I Was Driving 80 Mph On The Interstate When The Engine Light Came On And A “check Awd” Display Appeared. At That Same Moment I Lost The Ability To Steer And To Accelerate. I Managed To Get The Car Off Of The Interstate. The Car Came To A Stop. I Did Not See Any Smoke, Or Smell Anything And The Engine Temp Gauge Showed Mid Cool So I Decided To Start The Car Again. When I Tried To Start The Car, The Engine Light And The “check Awd” Display Came On Again, And Then Seconds Later A Temperature Light Came On With A Loud Alarm. Smoke Started Coming Out Of The Front Left Hood. I Shouted For My Daughter And Her Friend To Get Out Of The Vehicle. I Grabbed My Phone And Ran To Her Door To Help Her And Her Friend Get Out. By The Time We Were Running Away, Flames Were Coming Out Of The Hood. Within Minutes My Car Was Completely Engulfed In Flames.

When Driving My highlander The Following Error Messages Appeared, Error Keeping The Start Button Pressed Will Cause An Emergency Stop. I Dismissed This. Then It Popped Up A Message That Car Cannot Drive While Brake And Accelerator Are Pressed Simultaneously. I Lost Ability To Accelerate So Tried To Pull Of Busy Road, Pressing The Brake Pedal Restored Acceleration. Then When I Stopped In Traffic Or At Lights The Car Shut Itself Down And Had To Be Restarted. These Error Messages Kept Coming On While I Drove To The Dealer. I Switched Off The Car At The Shop And It Wouldnt Repeat The Problem, No Codes Have Been Recorded By The Vehicles Computer Because The Check Engine Light Never Came On. toyota And The Dealership Want To Wait Until It Happens Again. Since It Happened Before, Also While It Was Driving I Am Uncomfortable As It Is A Safety Concern. I Don’t Want It To Happen On A Busy Highway. I Believe The Intelligent Power Module Of The Car Is Shorting Out And Causing The Car To Go Into Failsafe Mode And Shut Down Creating Hazardous Driving Conditions.

Mileage was 66670 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5TDJKRFH8FS. TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2015 problem was reported in WINCHESTER, MA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 30 mph.
