Traction control indicates that the sensor in the wheel hub may not be picking up a good signal.
The engine light is a separate issue, where the engine may have a sensor that is out of specifications, as far as the signals it is sending. These signals are out of range for the specs. recorded in the computer.

The engine will not run as efficiently when the service engine soon light is on.

Have codes scanned and go from there as far as diagnosing the problem(s).

Lexus fault codes erased


Yes the computer will reset itself if the trouble goes away. This is common thing. You probably had something in your traction slip. I would not worry about it.

Had new tires put on car yesterday and traction control and engine check light have come on today on 1999 lexus es300


Any time the check engine light comes on the traction control will be disabled and the light will also come on. Start with scanning the engine computer for trouble codes to see why the check engine light is on.

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.

My vsc light and the vsc off light is lit up on my 99 lexus gs400, what does it mean?


It it's like the ASC button/light on a BMW it means you have a problem with either you ABS, Traction Control or possibly one of the sensors. Sorry to say it but you should get it into a garage soon. When mine went on my BMW it was a wheel speed sensor and the car basically shut off the ABS and Traction Control as it's not working correctly. If you're not used to driving without these features it can lead to an intresting drive to say the least. I'd get it into a garage asap!!!

Engine lights


if you have Autozone or Advance auto part store near you they will check it for free and let you know what is wrong and also reset the light for you give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

I have a 99 lexus es300 and the check engine light+trac off sign posts. i normally disconnect the neg. cord on batt and it works but is that sign a serious problem. should i take it to mechanic and get it...


if u disconnect the battery and the light comes off, but then comes back on that means that there is something wrong. It could be something simple or could be major. only way to know to bring it to the dealer or repair shop and have them hook up a scanner to it. as far as the Trac off light, that comes when the check eng lite comes on. your vehicle turns off the traction control (trac off) when u have a fault code which is why the check eng light is on.
