SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my vsc trac warning light and check engine light went on

Please, make your mechanic check the ABS computer. My RAV4 did the same thing, but the mechanical components were alright. After a while, I almost fell off a cliff because my brakes stopped responding properly. When further checked, my mechanic discovered that the ABS computer was damaged. The part alone costs a whooping $3 thousand bucks, not including labor. So, beware and take precautions. Your life may be endangered.

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.

Vsc, engine and track off light are on the dash board, what could this indicate?


VSC is for "Variable Slip Control" and TRAC is for "Traction Control". Your car is equipped with an antilock brake control system that is also equipped with VSC and TRAC. If these lights are staying on all the time, it is an indication that there is a malfunction in the system and your car will not function properly in the event that you get into a situation where evasive maneuvers are needed and/or slippery conditions could cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

SYSTEM OUTLINE

The vehicle could be in an extreme over steering or under steering tendency due to unexpected accidents, road conditions, vehicle speed, or by other external factors. In such a case, this system automatically controls the engine output and the braking to each wheel, to decrease the extreme over steering and under steering.

  • To decrease extreme over steering tendency When the system determines that the over steering tendency is large, the system applies brakes to the outer wheels according to the degree of over steering, and creates a moment towards the outer side of the vehicle, to decrease the tendency of over steering. Also, when the brakes are applied, the vehicle speed decreases while the stability increases.
  • To decrease extreme under steering tendency When the system determines that the under steering tendency is large, the system applies brakes to the front or rear wheels according to the degree of under steering, to decrease the tendency of under steering.
  • VSC OFF SW The SW to send the VSC system into OFF mode. When the SW is pushed after starting the engine, the system will be in OFF mode, and the VSC off indicator light will turn on. When the SW is pushed again, the system will be in standby mode. When the engine is stopped and re-started, regardless of the VSC OFF SW, the system will be in standby mode.
Information to the driver
The VSC system informs the driver when the tire grip is about to exceed its grip capacity, by blinking the slip indicator light and turning on the buzzer. Accordingly, the driver is informed to drive more gently.

**************************************************************************************************************************
Diagnosis of this problem needs to begin with a scan of your VSC and Traction Control and ABS control modules to retrieve fault codes. It could be anything as simple and painless as a malfunctioning Wheel Speed Sensor, or something as expensive as a damaged Hydraulic Control Unit.

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.

Lexus RX300 engine light n VSC light comes on


VSC means Vehicle Stability Control.

It comes on when the sensor send a signal that the vehicle is not stable on the ground.....check the wheel balancing and alignment and the air pressure of your tires too.

Good luck.

Shaking with engine light and VSC Off lights turned on


If just found this on another forum:

A few days ago I started the Cruiser and had 4 indicators stay lit.
They were the CHECK ENGINE...SLIP INDICATOR..VSC TRAC..VSC OFF.
Didnt noticed any change in driving and 4-wheel drive is still working.
I removed the negative cable from the battery and the same indicator lights have NOT come back. Everything is back to normal as far as warning lights go. Should I take it in to the service center and have it checked.
Or should I wait to take it in, if it does it again?
