Question about 2008 Toyota Highlander
Hours after filling up with gas, the VSC off, TRAC and Check Engine light came on? My gas cap was tight. Approximately 3 years ago to date (2008-2009) same thing happened and the Vacuum Switch and Charcoal Canister was replaced. Could this be the same problem and do these two parts go bad often?

SOURCE: Check engine and VSC lights on
that the check engine light is on indicates a problem. that the light is not flashing indicates that the computer does not think that the problem is all that bad. without some other vehicle malfunction symptoms best advice i can give you is to take your vehicle to a place that has a code reader and see what codes it has stored. some car parts stores will retrieve the codes for free, idea being that the parts store can then sell you some parts to fix the problem. but you don't have to buy anything, you can just have them read the codes. some of the parts stores will give you a printout of the codes too. get the codes and you know what the computer is not liking, then you can make a more informed decision about what to do next. hope that helps.

Check your switches for the VSC, some get bumped on (due to their location) and some get stuck in the "on"position.

I have both lights on in my 2004 van also I have the engine light on. i took it to the dealer and they found the Yaw Rate Sensor (Vsc & TRAC) bad. The part is about$ 405 and is under the drivers seat. The other problems is the Catalyst System (engine light) about $1000 for parts.I have about 147,000 miles on my '04 and the problems started about 130,000.
