Hi, my name is***** is normal for the VSC light to turn on when the check engine light turns on. You will need to get the car connected to a diagnostic scan tool in order to read out and erase the fault codes in the engine control module to turn these lights off. If the lights come back on the fault codes will need to be diagnosed and repaired. If this relates to a loose gas cap it's possible that the lights will remain off once the codes are erased.

Let me know if you need anything else.
