ESC for Toyota Land Cruiser

Posted on 07 December, 2017

The VIA, (the Imported Motor Vehicle Industry Association), has been contacted by several members as to whether the 200 Series Toyota Land Cruiser has electronic stability control, (ESC). The VIA has found that to identify vehicle stability control, (VSC), which is recognised by the NZTA as ESC, the vehicle needs to be put into low ratio 4WD and moved before the warning “VSC OFF” will come up on the dashboard’s display. If this display comes up, the vehicle is ESC-equipped and compliant. For any questions on this or any other ESC-related issue, please contact Technical Manager Malcolm Yorston on 0800 VIA VIA (842 842) or email
