Any time your check engine light comes on it will turn off the vsc. you need to have your codes pulled for your check engine light and repair that issue then the vsc off light will go out as well. you can stop at your local parts store"autozone" and they will be able to pull your code once you have your code i can assist you in the proper repair

Toyota 2001, 4-runner, 158k...the check engine,VSC/TRAC, and TRAC OFF warning lights came on at the same time and have stayed on...what could be the problem?


VSC lights always go on during a "Check engine" period so just get the engine fault code and DIY or go to a TRUSTED mechanic (or someone you trust goes to).It is likely an emissions problem.

My 2001 TOYOTA SIENNA XLE is showing a P0420 code Problem? My Check engine light is on, My Traction Control light is now showing off? and my VSC(Vehicle Stability Control) Light is on too? After...


Exhaust Converter-- (PO 420) -- may be melted inside and restricted

That causes the O2 Codes

You will need to find out why it failed ,and correct,
or it will fail again

You will need to replace all the O2 Sensors, also

The Traction,VSC and so on, are other problems,that have to be
diagnosed

When the vsc trac light comes on my 2003 Toyota 4 Runner, what does that mean?


As long as it does'nt stay on it's doing what it's suposed to be doing which is saving you from going out of control. It'll come on more often if you drive like hell, run with low tracktion tires or worn out ones and if the air pressure is low. If your tires have over 80,000 miles on them even if the tread is still good their bad tires as their skating along and the trackstion system is working hard to keep the car under control. If the tires aren't al the same size it'll do it to. ( fronts worn out backs still with tread.) Mis matched tires too. Ifthe light stays on other light's are bound to be coming on too the ABS light the brake light, and even the engine light as their all involved in traction control.

2001 Toyota 4 Runner has Trac off vsc trac and check engine light on what can cause this


When the computer detects certain faults it will set the check engine light on along with the other lights you've explained. I've seen this on many toyota SUV's. Usually the codes set are oxygen sensor related. There really is no relation between the oxygen sensors and the traction control system but for some reason it disables it and sets the warning lights on. Have the computer scanned for codes at a shop or at a parts store such as autozone for free.

VSC Trac and VSC Off and Check Engine lights are on. The lights were reset last week and they have come back on. What is my problem most likely and what are the costs going to be?


The computer turns your traction control off when it sets the check engine light. Thats why VSC lights come on at the same time. Have the local parts store see what code you are getting to find the problem.
