Default zero point calibration 03-04, VSC and TRAC light

Figured I'd post this to make it a bit easier to search, since I had a hard time finding it.

The 03-04 use different pins that need to be shorted than any of the 05+ runners. You need TSB BR005-03. The TSB is attached.

The procedure is the same just different pins.

Please help.

So i honestly don't remember when or what caused my lights to come on, but they have been on for the past 8-9 months.

I tried this a little while ago, maybe 30 minutes. I followed the directions of TSB BR005-03 (I have a 2003 SR5 2WD V8) and I found that TSB On Toyota 120, and according to what I read since I have a 2003 I have the older protocol (the ISO instead of the CAN) and that is what TSB BR005-03's directions use, from what I understand.

Now after shorting it 4 times within 8 seconds, its the ABS light that flashes, not the VSC. The Trac light goes off.

Can someone tell me why it is the ABS light and not the VSC? After going through, turning it off after disconnecting, and turning it back in, off and reconnecting, the ABS light is the one quick flashing, when it should be the VSC.

PLEASE HELP! Any & all help is appreciated.

Default Worked like a charm 04 Toyota 4Runner SR5

I was lucky enough to find a 04 Toyota 4Runner with only 89K miles for a great price. Had the vehicle couple months and the VSC Trac and VSC lights started coming on but did not stay on as well as the ABS (was even getting Shift lock in park but could unlock by pumping brakes couple of times). Took to have brakes checked and they hooked up to computer to see if there were any error codes only to find none. After that day seems that the VSC Trac and VSC lights would come on and stay on. Did research and decided to start with changing the Brake Switch which was easy and cheap fix myself but still VSC Trac and VSC lights stayed on. Performed these steps for this zero point calibration with paperclips and now all is back to normal. No more lights.

Thank you for sharing

It happened to my 2007 SE on a cold 31 morning. I tried the paperclip things over and over. I finally pulled the negative battery lead and cleaned my SE rims for a while. that did it. back to normal. (forgot to check my radio stations).
