It is under the dash on the drivers side, and yes there are certain pins that if shorted will start quick test and give the codes stored in the PCM

Your ECM has detected a malfunction. Have the diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) read and determine what the problem is and have it corrected. Once corrected, the light should go off once the engine is running.

Hight beam wont come on

If you check to make sure your headlight switch connector is plugged in correctly and all other connections are made then the head light switch ( high beam portion) internal connections aren't making a good enough contact or are broken. In this case replace switch.

My Toyota Sienna shows VSC light on the broad. What Should I do?

Hi there,

If you've had your vehicle computer codes read and determined no issue with the VSC circuit, then you just need to cancel the warning light.

I've made up the following instructions, on how to clear VSC & TRAC Warning lights:

Zero Point Calibration of Yaw Rate and Deceleration Sensors Using Paper Clips (or jumper wires).

First, locate the 16-pin ODB II connector under the steering wheel (beneath the dash). The pins are numbered sequentially backwards from right to left (from the wide side of the connector looking at it from underneath).

Take two normal-sized paper clips (or suitable jumper wires). If using paper clips, straighten one edge of one of the paper clips. For the other, bend it open to a 90-degree angle (like an elbow).

Insert one paper clip/wire into pin # 14 (Ts), and the other paper clip/wire into pin # 4 (CG) of the OBD II connector - DO NOT allow the paper clips/wires to make contact at this point.
Refer to diagram below:


1. Ensure the shift lever is in "P" range.

2. Turn the ignition switch to "ON" (not start).

3. Momentarily touch the two paper clips/wires together (short) and separate again (open) - Repeat this process 5 times (within 8 seconds of turning ignition on).

Verify that the VSC indicator light is illuminated, indicating the Recorded Zero point is erased.

4. Turn the ignition switch "OFF".

5. Remove both paper clips/jumper wires from the OBD II connector.

6. Turn the ignition switch "ON" (not start) - wait until VSC warning light turns off (approx. 20 seconds), then wait 2 seconds.

7. Turn the ignition switch "OFF".

9. Re-insert paper clips/jumper wires to terminals #4 & #14 of the OBD II connector (as per above diagram).

10. Turn the ignition switch "ON" (not start) - VSC warning light should remain illuminated for 4 seconds, then start flashing at 0.13 second intervals.

12. After VSC warning light flashes for 2 seconds, turn the ignition switch "OFF".

13. Remove paper clips/jumper wires from the OBD II connector.

Drive your vehicle to confirm VSC & TRAC warning lights have been reset and no longer illuminate.

What is the diagnostic code?

96 and newer is the OBD-2 scanner to use, for 95 and older gm vehicles go to this site for the codes--- heres how to read codes on 95 and older, The ALDL connector is on the driver side of the car by the steering column. Short the A and B pins together, which is the two pins in the upper right hand section of the plug. Make sure the key is on, but the engine is off. That will make the check engine light flash whatever codes are stored in the computer. You can use a paper clip to short the pins together. Hope this helps. to read codes, 3 flashes of check engine light, then pause then 2 more flashes indicates problem code 32. thats how you read the codes. so have something to write them down so you can keep track of the codes.

Car problem

should be either to the left of steering colume under dash or to the right of colume under dash. Just start with one end of paper clip in the terminal to the right at the end and move the other end until the chk.engine light starts flashing, just make sure to turn key off each time you go to move the one end of paper clip and turn it back on each time to see if it flashes Now when light starts to flash you count how many times it flashes for example it will flash once than paus then flash twice quick witch is 12 and so on, or three fast paus and then two fast witch is 32 thats your codes.
