My 2008 Scion xB just had struts replaced and now "VSC off"

Customer Question

My 2008 Scion xB just had struts replaced and now "VSC off" light is flashing.
JA: How has the ride been lately? Have you noticed any fluid under the car?
Customer: No. Ride is better but tires have not been replaced yet and need to be replaced from uneven wear.
JA: Are you fixing your xB yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: My husband replaced the struts.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No. The VSC off light has never flashed like this before.

Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. Well if it happened just after replacing the struts most likely the sub wire harness was damaged if they weren't disconnected to the wheel when doing the struts. To determine that you would have to disconnect each wheel sensor and sub wire to check for continuity to determine which one or you can drive for a while like that until the ECU has time to store a fault code you can pull to tell the one or ones that are effected.Hope this helps and if you require further assistance I'll be happy to do so.
