If you are talking about the "VSC Off" light, it means that the button to disengage your cars Vehicle Stability/Skid Control" system is engaged. Press the VSC button, the system should reengage, and the light should turn off.
If you are talking about the other VSC light, it means that your car has been forced to take evasive action to avoid a dangerous situation. For example, if you are driving on an icy road, and take a turn too tight, the vehicle may be forced to apply pressure to one of the brakes to prevent the car from loosing control. In this situation the VSC indicator light will light up to alert you that the action was taken, and remind you to possibly slow down.

The problem many systems are tied into the Vehicle Stability Control system:
Solution: Take off gas cap and turn back on and listen for ONE CLICK check to make sure it is tight, if not do it again!
Second, pop open the hood, (latch is adjacent to steering column on the left side at the bottom of the dash (two latches one is gas the other hood). Take a small crescent wrench and loosen positive terminal bolt from battery (six to seven turns should do it)
take it off for 30 seconds then place it back on and tighten back on. Turn on engine, if lights did not go off, get a diagnostic check to find the proper code, there are a myriad of problems from a loose electrical connection, to oxygen sensors to brakes, etc. That can make this go on! This is the easiest and cheapest solution for the DIY tree mechanic.

What do the letters vsc mean on the dash


Is you vsc light on by itself, or is it on with a Check Engine Light as well. If it is just the VSC light then you need a Zero-Point calibration. This is supposed to be only done at a toyota/lexus dealer. They take out the VSC computer and run their diagnostics program and reset and configure(calibrate) your vehicles VSC. I personally would disconnect both battery terminals for at least an hour, even better overnight, this should allow enough time to have all the electricity drain completely from those computers. Hopefully this would reset everything. I would try this before going to the dealer, try to save some money. If it is the VSC and CEL(Check Engine Light), then you would have to get the codes read at AutoZone....they do this for free unlike the dealer and then post your codes up on this forum. Hope this helps.

Check engine light, VSC off, and VSC light are all lit up on my 2003 Toyota Sequoia


Doesn't matter what dash lights stay on after the motor starts,
you still have systems with a fault code that needs to be diagnosed

If you Google your car & VSC you can read for hours

What is VSC and what makes it light up on dash


The best advice I can give is go to google and type in vsc Toyota forum. They have had many problems with the VSC. If you change tires then you have to have the computer re calibrated. The forums will describe it and what it does, way better than I can.

What is a vsc warning light on a toyota estima hybrid ?


It stands for Vehicle Stability Control When the VSC system takes control it activiates stability correction. The slip indication light flashes while the buzzer activates. The VSC is able to operate at all times except when the centre differential is locked. When the centre differential locks, the VSC-OFF light in the combination meter illuminates to inform the driver that the VSC function has been turned OFF. The centre differential lock is designed for freeing the vehicle if it is stuck in mud for example, however it would be difficult for the vehicle to free itself if the engine output were reduced due to the operation of VSC. Therefore when the centre differential is locked, the VSC function is turned OFF.If a malfunction occurs in the VSC system, the VSC warning light illuminates to alert the driver. If the vehicle with VSC begins to oversteer or understeer because of an emergency avoidance measure, or by excessive speed in a corner, VSC will automatically activate. By adjusting the engine’s power output and braking each wheel independently, VSC helps to return the vehicle to a ‘zone of stable operation’..
