No. Take it to get a free code read from a local car parts store like Advanced Auto.

SOURCE: Service engine light comes on

This GM's definition of this code:
P1404 - Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Closed Position Performance
The most common reasons are either the EGR valve position sensor is defective, or the EGR valve is not fully closed due to carbon.

SOURCE: 2002 Lexus ES300 Check Engine Light

You can disconnect your battery for a short period of time, 5-10 minutes should do it. There is no guarantee that the check engine light will not come back on in time, but it will make it go away at least temporarily.If you go to Autozone, 99% of the time they will hook up a code reader and diagnose your problem. It may be a minor and/or inexpensive fix. Please vote appropriately and leave feedback. I hope this helps and good luck.

SOURCE: 2004 lexus rx330 what does vsc light indicate

VSC is Vehicle Stability Control. This is and electronic sensing which monitors and combines performance of braking, wheel slippage and handling, ect.
If this light comes on along with check engine light, it can be caused by a loose gas cap or faulty o2 sensor.

Get your codes read, I bought my code reader for less than $20 on ebay. Your looking for a OBD II code reader. Just a basic model tells you what the code is and can be translated by entering fault code into google.

How to fix GX470 lexus suv 2007 vsc/tract/ engine light on


On this make the warning lights all come on together, the check engine light is the cause of all.
Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

What is the meaning of vfc in the 2005 rx 330 lexus


We are assuming that you are talking about the VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) and VSC OFF message.

Stability control systems are offered under the following names: On Lexus is called as Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRAC) systems.

It can mean a lot of things. Usually, it is an engine fault that leads to VSC cancellation as well. Scanning for actual fault codes would be a good start.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

The Check Engine light, Trac OFF and Vsc lights are on. I cleaned the MAF sensor on the air intake. but it didn't help. What should I do?


Since your "check engine" is ON, have some fault codes stored in the PCM (Powertrain Control Module / computer); to know exactly about what codes are the, will need scanned the PCM wit OBD II scaner reader tool; some autozone or autoshop with this tool make this for free. The check engine light can come on for 1 of about 200 different reasons, most times it's something simple such as a evap leak or loose gas cap.

As a factory default any time the check engine light comes on the TRAC and VSC systems are disabled as a default.

Soft reset could be disconnected the battery few minutes (sometimes work), but if the codes turn on again, is confirm, have fault codes stored and need to know what is to solve it.

Try this ans send us news about this code numbers founded.

My engine light is on


when the check engine light is on it is to alert you to the fact that a trouble code has been stored in the computers memory, there are over 200 such fault/trouble codes so guessing is not an option, u will need to have the OBD 2 engine control system tested and then post the trouble code back here, there will be a code.
