I have a Toyota L/C sahara T/D, 100 series. When I start the car the following lights on the dashboard remain on, ABS, VSC-TRC, VSC-Off, VGRS, Handbrake.
This has happened after I re charged the battery. The car had not been used for a month or more and the battery had gone flat. Left the battery on charge over night and now showing 12.4v after disconnected from the charger for 3 hrs. Does anyone have an answer re the dash light remaining on ? I checked all the fuses, under the bonnet and each side of the driver and passenger side panels. Cheers

George,
Suggest that you check out the Landcruiser Online Forum, http://www.lcool.org/forum/ . This is an excellent resource for everything Landcruiser. No doubt you will get answers here but the LCOOL Forum is worth a look.

Quite often a flat battery will do that Just needs a reset at the dealer.

My VW does the same thing after a 9 weeki holliday

As I said Take it to the dealer and get the faults cleared from the low voltage it had when you tried to start it

George, try it again.

This time ( after making sure the aux battery is not connected to the main) get a piece of wire and short the + and - terminals of the cables - not the battery - together for about 30 seconds. Then reconnect.

That discharges any small charge left in the ECU and elsewhere.

I have taken the car to he local Toyota dealer. Knowing how Toyota dealers charge, I just hope that I have a big enough wheel barrow to pay for it.

Hi,
I had a 2001 Landcruiser 100TD. Similar problem with a multitude of warning lights coming on. Assumed flat battery and recharged both. With full charge, the warning lights still came on. It turned out to be a failed alternator. Replaced alternator and all was fine again. Don't remember all of the warning lights, apart from the handrake and ABS.
Thanks
Wayne

Ditto to that
My first 80 Series had dash light problems had to get a new regulator in the generator.

For any one interested, here is the result after the dash lights were fixed.
The battery fuse box module had to be replaced.
The steering had to be re programmed
The auto lock system had to be re programmed
All this, $536 later
