Why do the brakes on my lexus is220 keep siezing?

You can not expect someone to guess at that for you

Have to take things apart & do the required brake service
once a year & continue on & check for abs system codes
& the braking issues

I know I would park it & not use it until resolved

1998 Lexus Ls vsc light is on want to know what is it

Vcs means "Vehicle Stability/skid Control".Variable Skid Control is a part of your brake system. It is indicating that it senses a problem with your brake system.Get the car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free at autozone to get car scanned.In scanning it will show the error codes as per that you can get the parts replaced.Also if in scanning,if no codes are shown ,then also get your brake system inspected. ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My 1999 lexus gs 400 is having problems with the accelerator

Your throttle position sensor might be stuck on the wide open throttle setting!

Do you have any check engine codes? Is the check engine light on?

It might not be if the TPS is still in the normal range...but is just sticking open.

2001 lexus rx300 problem. When accelerating the vehicle makes a grinding sound as if something is engaging and you feel vibrations. It only last for one to two seconds and this only happens sporadically.

Any grinding is not good. This almost sounds like a sticking brake rotor/caliper which is popping free, or a parking brake dragging. Either way the fact that it stops does not mean it will fix it self. I would inspect all 4 brake rotors for excess wear.
try to determine if this happens after parking and braking, then isolate the area you thing the noise is coming from.
Separate from that it could be a gear issue in your trans at low speed but you need to get it checked ASAP as it will only lead to greater expense.

Just got car service for 75,000 miles also had new

Sounds to me like someone has perhaps knocked the ABS sensor while working on the brakes. The ECU in these cars interlinks various stability and braking components. Go back to the service center and ask them to put a code reader on the car and get a read out. It may only require that they reset the fault codes, but do not delay. On some Lexus vehicles these lights will also come on when the battery has been disconnected and there will be a reset for the programs, but the TRAC off light has never come on on my 2001 when doing brakes or battery swap.
nice find an 02 with 75,000. My 2001 is over 160

How to replace third brake light on 1997 lexus es 300

"To get access to the 3rd brake light:

- Place each hand against both sides of the plastic housing, and firmly grasp and pull the housing towards you. It might not budge at first, but it should move once you get a good grip on it.

- Pull the housing out just enough so that you can see the brake light bulb and stick your hand underneath. Ignore the speaker wires.

- Pull out the old bulb from the socket (it plugs in/out). Wear rubber gloves when handling the new bulb, and put the new one into the socket.

- Reverse the steps here to put the 3rd brake light back into place. Test out your brake light, and you're done" quoted from lexusk8 @ (great forum)

We have a 2006 lexus rx 400h hybrid. we installed front brake pads and resurfaced the rotors.reinstalled the rotors and after only one pump of the brake pedal the abs light is on, anti lock and...

You set 2 codes when you did the front brakes. Both are hydraulic malfunction codes for the front wheels. It set these as you pumped the brakes to get the pedal up the first time. All you need to do is clear the codes. It happens on all Toyota hybrids, Prius, Highlander, Camry ect when you do the front brakes. Just find a place that will clear the codes for you. There is no malfunction..

I have a 1990 Lexus LS 400 and the brakes have failed. I replaced the master cylinder, the brake lines and now being told the ABS "brains" of the braking system needs replacement. Has anyone had this...

If the pedal is spongy you may still have air in the lines. If there are no brakes at all you may need to adjust the push rod for the master cyl. If the ABS has a fault it will set a code and the rest of the brake sys. will work normally
