Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Is the VSC light still on after clearing the codes?

If the VSC light is on, there should be codes in the system that can be read. Most often, the VSC light comes on from a faulty wheel speed sensor.

The VSC and Check engine lights come on simultaneously when the air hose was left loose. This is very common, leaving the hose off, but, the VSC light staying on has nothing to do with the hose being off.
