Question about 2006 Lexus Is 250

Open Question

I bought a 2006 Certified Used Lexus IS250 10 months ago. Twice now while driving the P/S light comes on and I lose power steering. The 2nd time the VSC and ABS lights came on too. I pulled over and turned off the car. When I restarted it the P/S light was still on and still no power steering so I managed to make it back home. The next morning it was fine. The dealer told me the car registered a problem on one of 9 computers but they don't know which one and they aren't going to ask their tech to search for the short in the wire harness unless I pay for his time. That my Certified warranty doesn't cover diagnostics. Has anyone ever heard of this problem and anyone ever heard of a Certified Warranty not covering my issue?

SOURCE: Lexus RX300 engine light n VSC light comes on

VSC means Vehicle Stability Control.

It comes on when the sensor send a signal that the vehicle is not stable on the ground.....check the wheel balancing and alignment and the air pressure of your tires too.

Good luck.

check your tire pressures and then press the tire pressure monitoring recalibrate button under your steering wheel on the lower instrument panel.

SOURCE: vsc light on my lexus rx 350 2007 .

I'm not sure about the Lexus, but Nissan and other vehicles with the VSC usually will be on until you can drive on a straight road for approximately 2-3 miles without stops and about the same speed during the reset process. The interstate or some type of hwy will reset this light once the vehicle has learned the Vehicle Stabilization Control in which is learned by the way you drive and enables the car to have stable control. Hope this helps out, if this doesn't work, I would take it in for more diagnostics.

Check the air duct hose between the air mass flow sensor and the throttle body maybe cracked , if it's not check your mass flow sensor if you have check engine light on ,it's better to scan your car by OBD 2 scanner

1996 Lexus ES300 Has Sprung a leak in the power steering

My 2005 ES330 had to have new hoses last year. It was losing a little fluid and I was topping it up once a month when the power steering started making whining noises. Eventually, I was topping it up one a week, and I had used a full bottle of fluid, I bought another and booked it in for the next week. You just need hoses. Dealership charged me about $375, but I did get to borrow an LX350.

Wheel is extremely hard to turn and is very very sitff. Power steering fluid was changed and the wheel got a bit better but a couple weeks later the wheel got even worse then it was before

Check the power steering computer. Mine went out twice, once while driving 75 MPH on the freeway and was finally replaced. All the lights came on including the ABS light. The dealer tried to tell me he was going to charge me to diagnose the problem since he had never seen it before and I only had a Certified used car warranty. B.S. They had the car three weeks. I'm getting rid of it.

Have 2007 Santa Fe which I love - problem: Drove thru puddle about 3 months ago - Battery light came on & lost power steering, but after 1 minute, batt light off & steering fine... Then, on very...

the crank pulleys (also called a harmonic dampener) on these vehicle are a fairly common failure. as they begin to break apart, the pulley will begin to have a wobble as the engine runs, causing the drive belts that power your alternator, power steering, etc to loosen off. when the belts then get wet, combined with being loose, they will slip, causing your accessories not to work. hope this was helpful!

2001 rodeo reduced power

I just went through this with my 2001 rodeo and the dealer needed to replace several parts over several weeks because they could not get the problem to go away.

-APP/throttle pos. sensor needs calibration/replacement
-air idle control needs replacing
-throttle body needs replacement
After months of going back and forth to the deal with the same problem, the throttle body was replaced last week and the problem has dissapeared....for now...
