Wow- just had the ck engine light come on due to a bad o2 sensor went to advance auto borrowed their code reader and reset all my codes. Every thing went fine except for the vsc lights light would not reset, I thought I had done something wrong... Perfect timing with this post, it worked like a charm no more lights! Thank you to all that made this post.

I have the same problem. Except mine isnt a low quality OBD reader. I've used this on over 30 cars and never had any issues but with this SC430 the traction control lights came on. Been on for 2 weeks now, I keep forgetting to try the method.

Except 1 problem: it looks like while both those lights are on i don't have traction control. I punched it half way while taking a left turn the tires spun out at least 20 feet. Pressing the traction button does nothing now.

Update: Used the provided method in the previous pages and threads. It worked for me too. What i'm curious to know is how on earth did these people figure it out

Just adding in a thank you and bumping this up so others might see this. What in the world did we do before the internet huh...
This one baffled me and without this list I would still be driving with this light on.

I have a version of TechStream (just google it) using an older netbook and a $25 cable from amazon and I suspect that the $25 cable isn't quite the quality of the $400 cable. The last time I checked for codes something might have happened like I pulled the cable out by accident without shutting off the car. Likely this caused the VSC light to come on.

Techstream didn't see any codes so I was baffled what to do but 5 minutes and a paperclip and my light was off again... Thanks Guys

I had the same issue and followed the steps and nada. Turns out that I was pushing the jumper at the wrong places, wrong end to be exact. Once I figured this out, the VSC flickered and it was gone. I will take it for a test drive later. The VSC and VSC OFF came on shortly after I had the car checked for emissions.

Thank you! I knew one of these days I will use this technique.

This works! I have no idea what I did, but I managed to turn the VSC light on by messing with my diagnostic tool (the official Toyota one, no less). Light on, but no codes...

I tried everything, and then, when nothing worked, very hesitantly, I jumped the reader like it says here. Voila! Light off...

thanks all!

I have made a permanent tool (jumper) and it is kept in a safe place, in case the VSC lights up again.

Mandy that is a great idea. I have custom bent paper clip in the console but always need to look at the socket picture I keep on my phone and struggle getting it the correct holes. I'll order a plug and wire it up to make it easy.
