    I have a 2006 4Runner with the 4.7L, and all of these lights are on my dash. I've tried doing the reset with the OBDII, but that didn't work. Any recommendations?

    Did you read the codes?

    No check engine light with those means that there is something wrong with the Vehicle Stability Control.

    Yes there is a CEL, but they have to do with the air injection system. I'm doing the bypass soon.

    Why didn't you say that?

    CEL will turn those lights on. Get the CEL to turn off and those should go away. TOYOTAs, when you have an engine issue, disable the traction systems for safety.

    I went with the Hewitt Tech. Placed the order yesterday, so hopefully it arrives at a decent time.

    Everything in the engine bay is mostly easy. Actually drivers side blockoff plate is a bit of a bitch. Best way i found was backing out the bolts, squeezing something thin in between the flanges and getting the plate in between, THEN sliding it into alignment. Just trying to shove it in place is not awesome. In the cab be sure to do some really good soldering at your ECU wires or else you will still show codes and engine act up... ask me how I know. And no, just using 3M splicing connectors is not adequate enough... ALSO ask how i know lol.

    Thank you for the tips! I will refrain from asking how you know haha. I can connect those dots.
