I don't have an answer for you, but I have a '94 GS300 and the trac light was coming on. I just got the 75K mile service done and they said the error code pointed to TPS and GPS (I think?). They changed both sensors. The light still comes on as follows: If I turn the key to accessories (where radio turns on) and wait a few seconds and then start the car, the TRAC light will stay on. If I turn the key all the way from off to start (without pausing at accessory position), the TRAC light does not come on. I am taking my car back today to have them look at it again. Please let me know if you get any new info also. Good luck.

Yes, that is one of many things that can cause the light to come on.

The check engine/service engine light should come on as soon as the ignition is turned to the on position without starting the engine. If it does not, then the bulb is either blown or has been removed.

Depends on which engine warning light you are referring to. If you are referring to the Check Engine light then have the problem repaired that caused it to come on in the first place. They will reset the light. Resetting the light without repairing the problem and it will just come back on.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.

No, the check engine light does not come on because your gas is half way full. The check engine light will come on if there is a problem with the engine.

On the instrument cluster. Turn the ignition on without starting the engine. You will see the light come on. If you do not see the light, then the bulb is blown or has been removed.

If you turn on the ignition without starting the engine and the Check Engine light does not come on, the bulb has burnt our or has been removed. Replace the bulb.

If an check engine light does not come on it is a good thing. When your check engine light comes on, it means you need service done on your vehicle.

If it has a downstream O2 sensor the check engine light will come on but if it does not the light may not come out. In most instances it will set the check engine light.

No, the check engine light has nothing to do with the oil level in the vehicle. The check engine light will come on when there is a problem with the emission system. The red oil warning light will come on if your vehicle is low on oil.

The check engine light is just to the left of your battery voltage gauge in your gauge cluster . When you turn your ignition key to the run position , just before starting your engine , the check engine light should come on momentarily to check the bulb

When you turn the ignition key to the run position , just before starting your Explorer , the check engine light should come on for a few seconds to prove that the bulb works

What engine light? The check engine light should come on when you first start the vehicle and then go out after a few seconds. If it does not the bulb may be burnt out or has been removed.

The check engine light is on when the engine computer has detected a malfunction and set a code. There are pages of possible causes. You need to have the system checked with a scan tool or code reader to have a starting point.

It is illegal to cut the light, remove the bulb or in anyway fix it so the light will not come on. If you are just wanting to reset the light then you must first have the problem that set the light repaired. If not it will just come back on. On some vehicles disconnecting the negative battery cable for 5 minutes will reset the light.

The engine light can come a vehicle for many reasons. If the transmission is having a delay, it could possible make an engine light come on.

Check engine lights can come on for a number of reasons. If you didn't get the cable right or got a sparks when connecting or disconnecting that could most definitely cause problems with the check engine light or even blow the alternator fuse.

Warning lights come on when there is a problem. An Engine management light comes on when there is a problem within the engine, that may cause problems later.

It will usually come on. The speed sensor on my transmission died and it displayed the check engine light.
