Can't offer any help but I have experienced the VDC warning light on 3 occasions. Each time it was shortly after starting the engine and moving a few yards.

I just stopped, switched the engine off, restarted and everything was ok again.

I would suggest a loose connection if there's an intermittent light failure warning. The only one I get is one of the headlight bulbs has blown. Again. Even though it was new a few weeks earlier.

Most likely you need a new battery, the system is sensitive to volages and the batteries on these cars don't last more than 5-6 years in peak condition.
