SOURCE: I recieved the following Warning lights: VSC and Engine Check

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.

SOURCE: LS430 check VSC light on after check engine light on

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.

Had my 2007 prius serviced this am. on the way home a red light light came on with a tire light and a amber vsc check light came on. What does this mean?


You need to get the fault codes read because of the red check engine light coming on. Do you have an OBDII reader? or does a friend have one? If not ... I would take it back to where you got it serviced.
The piece of data that could be helpful is the check engine light going on after refueling. If you are lucky ... you may have not 100% screwed the fuel cap back on with the final clicking. That can cause the check engine light to go on. It is curious though that your tire and VSC lights went on ... there may be something electrical going haywire.

In my car when I switch on the ignition the vsc 4wd a/t oil temperature comes on the dash n then goes off and while driving I get check break system.


If the other lights don't come on, Then check the brake fluid level. These lights can come on, depending on driving conditions.

Red spanner warning light


Brake Light. Make sure you are not driving with hand brake on. Check brake-fluid level. Top off brake fluid if low and make appointment to check brakes. Driving with brake light can be dangerous; deal with this soon. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Indicates either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid and make appointment to get brakes checked. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
Oil Light. Either engine is very low on oil or there is no oil pressure. Pull over and turn off engine immediately. Check oil level and add oil if low. Turn engine back on to see if light has gone off. If oil light is still on, bad oil pump (no oil pressure) is likely. Call tow truck.
Check Engine Light. Car's computer senses engine problem. Difference in performance may not be noticeable, but make appointment to have car diagnosed. This usually cost around $65-$75 to do. OK to drive. If problem is serious, computer may switch to limp-home (low-power) mode and you won't have option of waiting to bring car into shop.
Air Bag Light. Get air bags checked. Problem could prevent them from activating in accident. OK to drive, but not safe in accident.
Battery Charge Light. Alternator is not charging. OK to drive, but turn off any unneeded electrical devices (radio, heater, defroster) and avoid starting engine more than necessary. Bring car into shop soon to avoid getting stranded. When alternator is not charging, battery loses charge and car stops working.
Emissions Lights (O2 sensor, EGR, check emissions). Depending on car model, these lights may indicate problem with emissions sensor or may light up at certain mileage, usually 60,000 miles (100,000 km). Get sensors checked. OK to drive. If problem exists, car might get poor gas mileage.

WHY DOES VSC & CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STAYON


diagnostic reader and or workshop time required to
to fix both VSC and engine light faults /codes


VSC is brake /traction related ..... this is one explanation

It would appear that system braking, traction control, and possibly some anti rollover control is dis abled if this warning light is on. So it is both fuel in efficient and possibly dangerous to drive with this light on.

engine light

there are stored fault codes in the engine computer module pointing to faulty sensors on the car needing to be checked or replaced

My vsc trac warning light and check engine light went on


Please, make your mechanic check the ABS computer. My RAV4 did the same thing, but the mechanical components were alright. After a while, I almost fell off a cliff because my brakes stopped responding properly. When further checked, my mechanic discovered that the ABS computer was damaged. The part alone costs a whooping $3 thousand bucks, not including labor. So, beware and take precautions. Your life may be endangered.

I have a 2004 Toyota Sienna. Had the oil and filter changed yesterday and brought the car home. When I started the car this morning, the check engiine light, VSC and Trac Control light came on. I have...


I'd get the car back to who changed the oil and have them run the check engine code. If they are interested in customer service, I'd think they'd do that for free.

With the code, can better determine the risk. While I'd not consider a VSC/Trac Control critical (we ahve all driven cars for years with out it), the addition of the check engine light could mean bigger problems. I'd also be more concerned if it was an ABS brake fault or brake light that was lit.

any time your check engine light comes on it will turn off the vsc. you need to have your codes pulled for your check engine light and repair that issue then the vsc off light will go out as well. you can stop at your local parts store"autozone" and they will be able to pull your code once you have your code i can assist you in the proper repair

Check engine light and vsc lights come on but do not stay on


Had something similar with my 2wd 2004. When I first bought the car saw this 1 time in the first 25K miles, but not again until 6 months ago. I now have 94K and all the MIL laps lit up, but it only appread during high speed driving. (50 mph+). After driving around town slower, the lights would go off. (VSC lights, and all would come on). The dealership troubleshot and told me it was a steering position switch (which they said they hadn't seen in a Highlander go bad, but the computer and tech assured me that was the problem. $700 (300 parts, 400 labor).!! I made it clear that it better be the fix. After I got the car they said they drove it and the problem was gone. I took it out on the expressway and the lights came back on. I came back and took the technician for a drive and showed him. He scanned again and found a metal piece stuck in the ABS pick-up in the drivers rear wheel. Removed chunk, reset codes, problem resolved. Dealer swears I had a bad position switch but I don't believe it. The upside is with almost 100K miles, other than oil, 1 set of brakes and i set of tires, thats the only repair on this vehicle.

Also for those that have A/C heat problems, pull the knob off of the heat/cool selector (red/blue) and tighten the nut that holds the potentiometer on, I learned this from another forum and found my loose!
