Newbie Here. When i put my manual transmission FJ into four high, all three of these lights come on ( VSC OFF, VSC TRAC , traction control ) until i turn the ignition switch off and back on. going back to 2WD doesn't turn them off. is this normal? also it has a brand new transmission. so I'm wondering if the dealership screwed up and doesn't want to admit it. please help.

My lights go out when I shift back to H (unlocked) from LL or HL without turning off the ignition. Have you tried moving a short distance to see if they go out after you shift? Or shift while moving?

I guess the first answer I need is that normal for all three of these lights to come on when shifted to high locked?

Yes the lights are normal when shifting the transfer case into HL.

Quite often in takes a bit of time when shifting the transfer case back into H for things to disengage. If you lightly hold the transfer case lever between for your fingers you can actually feel when the transfer case disengages.

Mine must be messed up then. I only get the locked diff signal in high locked. I get the other three in low locked.

In 4hi you should only have the green 4x4 light and one of the other 3 orange lights ON( VSC ). In 4Low all 3 will be on plus the green 4wd indicator light.

Obviously 2007 and 2014 are different. I guess I probably have a problem that needs to be looked at by the stealership. Hell, they probably caused the problem putting in the new transmission.
