wrong. once the code is cleared it clears all freeze frame data, dtcs, and on board snapshot data. depending on the scan tool, the tool itself might store its recent activity. auto zones super advance diagnostic tool... LOL. i wouldnt rely on autozone for parts let alone information regarding my auto investment.
the VSA light is on because the system is disabled when the PCM detects a failure that could change the effects of engine operation. (a misfire code would do this, but an evap code most likely would not) Your vsa, traction control, and abs are all concentrated into an integral system. the engine can reduce torque under certain circumstances to regain traction, stability, ect. if theengine isnt operating right, then it will shut the system down for safety and turn the light on to let you know its inop.
i recently learned that the vsa light wll turn on with a tpms light, but the system remains on then. but not with a CEL.
if you cleared it there is nothing you can do until it resets. once it does, take it to the dealer. if its a misfire due to oil fouled plugs it probably falls under the bullitin and theyll fix it for free. if its something else, at least you'll have pelple that know what their doing giving you advice
