VSC stands for Vehicle Stability Control. It's a program that helps regulate your shocks, and brakes during emergency maneuvers. It comes on when the computer detects some kind of problem. The check engine light coming on makes sense also. Yes, it's perfectly safe to drive with the lights on, provided the check engine light isn't something more serious to your actual engine. You can take it to the dealer or almost any Auto Parts store and have them check the Codes that it's throwing. That will tell you what the problem is and if you can be driving it or not.

This is your ABS and Suspension system if the light is on the system is not active therefore if you have an Emergency, the system to correct the stability will not work. This system is designed to help keep the car stable in emergency situations.You need to have it Diagnosed by a Professional and make repairs. Could be as simple as an ABS speed sensor. Do you really want to trust you life to a 16 yr old kid at the parts store?
