#1 of 5 Resetting the VSC code
May 26, 2011 (10:00 am)
Does anyone know, on a 2000 Avalon, how to reset the VSC code, or warning light. The code reader is saying that the problem is the oxygen sensors, which were replaced a month ago.
I can't find any literature online to say how to reset this code.
I apprecuate any help,

Sorry can't help, but I would like to know which reader you are using and if you'd recomend it.

I assume that at the moment you have CEL and a VSC fault indicator illuminated...
The VSC light is simply a default arising out of the CEL.
The oxygen sesnor code does not of necessaty indicate a faulty oxygen sensor, it might mean that there is a fault indicated by the oxygen sensor signal, leaking injector, for instance.

Code reader isn't much help in troubleshooting a fault if you do not have access to a possible fault table/chart.

That was actually the reader used by Auto Zone. I can't afford one and really don't need it. The Avalon is not my car, but my Mother's. I drive a 2004 Camry.
