5 front and back with spc control arms. Why are these lights on? 20191031_064130.jpg

    Could be a few things, stop by your preferred auto store and have them read the Check Engine Code for you, should tell you exactly what's up.

    Apparently, it's not uncommon for a check engine light to trigger those VSC lights as well. The information you need is based on the check engine light being on though. Fix what it's triggering over and all lights will go off.

    If you get the code, bring it here and we can certainly help.

    Not sure. Mine has flipped out on me twice- first time when I got my lift on and second when I had it aligned a few months ago. Probably from switching out your wheels/ tires. System can be twitchy.

    We can all sit here and guess, but checking what the CEL says is going to be your shortest path to the answer.

    My wife's 4runner did this a couple times and it ended up being a bad seal on her gas cap. New cap from Toyota and good to go
