Hy.I'm Adrian.I have a lexus is250 from 2006 and I just changed the battery and apear the VSC CHEK LIGHT and ENGINE LIGHT.and a c1201 and p2118 error codes.please someone can help with some suggestin


Code P2118 throttle control motor is set when voltage to the motor gets below 4 volts, so perhaps this was set with old dead battery. code C1201 is a vague engine control code, and the VSC vehicle stability code is set anytime you hook up a scan tool other that the dealer's special unit. You must reset the zero point calibration for this to go away. Use your scan tool to erase all codes to see if any come back. This will not turn off the VSC light, however. Follow below procedure to reset zero point calibration.

Zero Point Calibration - "VSC" and "VSC Off" Lights - 2002 SC430 - SOLVED
________________________________________
Friends,
For the benefit of any 2002 Lexus SC430 owners, I'll post the following item dealing with "Zero Point Calibration".
After hours of troubleshooting, I came to the hypothesis that the instructions MIGHT be different from 2002 - 2005 and 2006 - 2010 models. Below are the instructions I followed and WORKED on my 2002 SC430.
If you receive the "VSC" and "VSC Off" lights on the dashboard after a visit to a mechanic (often an independent mechanic using non-Lexus ODBII equipment), this means your "Zero Point Calibration" has been erroneously reset by a non-Lexus specific ODBII tool. This might especially happen if your state requires state inspection via ODBII, and you take your Lexus to a no-name place (like a Jiffy Lube or something). Follow the steps described in Post #6 in this thread to resolve this issue:
http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-2...d-vsc-off.html
Note that where you see a reference to a tool called the "SST 09843--18040", substitute that "tool" for a simple jumper cable (such as a short speaker wire) or a paperclip.
Here is the relevant excerpt from the above thread:
"The solution consists of approximately 15 step .
NOTE:While performing the Zero Point Calibration, do not tilt, move or shake the vehicle.
The vehicle must remain in a stationary condition throughout the entire process.
Be sure to perform the procedure on a level surface with an inclination of less than 1%.
Explanation of symbols:
SST (4-inch wire)
DLC3 (OBD-II connector under the dash)
TS (on the top row,pin number 3)
CG (on the bottom row,pin number 5)
(See picture below)
1. Ensure the shift lever is in the ''P'' range.
2. Turn the ignition switch Off.
3. Using SST 09843--18040, repeat a cycle of short and open between terminals Ts and
CG of DLC3 4 times or more within 8 seconds (refer to the specific vehicle EWD for
TS and CG pin location in the DLC3).
4. Turn the ignition switch ON, do not start.
5. Verify that the VSC indicator light is lit indicating the recorded zero point is erased.
6. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
7. Be sure the terminals Ts and CG of DLC3 are disconnected.
8. Turn the ignition switch ON, do not start.
9. Check that the VSC warning light goes off about 15 seconds after the ignition switch
is turned ON.
10. After ensuring that the VSC warning light remains OFF for 2 seconds, turn the ignition
switch OFF.
11. Connect terminals Ts and CG of DLC3 using SST 09843--18040.
12. Turn the ignition switch ON, do not start.
13. After turning the ignition switch ON, check that the VSC warning light is lit for about
4 seconds and then starts quick blinking at 0.13 second intervals.
14. After ensuring the blinking of the VSC warning light for 2 seconds, turn the ignition
switch OFF.
15. Remove the SST from terminals Ts and CG of DLC3.
16. Drive the vehicle for at least 5 minutes to confirm Zero Point Calibration is complete."

What is the light stating vsc is off what is this


VSC is vehicle stability control system. Read codes with a GOOD scan tool for more information. On Toyota and Lexus cars, using a scan tool other that the dealer tool will trigger VSC off and VSC lights, which can be reset using a procedure of key off, shift to certain gears, key on etc. as follows:

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


you will need to hook up a scan tool, I know many parts stores will loan you one or let you use it in the parking lot, VSC could have something to do with a wheel mounted speed sensor, did you hit something? any noises, try this and see if it goes away
    • 1 Shut off the vehicle's engine and apply the parking brake to protect yourself while working on the vehicle.
    • 2 Open the vehicle's hood and examine the engine compartment. Locate the air filter box mounted to the left of the engine. The air filter box features a black exterior, square in shape, and a large ribbed intake hose.
    • 3 Check all of the small black vacuum lines surrounding the air filter box. Reconnect any disconnected or loose vacuum lines you find.
    • 4 Start the engine and drive the vehicle to clear the "VSC" warning light displayed on the dashboard. If the VSC light fails to go out after driving the vehicle normally, proceed to the next step.
    • 5 Park the vehicle, turn off the engine and set the parking brake. Open the vehicle's hood and disconnect the battery's negative cable for 15 seconds, using an appropriate size socket. Disconnecting the negative battery cable will reset the vehicle's computer and clear the "VSC" warning.

Check vsc system


veh, stable sustem
is the warning on all the time.
yes, get it serviced,
a shop will scan it and see the real errors not customer display weak messages.
they see, DTC errors, for brakes, ABS and other errors that cause VSC to fail, (vsc is last in the loop) so..
even basic brakes can be bad. bad pads, and other very simple things. get it scanned, or serviced.
