SOURCE: 2003 fuel smell

could be an exhaust leak, or a bad gas cap.  gas caps have a vent that allows air to escape from the tank safely, if you notice a depressurizing sound when you take the gas cap off it should be replaced, it's possible that the air is building up in the tank and leaking out somewhere it shouldn't be, in which case this is very unsafe so please be careful if you must drive it this way.

SOURCE: 99 lexus es 300 chk engine and trac lock lite on

I had check engine light and TRAC OFF. OBD-II MIL code was P1133 which is Air Fuel Ratio Sensor Response Malfunction and scanned by AutoZone. After disconnecting the battery for 10-15 minutes, the lights went off. I cleaned the gas cap and tightened it firmly. For the last 400 miles, the lights have not come back. When scanning using Snap-on one, no code was detected. I think gas cap was the reason for the lights.

SOURCE: I have an /05 Highlander.

The VSC has nothing to do with the O2 Sensor,TPS Sensor or EGR Valve.

I will not express what I'am thinking,but in reality,NO Diagnostic work was done
on your vehicle.

My advice,and I don't know why the pros aren't all over me yet,is never go to a dealer.
You and thousands of others on this site alone,are perfect examples of why you
go down the street, to a local repair shop that cares.
I bet if you checked your in & out milage, that they are the same. Never road
tested,nothing,just threw parts at it at your expense.
There are good techs at dealers,but no service Mgrs that care,it is all about
taking your money and selling services you don't need. On the 5th visit they will
make the drivability repair you went there for.

Common sense: asumming they pulled codes
you never have multiple sensor failures all at one time.

Yes this ih how it operates. The check engine light is designed to protect the catalytic convertor.When ever the CK ENG LT comes on it disables the VSC.

TIRES REPLACED THEN CHK ENG, TRAC CONT, VSC.....COINCIDENCE?


Coincidences do happen. The main oxygen sensor is usually more in the engine compartment than out of it and the diagnostic oxygen sensor is screwed into the exhaust system just behind the CAT near the middle of the underside and is usually tucked well out of the way.

The tyre company would need to have been extremely reckless to have caused damage to either. Without evidence of that you have no grounds to proceed against them.

The vsc light comes on with the check engine light and the traction control image. Car runs good and the gas cap is tight.


You need to take it to Autozone and have it ran for test. There is something wrong. They will scan it for free.

Getting message CHECK VSC with engine warning and traction lights on permanently.


Whenever the check engine light comes on it also turns on the trac and the vsc, if figures the trac and vsc can not operate properly if the engine is not running correctly, when check eng light turns off the rest will also, the first thing to do is have the computer scanned, there will be stored codes, these codes will tell you where the problem is, many auto part stores will scan it and give you the codes, if you get the codes i could help you further good luck.

VSC OFF CHECK ENGINE INDICATOR


If you have recently filled your tank, release and then tighten your gas cap.
VSC check engine lights are often triggered by a loose cap or fouled O2 sensor. If the light stays on for several more days of driving you may need to have a fault code reader plugged in at a service center and the lights reset after determining the cause. Get the details on a printout for future reference and psot back with results

My lexus just quit working, it will crank but die when you put it in gear, the check engine light came on with a code of VSC any ideas. Thanks.


Saw this on a Lexus user club site ---
  • Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) senses the onset of loss of lateral traction and helps the driver stay on track. Input from four wheel-speed sensors, a yaw-rate (directional) sensor, a deceleration sensor, and a steering-wheel-angle sensor is communicated to the VSC computer. The system has the ability to reduce power and to control the brake actuator. Working with both ABS and TRAC, the VSC system helps the driver to compensate for loss of lateral traction, which can cause skids and loss of vehicle control. Lexus Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control.
However, it appears Lexus owners who have reported this sort of problem did not have to do anything to fix except - things like .. uncap gas cap and put it back, remove battery leads for about 10 minutes and put back, tighten air filter hose ...all wierd.

Have you checked your owner's manual ?

TRAC OFF, VSC, and check engine lights are on in my 2004 Lexus ES 330


Often caused by a loose gas cap or fouled or failed air fuel O2 sensor. Check your gas cap is fully ratcheted, Drive a day or two. If lights don't clear you will need a code reader attached to the car to diagnose.

well the check engine light on can mean many different issues its just a symbol telling you that your ecu (engine computer) has found an issue with your vehicle it is not a specific indicator of whats going on unless you get the codes pulled from your computer any autozone will pull the codes for free and some shops will also just call around they will not diagnose prob for free though it could be anything vacume leaks - o2 sensor bad ext....as far as your vsc being on most of the time when your check engine light comes on the vsc will light up also does not mean there is an issue with your vsc system....i work as a mechanic for a toyota dealer and see his all the time and check to make sure your gas cap is tight will set check eng and i see it all the time when custs forget to tighhten gas cap if its loose you can get the codes erased hope this helps!!!!
