Unhappy 04 4-runner Transmisssion VSC Trac VSC off lights

I need some serious assistance I own a 04 SR5 4runner and I am in the army in germany. The germans do not make a 4 runner so dealer support is very limited. My 4runner check engine light, transmision light, vsc trac, vsc off lights are all on. The dealer has no clue. The codes C1201 and P0156 comes up in the computer. Can anyone please tell me what these codes are and provide some recommended solutions. The computer has been reset twice and the lights went off for about a week and now they are back on. This vehicle has only 9000 miles and I'm really frustrated. This is my first toyota and I think my last..

C1201 ABS Inlet Valve Coil LF Circuit Short To Ground
P0156 O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 2 Sensor 2)

Fix these two parts and then make sure you use a OBDii scan tool to clear the codes as this is the only way to reset it.

Any toyota dealership should be able to make these repairs as it should be all done under warranty.

I appreciate this, now I will have to see how long it will take this german dealer to get these parts.

Thanks

you'll want them to diagnose the points of these error codes as it could stem from a single item that is triggering these errors. I don't have my service manual on me as I'm at work but I'm sure any toyota dealer would be able to follow the instructions on the service manual and determine what steps they need to run thru to determine what the faulty item can be.

I've personally never seen these errors as I even had to look it up so hopefully they'll be able to figure out the exact cause of the problem based on these error codes and order the correct item associated w/ the errors.

Good luck

OK correction there is not a german spec 4runner for them to use as a guide or problems they have seen before.
