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.

Testimonial: "Thanks a bunch!! Big help and I will do what was suggested to solve the problem. Thanks again."
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
