Your throttle position sensor might be stuck on the wide open throttle setting!

Do you have any check engine codes? Is the check engine light on?

It might not be if the TPS is still in the normal range...but is just sticking open.

I have a gs 400 lexus, the rear warning light lamp comes on when i depress the brake. I replaced the brake bulbs , every lamp seems to operate well.

some brands of bulbs have too much resistance and will cause the light to come on or you still have a bulb out .
