    besides VSC , the TRAC OFF and CHECK ENGINE lights also on ,

    I have the same problem the dealer wants $$$ just to check it out
    I went to Autozone they will check it out for free. The result was either faulty spark plugs, vacuum leak, injector fault because my car was also misfiring.
    I am going to local mechanic who will scope it for me and give me an estimate , I may try Pep boys as well but they want $89.99 for the scope. I will let you know.

Vsc code c1336


That code relates to a crankshaft position sensor signal. It you have a check engine light come it disables the VSC and Trac system. Until you get that sensor fixed the VSC and the TRAC system will be inop. So whenever you have a check engine light come on that is what you will see. Even though you cancel the check engine light the fault still exists and the VSC/ TRAC light will come back on. That is a sure way to tell that something is wrong.

Traction control light and vsc light on,i was told it could be a gas cap not being tightened enough,is this true


When the lights come on a fault is stored in the computer, you will need to read this fault to determine the cause.

Keep in mind that you need to have the codes pulled for the check engine lamp. Anytime a fault is detected and the check engine lamp comes on then both the VSC and Traction control systems are disabled/shut down by the computer as a "fail-safe" function.

Hope helps.

Vsc light and traction control


When the VSC and trac light comes on, Your vehicle enter a fail safe function the ECU rejects any open request from the VSC system and your vehicle operate regardless of ABS,TRAC, and VSC. Having it cleared without corrections will allow the light to come on. If the VSC is seeing a large over steer the VSC and trac light comes on.(even if its under steer).If the ABS ,Trac is correct you will need to seek zero calibration.This is done through the DLC connection in the hood.The easy way to reinitial lize steering angle is done by keeping steering wheel in the straight ahead position (driver window down) disconnect the negative battery, and reconnect , turn key on . The other way is to go to the engine and find the DLC again driver window rolled down steering wheel in the straight ahead position. do not shake the vehicle you must be on a true level ground. No heavy load in the vehicle and no entering the vehicle untill this is complete Turn the key on at this point you will do everything through the window you cannot enter the vehicle.in the hood where the DLC is at you will short pin Ts and CG with a paper clip 4 times repeatedly within 8 seconds. There the VSC will go to zero point.Turn key off (again turn ignition off through the window) make sure you remove the shorting out of Ts and CG. Now your done. 10_13_2011_4_27_16_am.gifFor Rav4 use you DLC 3 its under the driver dash.As for the pin location its on the cover of the DLC 3

The vsc light is on


The VSC light.VSC stands for "Vehicle Stability Control". disconnect the negative battery terminal for few minutes then reconnect it again then check out if the VSC light is still coming On. ------------ But if this does not help you to solve the problem then this "VSC light On" problem is related to loose vacuum hose.Properly check the air filter the vacuum hose thats behind the air box ,if this vacuum hose is loose then you will get the VSC light. -------------- Also check the gas cap,if the gas cap gets loose then this can cause the problem. ----------- but if all this possibilities checked ok and still the VSc light stays on,then this problem has to be checked by retrieving codes at diagnosis center.You can get your car scanned at www.autozone.com.Its absolutely free to get car scanned at auto zone service center.Once the error codes are retrieved the exact faulty part can be replaced as per the codes. ---------------] Keep updated for any more queries.Thanks.

Vsc light on my lexus rx 350 2007 .


I'm not sure about the Lexus, but Nissan and other vehicles with the VSC usually will be on until you can drive on a straight road for approximately 2-3 miles without stops and about the same speed during the reset process. The interstate or some type of hwy will reset this light once the vehicle has learned the Vehicle Stabilization Control in which is learned by the way you drive and enables the car to have stable control. Hope this helps out, if this doesn't work, I would take it in for more diagnostics.

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

Lexus RX300 engine light n VSC light comes on


VSC means Vehicle Stability Control.

It comes on when the sensor send a signal that the vehicle is not stable on the ground.....check the wheel balancing and alignment and the air pressure of your tires too.

Good luck.
