My 1990 Lexus LS 400 stalls unexpedly (at any speed).When put in neutral, it starts up and runs fine for a few minutes then stalls again. Why?

Your fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator are not supplying constant fuel pressure. Too much or too little is causing it to kill. You can pull the vacuum line from the regulaor and check for gas. If there is none, you need a pump, it is weak.

I have a 1991 Lexus 400. It cranks but won't start.If it does start it stalls or runs perfectly for days.Any thoughts??

Check battery cables. MAke sure they are on tight, and not corroded. Check ground wires inside the engine compartment, and even inside the car, for tightness. Try a good fuel injector cleaner, like Lucas.

Simple fix... Just replace the brake light switch. It is located on the brake pedal arm about 6 inches above the pedal, it will have a plug going to it as well.
