During Eco-friendly acceleration (Eco driving), the Eco Driving Indicator Light will turn on. If acceleration exceeds the Zone of Eco-Driving or the vehicle is stopped, the light turns off.

Push and hold the switch while the vehicle is stopped to turn off TRAC and VSC. The TRAC OFF indicator light and VSC off indicator light should come on. Push the switch again to turn the system back on.

If the light does not turn off even after the tire inflation pressure is adjusted, have the system checked by your Toyota dealer. If the light stays on after blinking for one minute, this may mean you have a malfunction in the tire pressure warning system. Contact your Toyota dealer for help.
Indicates that maintenance is required according to the driven distance on the maintenance schedule. On newer Toyota models, this light will turn on every 5,000 miles to remind you of an oil change and tire rotation. Perform maintenance as necessary and reset light.
If this light stays on, this is an indication that there is something wrong with the system, and it is possibly disabled. This may mean that the airbags will not deploy and the seat belts will not tighten in an accident.

In the event of a faulty SRS, you should visit your Toyota dealer immediately.
