First thing you have to make sure that the cooling fan are working,not the a/c fan. Make sure all the hoses are the same temp. If not the thermostat most likely it my be the water pump

VSC and trac off, and check engine lights on

If the check engine light is on it will usually disable the traction and VSC as a safety feature built into the vehicles computer program. Have the codes scanned to determine what the computer has stored in its memory as a fault resulting in these lights to be illuminated and repair as necessary. Sometimes it may be an intermittant issue causing this problem and just clearing the codes will reset all the lights and continue driving to see if the problem re-occurs. If it does, have the vehicle serviced for the problem

I was driving my 2007 acura rdx when I noticed the sh-awd light on. I then saw the check engine light on. Later when I turned my car on again the check engine light was still on, not the sh-awd light. ...

The SH AWD uses electromagnetic clutch in the back drive axle to change the power distribution to the rear wheels. It would have nothing to do with the P0171 error. What TPMS valve stem was bad? Because this could be a clue to what the problem is. If a rear tire is having issues it could cause the sensor to make adjustments to the system to compensate for the tire. The person that changed the TPMS might have also caused the issue when they worked on the tires.

VSC warning light and check engine code 786 on Lexus 2002 RX300

The VSC warning light, Trac Off and check engine is probably an easy fix. If you look under the air filter/cleaner box there is probably a rubber hose that has been disconnected from a steel line. This is common if you have had the oil changed recently, the tech will check the ail filter and doesn't realize the hose has been disconnected.

99 LS400, VSC light goes on intermittently on start up.

Doubtful it's an intermittent electrical problem. Far more likely you've got a wheel speed sensor issue. Since VSC gets all it's information from the ABS system, start by pulling the trouble codes. I bet you'll see an ABS code. Read this post

Vsc vsc off check engine light on 2000 toyota avalon

I just had the same issue. Cost me $40.00 to find out my gas cap wasnt clicked all the way. He also said that after the error arises, simply closing the gas until it clicked may not have removed the error code from the computer. Not sure how, but you might have to reset the computer, maybe just pull the battery?
