    I wasn't able to find the vacum hose and I had it in for service today and the techs couldn't find it either. I'm wondering if there is a connection between the transmission and the VSC.

    I have exactly the same problem. My vsc light comes on only when I put it in gear. The hose was left off and I replaced in on the air filter. Mt light still comes on. I had a scan that read: zero calib. of yaw sensor undone.

There is a vacuum hose by the airbox (air filter housing)that gets left ALL the time and will cause the VSC light to come on.I f you dont want to check it,I would take it back and nicely ask them to recheck under the hood for you as the VSC light is on and was not on previously. have a good day DB

01 toyota avalon vsc, vsc off, and parking brake light on

The VSC uses the brake system to function. So if the regular brake system is not working correctly the VSC will be disabled.
The brake warning light is for the parking brake as well as the hydraulic brake system. So it could be low on brake fluid or something else.

I was driving my car today the engine started to rev but the car would not accerlate. Later the engine light , trac light and vsc lights came on.

Sounds as though the transmission is slipping badly and caused the faults described.Check the transmission fluid level while the engine is running in park and the brake applied.Also check the color and smell of the fluid.It should be red and clear but dulls and turns brown as it gets dirty,if it is dark and smells burnt you have a serious problem.Probably only a rebuild or replacement trans will be your options if it is the latter.If you must continue to drive the car try to avoid over revving it to make it go faster as this will just burn out the trans quicker.Depends on the model it could be something else but rarely so.I hope this is of some help to you.

What is your Transmission Fluid Level? If Low, it could cause this signal.
When was the Transmission Fluid and Filter last changed? Was the correct fluid used?
I would have these changed as soon as possible.
There is a Transmission Temperature Sensor on 4-speed transmissions.. Check the Connection and Voltage on this Sensor.
Remove this sensor, clean, reinstall, and check to see if the light comes back on. If it does, remove and replace this sensor.

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.
