Question about 2009 Lexus IS 250

Open Question

Engine light is and slip indicator light is on

My car has been sitting idle for about a month without cranking. Was getting body work tires, new bumper and paint job. After about sitting idle for 3 weeks, when the repair guy tried to crank it, it wouldn't start. We had to jump the battery, but it is running now. However, the check engine and slip indicator lights are on. The car runs smoothly, but I'm concerned as to what could be the problem. Pepboys ran scan on it and came back with misfire codes for cyclinder 2 and cyclinder 6. Anyone have any ideas as to what the diagnosis could be?

SOURCE: No dash lights, power seats or windows. alternator not charging. Engine runs

  1. It might be that when you changer the battery post you might not have connected all of the leads on the positive post. You might also check for blown circit breakers caused while changing the terminals.Try using a dc tester and search the main breakers for power. If you have the manual it shows the breakers and links in the bulb replacement section. JOHN-LA.

SOURCE: My Car has been sitting

There could be 2 reasons for this. One is that the fuel pump burned out (you would be able to recognize this if you turn the ignition key over and get close to the gas tank you will hear it spinning). The other is there is a sensor on the bottom of the gas tank that reads when you are completely out of gas and you will need to contact the dealer on how to get it reset. Hope this helps you out! Have a good one!

2010 Ford F150 would suddenly loose power and only idle. Pull over shut off sit a couple minutes crank and run fine for a while then do same thing again. Wrench would show up on instrument panel

Sounds like the catalytic converter or muffler maybe getting plugged up and the computer is putting the truck in limp home mode. Did you put a scanner on the truck. You might try to remove the 02 sensor ahead of the cat and see if it runs a little better it will not be perfect but should stay running if so do an exhaust check. When the cat or muffler gets plugged it puts back pressure on the engine and won't allow the fuel to be pulled into the engine properly.

Hello: It sounds like you have a throttle with excessive carbon build up, remove the hose (air induction) from the throttle body use a clean soft towel and carburetor cleaner and clean the throttle plate and bore of the throttle body, do not spray an excessive amount of cleaner into the throttle body. After cleaning and reassembly, make sure key is off and disconnect negative (black) battery cable for 15 seconds.

Engine cuts off after several minutes despite enough fuel, new spark plugs and no physical indication of overheating or engine wear.

there is on the throttle body,a unit called an idle air control controls the idle speed,and it results in a very low idle or stall if could have a bad cap rotor or distributor or coil.There is also the crank and cam sensors,but they would set a check engine code if bad.

You will need a scanner put on it,with body module software,to diagnose the issue. If the Fuel Pump has a Driver Module,you won't see voltage unless certain conditions are met
Did you check fuel pressure at rail when cranking.
Without a wiring diagram of your veh,your pretty much done. Too high tech
I assume you got a crank sensor signal and spark,while cranking.
No codes stored,even without a MIL Light?

P2176=Throttle Actuator Control System - Idle Position Not Learned
Did you use all you old sensors,or is some of them from the new engine,I would swap out the IAC sensor or check for wires not hooked up.
If it can't relearn to idle the Idle air control might be different then your old one,but its not registering with the computer

2004 Honda Civic -Code P0122 Throttle Position Sensor Voltage Low

yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

2001 Ford escort zx2 wants to die while idling

The check engine light indicates a problem. You need to have the codes read. Most parts stores do this for free. Write down the codes and ask them what they mean, and what u should do. You can come back here if u need more info.

You need to go to the dealer and have the vehicle scanned for codes. If it has an ISC code it may just need the Idle Volume Learn performed. This can happen when the battery is disconnected for a long period of time. Hope this helps.
