Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. I would be happy to assist you with this.

These are notorious for setting the VSC warning when the battery gets low. Usually you can clear it and you'll be good to go. Have you had the battery tested recently? If it wore down enough to set the warning then it may be nearing the end of it's life cycle
