Default VSC check engine and traction lights?

Hey I recently got a check engine light and traction light. The dash says check VSC. I do have after market ppe race headers. Any idea what this is? Or what it could be for?

Thank you

might be just that, PPE has awesome customer service, so if that's the case it shoudl get fixed quick . Did anything happen prior to all that? have you plugged it up and checked out the code it's throwing?

Sounds like your secondary O2 sensors.

Also that seems to be the code that PPE headers were throwing.

Search is your friend in this case; several threads have gone into depth hunting down this issue.

Pull the fuses and reset. Search fuse reset.

If codes come back. I would check the O2 extenders on both sides. Make sure it is not touching the headers at the very top.

it took mine thru a touchless car wash and had those lights on when i got back in it. of course the owner said that it wasnt his fault. took to it the dealership and the driver side secondary o2 sensor was bent and the lines were frayed. the result of hitting 'something' in the car wash.

i KNEW better than to take it thru but it needed to be washed and i was short on time. i feel sick about it.
