Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Thank you for trusting us with your questions. It it likely that the VSC light is on because the check engine light is on. Is the check engine light on steady, or does it flash? Does the vehicle drive normally?
Thats a good sign. However, to give you the best information possible, I will need to know the code number associated with the check engine light being on. In most states, you can go to your local auto parts store and have the code read for free. Autozone does it for free in the states where it its allowed. If you can get that code, I will be able to get you in the right direction to get this fixed.
Just to explain, the check engine light can come on for a HUGE number of reasons. It can be anything from the fuel filler cap being left loose, to a major engine concern. The code number will point us in the right direction.
Auto parts stores are generally open. Keep in mind, they sell parts, so they don't necessarily know how to fix your car. If they cannot get the code read for you, you can get an inexpensive code reader from the parts store, or from harbor freight tools if there is one in your area.
