SOURCE: Toyota Avalon 2006, I ahve a VSC indicator light

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.

SOURCE: 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

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.

What does "vsc" on dashboard lights toyota avalon mean?


The VSC is the Vehicle Stability Control. It appears there is a fault in the system somewhere. Also, if your Check Engine light is on, the VSC light will usually kick on as well. Fix whatever is causing your Check Engine light to come on first, and see if that also solves the VSC issus. I hope this helps! :) -Jason

Sounds like water intrusion into one or more Wheel Speed Sensors. You need to have it scanned and see which sensors are dropping out when they get wet. Then replace them or have them replaced.

I have a 2007 Toyota Avalon, 112,000. The check engine light and VSC light came on yesterday. No trouble starting it, no trouble driving and not running rough or skipping. The auto parts store plugged it...


I have the same issue with my 2007 Avalon XLS, 50,900 miles, but mine is ignition coil B. Had mine reset, as well and I came back on, along with the vsc and traction control light...I was told all three lights come on when the engine light pops on...ridiculous really!! I hope this **** is covered in my warranty as I have complete coverage...funny thing is I purchased the car looking for stability, had a 2000 dodge intrepid for ten years until she conked out on me a week before Christmas 2010! Now the 07' Avalon is acting up and I haven't had it for 6 months! Can anyone give us any explanation what these coil failures mean, and why my car feels like it's bucking when I'm driving it?? Thanks!!

The VSC, Check engine and, traction control all came on today at the same time for no apparent reason?


Anytime the Check Engine light comes on, you will find that the VSC and TRAC OFF lights come on as well. Supposedly, it's in order to lighten the load on the car's computer when things are going wrong. Find out what the Check Engine code is (for free at your local Autozone?), and get that taken care of before worrying too much about the VSC or TRAC OFF lights.

The abs/vsc/trac and check engine lights stay on. could this be a problem associated with emission control?


Its possible.

Whenever the check engine light comes on the VSC and Traction control will disable because they need the engine at 100% in order to function correctly. Since the ABS light is on I would have to wonder if it isn't an abs problem. Since the VSC and Traction control use the ABS sensors/system to function.

Or there is a problem with both the engine and the ABS.

The only way to know for sure is to have the PCM scanned and the ABS module to see what is goind on.
