Check you gas cap. That is a common reason to light CEL. Keep an eye on gauges, make sure it does not overheat, check oil, and you should be OK to drive home.... unless the CEL starts blinking, that indicates a more serious problem. And don't worry about the vsc, the computer automaticaly shuts the stability control off whenever the CEL is lit. It's not faulty, but is disabled. Merry Christmas ~David

I 100% agree with FordNut, if the check engine light is not flashing, fluid levels are good (oil, water, brake fluid, trans. fluid and power steering fluid) and the gauges are in the normal range I would drive it home. Merry Christmas!
