SOURCE: what is a vsc warning light on a toyota estima

It stands for Vehicle Stability Control When the VSC system takes control it activiates stability correction. The slip indication light flashes while the buzzer activates. The VSC is able to operate at all times except when the centre differential is locked. When the centre differential locks, the VSC-OFF light in the combination meter illuminates to inform the driver that the VSC function has been turned OFF. The centre differential lock is designed for freeing the vehicle if it is stuck in mud for example, however it would be difficult for the vehicle to free itself if the engine output were reduced due to the operation of VSC. Therefore when the centre differential is locked, the VSC function is turned OFF.If a malfunction occurs in the VSC system, the VSC warning light illuminates to alert the driver. If the vehicle with VSC begins to oversteer or understeer because of an emergency avoidance measure, or by excessive speed in a corner, VSC will automatically activate. By adjusting the engine’s power output and braking each wheel independently, VSC helps to return the vehicle to a ‘zone of stable operation’..

SOURCE: have a warning light on the dash of my Toyota Estima Hybrid 2002. It's a red car with an exclamation mark in it. Flashes every now and then, then the engine switches off. Do you know what's ca

There are quite a few things that can cause this light to turn on and yes you are right it has something to do with the hybrid system, unfortunately this going to require that a suitable diagnostic scantool be connected that can communicate with all the onboard computers, this will retrieve any diagnostic codes that are stored, a technician can then start to diagnose the system based on the trouble code information.

Toyota celica dash board red light light comes on looks like a pan with steam symbls coming outt steaming pan is it the breaks or catalatic converter heating up


There is no warning light for catalytic converter heating uo. Brake light usually is a exclamation mark inside a circle inside parentheses. What you are describing sounds more like a temperature warning light for the cooling system.

2002 toyota prius warning light - car with exclamation mark


The light that looks like a car with an exclamation mark in the middle of it is the HYBRID WARNING light (see diagram below) You must scn the onboard computer network to determine why this light is coming on. You also need to scan your computer system to find out why the engine keeps dying. If the hybrid batteries are discharged, they must be properly recharged to prevent serious damage.

CAUTION: Read ALL service and warning lables in the engine compartment before attempting ANY type of service on a hybrid vehicle. The wiring harnesses that have ORANGE connectors are HIGH VOLTAGE connectors and can cause serious injury or death.

DO NOT touch any wiring harness or component that has a HIGH VOLTAGE warning label on it.

My recommendation is to tow the vehicle to a qualified hybrid repair center (preferably the dealer) and get it properly diagnosed and repaired. The high-tech, high voltage systems in this vehicle is nothing for anyone but a trained, certified technician to be messing with.
