  • AUTO LSD system (two−wheel drive models).
  • Downhill assist control system (four−wheel drive models).
  • Hill−start assist control system.

The light will come on when the ignition key turned to “ON”, and will go off after a few seconds.

It is not a malfunction that the warning light may stay on for 60 seconds after the ignition key is turned to the “ON” position. Depressing the brake pedal repeatedly may turn on the lights. It is normal if they go out after a few seconds. If the light comes on while driving, the above mentioned systems do not work. However, as conventional braking operates when applied, there is no problem to continue your driving.

In the following cases, contact your Toyota dealer:

  • The warning light does not come on after the ignition key is turned to “ON”.
  • The warning light remains on after the ignition key is turned to “ON”.

  1. I see a lot of information but I never found where ths site tells you how to reset the VSC Trac warning light. The light on my 03 4Runner came on when Bank 1 sensor 1 O2 sensor went bad. It has been replaced and I need to reset the VSC Trac warning light. How is that function performed?

    1. Have you tried to disconnect the battery from the vehicle ? If you changed the sensor this is how to reset all light from the dashboard and so the error will not appear again.

  2. I was able to reset the VSC lights by performing a Zero Point Calibration. It was pretty easy , you can google it. You use 2 paper clips inserted into the OBD port. The lights have recently came back on after 2 months. Now I am understanding I may have low brake fluid.
