Question about 2000 Lexus RX 300
When we start our 2000 Lexus RX300 the brake light starts chiming. It is very sporadic and dies down after several miles. It usually starts out rapid and slows down as we drive till it finally stops or slows down to a flash/beep every 30 seconds or so. Brakes, brake pressure and fluid have been checked by a mechanic and are good. Mechanic thinks it's just an electrical short. I hate to keep driving the car with the brake light flashing a potential problem, but the car is performing well other than this issue.
Thanks for your help.
Check the Earth cable in the boot see that it's clean no white bits around the connection or the join. Cheers, Malcolm Campbell.

chances are you don't have to replace the computer. the reason i tell you this is because you did not mention that the car is running lousy. no complaints of rough idle or missfire or hard starting. chances are that your engine speed sensor which sends the signal to the computer which then controls the transmission is most likely the culprit.. and it could just bhe that there is a loose connection between the two. if that is ok then your transmission control module is faulty. this is not the main computer, but the gobetween the trans and the ecm.. hope this helps please rate this...thanks(btw....the knock sensors control timing not the trans mission)

If it is running perfectly I wouldn't think that you would need to replace the timing belt. You shouldn't need to replace that until 100,000-120,000 miles. I would definitely hold off until now unless you have start having some timing problems. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Remove 3 - 4 screws on fender cover close to side marker light. Pull fender cover out a bit for you to use your other hand to reach side marker light. By twisting on one direction and here you go the light out. Replace new bulb and replace everything on reverse order.

Lift the hatch. The tall center light is located behind the
upper hatch inside panel. There are two
panels need to remove. One panel is on the right, the other on the left. To
remove the panels you have to use flat screw driver to pry out the panel in
several locations. (These panels are secured by several small metal clips.) Be
careful to collect all these clips and replace them on the back of the panel.
You will need these clips to replace the panel later on. After remove the panels,
you will be able to locate the screws on the tall center stop light assembly. Remove
those screws and cover. After replacing light bulb. Assemble everything in
reverse order. Remember, the metal clips have to set on the back of the two
panels not the car body.

VSC means Vehicle Stability Control.
It comes on when the sensor send a signal that the vehicle is not stable on the ground.....check the wheel balancing and alignment and the air pressure of your tires too.
