SOURCE: LS430 check VSC light on after check engine light on

My car (06 GS430) began giving me more frequent "Check VSC" warnings. (Code P0455 in my case. Really glad I bought that OBDII tool--resetting the codes is a snap!)

I knew that a loose gas cap could cause this, so normally I just give it a twist and it tightens. Now I found that no matter how many "clicks" I tightened the gas cap, it would not cinch down snug. The lightest turn the opposite way would open it.

I was all set to head over to CarQuest for a replacement filler cap. But I thought I'd inspect mine first just to see why it stopped holding. Upon inspection, I saw that what holds the cap in place is compression of the rubber O-ring at the back of the cap, which compresses against the filler neck. That apparently was no longer happening.

I carefully removed the O-ring from the cap--using screwdrivers to lift it over the edge of the groove it sits in. Like removing a bike tire from the rim--work your way around. Then I cut a strip of electrical tape about 10" long, and 1/4" wide. I wound this into the curved groove where the O-ring normally sits, just to build up a little thickness. Put the O-ring back in place. Done.

Now the cap tightens like it's supposed to, and thus far, it has stopped the VSC error codes. Don't know if it will fix your issue or not, Good luck.

SOURCE: VSC/ Check Engine Light

My 2000 Lexus GS 400 just had the VSC/VSC off light and the check engine light come on. I would have to push the accelarator peddle all the way down to get it to go. Took it to the Toyota dealer and the code pulled up as the Throttle Position Sensor was out. Purchased one and having it put in. Will update if this fixes the problem.

SOURCE: TRAC OFF, VSC, and check engine lights are on in my 2004 Lexus ES

Often caused by a loose gas cap or fouled or failed air fuel O2 sensor. Check your gas cap is fully ratcheted, Drive a day or two. If lights don't clear you will need a code reader attached to the car to diagnose.

SOURCE: Jammed cds in my RX 330

I also have a 2005 Lexus RX 330. Hold down the eject button with the car on. When you completly turn off the car the cd's should eject. You may have to do this a few times before it works. I also had this same problem with my 2003 Honda Accord. I clean the cd player regularly but I have found that it does not always eliminate the cd errors. I purchased a cassette adapter for my I pod for $12.99 and have been happy and error free ever since! Good Luck

My lexus rx 330 Vsc and check light is ON. Scan shows codes C1224, 1201 and PO 793. How do I fix it


Fix the P0793 code. Intermediate shaft speed sensor. The others will go away, depending on the year of your car. Any transmission codes and some engine codes will shut down ABS and VSC systems.

The check engine light and VSC light came on in my 2005 highlander. 168,000 miles


P0420 & P0430 You need new catalytic converter
The P0430 check engine light code, like P0420, means the catalyst system efficiency is below the required threshold. Simply put, this means your car is adding more pollution into the air than it's supposed to.

Catalytic Converter Replacement Repair Cost


code p0420 refers to catalytic converter system bank 1 --efficiency below threshold ===causes -- catalytic converter ---wiring---HO2S 2 sensor
The cheapest part to replace is the HO22S sensor so I would do that first. Bump the cat converter soundly with the heal of your hand and if it rattles it needs replacing as it will be cracked internally. Dismiss any tinny rattle as that will be the heat shield loose
The time taken to replace both in an accredited shop will be less than 1 hour so it may pay to shop around and compare prices on the converter and labour costs.

What is the meaning of vfc in the 2005 rx 330 lexus


We are assuming that you are talking about the VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) and VSC OFF message.

Stability control systems are offered under the following names: On Lexus is called as Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRAC) systems.

It can mean a lot of things. Usually, it is an engine fault that leads to VSC cancellation as well. Scanning for actual fault codes would be a good start.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.
