You could follow the advice I got years ago from the then service manager at Bellevue (WA) Lexus and simply disconnect the MAF/IAT sensor while the engine is idling. The engine will die, reconnect the MAF/IAT, restart the engine and be on your way. For the next few drive cycles you will have a meaningless CEL but a very meanful TC/VSC "fault".

This sequence works fine. My wife thought I was having a fit or something watching me do it!
This did not solve my brake/stopping problem. I thought it did for a few trips, but now it is still there. Feels like drum our of round or bad pads. Can not figure it out. It does not happen all the time which is crazy. Any ideas?

The problems do not seem to be there all the time.
When braking, and almost stopped it feels like the wheels are out of round. Like a flat spot. Also, notice it at higher speeds, but harder to describe.
Bought new tires, problem same before and after.

Ask you brake below ~10 MPH, down to fully stopped, late model Toyota and Lexus FWD and F/AWD vehicles will upshift and you will feel a bit of a forward "lurch", feeling as if the brakes released slightly.
Is that the feeling you're trying to describe...??
These transaxles will do the same thing, upshift, as you coastdown, throttle closed and/or braking, below 40-30 MPH.
10-0MPH is often described as being bumped slightly from behind, and 40-30MPH as a "slingshot effect".
