SOURCE: Trac light and Check engine light came on how to FIX?

Here's the best way I know to fix this problem (as you said:) without paying. Make friends with someone who works at a professional garage. Get them to scan the computer and gather the codes. Or you could marry into the family of someone that works in the industry. You need to see which code was saved in the computer ( and there are MANY possibilities) before you can have any idea what to do next. Try to look for a coupon in the mailers that come to your home or in the local papers. Many shops will offer a special price for scanning your car's PCM (comp.) so they can get you in the door and make you a customer. You should be able to get this done for 40 to 60 bucks depending on where you live. It takes a few minutes, but some shops charge a full Labor Hour for the service. It's a Lexus, not a VW Beetle, so the price of ownership includes maintenance, you dig?

SOURCE: 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.

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.

chances are you have a vacuum leak. it is going to take some searching and looking at vacuum hoses.

Check engine light is flashing, trac off light is on, high rpm at slow speed and car shakes lightly.


I will assume that is not your first check light, to show
up on the dash of any vehicle you have owned

Always the same routine

Check for codes,diagnose them &
component test to find a problem

The engine falters at low speeds


The flashing engine check light means a code is being stored in the computer. You need to have this code read and this will tell you what system is malfunctioning.

My engine light and trac off light is on. what does the trac off light mean?


The traction control system uses the engine to slow down or speed up the car when necessary.
If the check engine light is on the traction control will not work.
You may have a problem with both systems, but having the computers scanned for trouble codes will point you in the right direction.

Hi, I have a 2006 Altima with 31,500 miles. Recently, the engine start shaking when car is Idle but I still feel the shake when driving or at red lights. My second problem is a weird loud (humming) noise...


You don't need to change the spark plugs since it has only 31.5 K. The plugs should last 60K. There is a an adjustment at the gas cable end at engine to increase the idle a little bit. You can increase rpm at idle to 600 RPM. Since your RPM at idle is low that why it is shaking at idle, red lights. Let me know it it is shaking at high speed ( 2500 RPM)

1999 Alero stalling and trac off light coming on


does the rpm motor kick down? you may need to check your vacuum hoses, and also you may want to check your exaust, sounds wierd but that can cause the car to stall at times.as for the traction light, your hitting the brakes to hard. try slowing down a little slower while stopping, and keep distance for saftey.. if you can take it a little slower at lights and turns, without braking hard and it stops stalling.

Engine idling varies depending on light or aircon is on/off


dude its normal for first start or cold start that the idle is ok but it must high than normal... its normal because the engine is warming up it self... when it gets warm, the idle speed will return normal idle... your engine is 1200cc, it has not much HP for a great load... and i know its a carburatored engine and its an old engine, your head lyt and a/c fan and aux fan and all the electrical system on your car, uses the HP of you engine and its a lot of load to the alternator driven by the engine to generate an electricity they need and thats why the engine rpm speed lowering down to dead and its shake. thats why when you use your lyts or all electrical, you engine is weakening... the best remede is adjusting you idle speed... its located behind the carburator.. its a small black knob.. just make a twist each eighter way and you'll find out if your idle rpm speed ts incresing or decresing.. just increase it and try opening your lyts and other electrical, if its still shaking then adjust it a little more
