We finally took the car to the dealer after wasting over $400 in "dart throwing" at the problem. The dealer replaced the following: master cylinder, front brake pads, shims, resurfaced rotors, right and left caliper. After having an absolute fit since they were the original purchase dealer and the vehicle has less than 85,000 miles, the original estimate was dropped from $1300 to a net total of $962.74. Of course 60% of that was labor!!

The moral of the story is: if you are a handy mechanic, you may want to overhaul your brakes such as above (the Avalon is worth it). It will save you $500!!!

If not, I would suggest taking it to a dealer or someone that will supply an airtight warranty...again the Avalon is worth it!

First thing is to take the car to AutoZone and have them scan the codes (it's free, where a dealer will hit you with an hour's labor). Get the codes from them and post them as a reply/comment here, and we can take it from there.

SOURCE: vsc vsc off check engine lights on

the reason the VSV light is on is because your engine light is on it is a safety reason when the check engine light comes on and a sertine code is set and it disables cruise control and traction control (VSV) you need to have the code pulled to see why the engine light came on then get back to me and i can pinpoint your problem and fix it my email is jagjeffery @yahoo.com or contact me here at FIXYA

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

What does "vsc" on dashboard lights toyota avalon mean?


The VSC is the Vehicle Stability Control. It appears there is a fault in the system somewhere. Also, if your Check Engine light is on, the VSC light will usually kick on as well. Fix whatever is causing your Check Engine light to come on first, and see if that also solves the VSC issus. I hope this helps! :) -Jason

Disconnect your battery for 10 minutes after which you connect it back the lights should go off. Don't report to toyota. Nigerian style!

VSC/ Check Engine Light


My 2000 Lexus GS 400 just had the VSC/VSC off light and the check engine light come on. I would have to push the accelarator peddle all the way down to get it to go. Took it to the Toyota dealer and the code pulled up as the Throttle Position Sensor was out. Purchased one and having it put in. Will update if this fixes the problem.

Vsc vsc off check engine light on 2000 toyota avalon


I just had the same issue. Cost me $40.00 to find out my gas cap wasnt clicked all the way. He also said that after the error arises, simply closing the gas until it clicked may not have removed the error code from the computer. Not sure how, but you might have to reset the computer, maybe just pull the battery?
