You have an issue with the engine. The other lights come on when the Check Engine light comes on. The most common reason for the Ck Engine light on is a loose gas cap. If the cap is tight, you will need to find someone who can scan the car's ECU and give you the DTC code. Without the code, we cannot provide any more ionfor at this time.Get the code and get back to us; then we can solve the problem.

My car (06 GS430) began giving me more frequent "Check VSC" warnings. (Code P0455 in my case. Really glad I bought that OBDII tool--resetting the codes is a snap!)
I knew that a loose gas cap could cause this, so normally I just give it a twist and it tightens. Now I found that no matter how many "clicks" I tightened the gas cap, it would not cinch down snug. The lightest turn the opposite way would open it.
I was all set to head over to CarQuest for a replacement filler cap. But I thought I'd inspect mine first just to see why it stopped holding. Upon inspection, I saw that what holds the cap in place is compression of the rubber O-ring at the back of the cap, which compresses against the filler neck. That apparently was no longer happening.
I carefully removed the O-ring from the cap--using screwdrivers to lift it over the edge of the groove it sits in. Like removing a bike tire from the rim--work your way around. Then I cut a strip of electrical tape about 10" long, and 1/4" wide. I wound this into the curved groove where the O-ring normally sits, just to build up a little thickness. Put the O-ring back in place. Done.
Now the cap tightens like it's supposed to, and thus far, it has stopped the VSC error codes. Don't know if it will fix your issue or not, Good luck.

SOURCE: Check engine and VSC lights on
that the check engine light is on indicates a problem. that the light is not flashing indicates that the computer does not think that the problem is all that bad. without some other vehicle malfunction symptoms best advice i can give you is to take your vehicle to a place that has a code reader and see what codes it has stored. some car parts stores will retrieve the codes for free, idea being that the parts store can then sell you some parts to fix the problem. but you don't have to buy anything, you can just have them read the codes. some of the parts stores will give you a printout of the codes too. get the codes and you know what the computer is not liking, then you can make a more informed decision about what to do next. hope that helps.
