This has been happening to my car as well. It typically happens when your oxygen sensors start to wear out. Mine does it once in a while and I have the local auto store reset it. Go to your nearest auto store and have them tell you what code it is and ask them to reset the OBD so the light goes out. If the light comes on right away and the code has to do with your oxygen sensors, have them replaced. There are three, two are easy to replace, one takes some effort as it is in a tough to get to spot. The dealer will charge you a fortune to replace them so do it yourself or through a local mechanic. It is a very simple task other then the access.

I just changed the cabin filter of my ES300. I found the instructions on the manual, under airconditioning and audio. It's pretty easy to do. I bought the filter from Kragen's for $21.95.

SOURCE: Check engine light/gas cap will not stay tight.

yes the gas cap could cause this,also check evap. purge solenoid and hoses for cracks or kinks,the solenoid is on the inner fender and has 2 hoses, one to the intake and one to the canister, the most common cause of this code is a defective purge solenoid.

Trac off check engine


Newer cars do not like jumping other cars,because of voltage spikes.Check any and all fuses.You might have to replace the computer.

2003 lexus es300 won't start... radio lights and windows work. Tried a jump start, still doesnt work...


Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

I have a 2000 lexus es300 and my check engine light and trac off light is on and my engine is not running very well, it sounds like it's in a strain at about 60mph


Get the check engine light scanned by a mechanic. (Some parts store will do this for free, but you may not get a good answer!) This may lead you to the issue with the running problem. Start there.

I have a 2001 Lexus ES300 that has been fixed way too many times. The lights Check Engine and Trac Off are now on and I am out of patience. It has approx. 110000 miles and runs otherwise great. Can't...


Hi. If you find an answer to your problem with the trac off/engine light comming on way too often, please tell me so I can get my wifes 2001 es300 fixed. The dealer claims to have replaced the computer and numerous sensors on it's many trips back to the car lot. Once, it was kept for two months with the same problem comming back after 72 hours of regular use. I found, if you disconnect the battery for app. 20 seconds, then rehook it the lights on the dash go off for about 3 days. Help!!!

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.

I have a 99 lexus es300 and the check engine light+trac off sign posts. i normally disconnect the neg. cord on batt and it works but is that sign a serious problem. should i take it to mechanic and get it...


if u disconnect the battery and the light comes off, but then comes back on that means that there is something wrong. It could be something simple or could be major. only way to know to bring it to the dealer or repair shop and have them hook up a scanner to it. as far as the Trac off light, that comes when the check eng lite comes on. your vehicle turns off the traction control (trac off) when u have a fault code which is why the check eng light is on.
