    Ive done zero point on VSC lights. They come back on. This lead me to research the issue, turns out that the vehicle computer shuts off stability control if there is an issue with how the engine is performing. The codes I'm getting now are bank 2 cat. Is that something I can easily replace myself with a little bit of determination? Or should I take it to a mechanic and bend over?

    I had the same lights come on. It turned out to be the gas cap. Bought a new one from the dealer, and solved the problem on ours.

    I had the same issue. I replaced the gas cap, and the battery, which solved the problem.

    This was on a 2003 V8 4WD with 118k miles.

    Went to dealer and they said it was emission related. I hit a stump hard the day before and had a large dent in the catalitic converter. They turned of the light but said it will probably come back on. Also said that I was probably polluting more than others now. Anyone know how to turn off these lights?

    Wow. Did they say how much the repair would cost?

    it was going to be $130 to take it in and do full diagnosis. Also implied that it is no big deal.

    In VA (where i'm at) you gotta pass emissions, otherwise they won't renew your plates. Hope it works out quickly, and you don't have an issue.
