SOURCE: vsc vsc off check engine lights on

the reason the VSV light is on is because your engine light is on it is a safety reason when the check engine light comes on and a sertine code is set and it disables cruise control and traction control (VSV) you need to have the code pulled to see why the engine light came on then get back to me and i can pinpoint your problem and fix it my email is jagjeffery or contact me here at FIXYA

SOURCE: 2004 Toyota 4Runner, Regarding The VSC TRAC and VSC OFF lights

Check your switches for the VSC, some get bumped on (due to their location) and some get stuck in the "on"position.

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...

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.

What do the letters vsc mean on the dash

Is you vsc light on by itself, or is it on with a Check Engine Light as well. If it is just the VSC light then you need a Zero-Point calibration. This is supposed to be only done at a toyota/lexus dealer. They take out the VSC computer and run their diagnostics program and reset and configure(calibrate) your vehicles VSC. I personally would disconnect both battery terminals for at least an hour, even better overnight, this should allow enough time to have all the electricity drain completely from those computers. Hopefully this would reset everything. I would try this before going to the dealer, try to save some money. If it is the VSC and CEL(Check Engine Light), then you would have to get the codes read at AutoZone....they do this for free unlike the dealer and then post your codes up on this forum. Hope this helps.

My car is showing a message on the display. it shows ''Check VSC" what is the meaning of this message?

"vehicle skid control". If "check engine" light is on , it will set the "vsc" light. Have all "engine" and "abs" codes pulled.

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.
