I went out tonight to start my scion xa and the three lights stayed on check engine light, vsc, and trac off. I dont drive the car everywere but I drive it everyday without fail at least once around the neighborhood because I bought it as a second vehichle when needed. It has been raining everyday here in Houston Texas as usual and our yard is wet(not sure if that has something to do with it) just wondering why, it drove fine yesturday. An it is driving fine tonight, any suggestions would be much appreciated thank you

When a check engine light is triggered on toyotas "scions" the stability controle disables itself. So abs and vsc light will remain on till check engine light is fixed. Scan the car with any hand scanner or a free one at advance and post the code for more info.
Thank you

Probably a sensor is getting wet, triggering the ECU with the wrong information, therefor turning on some of the dashboard lights on.
Sometimes, a little bit of grease on the sensor keep the sensor from getting wet. If there is no light on in the dashboard when its dry, then that's your problem.

SOURCE: the Check Engine light, VSC light, and Trac light

On these cars and Toyotas also, if the engine computer sees an emissions problem, it will illuminate all of these lights. As long as the check engine light isn't flashing and it's not running funny, you should be ok to finish your trip. Keep in mind the traction control may not work if you were to get into a situation where it could be helpful. Recommend checking the gas cap to be sure it is tight, it should click 3 times minimum.

I have 2005 Toyota Scion xb.I left the lights on all day.I had to jump car off.Afterward the vsc light,trac off,and brake light came on.What's the problem ?


the problem is the jump start some how the power went too low and there was an misfire its common to happen in scions, all you have to do is get a scnner or go to autozone and have the pcm codes reset ok the reasson the vsc and brake lights come on after an episode is that this features get disabled for safety reason ok, so do this and one more thing get if any codes that may be in the pcm. have a great weekend!

THE VSC TRAC OFF & CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS CAME ON ....my friends say its no big deal and its common with all toyota cars buta am just not confortable driving in it anymur. please help.....


1. VSC means Vehicle Stability Control.

2. TRAC Off means Traction Controln is off

3. Check simply indicates that there is an issue being communicated from the onboard computer.

Take the car for a scan dear.

VSC, Trac off, and check engine lights are on


I took mine to the dealer to find out why the VSC, Trac off, and check engine lights are on. They said it is the camshaft position sensor, it retards the timing, and causes it to lose power when climbing. Also, 1 of every 30 to 50 scions have this problem. Sounds like it should be recalled for this. The cost of replacement is about $500 bucks. Get your dry belts and valve cover gaskets changed at the same time to avoid labor charges later. I couldn't believe the dealer charges $89 bucks an hour for labor these days, Rediculous. At least it comes with a a 12 month unlimited mileage warrenty.
