Error Code: C0278/11
Open in ABS Solenoid Relay Circuit
Check/ repair/ replace:
1. ABS2/VSC2 fuse
2. Wire harness (+BS)

SOURCE: How do I adjust the height of headlights on a 1998 Landcruiser?

on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.

If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.

If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

Service 4x4 light is on...2000 gmc jimmy...replaced the switch on dash but nothing works..what is my next step to fix issue?

Two speed automatic or is it two speed selectable ? Either case the first thing would be have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Both are computer controlled .
DTC B2725 ATC Mode Switch Circuit Malfunction
DTC C0300 Rear Speed Sensor Malfunction
DTC C0305 Front Speed Sensor Malfunction
DTC C0308 Motor A/B Circuit Low
DTC C0309 Motor A/B Circuit High
DTC C0310 Motor A/B Circuit Open
DTC C0315 Motor Ground Circuit Open
DTC C0323 T-Case Lock Circuit Low
DTC C0324 T-Case Lock Circuit High
DTC C0327 Encoder Circuit Malfunction
DTC C0362 4LO Discrete Output Circuit High
DTC C0367 Front Axle Control Circuit High
DTC C0374 General System Malfunction
DTC C0376 Front/Rear Shaft Speed Mismatch
DTC C0387 Unable to Perform Shift
DTC C0550 ECU Malfunction
DTC C0611 VIN Information Error

This for the two speed selectable
The transfer case shift control module normally has battery voltage supplied to it at all times through the battery positive voltage circuit (CKT 40). When the ignition is ON, the transfer case shift control module conducts a self-test to determine if it retains the same memory it had when the ignition was last turned OFF. This self-test indicates whether the RAM standby power supply to the transfer case shift control module pin C6 was interrupted, which would result in clearing DTC's from memory. If the self-test fails the transfer case shift control module sets DTC 1.

You can check codes without a scan tool on this two speed selectable system . Do you know what the DLC is ? Under the steering wheel , connector to plug a scan tool into ?
Important: Check the transfer case shift control module for DTCs. The transfer case shift control module is not a class 2 device. DTCs are displayed on the transfer case shift control switch. Use the following four steps to obtain DTCs.
Turn OFF the ignition for 10 seconds.
Connect PIN 13 on the data link cable (DLC) to a ground. The DLC is located in the cab under the instrument panel on the driver's side.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Observe the transfer case shift control switch select buttons for flashing codes.
DTC 001
DTC 002
DTC 003
DTC 004

My 95 Landcruiser with 1FZ-FE engine runs but misses very badly, will not idle.

Sounds like a vacuum leak.

Search for it VERY CAREFULLY by spraying a shot of carb cleaner here and there. When it revs up or smooths out, you'll have located the leak.

Keep a fire extinguisher handy when doing this, and don't spray into electrical parts like the alternator or distributor!

This code is related to your skid control ecu, it may need to perform a zero point calibration, or more diagnostic involve, it is a must take to a dealer problem, do the right think safety first.

Check for trouble codes as a start.
Any testing needs to be done when the problem is happening. If you were to test the ignition circuit, you would want to do it when the engine had stalled-and when it wouldn't start right back up.
If you could isolate it to happening in one circuit- ignition circuit, charging circuit, fuel pump circuit, injector circuit-you would be a long way to finding what it is.
To test the ignition circuit, you check for spark, so buy an inexpensive spark tester from a parts store and carry it with you. Wait for the random stall. Quickly try to restart at least a couple of times-you want to test for spark when it doesn't want to start right back up. Then pull off a plug wire and hook up the tester, crank the engine and watch for spark-may need a helper-grab a bystander! If you have no spark, you have isolated it to the ignition circuit, very good, now think ecu, ignition module, ignition switch, crank position sensor, associated wiring and grounds...couldn't be the coils, plug wires, or spark plugs-it's intermittent-but just isolating it should give you some hope.
If your test does show spark, quickly try to restart the engine, if it starts the problem went away and you will have to wait for testing for another time. If it still won't start, at least you have eliminated the ignition system as the problem, ...make a plan B. I would dither-electrical problem, probably gas or ignition related, too random to be a pump motor, or the injector circuit-it could be a bad connection or ground in one of those circuits, though.
Start with the code check. Maybe you'll luck out and have a code to follow.

Blow ecu cruise control eat ecu control when turn on key

If there is another fuse for the cruise control, pull it out and try again. I'm thinking maybe you could disable the cruise control somehow, and see if that system is blowing the fuse. Could be some bad wiring somewhere in the wiring harness. Try to isolate it to a specific system or circuit.

I have a Honda Oddysey 1998, and in the scanner show the code P1607

P1607 Engine Control Module (ECM)/Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Internal Circuit Malfunction.

aquire the appropriate pinout diagram for your ecu's plugs. then proceed to verify each of the ecu's power wires have the correct voltage. then proceed to perform a continuity test on all ecu grounds. this means checking voltage from the ecu plug to the ground location that the wire goes to. you should find your problem somewhere within there if you have already swapped out with a KNOWN GOOD ecu.
