Question about 2007 Toyota Camry
Although I'm not sure, my best guess is that the VSC light is merely and indication that the VSC system has passed its internal test during the transition to power on. It could also illumintate and remain illuminated if there were a problem with the VSC system.
The VSC is designed to kick in during and emergency maneuver. Chances are you are not going to be looking at that light in such a circumstance so it really doesn't matter if it comes on or not. Your system recorder would probably record the fact that it kicked in. You wouldn't know this unless you were involved inan accident and the dealer downloaded the information from the system recorder.
The VSC is Vehicle Stability Control. It also lets the car know when you are going to fast that you are about to loose grip of the tire.
try the simple things first. the vsc light is activated every time the check engine light goes on. Check engine light can go on for the simple things like gas cap not tight, wiper fluid is low, low brake fluid, and I think low coolant. Simple checks that anyone can do
Take off gas cap and turn back on and listen for ONE CLICK check to make sure it is tight, if not do it again!
Second, pop open the hood, (latch is adjacent to steering column on the left side at the bottom of the dash (two latches one is gas the other hood). Take a small crescent wrench and loosen positive terminal bolt from battery (six to seven turns should do it)
take it off for 30 seconds then place it back on and tighten back on. Turn on engine, if lights did not go off, get a diagnostic check to find the proper code, there are a myriad of problems from a loose electrical connection, to oxygen sensors to brakes, etc

I'm not sure about the Lexus, but Nissan and other vehicles with the VSC usually will be on until you can drive on a straight road for approximately 2-3 miles without stops and about the same speed during the reset process. The interstate or some type of hwy will reset this light once the vehicle has learned the Vehicle Stabilization Control in which is learned by the way you drive and enables the car to have stable control. Hope this helps out, if this doesn't work, I would take it in for more diagnostics.

go to auto zone, advanced autoparts, or a certified mechanic and ask if they can reset the codes, it should be free
