Hi there. The VSA light is on indicating that the traction control is active. This will turn on the brake system and try to control the vehicle in the event a tire will slip. The wheel sensor on the left rear is not responding and due to that it has thrown the logic sensor failure and internal power source failure. I recommend replacing the left rear TPMS (tire pressure monitoring sensor) and this will fix the issue you are having. If you need further assistance troubleshooting your issues, then seek out a technician for an inspection of the VSA warning light and all other relevant systems so that this can be addressed appropriately.
