Slip Indicator Light

Hello,
My '08 Highlander is 6 weeks old and generally running beautifully. The other day, while driving up a gentle hill, that we take every day, on dry ground, the Slip Indicator Light starting flashing for no reason. Then a few days later it happened again on the highway, again nothing special going on, driving 50 mph, going straight, nothing remarkable and an annoying honking sound went off in my car. It stopped after 30 seconds but was wondering if anyone can guess what is going on with this car? It seems like a little glitch in the system to me, because in both cases there was nothing remarkable happening to set off alarms.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Gail

its just telling you that the wheels are slipping.. and it will automatically correct for it.. if the slip is very little the corrections gonna be small as well. so it may not be noticed

Thanks for your response Wonger, I just can't figure out why the wheels would start slipping when I am going straight at 20 mph on dry road. I am wondering if there is something going on with the wheels. I can understand if the roads are icy, or the car gets a little out of control at a high speed but this was the most mundane circumstances. Do you know if this is just a normal part of using the vehicle?

Slip indicator light stayed on in 09 Limited without 4WD with 6800 miles. Dealership had to replace yaw sensor free of charge since still under warranty.
