Question about 2002 Lexus LS 430
It is on about 95% of the time and then goes off. I scanned and showed a code that relates to left bank timing belt stretched or jumped a cog but the engine runs fine as always. Not DTC could be found for the vehicle stability control. Puzzled?
Everything that you have said about the P1346 error code is correct. Ironically, this is not a totaly uncommon thing with Lexus. I have heard of this numerous times and most of the time, the driver of the car can't really feel any difference and thinks that there is nothing wrong. It seems that your timing belt is of by just a notch/tooth or so and that the timing is off by so little that you just aren't feeling it. That being said, if it were my car, I would get it into the shop and have them take a look at it. the timing either needs to be readjusted or you need a new belt because it has streched slightly. I wouldn't take the chance of it causing problems down the road. Let me know if I can help you with anything else. Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

Could be a problem with one of your ignition coils (since it is flashing) or MAF sensor issue.
Real thing to do here is to take your vehicle buy an AutoZone and they can usually scan the codes in your vehicle for free. If you bring back the codes, I can go over them with you and you will have a much better idea of what is wrong
