When the Check Engine light comes on, the VSC light is also set, which turns this system off. This is a self-preservation mechanism, in case the reason the Check Engine Light is on can harm or effect the VSC system. So- fix the reason why the Engine Light is on, and the VSC system will come back online.
With that said... if there is an exhaust leak, this will affect the A/F Sensor (Air/Fuel Ratio Sensor) because the sensior is now not getting enough of the exhaust across it to take an accurate reading. So, the exhaust leak should be repaired first. If the A/F Sensor code still comes back after the exhaust leak is fixed, then the sensor itself will need to be replaced. So, to answer your question, yes- either or both of these reasons will set the VSC and Engine Lights.
