Question about 2002 Lexus RX 300

Lexus rx300 check engine/ vsc light

My check engine and vsc lights come on whenever it is cold or rainy. They seem to be fine on warm sunny days. I have read the solutions and checked alll of the suggestions but everything I checked seems to be OK. It has done this since i bought it almost 3 years ago. The dealer said it was just a sensor and he would replace it but it is such a long drive to where I bought it that I could not get back there. I can fix it myself if I had a clue where to look. Thanks Same issue

Vehicle Stability Control is part of the ABS function and is probably due to moisture on the brake pads when not used for a while.

Why is my lexus rx300 vsc and engine light on?

Usually means there is a hard fault code in memory.
Go to your local Auto Zone and have the codes pulled and give them to me.

VSC warning light and check engine code 786 on Lexus 2002 RX300

The VSC warning light, Trac Off and check engine is probably an easy fix. If you look under the air filter/cleaner box there is probably a rubber hose that has been disconnected from a steel line. This is common if you have had the oil changed recently, the tech will check the ail filter and doesn't realize the hose has been disconnected.

Lexus RX300 engine light n VSC light comes on

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.

Good luck.

My lexus rx300 had the engine and vsc light on also.

The ck engine light is not triggered by just the o2 sensor. Is this a new vehicle? 5 or 6 times for the same problem and unseccessful? Hmmmm I belive the lemon law says the dealer has 3 attempts to correct the problem and of course federal emmision standards are more than likely not in compliance. Want another lexus?
