Hi
first I hope that you are well now
did you replaced the battery?
if yes, do this procedure and your car will be drivable.
switch ignition ON then OFF 10 times writhing10 seconds ( in total)
then switch ignition ON and leave it for 1 minute then you start the engine.
if you did not replace the battery yet, better you change it first

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.

VSC light and check engine light intermittently coming on. some time transmission fees sluggish too are these related> ls400 159K miles


Yes. Did you recently have the oil changed?Air Filter? Alot of techs accidentally disconnect hoses to Air Filter housing. Check hoses, Oxygen sensor could need replacement. Try reseting the sensor lights by disconnecting the negative (-) battery cable for 20 seconds then reconnect and start car. Lights should be reset. If they come back on take to dealer or to AutoZone where they can do a free analysis of engine codes
