Below are some commonly found Toyota dashboard lights
Sequoia-2010-{{imageAltName}}4HI indicator (4WD models)

  • ABS; or
  • The brake assist system.

Sequoia-2010-{{imageAltName}}AIR BAG OFF indicator

{{singleLineArray[4]}}

Sequoia-2010-{{imageAltName}}AUTO LSD indicator

{{singleLineArray[6]}}

Indicates that the Auto-LSD is active.

Auto-LSD is a second level, low-speed traction control feature on some 2WD trucks and SUVs. The first level, Traction Control, is designed to reduce drive-wheel spin. The key difference in the activation of Auto-LSD is that, along with brake application to a spinning wheel (which helps engage a non-spinning wheel), Auto-LSD also allows engine power to spin the drive wheels faster than the non-drive wheels. This comes in handy on boat ramps, and when driving in modest off-road terrain, where some wheel slippage is desired.
