It it's like the ASC button/light on a BMW it means you have a problem with either you ABS, Traction Control or possibly one of the sensors. Sorry to say it but you should get it into a garage soon. When mine went on my BMW it was a wheel speed sensor and the car basically shut off the ABS and Traction Control as it's not working correctly. If you're not used to driving without these features it can lead to an intresting drive to say the least. I'd get it into a garage asap!!!

Hy.I'm Adrian.I have a lexus is250 from 2006 and I just changed the battery and apear the VSC CHEK LIGHT and ENGINE LIGHT.and a c1201 and p2118 error codes.please someone can help with some suggestin


Code P2118 throttle control motor is set when voltage to the motor gets below 4 volts, so perhaps this was set with old dead battery. code C1201 is a vague engine control code, and the VSC vehicle stability code is set anytime you hook up a scan tool other that the dealer's special unit. You must reset the zero point calibration for this to go away. Use your scan tool to erase all codes to see if any come back. This will not turn off the VSC light, however. Follow below procedure to reset zero point calibration.

Zero Point Calibration - "VSC" and "VSC Off" Lights - 2002 SC430 - SOLVED
________________________________________
Friends,
For the benefit of any 2002 Lexus SC430 owners, I'll post the following item dealing with "Zero Point Calibration".
After hours of troubleshooting, I came to the hypothesis that the instructions MIGHT be different from 2002 - 2005 and 2006 - 2010 models. Below are the instructions I followed and WORKED on my 2002 SC430.
If you receive the "VSC" and "VSC Off" lights on the dashboard after a visit to a mechanic (often an independent mechanic using non-Lexus ODBII equipment), this means your "Zero Point Calibration" has been erroneously reset by a non-Lexus specific ODBII tool. This might especially happen if your state requires state inspection via ODBII, and you take your Lexus to a no-name place (like a Jiffy Lube or something). Follow the steps described in Post #6 in this thread to resolve this issue:
http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-2...d-vsc-off.html
Note that where you see a reference to a tool called the "SST 09843--18040", substitute that "tool" for a simple jumper cable (such as a short speaker wire) or a paperclip.
Here is the relevant excerpt from the above thread:
"The solution consists of approximately 15 step .
NOTE:While performing the Zero Point Calibration, do not tilt, move or shake the vehicle.
The vehicle must remain in a stationary condition throughout the entire process.
Be sure to perform the procedure on a level surface with an inclination of less than 1%.
Explanation of symbols:
SST (4-inch wire)
DLC3 (OBD-II connector under the dash)
TS (on the top row,pin number 3)
CG (on the bottom row,pin number 5)
(See picture below)
1. Ensure the shift lever is in the ''P'' range.
2. Turn the ignition switch Off.
3. Using SST 09843--18040, repeat a cycle of short and open between terminals Ts and
CG of DLC3 4 times or more within 8 seconds (refer to the specific vehicle EWD for
TS and CG pin location in the DLC3).
4. Turn the ignition switch ON, do not start.
5. Verify that the VSC indicator light is lit indicating the recorded zero point is erased.
6. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
7. Be sure the terminals Ts and CG of DLC3 are disconnected.
8. Turn the ignition switch ON, do not start.
9. Check that the VSC warning light goes off about 15 seconds after the ignition switch
is turned ON.
10. After ensuring that the VSC warning light remains OFF for 2 seconds, turn the ignition
switch OFF.
11. Connect terminals Ts and CG of DLC3 using SST 09843--18040.
12. Turn the ignition switch ON, do not start.
13. After turning the ignition switch ON, check that the VSC warning light is lit for about
4 seconds and then starts quick blinking at 0.13 second intervals.
14. After ensuring the blinking of the VSC warning light for 2 seconds, turn the ignition
switch OFF.
15. Remove the SST from terminals Ts and CG of DLC3.
16. Drive the vehicle for at least 5 minutes to confirm Zero Point Calibration is complete."

What is the light stating vsc is off what is this


VSC is vehicle stability control system. Read codes with a GOOD scan tool for more information. On Toyota and Lexus cars, using a scan tool other that the dealer tool will trigger VSC off and VSC lights, which can be reset using a procedure of key off, shift to certain gears, key on etc. as follows:

Toyota kluger 1007 how to remedy vsc light on. vsc not on


Not sure if this will help, but my 2002 LEXUS sc430 had this issue, and it turns out that if you plug any scan tool other than the dealer unit in, it will cause this VSC lights to come on. It requires that you reset the "zero point calibration" for the skid system, which is done by first: have car on level ground with less than 1% slope in any direction. Next, follow these directions:

More than likley its your VSC computer (VSC Trac, VSC Off, E brake and ABS brake lights all lit). This problem has been sited on other Sequoias that had the TSB brake caliper/rotor upgrade (recall) and that more than likely the VSC software or computer was not updated to meet the demands of the newly installed brake upgrade.

Zero point calibration


Performing Zero Point Calibration using Diagnostic Computer.
The ECM memory should have been reset due to which the calibration of the accelerator pedal has been erased. Use a scan tool and calibrate deceleration sensor.
You can do the calibration by clicking Engine and ECT > > special function > > and then click "deceleration 0 point calibration" while you do that make sure that coolant temperature is 80 degrees Celcius, IGN switch is "ON" , engine "OFF" and your gear shift is on "P

Performing Zero Point Calibration WITHOUT using Diagnostic Computer
1. If the vehicle is equipped with A/T, ensure that the shift lever is in the "P" range and the parking brake is applied. If the vehicle is equipped with a M/T, ensure that the parking brake is applied.
2. Turn the ignition switch ON.
3. Using a paper clip or auto wire, repeat a cycle of short and open between terminals Ts and CG (Pin 12 and pin 4) of DLC3,(16 pin Data Link Connector located under the steering wheel side) 5times within 8 seconds.
4. Verify that the VSC indicator light is lit indicating the recorded zero point is erased.
5. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
6. Be sure the terminals Ts and CG of DLC3 are disconnected.

Doesn't matter what dash lights stay on after the motor starts,
you still have systems with a fault code that needs to be diagnosed

Shaking with engine light and VSC Off lights turned on


If just found this on another forum:

A few days ago I started the Cruiser and had 4 indicators stay lit.
They were the CHECK ENGINE...SLIP INDICATOR..VSC TRAC..VSC OFF.
Didnt noticed any change in driving and 4-wheel drive is still working.
I removed the negative cable from the battery and the same indicator lights have NOT come back. Everything is back to normal as far as warning lights go. Should I take it in to the service center and have it checked.
Or should I wait to take it in, if it does it again?
