How do i get rid of engine code 13 on my 1992 Lexus LS400

After i went over a street speed bump my engine started sputtering and had no power. i pulled up E.C. 13 (rpm signal no.2) so i checked the connections on the coils,the cam sensors & the crank sensor.reset the computer by disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes. started the car and no change.after i found out my timing was a litte off i decided to change the timing belt & cleaned the cam & crank sensors. Now my car starts & runs great until it warms up a little then it stalls. do i need to change yhe crank sensor.

You change no parts

The only parts that get replaced, are
those that fail a test

Have a repair shop take over & find a problem
thru proper testing vs: a wish & hope strategy
on a guess, by replacing good parts

SOURCE: i still have a really rough CEL code 13 on my 92 Lexus LS400. I have already checked all the connections at the cam sensors,crank sensor &both ignition coils. i'm wondering if i need to change th

Yeah, it's time for the timing belt. The crank and the cams sensors have to be on the the exact timing marks. When the belt gets old and start to stretch, it will pop the code. If you do it yourself, get a manual for it and follow it to a "T"

Where should i start my troubleshooting for engine trouble code 13 on my 1992 Lexus LS400. i've already checked most of the connecters & wire harnesses & they seem to be ok.


Hi Tony, Trouble code thirteen is referring to the RPM signal.circuitry. It can relate to the crank or cam pick up sensors and be a poor connection, but will normally make it difficult for the engine to start once switched off. Check all connections plug coil connections and cam and crank, one or more may simply be loose. and depending how you went over the humps, may simply be disconnected, but unplug and replug each. Appearances can be deceptive. Regards John

Lexus ls400 engine light and traction control light came on at the same time now low on power and takes a bit to get up to speed


You need to have someone scan the computer for trouble codes. Most auto parts stores in the US will do this for free in hopes of selling you some parts. The traction control uses the engine to maintain the stability of the car, so you may or may not have a second problem with that system.
