#1 of 15 Service lights on
Apr 24, 2009 (8:29 pm)
One day my VSC, Traction and check engine lights came on. Nothing seems wrong with the car. Took it to a mechanic, they said many things popped up on their computer (emissions, etc, including replacing computer). Any ideas from anyone. The car has 48k on it, the warranty ran out at 39k.

On three occasions in the last two weeks, the check engine light came on as did the VSC disengaged light, once when just started, once on highway and once on a city street. At the time the lights were on, the engine ran very roughly. The dealer told me the only solution is for me to drop off the car when the light is on. I'm convinced it is not the VSC causing it because it ran the same way when the car was parked in a lot with the lights on. When on the highway, the engine lost some power. Any one else with the experience? or insight?

I have a 2008 xB, with 12,000 miles on it. The VSC and check engine lights went on for a day. Then went on again after 2 days, it seems like it's loosing power and sluggish as soon as the lights went on, afterwards it was okay as if nothing happened. I brought it to the dealer, the #4 ignition coil was misfiring, and was replaced. It was diagnosed by their UP Scan tool as 191011 Ignition coil. Luckily, I bought the extended warranty, and I even got a loaner car for a day. Maybe this is the same problem with your xB. Good luck......

To reset engine light:
1. Turn on ignition.
2. Press button to Trip A Mode
3.Turn ignition off.
4. Turn ignition on while holding button until light goes off.
When replacing air filter, I don't disconnect any wires, just unlatch the cover and lift gently until I can remove the old filter. I also wipe the inside of the air filter housing with wet rag or use the vacuum cleaner with a thin wand. I hope this will work for you. .

I was wondering the cost of repair for the vsc, tracking light and engine light for my 20005 scion xb. It has a little over 11,000 iles on it.
#10 of 15 VSC and check engine lights
Feb 16, 2010 (8:59 am)
The VSC and check engine light have gone on three times in the last week. The first time it happened, I called the dealer. They told me to tighten the gas cap and then turn the car on and off three to four times which would reset the computer. This worked for the first and second incidents. Unfortunately today this occurred again and the lights are still on. Worse yet, the vehicle started to exhibit SUDDEN ACCELERATION. Speed went from about 62mph to 67 mph. Waiting for dealer to call me back and repair. Vehicle has 30,000 miles on it.
