This may sound wierd, but by any chance did you just fill the gas tank? if so did you overfill it? Please clean around the cap and tank and tighten the cap back on the filler. Apparently, if you don't replace the gas cap correctly and tight enough this can cause the 'trac off' light to come one. It will go off a little while after the cap has been replaced correctly. If this does not clear the lights then It could be other issues with the drive train and you need to get the code pulled from the car to narrow it down. Autozone will pull the code from your car for free. I am hoping it is the gas cap, cause I see alot of these.

I have a 2000 lexus es300 and my check engine light and trac off light is on and my engine is not running very well, it sounds like it's in a strain at about 60mph


Get the check engine light scanned by a mechanic. (Some parts store will do this for free, but you may not get a good answer!) This may lead you to the issue with the running problem. Start there.

I have a 2001 Lexus ES300 that has been fixed way too many times. The lights Check Engine and Trac Off are now on and I am out of patience. It has approx. 110000 miles and runs otherwise great. Can't...


Hi. If you find an answer to your problem with the trac off/engine light comming on way too often, please tell me so I can get my wifes 2001 es300 fixed. The dealer claims to have replaced the computer and numerous sensors on it's many trips back to the car lot. Once, it was kept for two months with the same problem comming back after 72 hours of regular use. I found, if you disconnect the battery for app. 20 seconds, then rehook it the lights on the dash go off for about 3 days. Help!!!

My check engine trac off light came on


This happened to me as well, just a few weeks after buying our 1999 ES300. Took it into Lexus for regular maintenance and to check this out. Apparently, if you don't replace the gas cap correctly and tight enough this can cause the 'trac off' light to come one. It will go off a little while after the cap has been replaced correctly. This also happened with my 2006 Murano, 'check engine soon' message.

Trac off and check engine light for lexus es 300 check engine & trac control off lights & engine stutters while revving in park. Engine seems fine in drive... Reset lights without them returning...


A week ago, on my Lexus ES 300 (2001), "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights came on. This coincided with me filling the gas tank to the brim to round the dollar to be paid. I cleaned the gas tank cap and the tank opening. However, both lights persisted. On the same day, when I turned on the car again, there was a hesitance, a stuttering to come on. Both "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights were still on.

The next day, the car wouldn't come on at all. It sounded as the battery was dead. I couldn't even jump start the car. So, I got a new battery from Costco ($59) and put it in. It took 15-20 seconds of cranking to get the car started. Once it was started, the engine sounded fine and the RPM normal. The "Check Engine" light was off. However, the "Trac Off" was still on. I cleaned the gas tank cap one more time.

The next morning, when I turned the car on, there was no problems. It came on instantly as it used to be, didn't have any warning lights, and drove smoothly.

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.
