Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you.
This sounds like a weak battery. There is not a large amount of amperage needed to light up the dash and the nav, where the starter needs over 400 amps to spin the engine over.
The check vsc light would not cause the car to not start. I would replace the battery.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reply
