abs vsc off vsc trac lights on. Codes came up as follows. c1380, c1340, c1256, c1246, c1241, c123, c0278 one note before I recently lost the alternator and replaced it as well as the battery. don't drive it a lot usually garaged no off road driving. The code for the low or high voltage I suspect was from the regulator in the alternator. Could the low voltage have caused the abs problem?

I checked the brake lights at the back per code c1380 and they were not working. No brake lights. I suspect it is a brake switch and not related to the ABS problem

no should I try this first?
Toyota Mechanic: Mike, Auto Mechanic replied 4 months ago

Yes because you do have low voltage codes, I would do a reset and see what codes come back so we can see if we can narrow the diagnosing process down some.

ok Not sure if scanner is up yet needs a recharge but will try it
Toyota Mechanic: Mike, Auto Mechanic replied 4 months ago

Ok sounds good, after resetting if you notice its completely cleared, give it a quick spin around the block and see if the light does not come back on.
