Hi all, had my wife's 2005 L detailed today. Noticed the part of the VSC/TRAC light that is the skidding car icon is very dimly lit when the car is on.

Here is the light when the ignition is ON but car is not yet started:

143878


Here is what I see when the engine is on (note: MAINT REQD was reset/turned off, made no difference):

143879


Car feels and drives completely normal. What could be causing this indicator to partially light up?

Thanks in advance,

-kj-

Yeah, weird part is that no check engine light, just those two lights being dim. I looked everywhere and only you had that same problem.

Really strange. I wonder what we have in common. Let me know if the light goes off. What year is your RAV4?

2004. Yeah I have remote starter. Started my car, came out and the lights were lit dimly. Check my gas cap. But it was good. Search it up and it seems like only u and I have had this problem.
I hope I don’t have to change my alternator soon. Or even battery.
I have a scanner, scanned it but there was no code.

Mine did the same after some water got into the roof and then drained into the passenger's feet area (or was the driver's feet area? cannot really remember). Has your car got glass roof top?
I disconnected the plugs, blew some air, sprayed some electric water remover and everything was fine again.

No sunroof here either, and mine also cleared up after a few days. Weird.
