VSC off light is on and so is the engine light

I have 2009 Vibe and the VSC off light keeps flashing. I tried pushing the button, but that doesn't do anything. As well, my engine light is also on. I just experienced the same problem.My 2009 Vibe just had its 12K mile service done and here I am 2 weeks later with a dashboard lit up like a Christmas tree.I'm taking the vehicle to the dealer tomorrow, but after what I've read here, I'm not too optimistic that there is a long-term fix.Is there a fix?

    Thanks for the advice. I will ask for the computer to be tested for the trouble codes. Definitely didn't mean to sound negative--just when I talked to the service manager today he had no idea what I was talking about and that didn't make me feel so great. This car is awesome and I want it to last a long, long time. Thanks again for the quick reply.

    the very 1st thing that has to be done is have the electronic control system computer tested for trouble codes. as far as long term fix don't be so darn negative, they haven't even tested the car yest, it maybe just a simple wire connector to a vss sensor.

Same problem with my brand new 2010 Vibe! They ran the diagnostic computer on it for over an hour but couldn't find what's wrong. I have to bring it back again after christmas... The VSC Off light flashes while the stabilitrack and emergency brake are on. It turns off for a while and then it turns on again.

Check Engine Light, VSC Light Flashing VSC OFF Off Light. Error Code-P0776 Pressure Control Solenoid B Performance or Stuck off. What do I need to repair this.

You need a transmission repair shop to drive this and perform a diagnosis but my gut says you are going to need a rebuild of the transmission. Do not drive this is you think the transmission is slipping it will burn up the clutch pack and then you will absolutely need it rebuilt, about a $4000.00 repair.

I'm having the same exact problem this morning. We had very bad weather that I drove through yesterday with no problems, then this morning the roads were clear and drive and suddenly all these lights came on.

Both the engine lights and the VSC warning light appeared on the dash simultaneoulsy this evening while driving - what might this be?

Had this happen to my '05 Vibe (Matrix evil clone) recently. Mechanic read & reset codes. The non-flashing Engine light showed 2 large emission leaks. The VSC could be any number of things. He said hopefully it was a false positive on the VSC... potentially expensive to fix. Lights stayed off for a couple weeks & are now back on. I'm planning on seeing him later today. Also, said stability light stayed off, it is still working. fwiw...

2007 lexus rx350 ,vsc light on and check engine light is flashing

First check and make sure your gas cap is tight, if this does not resolve the problem read below.
A vacuum hose has become disconnected, more than likely due to having your air filter replaced. The VSC and Check engine light typically don't come on until after 150-200 miles after the vacuum hose was pulled out.
The fix: on the right-hand-side of the engine compartment behind the big plastic housing that holds the air filter you will find a black rubber hose that is not connected to anything. Squeeze the finger clamp on the hose and slide the hose back onto the half inch nipple on the back of the air filter's plastic housing.
In order for the VSC and Check engine light to be turned off, you will need to open the fuse box, right-side of the engine compartment, and pull the 20 amp EFI fuse for 10 seconds. This will reset the system. The fuse location is marked on the lid of the fuse box, also I believe the EFI fuse is the only 20 amp fuse
. This will help. Thanks, please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
