Drivers side located in the exhaust manifold. But before you replace it. Check for vacuum leaks. this will cause an 02 code. Also check that the wires are not burnt, touching the exhaust manifold,. Then you can unplug it and plug it in , some times they just have a bad connection. When you unplug it check the connection for corrosion. this can be a problem also. Just don't go by what the parts store guy tells you. they want to sell you parts, they don't care if they are right or not.

I have the same problem on my 2001 4Runner. I have been told and also researched that it has something to do with the fuel pressure and making sure the gas cap is on tight enough. The solution I have used...with minimal success...is to disconnect the battery which resets the VSC/traction/check engine light. Sometimes I can go two months without it coming back on and sometimes it comes back on in one day.

I wish Toyota would do a recall on this because it is more annoying that mechanically troublesome.

2001Toyota 4Runner with a 5VZ-FE has a timing belt. There are 4 camshafts and it is a bit of work to change it.

Replace the belt and see if that puts out the light. Sounds like belt is stretched enough that it's sliding through pulley when under load.

I have seen this a couple times. The last one I had would be running down the highway perfectly normal, thenyou could hit a bump or rough spot on the pavement, and the thing would start shaking violently, almost bad enough to loose control of the vehicle. The customer said that this started gradually and continued to get worse. Upon inspection of the rear suspension, I found that all 4 of the trailing arms that hold the differential in place had badly worn/loose bushings. Replacing all of the trailing arms fixed it. Toyota is really proud of their (junk) trailing arms - they cost the customer almost $200 each.

bridging wire one to two makes it live at fuses only....but does not ignite the headlights.

If you have changed convertors it sounds like it is getting either not enough fuel or too much fuel.
Also check for vacuum leaks they can cause a lean condition as well.

Since it is turning your traction control off I would have to say yes it is something in the transmission. Unfortunately there is no easy way to troubleshoot this out. Check the transmission fluid levels to make sure they are at the proper level. If that is good you are left with having the transmission checked at a shop. This may not require a rebuild but it could certainly be expensive none the less. This could be a bad sensor in the TCM or a bad solenoid inside the transmission or differential. Either way it will require specialized test equipment to diagnose. A Transmission shop, one of the larger ones not a mom and pop operation, will have the computer test equipment to rapidly test these and narrow the problem down.

Is the clock display dead? There are 3 buttons on the clock that can be depressed to change hour, minute, and reset. If the display is dead (with ignition on) then your clock has failed internally. This is a very common issue with these and many other clocks of this era. I offer a repair service and removal instructions, check out www.autoclockrepair.com
