    Ok, started up the truck to warm it up, shoveled the driveway again and then hopped in. Something didn't feel right. I couldn't hear or feel it running. I hit the gas and the rpm's didn't go up that much. I shut it off and restarted it and it sounded ok that tine. But, that darn VSC light is back on again. The last time, last week, all the dealer did was clear it. So, what might be causing this. With this, the traction control is gone so I need it fixed with this snow still flying. Time to call the dealer again and tell him to fix it this time and not just clear the light.

    i had a similar problem on my 4runner. try and ask for a zero point calibration. the light also comes on if your speed sensor wire is lose or if the abs line is broken. i would check those first

    You haven't modified anything right? So it probably is some factory wiring gremlin - loose connector or something.

    If you whacked a wheel against a snowbank really hard messing up your alignment, that could cause a steering-angle sensor weirdity, and a VSC light.
