  1. I took my 2005 Rav4 to a dealer for to rectify the problem but to no avail.

    Pbm; The lights ABS Trac and Trac Off are always on along with the symbol of a motor it also stays on.
    After 1 1/2 hrs nothing was fixed. They suggested that it might be the computer.
    I did not receive any “data”readings.
