Hi, my name is ***** ***** you use factory toyota gas cap, or an after market one?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Don't know. Purchased cap from the inspection station.

Would that affect the CDC?
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Sorry, the vsc

Yes, the vsc light will come n anytime a code is set, if it was a aftermarket, then this is your problem, they dont seal good, and will cause the light, you need to have a factory Toyota gas cap on these,Tim

Okay. Thank you for your help. However, if we purchase a Toyota gas cap & the light doesn't go off......then what?
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Are you there?

I am sorry, I was off when you replied last, if the light was not on before the cap was replaced, then yes, the cap will fix it, we have not had good luck with aftermarket caps on these,Tim
