Most likely not a mechanical problem, like lose fuse or wire. Remember a “clear codes” allow it to start.
Got it, didn't catch that clearing codes allowed it to start. I read you didn't have a code to clear. Good luck!

I have seen several zero point methods. So I am not trying to be rude (so forgive me if it seems that way), but just checking if this is what you have? Also I realize you have a better setup than paperclips, just checking the sequence.



Locate the OBD port under the dash and recessed a bit. There may be a cap on it. From left to right, the top row of pins is 16-9, the bottom row is 8-1. You may notice that some of the pin holes are not used. This is normal.

Place two wires or paperclips (something electrically conductive and thick enough to stay in place) into Pins 4 and 14. Pin 14 is on the top and third from the left. Pin 4 is on the bottom and 4th from the right. It may help to tape the wires to the dash to prevent them from being pulled out during the procedure.

Park the 4Runner on a level surface and ensure the shift level is in PARK, the ignition is OFF, and that the truck remains still for the entire procedure.

Hold the wires together to create an electrical short between the pins.

Turn the ignition to ON.

In less than 8 seconds separate and connect the wires 4 or more times ending with them connected.

Turn the ignition OFF.

Separate the wires.

Turn the ignition ON. Verify the VSC warning lights go off after about 15 seconds.

After the VSC lights go off, wait at least 2 seconds and turn the ignition OFF.

Connect the wires.

Turn the ignition ON.

The VSC warning lights should stay on for about 4 seconds then start quickly blinking. This verifies that the Zero Point Calibration was successful.

After verifying the VSC lights are blinking, wait at least 2 seconds and turn the ignition OFF.

Remove the wires from the OBD port.

Take the 4Runner for a test drive to ensure the VSC lights stay off.

Thanks to all that read and replied, everything appears to back to normal. Like I mentioned before leaving the battery disconnected for a week and then touching both battery cables together ended the no start and even turned the charging light off!
The zero point calibration that I was following was a printout from Mitchell repair, and I wasn't connecting the pins in step nine while turning the ignition on. I went to the FSM like @Seasparrow recreated above.
The disheartening thing is all this was caused by an incorrectly wired trailer and none of the fuses or relays kept from causing problems with the ECM.
