Vsc, engine and track off light are on the dash board, what could this indicate?


VSC is for "Variable Slip Control" and TRAC is for "Traction Control". Your car is equipped with an antilock brake control system that is also equipped with VSC and TRAC. If these lights are staying on all the time, it is an indication that there is a malfunction in the system and your car will not function properly in the event that you get into a situation where evasive maneuvers are needed and/or slippery conditions could cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

SYSTEM OUTLINE

The vehicle could be in an extreme over steering or under steering tendency due to unexpected accidents, road conditions, vehicle speed, or by other external factors. In such a case, this system automatically controls the engine output and the braking to each wheel, to decrease the extreme over steering and under steering.

  • To decrease extreme over steering tendency When the system determines that the over steering tendency is large, the system applies brakes to the outer wheels according to the degree of over steering, and creates a moment towards the outer side of the vehicle, to decrease the tendency of over steering. Also, when the brakes are applied, the vehicle speed decreases while the stability increases.
  • To decrease extreme under steering tendency When the system determines that the under steering tendency is large, the system applies brakes to the front or rear wheels according to the degree of under steering, to decrease the tendency of under steering.
  • VSC OFF SW The SW to send the VSC system into OFF mode. When the SW is pushed after starting the engine, the system will be in OFF mode, and the VSC off indicator light will turn on. When the SW is pushed again, the system will be in standby mode. When the engine is stopped and re-started, regardless of the VSC OFF SW, the system will be in standby mode.
Information to the driver
The VSC system informs the driver when the tire grip is about to exceed its grip capacity, by blinking the slip indicator light and turning on the buzzer. Accordingly, the driver is informed to drive more gently.

**************************************************************************************************************************
Diagnosis of this problem needs to begin with a scan of your VSC and Traction Control and ABS control modules to retrieve fault codes. It could be anything as simple and painless as a malfunctioning Wheel Speed Sensor, or something as expensive as a damaged Hydraulic Control Unit.

The vsc trac and vsc off, plus the check engine just came up on the dash board. What do I do to make them disappear? Its a toyoto 4runner 2004.


For some reason on Toyota and some Lexus vehicles certain check engine light CEL issues also result in the ECU lighting up the vsc trac and vsc off lights. The ECU actually switches these anti skid and anti lock brake systems off and the lights are to remind you that they are disabled. 1) Check that the fuel cap is on securely 2) Check the oxygen sensors on the exhaust, check that connections are clean and there are no missing wires. 3) Have someone check the on-board diagnostic codes if the CEL is still on

HOW TO RESET TRAC OFF AND VSC INDICATOR FOR 4 RUNNER 2004


VSC and trac off,will generally be reset with a readout tool plugged in under dash, knee level drivers side.
When these lighst come on together it is often a sign of improper air fuel mixture, sometimes as a result of running extremely low on fuel or leaving a gas cap loose.
It may also be a symptom of a clogged O2 sensor in one of 3 locations. When resetting the LEDs a readout will analise the cause.
