What is the light stating vsc is off what is this


VSC is vehicle stability control system. Read codes with a GOOD scan tool for more information. On Toyota and Lexus cars, using a scan tool other that the dealer tool will trigger VSC off and VSC lights, which can be reset using a procedure of key off, shift to certain gears, key on etc. as follows:

Friends,
For the benefit of any 2002 Lexus SC430 owners, I'll post the following item dealing with "Zero Point Calibration".
After hours of troubleshooting, I came to the hypothesis that the instructions MIGHT be different from 2002 - 2005 and 2006 - 2010 models. Below are the instructions I followed and WORKED on my 2002 SC430.
If you receive the "VSC" and "VSC Off" lights on the dashboard after a visit to a mechanic (often an independent mechanic using non-Lexus ODBII equipment), this means your "Zero Point Calibration" has been erroneously reset by a non-Lexus specific ODBII tool. This might especially happen if your state requires state inspection via ODBII, and you take your Lexus to a no-name place (like a Jiffy Lube or something). Follow the steps described in Post #6 in this thread to resolve this issue:
http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-2...d-vsc-off.html
Note that where you see a reference to a tool called the "SST 09843--18040", substitute that "tool" for a simple jumper cable (such as a short speaker wire) or a paperclip.
Here is the relevant excerpt from the above thread:
"The solution consists of approximately 15 step .
NOTE:While performing the Zero Point Calibration, do not tilt, move or shake the vehicle.
The vehicle must remain in a stationary condition throughout the entire process.
Be sure to perform the procedure on a level surface with an inclination of less than 1%.
Explanation of symbols:
SST (4-inch wire)
DLC3 (OBD-II connector under the dash)
TS (on the top row,pin number 3)
CG (on the bottom row,pin number 5)
(See picture below)
1. Ensure the shift lever is in the ''P'' range.
2. Turn the ignition switch Off.
3. Using SST 09843--18040, repeat a cycle of short and open between terminals Ts and
CG of DLC3 4 times or more within 8 seconds (refer to the specific vehicle EWD for
TS and CG pin location in the DLC3).
4. Turn the ignition switch ON, do not start.
5. Verify that the VSC indicator light is lit indicating the recorded zero point is erased.
6. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
7. Be sure the terminals Ts and CG of DLC3 are disconnected.
8. Turn the ignition switch ON, do not start.
9. Check that the VSC warning light goes off about 15 seconds after the ignition switch
is turned ON.
10. After ensuring that the VSC warning light remains OFF for 2 seconds, turn the ignition
switch OFF.
11. Connect terminals Ts and CG of DLC3 using SST 09843--18040.
12. Turn the ignition switch ON, do not start.
13. After turning the ignition switch ON, check that the VSC warning light is lit for about
4 seconds and then starts quick blinking at 0.13 second intervals.
14. After ensuring the blinking of the VSC warning light for 2 seconds, turn the ignition
switch OFF.
15. Remove the SST from terminals Ts and CG of DLC3.
16. Drive the vehicle for at least 5 minutes to confirm Zero Point Calibration is complete."

Toyota kluger 1007 how to remedy vsc light on. vsc not on


Not sure if this will help, but my 2002 LEXUS sc430 had this issue, and it turns out that if you plug any scan tool other than the dealer unit in, it will cause this VSC lights to come on. It requires that you reset the "zero point calibration" for the skid system, which is done by first: have car on level ground with less than 1% slope in any direction. Next, follow these directions:

2005 camry vsc light is on and traction control light on does not shift out of 1st gear


i'd check your tire pressure first if thats ok or at least equal on all four tires. usually vsc and tcs become active if the vehicles computer receives unequal input values from two or more wheel speed sensors. if one or two tires are low on pressure it can cause this to occur.

Warn hubs, installation


Warn Hubs Installation
A truck or SUV with a four-wheel drive suspension uses locking hubs on the front wheels to engage or disengage the front axle shafts from the hubs. This way, you can drive the truck normally with just rear-wheel drive, or engage four-wheel drive mode when you want to drive off-road. These hubs can wear out, and one improvement is to install a set of Warn hubs. Installing a set of Warn hubs takes about an hour.
1.Park the truck and put on the parking brake. Lift the front of the truck with the jack and put the jack stands under the front axle. Take off the front wheels with the tire iron and put them to the side.
2.Disengage the locking hubs using your hands by turning the knob on the hubs. Remove the snap rings holding the hub locks in place with the snap-ring pliers. Pull the hub off the axle.
3.Install the lock ring wheel from the Warn hub kit in the axle with the factory snap ring and the snap-ring pliers.
4.Make sure the Warn locking cap dial is turned to the "Free' position. Install the locking cap onto the lock ring wheel and hub body with a hex-head key. Reinstall the front wheels with the tire iron and lower the vehicle off the jack stands with the jack.

What does an ! in a circle mean with ( ) around it


This (!) symbol is your TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) warning light.
The manual has this to say about it:
This system monitors tire pressure. if the low tire pressure warning light illuminates, check the tire pressure in all four tires. Adjust the low tire pressure to the recommended cold tire pressure shown on the Tire and Loading information label located in the driver's door opening. After tire pressures are adjusted, the vehicle will need to be driven at speeds above 16 MPH (25 km/h) to activate the TPMS and turn off the low tire pressure warning light.

Audi A4 2008- warning symbol TPMS ?????? what does this mean. Also, tire pressure light won't go off. just had four new tires put on.


TMPS = Tires Monitoring Pressure System.
If you have been changed all tires of the car you must programm again all four tires TMPS sensors. This is the reason for TMPS warning symbol lightning on the dashboard.
