Question
I have a 2010 Toyota Corolla "S" and the check engine vcs light just went on,what does this mean? And what can i do to fix it?

Answer
The VSC light usually turn on after the check engine light turns on, there are a number of things that can turn the check engine light on that's why these cars have onboard diagnostic systems so the first thing you should do is to have the trouble codes retreived from the computer, most autoparts stores like Autozone do this for you at no charge, also keep in mind that the problem may be covered under the factory warranty so you may consider contacting the Toyota dealer or find out what the trouble codes are and reply to me with the code numbers and I'll help with this.
