Question
I have a Toyota 2007 Tundra with 136,000 miles, v8 4.7liter, and automatic. The check engine and track lights came on as well as the VSC. Diagnostic testing came up with a C1201 code.  What can I do to get these codes cleared?

Answer
Hello, that code is related to the VSC system, it means there is no communication with the engine control computer, you will get this code as long as the check engine light is on so the first thing is to retrieve the codes that made the check engine light turn on, the other codes will clear as soon as the engine light cause is fixed, all I need at this time are the check engine light codes. These start with a 'P'and some numbers like P0300.
