    I am having a problem with my ABS and Slip Indicator light coming on simultaneously when the truck shakes going around a right turn or starting out on bumpy pavement. The light stays on until key is shut off. I understand there might be steering angle, roll and yaw sensors in the truck. Can anyone confirm that and give me their locations on the truck?

    That's not a Yaw sensor.

    I can take a picture of it tonight and prove it is... seeing as it has a nice sticker saying VSC Yaw Sensor

    ooh, nice find on the link. :thumbsup: When I saw it I was surprised. I would have expected Toyota to use a 3-axis sensor located near the CG of the truck.

    Hi all - I am having a similar problem with my 2011 PreRunner DC LB. When I go around a right hand, slightly bumpy turn, my DSC light comes on. You can feel the computer cut power and the ABS feels like it is coming into play. This only happens when going right. If I apply some pressure on the brakes, it does not happen. The brakes are no longer under warranty. I took the truck into the dealer and they found that the sensor in the master cylinder reservoir was faulty. I changed this and it did not help my issue.
    Have any of you seen, or heard of this problem?
