    I have the same problem! I've brought my '99 ES300 to the auto repair shop 4 times already since December 8 and it started doing the same thing again today. The spark park coils and igniters have been replaced. This time it was worse than ever --- I was unable to accelerate above 35 mph and the hesitation (or missing, as the repairman, describes it) was terrible. The repair shop can't seem to diagnose the problem. HELP!!! cpnola

    thats a common issue mine has the same prob but nothing was wrong with it, dicconect the bat for 15 to 20 mins clean you gas cap and surrounding area replace tightly reconect the bat and that might do the trick.

Unscrew the gas cap, wait 30 sec and screw it back on making 3 clicks/cracks. Should be ok in a day or two.

Trac off check engine


Newer cars do not like jumping other cars,because of voltage spikes.Check any and all fuses.You might have to replace the computer.

99 lexus es 300 chk engine and trac lock lite on


I had check engine light and TRAC OFF. OBD-II MIL code was P1133 which is Air Fuel Ratio Sensor Response Malfunction and scanned by AutoZone. After disconnecting the battery for 10-15 minutes, the lights went off. I cleaned the gas cap and tightened it firmly. For the last 400 miles, the lights have not come back. When scanning using Snap-on one, no code was detected. I think gas cap was the reason for the lights.

My check engine trac off light came on


This happened to me as well, just a few weeks after buying our 1999 ES300. Took it into Lexus for regular maintenance and to check this out. Apparently, if you don't replace the gas cap correctly and tight enough this can cause the 'trac off' light to come one. It will go off a little while after the cap has been replaced correctly. This also happened with my 2006 Murano, 'check engine soon' message.

Trac off and check engine light for lexus es 300 check engine & trac control off lights & engine stutters while revving in park. Engine seems fine in drive... Reset lights without them returning...


A week ago, on my Lexus ES 300 (2001), "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights came on. This coincided with me filling the gas tank to the brim to round the dollar to be paid. I cleaned the gas tank cap and the tank opening. However, both lights persisted. On the same day, when I turned on the car again, there was a hesitance, a stuttering to come on. Both "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights were still on.

The next day, the car wouldn't come on at all. It sounded as the battery was dead. I couldn't even jump start the car. So, I got a new battery from Costco ($59) and put it in. It took 15-20 seconds of cranking to get the car started. Once it was started, the engine sounded fine and the RPM normal. The "Check Engine" light was off. However, the "Trac Off" was still on. I cleaned the gas tank cap one more time.

The next morning, when I turned the car on, there was no problems. It came on instantly as it used to be, didn't have any warning lights, and drove smoothly.

I have a 99 lexus es300 and the check engine light+trac off sign posts. i normally disconnect the neg. cord on batt and it works but is that sign a serious problem. should i take it to mechanic and get it...


if u disconnect the battery and the light comes off, but then comes back on that means that there is something wrong. It could be something simple or could be major. only way to know to bring it to the dealer or repair shop and have them hook up a scanner to it. as far as the Trac off light, that comes when the check eng lite comes on. your vehicle turns off the traction control (trac off) when u have a fault code which is why the check eng light is on.
