    Default Traction control light comes on when brake pedal is pressed

    My traction control light comes on (the one with that comes on when traction control is kicking in)when i am stopped on drive and press the brakes all the way down hard. The light comes and it beeps a couple of times. I tried it on my friends venza as well and the light comes on in the same situation. Does anybody know what it means? Thannks!

    Thumbs up

    That is Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) I believe.

    Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) is designed to help minimize backward rolling on steep ascents. Downhill Assist Control (DAC) is designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control and speed on steep, downhill descents. Neither system is a substitute for safe driving judgment and practices. Factors including speed, grade, surface conditions and driver input can all affect whether DAC and HAC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details. Automatic Transmission models only.

    Just a quick note , The Hill Assist Control (HAC ) works in forward or reverse . I'm not sure if many know this.

    It is a pain in the butt, but I have noticed that if you don't press hard on the brake pedal,
    it does not activate the feature.
