How to turn off the VSC/Traction/check engine lights?

My Lexus es350 2007 has the lights "check VSC, Check engine, and Traction" on and I do not know how to shut them off. How can you turn them off? Some people said the gas cap is loose. I tight it up but the lights still on.

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.

SOURCE: Toyota Avalon 2006, I ahve a VSC indicator light

VSC is Vehicle Skid Control. The system is usually on, but when you turn it off (on my mother's 01 Avalon, it's on the knee bolster, below and to the right of the steering column), the indicator comes on in the cluster to let you know it's turned off - it's just a reminder to you that you don't have that safety net activated. The way the car is set up, even if you turn it off, when you shut down the engine and then restart it later, the system is rearmed automatically.

What I'm thinking is, since you've obviously had the engine on and off and the VSC OFF and TC OFF warnings are still illuminated, you probably have a problem with either an ABS sensor, a yaw sensor, or something related to those, as those systems rely on a bunch of sensors to work. If they have failed, it should illuminate the check-engine light. Stop at Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and have them scan the car's computer (it's free). They'll give you a list of the fault codes that come up. If you post them up here, I can define them for you and help you solve the problem - just post them as a reply or follow-up on this posting.

SOURCE: check engine code "P0446 Evap Control System Vent Control Circ"

Unfortunately, this code has nothing to do with the gas cap....
A code P0446 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

  • Faulty vent valve
  • Open, short or excessive resistance on Vent valve control circuit
  • Blockage of vent valve
  • Bad PCM
Here are some things you could try to fix it:
  • Replace Vent valve
  • Repair open, short, or resistance problem in control circuit
  • Repair open, or short, or resistance problem in power circuit
  • Replace PCM

How do I reset the check engine vsc and traction light on a 2008 lexus es350


You would need to erase the trouble codes with a scanner or code reader to make the light go off. Then if the problem is fixed and no codes are set, the light should stay off.

Check engine light needs to be repaired 1st. VSC is disabled in the meantime. Your local Checker or Auto zone can help with a code pull.

Getting message CHECK VSC with engine warning and traction lights on permanently.


Whenever the check engine light comes on it also turns on the trac and the vsc, if figures the trac and vsc can not operate properly if the engine is not running correctly, when check eng light turns off the rest will also, the first thing to do is have the computer scanned, there will be stored codes, these codes will tell you where the problem is, many auto part stores will scan it and give you the codes, if you get the codes i could help you further good luck.

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 ?
