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

The VSC and Check engine light turn on for lexus 1999 the cood is p0500


Toyotas and Lexus cars have some unique feaures. If your fuel cap is loose or the O2 sensors on the exhaust are faulty this results in an emission problem and the engine computer unit (ECU) engages the check engine light and disables the VSC (the VSC light comes on to warn you that it has been disabled). However you have p0500 code which says the car has no speed sensor signal. The seed sensor is located on the side of the final drive from the transmission and its job is to measure the speed of rotation of the output shaft. The ECU will compare the signals from this shaft along with the speed sensors in the wheel hubs. If there is a difference between these signals the VSC is engaged to apply braking effort to which ever wheel is slipping (running faster) than the other or that the transmission speed sensor would warrant.
So you either have an emission fault has fed back to the VSC and speed sensor missing (p0500) condition, or you have a faulty sped sensor which has tripped the VSC light and in turn the CEL.
Check your fuel filler cap is on tight, turn radio off and disconnect the negative lead to the battery for 5 minutes (this should clear the ECU memory of the code error). If p0500 error and CEL and VSC lights come back on then check the electrical connection to the speed sensor. Ensure it is clean and making a good contact, check the wiring for continuity. If everything else looks good consider changing the speed sensor.

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

I have the same problem like everyone lexus rx 300 with vsc light on dont know what to do


As the car ages the 02 sensors can clog and need replacing, however check your gas cap first to be sure it is tightly secured.
If they are fouled, the 02 sensors will trigger the check engine lights and vsc lights to come on. An exhaust leak can also give a misread. The problem code will identify the suspect are and depending on location this can be as easy a fix as changing a spark plug, but you will have to find someone with a code reading device to determine what area is the problem.
On occaison you will also have a sticking throttle body mechanism at the back end of the large rubber sorkle under the hood. This area has a butter fly valve like an old carb which can stick and cause idling issues as well. You can sremove the snorkel and look inside to see the mechanism, then spray clean with carb cleaner while idling.
Changing one 02 sensor may cause the VSC light to come on again as the system readjust your fuel ratio mixture. Be patient and pay attention to the readings before changing all the sensors randomly.

2004 lexus rx330 what does vsc light indicate


VSC is Vehicle Stability Control. This is and electronic sensing which monitors and combines performance of braking, wheel slippage and handling, ect.
If this light comes on along with check engine light, it can be caused by a loose gas cap or faulty o2 sensor.

Lexus 2003 RXx300 check engine light & VSC light on..told it was


Yes it could be other problem but the 02 sensor is not the same as the VSC vechilce speed control. You may have two problems. The 02 Sensor should not be more than $75.00 and a half our labor at most. If it is something else it would or could get very expensive. The reason the light comeson is it's has a emmison problem.

I recieved the following Warning lights: VSC and Engine Check


You have an issue with the engine. The other lights come on when the Check Engine light comes on. The most common reason for the Ck Engine light on is a loose gas cap. If the cap is tight, you will need to find someone who can scan the car's ECU and give you the DTC code. Without the code, we cannot provide any more ionfor at this time.Get the code and get back to us; then we can solve the problem.
