    I bought a used 2008 Prius that had a VSC light on. I went to my mechanic who scanned it and said that the yaw sensor wasn't functioning. He wasn't too familiar with Prius's and said he'd need to look into this further. I was wondering if this is something that can just be changed out and reset with an OBD2 scanner. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    You can find it under the center console. I'ts probably out of calibration and can be re calibrated with the proper scan tool.

    As mentioned, it's typically under the center console.
