Customer Question

I need to calibrate my vsc/track in my sr5 2004 Toyota 4Runner. I just had the reason the check engine lights came on for it, but the calibration was not done. is this something I can do myself.. BTW, the motor is the 4.0L 6 cyl. automatic trans.
JA: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?
Customer: it stays on
JA: Are you fixing your 4Runner yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have not done anything yet, I wanted to figure things out before I did something that might damage it.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Do you have the specific code numbers set in the computer causing the check engine light to come on?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
All the codes that made the check engine light come on have been cleared... The light is no longer on.

Can you detail what exactly you need?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I would like to know if there is a simple way to do a 0-calibration for the VSC, to get the lights off, now that the check engine light is not on.
The Tester says that it is a 0 calibration that needs to be done to do this.

The best and easiest way to do the 0 point Calibration is with a scan tool. The jumper wire method in the DLC3 connector port where the scan tool plugs into use pin 4 CG to pin 12 TS and following the procedure spelled out in this TSB page 7 to 8 will work but is difficult and may take several attempts.
