What does "Check VSC System" mean?

Asked by Dec 21, 2014 at 05:32 PM about the 2008 Lexus RX 400h Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For 2 days now, every time I start the car, this message appears "Check VSC System".  What does it mean? Today, the car failed to start at all.  The "Ready" light will not come on. Is the starting battery dead.  Its been 30 months since I replaced it.  This is a 2008 RX 400h with 75,200 miles on it.

I had a similar problem with my 08 400h where it had been sitting for two weeks. The problem for me was that the starting battery was too discharged. I shut off the lights and tried it again about 10 minutes later and was able to get it started and now I make sure I run it weekly.
