Customer Question
VSC on and off...

VSC on and off lights are both on, plus the Traction control lights, plus the engine control lights. I have had the codes pulled twice and was told nothing is wrong. This only happens occasionally. Not sure what is going on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you happen to know the code? Have you tried to reset the computer?

No and no.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

4 Runner 2005 Limited

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Taken it to Jiffy Lube and to the Toyota Dealer. In both instances the lights were not on and no codes were indicated, but the next day the indicator lights were on again.

If the lights are on now can you get to the nearby auto parts store like AutoZone or advanced and see if they'll do a free code read in most states except California Virginia New York they do this is a free service that the lights are on there has to be a code set there.

No. This is my daughter's car and she is 75 miles away.

Is that something she will be able to retry or be able to do? Do you have the vehicle identification number so I can pull up the information that the dealer would have looked at when they had it in their shop?
