Unscrew the gas cap, wait 30 sec and screw it back on making 3 clicks/cracks. Should be ok in a day or two.

SOURCE: trac off and check engine light for lexus es 300

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.

SOURCE: just got car service for 75,000 miles also had new

Sounds to me like someone has perhaps knocked the ABS sensor while working on the brakes. The ECU in these cars interlinks various stability and braking components. Go back to the service center and ask them to put a code reader on the car and get a read out. It may only require that they reset the fault codes, but do not delay. On some Lexus vehicles these lights will also come on when the battery has been disconnected and there will be a reset for the programs, but the TRAC off light has never come on on my 2001 when doing brakes or battery swap.
nice find an 02 with 75,000. My 2001 is over 160

VSC = vehicle stability control.
Before take it to the shop,do few car wash to clean out dirt around the ABS sensors.
The problem is not under the hood.
One or more ABS/TCS is giving out of range reading to the computer.
Clean the wheels and try again.

Getting message CHECK VSC with engine warning and traction lights on permanently.


Whenever the check engine light comes on it also turns on the trac and the vsc, if figures the trac and vsc can not operate properly if the engine is not running correctly, when check eng light turns off the rest will also, the first thing to do is have the computer scanned, there will be stored codes, these codes will tell you where the problem is, many auto part stores will scan it and give you the codes, if you get the codes i could help you further good luck.

I have a Lexus GS 300 and had the lower driver side ball joint replaced. After the VSC,ABS and VSC Off lights have remained on.


check the connection to the wheel speed sensor, or that the sensor has not been pumped out of line, the trac and antilock all work off the same sensor

TRAC OFF, VSC, and check engine lights are on in my 2004 Lexus ES 330


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.
