RSC light on and wont start

Hi, I'm helping my elderly disabled friend out trying to fix his 2010 explorer. As of now, it attempts to start but wont fire up. The RSC light is on and wont let me turn off the traction control. We have a code reader that let me erase the RSC code once and the car started and ran fine for a day or so but then the RSC light came on and once again won't let it start. We recently replaced the brake calipers, pads, and rotors on all 4 tires. Not sure if that had anything to do with the problem or not because it ran fine for a week after we did that work. I'm at a loss on where to go from here, so ANY help or thoughts on what might be causing the issue and/or how to resolve it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Whats the code? If you clear the code again will the car start?
