    This sounds like the same issue I have, you'll need to have your codes scanned but I'm guessing you'll have either p0446 or p0441 (or both). From other posts it sppears this is the result of a bad charcoal canister valve but I'm awaiting a solution from Toyota Ed on that.

Had struts put on my 1999 ES 300 Lexus, now my TRAC & ABS STAYS ON, WHAT'S making them stay on?


Those systems are controlled with sensors on the wheels. One may not be lined up well enough to sense the speed of the tire or the mechanic broke one and didn't tell anybody.

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.

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