Q: Vehicle stability control warning lights on

asked by on

VSC and VSC OFF lights are on.

VSC stands for vehicle stability control system, it uses the wheel speed sensors along with the brake system to safety control, slow, or stop vehicle. This is done by it’s ability to read the speed of each wheel and modulating individual brakes in order to keep the vehicle under control. If any damage occurs to the wheel speed sensors or any of the other it’s components, the system will shut down and set the VSC light. An inspection of your vehicles stability control system should carried out by a qualified technician to find the root of what exactly is causing these lights to appear.
