Likely cause is one of the wheel speed sensors is defective, a scan tool at the dealer can pin that down to the correct wheel or part that is making the light come on.

Battery overcharge

I would think that your vehicle has a voltage regulator built into the alternator, but I am not sure. I do not have alot of Jag experience. But this sounds like what your problem is. The voltage regulator is stuck and making the alternator put out full charge and wreaking havoc with your electrical system.

2001 cadillac deville service system stability

Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Stability service 2007 silverado

If you are saying the light is on, then what this means is that a fault has occurred in the stability control system and you need to have the system scanned for codes and then diagnosis run based on the fault codes read from the memory.

Esp light showing on my dash board ml350 2007 model

When this light comes on and stays on it means a fault has occurred in the Electronic stability control system and it has been shut off. The light will not go off until the problem is repaired, this requires a system scan to determine the fault code that was stored when the light was turned on by the computer control module.

Lexis RX300, how do you turn off VSC light

When this light is on it is to signal you that a fault has occurred in the Vehicle Stability Control system and the computer control module has switched it off. In order to get the light off the system must be scanned with a special electronic system scanner to read the fault code data. After the fault code is read you begin the process of diagnosis and repair of the part or circuit that is the reason for the light being tuned on.

Check engine light and vsc trac off lights stay on. Cannot turn svc off by pressing button on Dash

Hi, have you scanned the vehicle to see why your check engine light is on? IF no, you need to. Toyota/Lexus computer system illumniates both engine light and VSC lights whenver a fault occurs in either unit. VSC or stability control is like trac-control or ABS braking system. Get car scanned and make sure all computers are scanned for additional codes, repair them first reset lights and test drive. ON a side note, fixing check engine light will usually take VSC light away also, however sometimes the VSC system will glitch out and a Steering Angle relearn is necessary, it takes about 3mins to perform and a good quality scan tool with 2004 current software. Good Luck.

There is a symbol on the dash showing a circle with a traingle and and exclamation mark in the centre

This is the ASC indicator. It comes on when the system is turned off. To get the light out, turn the system back on by pushing the ASC(dsc) button on the console. It's located just ahead of the shift lever. ASC is the Automatic Stability Control system.
It's a traction control light. it warns whenever the system is turned on and the car senses a loss of traction. you can deactivate the system by pushing the ASD(dsc) button and holding. this light will illuminate to say: you may lose traction.
Can sometimes be activated by faulty brake(ABS) sensors,ABS pump,While checking ensure that your brake pads aren't worn right down.
If the light still stays up get your local service dealer to scan cars computer for fault code relating to which sensor is perhaps faulty.
I hope this helps you or get back with your findings

When the light esp comes up what does that mean. We have no manual

ESP is short for "Electronic Stability Program" this system aids in keeping the car under control if you are sliding or skidding, it is part of the ABS brake control system. When the light comes on and stays on this is to alert you to the fact a fault has occurred in the ESP system, if the light just blinks and then goes off that means the system was activated due to excessive wheel slip being sensed and is normal. If the light is on and stays on a fault code is set in the systems control computer, the Suzuki dealer has a special electronic systems scanner that can read what fault is keeping the light on in the form of a code.

What is VSC and what makes it light up on dash

The best advice I can give is go to google and type in vsc Toyota forum. They have had many problems with the VSC. If you change tires then you have to have the computer re calibrated. The forums will describe it and what it does, way better than I can.
