SOURCE: replace front brake pad 2003 toyota 4 runner

Diagram is unnecessry.
Pull both front wheels
Work one at a time leaving the other for reference
Find the retention spring ... its a paperclip thickness wire spring... dislodge center retention loop and undo from both ends which engage brake pad retention rods.
Pull the rods out
Pull the old pads out... laying everything on the ground
Use scrap wooden wedges to pry between the rotor and the caliper ...inside and out until the calipers are fully withdrawn. Use the new pads to measure if they are far enough back.
Note... the brake fluid will have dropped in the master cylinder over many months of wear... do not fill it. When the calipers are pushed back they will fill the reservoir again... one wheel at a time.
Be sure to identify the correct pad based on what you took out and what is on the other side (if you screwed up the layout)
Make sure to take the old antisqueek backing plate from the old pad and place it on the new pad. They don't use lubricant on these anymore.
Replace the pads... the retention rods... then the retention spring
Do the other side
Then progressively step on the brake peddle until full tension is felt
Check the master cylinder reservoir... probably needs no additional fluid.
New pads will register in existing ridges in each disc in no time at all.
You should check the discs to see if they need to be replaced during this operation...using some calipers

SOURCE: toyota 2001 4 runner vsc lights on and trac

Those lights always come on whenever the check engine light is on.It could be from the gas cap not being tight enough or an air hose in the engine compartment coming loose. I recommend bringing your vehicle to someone that can read the codes and reset the lights for you. The codes will narrow down what the problem really is.

You either have a short some were or a vacum leak you need to, have your truck hooked up to a diagnostic machine to find out what is causing your problem.

SOURCE: 2001 toyota avalon engine and vsc light stays on

You have to use a scanner and pull the code out that is causing the check engine light to come on. whatever code/codes you find are probably related to vsc light.
Good luck and keep me posted

Toyota 2001, 4-runner, 158k...the check engine,VSC/TRAC, and TRAC OFF warning lights came on at the same time and have stayed on...what could be the problem?


VSC lights always go on during a "Check engine" period so just get the engine fault code and DIY or go to a TRUSTED mechanic (or someone you trust goes to).It is likely an emissions problem.

When the vsc trac light comes on my 2003 Toyota 4 Runner, what does that mean?


As long as it does'nt stay on it's doing what it's suposed to be doing which is saving you from going out of control. It'll come on more often if you drive like hell, run with low tracktion tires or worn out ones and if the air pressure is low. If your tires have over 80,000 miles on them even if the tread is still good their bad tires as their skating along and the trackstion system is working hard to keep the car under control. If the tires aren't al the same size it'll do it to. ( fronts worn out backs still with tread.) Mis matched tires too. Ifthe light stays on other light's are bound to be coming on too the ABS light the brake light, and even the engine light as their all involved in traction control.

Brake vsc off and abs lights are on


Krafty930 with brake, VSC off and ABS lights on. You share a common problem with many Toyota owners. My 2003 Sequioa has the same issue. There is no solution. Dealers will replace the air sensors and then the computer all for $2,500 - $3,500. This will not solve the issue. The internet has thousands of complaints re this problem, but Toyota has disowned the issue and declined resolution, even for vehicles under warranty. The lights drive me crazy and I still don't know if there is a functional problem, a wiring problem or a computer problem with the VSC system. To date, I have learned of no reports relating this problem to vehicular deaths, so I really am not holding my breath waiting for Toyota to provide a solution. Sorry that you share this problem, but perhaps my response will help to stop you from "spinning your wheels" too much trying to resolve this issue.

I have a 2001 toyota 4 runner and the trac light and vsc light stay in the off mode . How can I reset them?


check and replace front brakes > They wont look tooo worn but they are trust me ! just went through same ordeal 5 days ago . Also while your at it check your pistons on your calipers for free movement i had to replace both due to frozen pistons ! When done disconnect negative battery terminal for a few min. re connect start and drive for a few miles, lights should still be on, stop turn off ignition for a min. start car again and both lights should be off ! let me know,

My Toyota, 2001 4 Runner, has just had (within the last 45 miles driven) the VSC OFF light the VSC TRACTION light and the Check Engine light come on. What do I need to do and how did this...


any time your check engine light comes on it will turn off the vsc. you need to have your codes pulled for your check engine light and repair that issue then the vsc off light will go out as well. you can stop at your local parts store"autozone" and they will be able to pull your code once you have your code i can assist you in the proper repair
