The skid control lights come on for no reason the whole car shakes and there is a thumping and grinding noise from the vehicle along with the beeping warning sound. It happens at different speeds sometimes when breaking or turning and losing power. This last a few seconds then the vsc light comes on and the vsc off light and all is ok while lights are on.
Since the date indicated (Nov. 29,2013) the track off lights and system in my Sequoia gets activated without road conditions which justify it. I felt a strong noise and lost power and had a dangerous situation because of the sudden stop or loss of acceleration. Took it to Toyota and told sensors and computer needed to be replaced at great cost , but with no guarantee of definite solution. I believe this is a safety issue involving anti- skid and track system which need to be attended to promptly. Can you help?.
Vehicle vsc and trac is auto-engaging during a drive without cause. The vehicle will jerk to a side, and a grinding noise will occur until the vehicle comes to a stop. Braking is slow and takes much longer to stop the vehicle. Electronic beeping is also heard throughout. Vsc and trac lights come on and stay on after the incident until the vehicle is turned off.
During rush hour, a vehicle before me abruptly stopped. To avoid from hitting them I swerved to the left hitting a wall divider when the front left wheel caved in having me and my family swerve all the way to the right into another sound wall. What I tried to do was hit the brake before going head on into the wall but the gas pedal was stuck causing us to accelerate into the wall. Luckily there were shrubs and bushes to help the car go into a slow as we slid across the wall. I dont know why the gas pedal decide to get stuck and accelerate us into the wall but im hearing from other Sequoia owners that they have had the same problem with their pedals and that needs to be checked out as soon as possible.
My wife and I were on the way south I-405 from work to go to the church. I made exit at fairview, and then left on baker street. I felt the steering wheel was very heavy and uncontrollable. The car crashed. There was no other car involved. My breast and head are in pain right now.
During application of a spare tire to the rear passenger wheel, 2 of the 6 lug screws snapped off at their base. Additionally, previously repaired rear hatch latching mechanism (Toyota recall) broke again, which does not allow access to release the vehicle's spare tire, mounted under the rear.

Last year my car while traveling at a speed of 50 mph just collapsed. My ball joints fell completely off. My the grace of god I wasn't killed because I was on the interstate. I have since had it repaired but not by a Toyota dealer. At the time as now, all my lights were lit vsc trac, abs etc. I have had this problem throughout having this Toyota and it has been very costly. Now as we speak my car is at a dealer and I can only imagine they will tell me it's the faulty computer chip. I will also have them check for rust since I'm hearing of all these cases of rust. My car has been in tip top shape due to my husbands knowledge of cars. However, some of these reports appear to be incidents beyond our control. I'm lucky to be alive. I guess if I had been killed Toyota would still be denying their product is faulty. I would like Toyota to step up and pay for some of these issues I've had and if my car needs this expensive computer chip. . Abs is engaging my brakes they pay for it. This is the second time I've made a report and I haven't heard anything from Toyota. . .

A week after a 36000 mile service and not used for a week, when finally driven, minutes into the drive the emergency light and the traction dash lights came. When taken to dealer, was informed it was the brake booster and computer. I'm baffled this unit(s) would need replacing at 36 thousand miles. Not to mention that the first dealer's visit two wheel studs were placed due to rust. It's very disturbing not knowing what might happen next. The vehicle is used only for long distance trekking.

While driving along at city street speeds, during dry weather, on paved roads, my vsc trac and trac off lights come on. No other warning lights come on. Then a buzzer sounds for about 3 seconds. Then at the same time, a strange grinding sound comes from underneath the car, and the brakes seem to start working for no reason. I quickly pull over, turn off the car. I check the outside of the car and see no indication of running over anything. I then start the car and all the lights are back to normal (off). This happens about 2-3 times a month, for about a month or 2 now. I have not been able to determine any problems.

Full size spare tire does not fit over front wheels if vehicle is equipped with the optional trd brake package because the calipers are larger. Toyota states that in the event of a front flat, the solution is to remove a rear tire, place the spare on the rear then remove the flat front tire and replace it with the rear tire. Toyota refused to replace the original spare with one that fits on the front.

With all the complaints about Toyotas, I thought I should file my complaint about my 2001 Toyota Sequoia. I was driving down the freeway at 70 mph when my front right wheel suddenly flew off! the car slammed down on to the pavement and luckily there were no other cars on the road in wyoming. The pins that the lug nutsscrew on to were all sheered off.
Car had had all applicable services and maintenance. Out of warranty due to high mileage. No problems prior. Noticed noise in front suspension of car. While driving in center lane of freeway on the way to the mechanic, ball joints failed and drivers side front wheel buckled under the car. Miraculously, we were able to get car off of freeway with no injury or damage. Understand there is an outstanding recall of 775,000 vehicles including Sequoia's of our year for this problem. We called Toyota who refused to pay for our repairs twice based on the VIN number of our vehicle. We appealed through our dealer and were refused again by Toyota. Today, our mechanic informed us that he had two more Sequoias with front noise that he referred to Toyota dealerships. Both cars had the universal joints repaired by the dealerships free. Meanwhile, we had to pay more than $2,000 for repairs and have received no assistance or acknowledgement from Toyota. If this problem occurred for 775,000 other vehicles including our make and model, surely our problem should be included.
