#41 of 73 2007 lexus rx 350 check engine,vsc and trac off light on
Jul 13, 2011 (10:13 am)
My wife 07 lexus rx 350 check engine, vsc and trac off light came on couple of days ago, I drive it to check out anything unusual, sure enough I notice the steering wheel vibrates for 2 or 3 seconds every now and then, but every time this happen, the engine light starts blinking a few time and stay on steady. I took the car to my mechanic and he hook up the code reader, and he said the one of the inigtion coil is bad, this cause the engine to vibrate once a while and the check engine light blinking. I bought an inigtion coil cost 122 dollars from the dealer and the mechanic put it in and the all the lights turn off by them self, no need to reset like some people post in the forum. One more important issue that I want to mention here is depend on which coil is bad, because there are 6 inigtion coils in the car, and position 1to 6 , coil 2, 4, 6 are very easy to replace, anyone can turn a wrench can replace these coils, however coil 1,3,5 are located in the back of the engine and require a lot of labor to reach the coils. The mechanic will determine which coil is bad and will charge you accordingly. my bad coil happen to be number 5 so he charge me 100 dollars for labor, base on informations in the forum, I notice coil # 5 use to be the norm.
#43 of 73 2002 rx300 check engine/ vsc light issue
Jan 16, 2008 (10:20 pm)
Hi there. The check engine light and the vsc light on my car came on. I took the car to auto zone, had the test... gave me 3 codes.... I took my car to the shop. They reset the light... Now it's on again. I looked for the loose hose as mentioned in the previous posts, and didnt find any errors there. The light was off for aprox. 5 weeks. The car has 48,xxx miles. Any other suggestions?
Also, I am looking to replace the strip that is on the bumper. It says Lexus on it. I believe it is there to protect the paint from any damage when moving stuff in or out of the trunk area. Some how, mine has vanished... Anyone know where I can get a replacement?

Today the light just magically went off... ironically after my son put gas in the car and didn't turn the car off while pumping. Coincidence?!
#46 of 73 VSC / Engine Light
Feb 09, 2008 (8:06 pm)
My 2002 Lexus RX300 had the VSC and check engine light come on today. I did just get the oil changed about 500 miles ago, so I checked the hose behind the air filter and sure enough, it was disconnected. I reconnected it, then the lights didn't clear so I had to disconnect my battery to clear them. I hope it stays cleared now. I did notice my clamp that holds the hose on is not very secure, so may need to get a new one. Thanks for the tips, WAY better than getting charged at the dealer for something so easy.
#47 of 73 Help engine light and fuse question
Mar 27, 2008 (3:21 pm)
Hello I have a RX300 the engine light keeps coming on and nothing is wrong with the car. I will check the hose behind the airfilter, as suggested in a ealier blog thanks to whom ever. I also have a dummy light for my "lights" I have checked al my light even brights. All good except for the(2) yellow light in the front of my car on the front quater pannels. I am thinking it's a fuse is their any easy way to find out which fuse it might be, I have looked at the owners manuel and find it hard to locate? Thanks

Our check/VSC light came on a couple of weeks ago. Not the gas cap, not loose hoses. Free AutoZone diagnostic reveals: 02 sensor! Fused to the manifold, I was told it happens to about 1 in 50 RX. Expensive little repair as they have to replace the sensor and the manifold... There goes the old tax rebate check!

You know I really wish people joined the forums which already have hundreds of your fellow car-make owners who could save people thousands...Just think about it, WHY would they fuse the o2 sensor to the manifold? All the o2 sensors which I've seen in my life were ALL threaded. Its like saying that if you have a cut on your hand, the doctor needs to replace your entire arm. Nothing against you, I am just trying to save you money in the future, when I bet you could have found a much better use for the money from the tax return...
Do not trust the STEALERSHIPS!! I can't stress that enough .
#50 of 73 VSC & Check Engine Light - IGNORE
Mar 24, 2010 (7:08 am)
Why have manifold sensor replaced? Why not ignore? VSC has nothing to do with the engine. The check engine light is probably associated to Manifold sensor.
