Question about 2001 Lexus RX 300

2002 RX 300

Hi guys,
my check engine, VSC and TRAC lights came on...again. Transmission rides rough, will not go into reverse and has very low power in drive. This morning I had to put the car in a lower gear to make it to work. This same problem occurred about a year ago and had to replace a sensor. My Lexus is a RX 300. 2002 with about 87,000 miles. Could this be another sensor or is transmission going bad?

Thanks!!

I have a 2001 RX 300 and mine has done the same thing. The first time it happened the dealer had me bring it in. It was under warranty, and they replaced something, which I can't remember. Then it happened a year or so ago, and the service rep at the dealership told me that her car does the same thing, and I should just let it reboot itself in a day or so. It did it two days ago driving back from a long trip. The service rep said to bring it in because she didn't know what was going on (I think she was new).

It's now resolved itself again. It must be a fluke with the model, but I don't worry about it.

Lexus 2002 RX300 - What is it when the Trac Off, VSC & Check Engine lights are on and the DTC code says cylynder 1 and 6 misfire


You could have a bad coil pack or a bad fuel injector. swap out the coil packs from the misfiring cylinders and put them in the cylinders that are known to be firing correctly to narrow it down to determine if it is the coil pack first. When is the last time you changed the spark plugs? Pull them out of the misfiring cylinders to check the condition of the plugs.

HOW TO RESET TRAC OFF AND VSC INDICATOR FOR 4 RUNNER 2004


VSC and trac off,will generally be reset with a readout tool plugged in under dash, knee level drivers side.
When these lighst come on together it is often a sign of improper air fuel mixture, sometimes as a result of running extremely low on fuel or leaving a gas cap loose.
It may also be a symptom of a clogged O2 sensor in one of 3 locations. When resetting the LEDs a readout will analise the cause.

Just got car service for 75,000 miles also had new


Sounds to me like someone has perhaps knocked the ABS sensor while working on the brakes. The ECU in these cars interlinks various stability and braking components. Go back to the service center and ask them to put a code reader on the car and get a read out. It may only require that they reset the fault codes, but do not delay. On some Lexus vehicles these lights will also come on when the battery has been disconnected and there will be a reset for the programs, but the TRAC off light has never come on on my 2001 when doing brakes or battery swap.
nice find an 02 with 75,000. My 2001 is over 160

VSC warning light and check engine code 786 on Lexus 2002 RX300


The VSC warning light, Trac Off and check engine is probably an easy fix. If you look under the air filter/cleaner box there is probably a rubber hose that has been disconnected from a steel line. This is common if you have had the oil changed recently, the tech will check the ail filter and doesn't realize the hose has been disconnected.

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.
