Default 08 ISF Dash lights are going crazy

so yesterday at night i take the isf for a boot, everything is going great and then i rip it off the lights, as soon as i do the traction starts acting weird and so do the rpms for a few seconds, rights after that the light show started.
check vsc, abs off, traction control off, afs off. all came on at once. i didn't turn anything off.
anyone experience this before?

Sounds like you have a speed sensor or something acting up... lots of other things it can be as well, fault in the electronic throttle body, abs pump not responding properly, who knows...

get it to the dealer (under warranty hopefully still) and have them check it out... if its not under warranty, need to find a way to pull the codes - most cheap code readers probably won't get the job done, need a real scanner more than likely...

Do you have an aftermarket intake?

take it to a nearby toyota dealership and ask them to run it on their scanner, most toyota places will do it for free.

Time to take it to the dealer or other shop to see what the codes are! Theres no way to diagnose whats wrong with it without knowing what the codes are..

Book at a different dealer. You should still be under warranty. There should be NO diagnostic charge.
