SOURCE: ABS and anti skid tracking control lights stay on in my BMW 523i

Unfortunately there are several possibilities that are common to causing the light to come on. I would suggest taking the car in to a dealer and having them read out the fault memory. Such possibilities are a failed speed sensor, a binding DSC/ACS actuator cable, or faulty DCS/ASC control unit. If you know how, you can disconnect the speed sensors, and check for voltage output across the the terminals inside the connector going to the speed sensor while rotating the wheel. A dealer should charge you about an 1hour fee to check out your system. Due to the cost of parts involved, I would recommend having it checked before just guessing.

SOURCE: message reads 'check VSC' with engine light on?

ur vsc light will come on whenever you have a check eng light on. best thing to do is bring ur car to a local and have them scan ur car. your car should still be under factory warranty any repairs wont cost u anything.

just from my experience a 2007 ES with a check eng light is most likely a faulty a/f sensor or a loose gas cap

SOURCE: What does the VSC light on the dash mean

VSC means Vehicle Stability Control. Take the car for a scan to ease your mind.

My car is showing a message on the display. it shows ''Check VSC" what is the meaning of this message?


"vehicle skid control". If "check engine" light is on , it will set the "vsc" light. Have all "engine" and "abs" codes pulled.

My VSC, VSC off and ABS light came on after I had m tie rods changed. I took it to get a diagnostic and they said the speed sensor was back on the right side. After I got the car back the car...


The ABS system measures wheel speed on each wheel. If one wheel is "seen" by the body computer as turning faster than the other 3 the ABS will apply brake pressure to that wheel to prevent a skid or spin.
Vehicle Stability Control uses the same equipment.
Interesting that your ABS was working before the repairs.

Had some body work done on my Lexus GX470 and when I got it back it was riding on the frame. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the height sensors. 24 miles later, the BRAKE, ABS, Both VSC lights...


sounds like you need a couple more sensors. Abs light/brake may be on due to abs wheel sensor. VSC would be a steering angle sensor. skid control has its own sensor. I assume your accident also involved the wheel or wheels (some type of impact or hard jarring). The sensors arent cheap and they are easy to fix, they need to step up and do the right thing

My lexus just quit working, it will crank but die when you put it in gear, the check engine light came on with a code of VSC any ideas. Thanks.


Saw this on a Lexus user club site ---
  • Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) senses the onset of loss of lateral traction and helps the driver stay on track. Input from four wheel-speed sensors, a yaw-rate (directional) sensor, a deceleration sensor, and a steering-wheel-angle sensor is communicated to the VSC computer. The system has the ability to reduce power and to control the brake actuator. Working with both ABS and TRAC, the VSC system helps the driver to compensate for loss of lateral traction, which can cause skids and loss of vehicle control. Lexus Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control.
However, it appears Lexus owners who have reported this sort of problem did not have to do anything to fix except - things like .. uncap gas cap and put it back, remove battery leads for about 10 minutes and put back, tighten air filter hose ...all wierd.

Have you checked your owner's manual ?

What does VSC stand for when light comes on?


If you are talking about the "VSC Off" light, it means that the button to disengage your cars Vehicle Stability/Skid Control" system is engaged. Press the VSC button, the system should reengage, and the light should turn off.
If you are talking about the other VSC light, it means that your car has been forced to take evasive action to avoid a dangerous situation. For example, if you are driving on an icy road, and take a turn too tight, the vehicle may be forced to apply pressure to one of the brakes to prevent the car from loosing control. In this situation the VSC indicator light will light up to alert you that the action was taken, and remind you to possibly slow down.

Loss of power with Check engine and VSC light on


There are several possible causes for the Check-Engine light coming on. First, it could be your oxygen sensors, PCV valve, dirty or clogged fuel filter or something as simple as a bad spark plug or loose spark plug wire. Also, contaminated fuel can also cause your loss of power and the subsequent light coming on.
