Default Check VSC, Traction Control, and Check Engine Lights on..problem?

For the past 6 months every so often the "check engine" light and the light representing traction control being off come up on my dash. Also, on the little digital screen it says "check VSC" with the red triangle. The lights will disappear in a day or two and then come back a random amount of days later. Does anyone know what the problem is and is it serious? Car receives check ups fairly regularly but not in the last few months. I attached a pic of it, thanks for your help.

I have the same issue , cleared the code two times and never came back.

For my case it is the MAF sensor. We should both try to clean it.

I couldn't find MAF cleaner in my country yet. But it is there in USA


Good luck
