If the groaning sound is still happening, you are probably low on power steering fluid. I suggest starting there. Remove the cap and check the dipstick attached to the cap. The reason the sound would go away at high speeds is that you don't turn the wheel as sharply at higher speeds so the pump is not trying to pump air ( that's the groaning sound ).
If you are low on PS fluid, fill it but check for leaks for a while. Look under the car in the morning for fluid. If you spot a leak, take it back to whomever replaced the hose and have them fix it.
As far as the engine light goes, first make sure the gas cap is on properly, meaning all the way. Turn it till you hear it click several times. If that is all it was, the light should go off after 20-30 miles or so. If it stays on, try changing the gas cap. That is probably one of the cheapest routes to go.

hello freddy - the good news is that your lexus has a self diagnosis system built into it. this is what you need to do.
drive to an auto zone or similar autoparts store and have them put your lexus on their computer to scan for trouble codes. they offer this as a free service. with a little luck this scan will isolate the problem and the fix will be quick and easy.
if this doesnt fix it for you get back and let me know what codes popped up.
here is a link to the lexus trouble codes so you will have added insight. good luck.

replace the power steering pump. make sure you get crush rings for the hoses too. dont use stop leak stuff either because it WILL clog the filter in the power steering rack and then youll have to replace that too.
