Question about 2000 Lexus RX 300

Lexus RX 300 symbol

I recently bought a 2000 Lexus RX 300. It has no owners manual. There is a symbol next to the speedometer that looks like a car with lines coming out of the back where the break lights are. The brakes appear to be working fine and are lighting up fine so we are unsure if this is related to something else or if there were break problems in the past that have been fixed but the light did not go off.

That's a traction control or skid control system indicator. Usually these systems are on by default, so if you turn them off (or if they fail) the indicator will come on so you know the system is not engaged. I would have a shop scan the computer for fault codes to see if a failure is logged - it may be with a yaw sensor, or a wheel speed sensor (which could also manifest as an ABS problem), or some other fault, including a possible stability control computer failure or fault. But the first step is to see if there are any codes stored in the system, and those codes will point you in the right direction to fix the problem.
