What happened?

Most likely a power connection was shaken loose by the rumble strip. Or a partially poor circuit was shaken violently enough it shorted fully and blew a main control fuse. I would check fuses in the underhood fusebox for power (not just that they dont look blown, a multimeter or test light should be used). There is a Body control module that is triggered by the 10a ECU-IG fuse (look in your manual) and if its fuse is blown, then it cant activate the MAIN POWER RELAY, which is...the relay that powers much of what you dont have (lighting, windows, shifter, etc).

Unless you are experienced and have diagrams and locations, this could be more than the average bear can handle, Id recommend referring it to a qualified professional who has access to the wiring diagrams, component locations, plug pinouts, and can go straight to the common points. But you could try checking what I just gave you...and pray for luck.

Rx330- check light is on and vsc light is on. Engine is shaken. What does it mean?

There is a problem with the performance of the engine, and you should have the engine computer checked for trouble codes.
Anytime the check engine light is on, the vsc is on too because the vsc uses the engine to control the car.

Dont drive a car with the light flashing. A flashing check engine light means that something is really wrong and you can damage the engine if you drive it.

It is not the necessarily the sensor but the relay that controls it. Check the relays it could have been shaken free in the bump. Pushing the relay in and out of its socket could refresh the contact and solve the warning code. To clear the code disconnect the negative battery terminal for a few minutes.

Check engine light is on check engine light

Take the vehicle to Auto Zone, advanced Auto parts or o'Rieley's Auto parts and ask them to use their scanner to read the stored Code from the ECM for you.
