SOURCE: Check engine light is on

no such thing as a catalytic computer... there is a catalytic converter ... part of the exhaust system so they may now be "guessing" that it's an O2 sensor. take the car to autozone... they will scan the codes for free.... post the codes here tho the lads and lasses there are pretty clever and will probably tell you what the codes mean.

SOURCE: My ls460 has been standing

Hi

You have overcharged the power to the cars on board computer and confused it. Remove both battery connections and leave to stand overnight preferably, this in most cases resets the computer and will turn the lights off.

The thing is once you triggered them the computer is told to not turn them off without the help of a dealer. Removing the power source from the computer for a short time wont do anything as the car has a small battery within the ECU to keep it going, 24hrs is normally enough.

Hope that helps
Regards
Dan

2007. Why did check engine light and VSC message come on?


Your VSC system doesn't have anything to do with your gas cap, unfortunately. You're going to either need an OBD2 Scanner to read the messages for your check engine light or take it to a mechanic/dealership to read the code and reset that light. You can also go to Autozone if memory serves and borrow a scanner to see the codes. You can pick up scanners from amazon for 10-50 USD, or about 40 USD from Autozone. Your VSC system not working means that you're not going to have optimal stability while driving until you can get the system operational again. Note that since it's Toyota Proprietary, you will not be able to read the VSC codes with the scanner, just the standard check engine codes. If your vehicle's braking system still seems to work, it could be a sensor malfunction, but I would recommend you take your vehicle to a Toyota dealership (unfortunately) to see if they can find the fault. Don't let them BS you either... http://www.greenhybrid.com/forums/f49/check-vsc-system-warning-dealer-says-normal-display-20826/index2.html

2006 Highlander - Check engine light and VSC light on. What does this mean?


Many possibles, but first check gas cap for torn gasket or just being loose. The VSC light is related to emissions issue and can be leaking vac hose, bad purge valve and other such.

Vsc trac light


ask a real question
veh. stability control system
is this why is the light glowing?
did you read the operators guide, yet, no, then nows the time.
no year, ?
in general it will say, all cars
stop driving bad. (you doing skid on purpose?)
if it come back with good driving,
get it serviced. can be bad brakes too.

best answer (of the inane on the web)(a real tech answers)
If you haven't read your owner's manual on when the VSC light may normally be on and off, do that first. Then, if it's not functioning the way the owner's manual says it should and is indicating a VSC error condition, have the dealer read out the VSC error codes again. When the error code lamp is lit, that means there is a current code and fault in the VSC system. The dealer technician then follows a troubleshooting procedure for those error codes.


the lamp can warn of driving wrong
or if there is a problem , get your operators guide and read it.

if on ice, it might be normal. see?
if on ice and you drive like crazy, it might not be able to correct
crazy, so glows the lamp.

What does check vsc mean


It means Vehicle Stability Control, usually dealing with an advanced ABS (Anti-Lock Brake System). It that light/message is on, then you will not have ABS, it goes into "LIMP" mode and disables the system. Your conventional (normal) hydraulic brakes will not be affected at all. I would definitely have this problem checked out by the dealer.

VSC light is on


The VSC (Variable Skid Control) function is automatically activated by the onboard computer of the vehicle. When the light is on the system is activated. If the light remains on it means that you are constantly driving on road conditions where the computer thinks you are skidding or it has failed to deactivate for some reason. Possibly a malfunction with a sensor or computer. It is best you take the vehicle to a Toyota Dealer to have it checked out.

What does service stabletrak mean?


{: ) If you ever see the SERVICE STABILITRAK message, it means there may be a problem with your StabiliTrak® system. If you see this message, try to reset the system by performing the following: stop; turn off the engine; then start the engine again. If the SERVICE STABILITRAK message still comes on, it means there is a problem. You should see your GM dealer for service. The vehicle is safe to drive, however, you do not have the benefit of StabiliTrak®, so reduce your speed and drive accordingly. Press the select button to acknowledge this message and clear it from the DIC display

What does VSC stand for when light comes on?


If you are talking about the "VSC Off" light, it means that the button to disengage your cars Vehicle Stability/Skid Control" system is engaged. Press the VSC button, the system should reengage, and the light should turn off.
If you are talking about the other VSC light, it means that your car has been forced to take evasive action to avoid a dangerous situation. For example, if you are driving on an icy road, and take a turn too tight, the vehicle may be forced to apply pressure to one of the brakes to prevent the car from loosing control. In this situation the VSC indicator light will light up to alert you that the action was taken, and remind you to possibly slow down.
