Apparently, the most common cause is a loose gas tank cap. It has to be tightened until it clicks. Other, more serious faults can cause this indication, but the loose cap issue is widespread. Hopefully, that's all it is in your case!

What do the letters vsc mean on the dash

Is you vsc light on by itself, or is it on with a Check Engine Light as well. If it is just the VSC light then you need a Zero-Point calibration. This is supposed to be only done at a toyota/lexus dealer. They take out the VSC computer and run their diagnostics program and reset and configure(calibrate) your vehicles VSC. I personally would disconnect both battery terminals for at least an hour, even better overnight, this should allow enough time to have all the electricity drain completely from those computers. Hopefully this would reset everything. I would try this before going to the dealer, try to save some money. If it is the VSC and CEL(Check Engine Light), then you would have to get the codes read at AutoZone....they do this for free unlike the dealer and then post your codes up on this forum. Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 lexus ls 430 my check engine light came on with the vsc off, and exclamtion mark all at the same time and I don't know what that means?

Hi there:
When this comes on as it has it means: When the center differential is locked, VSC control turns off and the VSC OFF indicator illuminates. This is straight from the Lexus diagnostic chart.

The system is faulted in some way so you will need to have the fault memory read out, and then depending on what fault code or codes are stored will determine the type of diagnosis that will need to be performed.

A dealer would be your best bet to get the cause determined. Their scan tool, when hooked up to you vehicle will give them all of the information they need to rectify your condition. After the scan results are found, replacement parts or adjustments can be performed.

Hope this helps.

VSC light is on and my mechanic doesnt know where to start. Can you help??

That isn't a mechanic,seriously, get away from that shop

You have a VSC Light on your dash
Any light on your dash is an OBD2 Fault &
most likely a Code will be present

Been that way since 1980 thru 2012 model vehicles
That is 32 years. So no mechanic

You always start with code related issues first

A real mechanic would check for codes with a professional
scan tool & go to a trouble chart for your vehicle & work
on diagnosing that vehicle system (VSC)

If necessary ,component test a sensor or other part, before
even considering replacement based on a code alone

LEXUS LS 2004 Maint Reqd (Master warning light) how I can switch off after change the oil engine?

You can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or pull the fuse for an ECM or PCM fuse, but the best way is to visit any local repair shop. Most shops will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds.

Ask your local service center if they could reset the check engine light with a Check Engine Light Code Reader.

Warning light came on after I had to steer around

you may have damaged a wheel speed sensor. you need to have the vehicle scanned for fault codes. if some part of that system has failed it can be pinpointed thru the scan tool. you may also just need the code cleared.
