Re: vsc light, check engine light,trac light stay on

Mechanic said the same thing others have stated... for some reason the check engine light also triggers the other lights for no rhyme or reason...
Code PO 348 which he said was "Bank 2 cam sensor problem" he said it was a weird code so he hunted down a sensor just in case... in the meanwhile they removed the Cam cover and found wires chewed by rodents... (remember I said it's been cold...) They repaired the wires, cleared the code and all is well. I was grateful the whole ordeal only cost me $99.
He said he's heard of other people pinning dryer sheets up in the corners of the hood (so they don't catch fire) to keep the rodents out... anyone else have experience keeping the critters away? We have lots of cold days ahead and incidentally the last couple of weeks they have been outsmarting my dogs and my husband's traps. (The cat is worthless...)

Peppermint oil (the actual concentrated type) has been successful according to some.

Re: vsc light, check engine light,trac light stay on

My 2008 has all the lights on and, according to the dealer who spent 4.5 hrs last time, my ECM is losing communication with the CAN bus.
My ABS is not active
My airbag system is not active
My VSC and traction control are not active
All per the dealer...

Occasionally the ABS light is off, but comes on after driving a while.

For a period of time the brake light was on, but went off.
Yesterday it came on again.

Ive ordered the brake light switch and will replace it today.

Any suggestions?

Re: vsc light, check engine light,trac light stay on

New brake light switch didn't fix anything.

Re: vsc light, check engine light,trac light stay on

After a little research I found this:

https://www.purefjcruiser.com/docs/2...tem/028008.pdf

I followed the instructions to reset the DTC and so far have driven about 30 mi without the error lights coming on again. Last time it only lasted 21 miles after the dealer reset it.

Re: vsc light, check engine light,trac light stay on

It did not...
So the Airbag module was fried due to having water in it.
Note: watercrossings will fry them.....

The VSC, ABS etc still not fixed as of yet - they've had the FJ since Sept 6th...

Will post as I find out causes.
