    Weird. My alignment shop ran a diagnostic and was able to tell me exactly what the issue was. Originally they thought they needed to recalibrate the steering angle but then later their diagnostic found it was a pinched abs line. I’d take it to the dealership and just see if they can diagnose the issue and go from there. If still under warranty they shouldn’t charge just to figure out what the issue is. When I took mine to the dealership initially and asked questions, they did want 230 bucks to simply recalibrate the VSC. I just left at that point and thank goodness since that wasn’t even the issue.

    Dealer wanted $160.00 to check fault codes. Bent a paper clip and reset in less then 5 min. On my 15 Taco.

    I just re-calibrated my vsc... have had the vsc and ABS lights on for around a week after I spun the tires hard in a slick part of my property. Worked, lights are out now...hopefully they stay that way. Thanks for the helpful post!

    Well, I made it about 250 feet before the lights came back on. Guess it may be a sensor messed up. ? Any more ideas before I take it to get it looked at?

    Lots of variables. Just get it looked at. Could be a bad sensor. Could be it wasnt recalibrated in sequence correctly.
