    In checking some of your suggestions, I discovered I do not have any brake lights. Where is this fuse located? The markings on the fuse blocks in the engine compartment are vague, and the ones in the passenger compartment are non existent. Thanks for whatever help you can give on this matter.

IT would be best to run a scanner and retrieve error codes if the computer detected any.

Try to reset the ECU by removing one of the battery terminals.

The solution may or may not be related to each other. This could be a speed sensor issue found on the front where your front drive shafts can be found. The cables may have come off or one may be faulty.

Reset the ECU again if the solution above did not work.

If solutions presented did not work, I strongly recommend to run a scanner to detect the error.

Thank you.

    This depends on the year of your car. The fuse can be within the box inside the engine bay. Better check all of the fuse and look for breaks. There should be another fuse located on the driver side under the dashboard. Another fuse for the ECU may be located near the center inside the dashboard for the EFI.

Hi, the reason the VSC and ABS lights came on the Dash is because there is a code stored in the computer system. Most likely there is an open circuit somewhere in the system and you just take your car to any auto zone around you to have the car scanned, the code/codes will be retrieved and interpreted to give the exact reason why the lights came one so you can fix it.

As concerned the car not shifting out of park, there are 2 things that come to mind. The brake switch is a signal to the shift lock solenoid. Make sure all fuses are good. If you have brake lights, most likely the switch is good.I would look at your fuses, make sure there good, and check to see if your shift lock solenoid is getting power. If it's getting power then you may need to get the shifter assemble. The shift solenoid is hard wired into the other devises on the shifter.

the parking brake is applied. If the vehicle is equipped with a M/T, ensure that the
parking brake is applied.
2. Turn the ignition switch ON.
3. Using the SST, repeat a cycle of short and open between terminals Ts and CG of
DLC3 4 times or more within 8 seconds (refer to the specific vehicle EWD for TS and
CG pin location in the DLC3).
4. Verify that the VSC indicator light is lit indicating the recorded zero point is erased.
5. Turn the ignition switch OFF.

2006 Highlander - Check engine light and VSC light on. What does this mean?


you will need to hook up a scan tool, I know many parts stores will loan you one or let you use it in the parking lot, VSC could have something to do with a wheel mounted speed sensor, did you hit something? any noises, try this and see if it goes away
    • 1 Shut off the vehicle's engine and apply the parking brake to protect yourself while working on the vehicle.
    • 2 Open the vehicle's hood and examine the engine compartment. Locate the air filter box mounted to the left of the engine. The air filter box features a black exterior, square in shape, and a large ribbed intake hose.
    • 3 Check all of the small black vacuum lines surrounding the air filter box. Reconnect any disconnected or loose vacuum lines you find.
    • 4 Start the engine and drive the vehicle to clear the "VSC" warning light displayed on the dashboard. If the VSC light fails to go out after driving the vehicle normally, proceed to the next step.
    • 5 Park the vehicle, turn off the engine and set the parking brake. Open the vehicle's hood and disconnect the battery's negative cable for 15 seconds, using an appropriate size socket. Disconnecting the negative battery cable will reset the vehicle's computer and clear the "VSC" warning.

Says shift to park to start and it's in park


I googles the vsc system problem and it led me to a answer for both of them for the vsc and the shift to park it could be caused by the torque inverter/converter if you google "vsc problem?" You will find the Toyota nation website and they are talking about this exact problem in that forum that will come up.

You can do the calibration by clicking Engine and ECT > > special function > > and then click "deceleration 0 point calibration" while you do that make sure that coolant temperature is 80 degrees Celcius, IGN switch is "ON" , engine "OFF" and your gear shift is on "P

Performing Zero Point Calibration WITHOUT using Diagnostic Computer
1. If the vehicle is equipped with A/T, ensure that the shift lever is in the "P" range and the parking brake is applied. If the vehicle is equipped with a M/T, ensure that the parking brake is applied.
2. Turn the ignition switch ON.
3. Using a paper clip or auto wire, repeat a cycle of short and open between terminals Ts and CG (Pin 12 and pin 4) of DLC3,(16 pin Data Link Connector located under the steering wheel side) 5times within 8 seconds.
4. Verify that the VSC indicator light is lit indicating the recorded zero point is erased.
5. Turn the ignition switch OFF.

Click sound when shifting gear and parking


The clicking noise could be related to the bigger problem with the abs/vsc actuator, this is a kind of common problem on the prius models, the actuator should be replaced, this is a very expensive part (around $2000) for the part only, while the warning light is on the traction control and abs are disabled, it will still brake normally.
