I've got p1150 and p1155 on mine; the a/f sensor for each bank. P1155 shows up as "pending" and I don't know what that really means. I assumed I should change both, anyway. I haven't had the time to replace them myself, and serious cash flow issues so I'm not taking it to a dealer. I hate the retina-burning brightness of the CEL and the "Trac Off" lights on dark roads.
I'm guessing the system is detecting an error comparing the two a/f ratio sensor readings, could that be what's going on? There is lots of info from other owners on Club Lexus forums (some seem to be pretty savvy). There are really helpful photos posted by members.
I guess I'll have to order both a/f sensors; that's probably the best route. After 13 years I guess the car's earned a new set. The sensor in back (bank 1 is it?) looks like it will be a knucle-buster to unplug, and then a trip to the chiropractor afterward.
The OEM replacement sensor sold under the Denso part number appears to be the least expensive route to get OEM. $110 each through Amazon (unless the price changes while I'm online again).
Let us know what you figure out. I'm sure others have had this come up, too.

I also got both CEL and VSC lights on for my 2001 RX300 after 98000 miles, take the mass air flow sensor out (2 screws, sensor located on the air duct after air filter), spray it with alcohol, let it dry out, then reinstall it, and fix the problem, no cost and no need to replace the sensor

That is a good fix for the dirty MAFS (but won't help if the a/f ratio sensor (what used to be known as an oxygen sensor) is providing a faulty reading.

I scanned my codes again... Mine is showing both p1150 (perf malf bank 2 sensor 1) and p1155 (sensor heater circuit malf bank 1 sensor 1). Sensor 1 is the a/f sensor for each bank, bank 1 is the side facing the firewall, bank 2 is the side facing the radiator...
The question is: could it be the bank 1 (firewall) sensor's heater circuit is bad, and that's the only problem. Or, do I need to order two new sensors (the part# is the same for each). Perhaps it shows the other sensor error based on comparing the two readings? Any ideas?

I have a RX300 2002 that I purchased in July of last year so far only minor problems the car had 80,000 mi at purchase but what's brothering me is I hear a slight hum when I am idleing at stop light I've had this checked by a certified mechanic who only works on Lexus he hears it too he put it on a machine, checked everything to no avail I had a small hole in my flex pipe he changed that other than that the car runs like a dream for a 9yr old car. It was a one owner car no accidents garage kept paint looks like new. Does anyone else have this problem? It's not loud just annoying . In winter it's a little louder in summer not so.

other day we had the same problem 0n 2001 rx300 with codes 1130 & 1150 and also lean bank1 & bank 2. misfire cylinder #1,3&5. we changed the camshaft actuator solenoid on bank1. test drove the car- got no more misfire cylinder #1,3 &5. but still had codes 1130 , 1150 and bank 1 & bank 2 lean. we cleaned out the fuel injection system and done deal. problem fixed. clean fuel system on this car take a long time to disable the fuel pump.
to save time we ran a hose from fuel outlet to direct to fuel tank cap.

'01 "AWD" RX300, ~90,000 miles.
Diagnostics indicated both l/r rear speed sensors out plus rear vehicle heigth sensor out.
Suspected, inspected, for rear cable broken, kicked up road debris...?
Opened passenger side kick panel and discovered.....WATER.
Connector set, IM1,IM2, SOAKED.
Water source, dripping, seems to be quite high up, seemingly just to the right of the CD player "box". Disassembled inlet cowling but could not replicate problem even with water pouring down the windshield and into the air inlet ducts for A/C intake airflow.
Disconnected, cleaned and dried ,(hair dryer,) both IM1,2 connectors and fault indicators extinguished.
Anyone experience this...? Ideas for fix?
