Hi there. I'm Peter and I'm a Master Tech. I will be trying to help you with your question.

Your VSC and Check Engine Light are on. I see you would like to fix the problem yourselves? Do you have a code scanner?

Without the code scanner knowing where the problem is to fix it is impossible.

Expert:  Pedro Goncalves replied 10 months ago.

I can recommend to disconnect the battery for about 15 minutes. Simply disconnect the negative cable and then reinstall. The light should go out. If they come back diagnosing with a code scanner will be required.

Please, check all fuses in the engine compartment and inside the vehicle on the driver's side.

Unfortunately, there's nothing else I can say.

I hope I was helpful. Thank you!
