Question about Lexus GS 300

1 Answer

I just bought a 2000 Lexus GS300. It has the VSC(Off) light on and it beeps once every 10-15 secs. The seller I bought it from said, it is due to the alignment. The car pulls to the left abruptly when take the hands off the stering, i noticed the wear of the front tires from the inside which is an indication of alignment. In addition, is there anything else that can cause the VSC lights to come one. Any expert advice will greatly appreciated. Once in a while the Brake light comes one as well. I am thinking it may be related to the braking system. Where do I start?

Hi

If you are talking about the "VSC Off" light, it means that the button to disengage your cars Vehicle Stability/Skid Control" system is engaged. Press the VSC button, the system should reengage, and the light should turn off.
If you are talking about the other VSC light, it means that your car has been forced to take evasive action to avoid a dangerous situation. For example, if you are driving on an icy road, and take a turn too tight, the vehicle may be forced to apply pressure to one of the brakes to prevent the car from loosing control. In this situation the VSC indicator light will light up to alert you that the action was taken, and remind you to possibly slow down.

If the car is pulling the computer will be trying to correct the car, smart car by the way, love this model.

Hope this helps
Regards

Dan

VSC/ Check Engine Light


My 2000 Lexus GS 400 just had the VSC/VSC off light and the check engine light come on. I would have to push the accelarator peddle all the way down to get it to go. Took it to the Toyota dealer and the code pulled up as the Throttle Position Sensor was out. Purchased one and having it put in. Will update if this fixes the problem.
