    I have the same problem and when I put my OBD on it I get a P0441&P0446 code. I have replaced all 3 O2 sensors, and a new gas cap and dread the thought of having to replace the canister. Help!

    If you are stuck with this car/ problem, take this to Autozone or Pepboys and ask them to read the CEL code for you.  There are many many sensors on this car which turns on the Check Engine Light (CEL) and the TRAC lights.  Once you have this information, we can help.

I have the exact same problem, I bought a 99 lexus es 300 from this private owner. As soon as I drive it home, the check engine light and VSC light were on. I took it to the dealer and they charged me $385 for it. The VSC and check engine light came back on the next day. I took it back to the dealer and they said it was something else, this time its a short circuit of something. A month later the same VSC and check engine came back on and this time they say its a code 1325 with #6 cylinder. They want to charge me another $120 to diagnose it and they said its a different problem. Is this right? they can't be charging me again to diagnose it. This is from "ELKGROVE TOYOTA" IN ELKGROVE, CA.

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.

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.
