About the Hilux

The Toyota Hilux is a great pickup truck, but it has plenty of warning lights that come on when there's something wrong.

If you're not sure what they mean, then this page will help.

The Hilux is part of the Toyota range of pickup trucks that include the Tacoma and the Tundra.

Here are the most common warning lights and their meanings.


The ABS light may be coming on because one or more of your tires are low in pressure.

This can lead to decreased brake performance and increased stopping distance.

Pump up those tires before driving again so that your ABS sensor can detect real issues such as faulty components.

Traction Control

The TCS OFF light shows that the traction control system has been turned off by either you or your mechanic for some reason.

Turn it back on if it was accidentally disabled, otherwise ignore this message-just drive carefully until you can get to a service center and have them look at it.

Check Engine Light

The check engine light in a Toyota Hilux is best-taken care of by trained service personnel.

It can be caused by a variety of issues popping up, it can indicate the car needs a service or that the car is warning you of an engine malfunction.

Driving with your check engine light on can be dangerous as it may not only damage your Hilux but also put you and other drivers in danger.
