2001 Toyota Avalon VSC and ABS Light are on

This is my daughter's car and she called earlier today to say Public Safety at her college had been calling because her car alarm has been going off. She called later to say her VSC and ABS lights were on. The car seemed fine just wondering what the problem may be and she is heading home this upcoming weekend(May 8)and can it wait till she gets home.

    OK. Sounds like I should have her check it out before driving home(500 miles). Is this a problem for a Toyota dealer only?

    The VSC is Vehicle Stable Control and the ABS is Anti Lock Brake System. It should be fine for her to get home, but being a Toyota right now, I would be more concerned right now with all the program problems within the cars ECU.

My keyless entry on Toyota avalon 2001 stopped funtioning.non of the doors is working with remote. My car is showing check light and VSC/VSC OFF on dash board, the code is 0420. pls help me out


Have the remote checked. Remotes have batteries and will eventually go bad. In the worst case, you may need to buy a new remote and have it programmed.

01 toyota avalon vsc, vsc off, and parking brake light on


The VSC uses the brake system to function. So if the regular brake system is not working correctly the VSC will be disabled.
The brake warning light is for the parking brake as well as the hydraulic brake system. So it could be low on brake fluid or something else.

2001 toyota avalon engine and vsc light stays on


You have to use a scanner and pull the code out that is causing the check engine light to come on. whatever code/codes you find are probably related to vsc light.
Good luck and keep me posted

Toyota Avalon 2006, I ahve a VSC indicator light on, the Slip indicator/traction control system off light is on and a check engine light is on. Are they all related or seperate, and what does it mean when...


VSC is Vehicle Skid Control. The system is usually on, but when you turn it off (on my mother's 01 Avalon, it's on the knee bolster, below and to the right of the steering column), the indicator comes on in the cluster to let you know it's turned off - it's just a reminder to you that you don't have that safety net activated. The way the car is set up, even if you turn it off, when you shut down the engine and then restart it later, the system is rearmed automatically.

What I'm thinking is, since you've obviously had the engine on and off and the VSC OFF and TC OFF warnings are still illuminated, you probably have a problem with either an ABS sensor, a yaw sensor, or something related to those, as those systems rely on a bunch of sensors to work. If they have failed, it should illuminate the check-engine light. Stop at Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and have them scan the car's computer (it's free). They'll give you a list of the fault codes that come up. If you post them up here, I can define them for you and help you solve the problem - just post them as a reply or follow-up on this posting.

Vsc vsc off check engine lights on


Most major Auto Parts stores Advance/Auto Zone will get the diagnostics codes from the cars computer and tell you why the light is on and what the problem is if there is a problem.
