  1. I have a 2007, VX, 100 Series Land Cruiser wagon, it has just clicked on 150,000 kms and I don’t have the T/belt light on yet, but I do have the battery light, check engine light, VSC OFF, VRS VSC, all come on progressively and I watch the ampers of the battery decline very rapidly before the car dies within minutes. Funnily enough though, the battery is not draining, it appears to be full of charge so it needs resetting, involving the disconnection of the terminals and start over again. I only manage about 8kms every time this debacle occurs

    1. Hello Luke maybe is not the battery. The problem starts there but it can be something else.

  2. I need to reset my stability control off indicator for a 2008 Toyota Prius?
    Its the light.

    1. Hello Paul, if you mean how to disable Toyota Prius traction control you must follow this procedure.

      Step 1: Set the ignition switch to ON, not READY. How to switch ignition if you have a start/stop button you just press for 2 times the power button, without pressing the brake pedal.

      Step 2: While the transmission is still in park (P), push the gas pedal for 2 times.

      Step 3: Pull the parking brake to ensure that the vehicle it does not move when you follow this step. Put the transmission in neutral (N) and push the gas pedal 2 times.

      Step 4: Put the transmission back in park (P) and fully press the gas pedal 2 times. The car will display “!Car!” in the upper left corner of the display.

      Step 5: Push the brake pedal and turn the ignition switch to the start position, without going back to the ready position, to start the engine.

      If you fail to reset with this procedure retry the to reset but instead of pressing two times on the gas pedal in each step you have to press 3 times.

  3. Hi I have a 2005 100 series Sahara and the vsc light comes on going around corners and applies the brakes on the car! have you experienced this problem or know of a fix?
