Humming noise from engine when driving lexus


Your wheels each have rotor speed sensors...
2006 LEXUS GX470 4 7L V8 ABS Wheel Speed Sensor RockAuto

These are easily bent or misaligned... and can be
put into a position of INTERFERENCE with the
(particularly ... in YOUR case "RIGHT FRONT")
ROTOR...

These parts ARE NOT CHEAP... and WILL
ADVERSELY impact the operation of BOTH
TRACTION CONTROL & ABS (anti-lock brakes)...

It is a WORK ERROR... while your BRAKES
were being "inspected" ... your
rookie dealer "mechanic" most likely did
something...

ROAD-HAZARDS "can" break these parts...
but reasoning with your fully functioning
brain... (OCCAM'S Razor)
Occam razor Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

You should NEVER HAVE LEFT... without
having a SERVICE PERSON making a note
of your ABS & TRC lights...

You do have rights... and government
licensing boards... In the unlikely event
your "dealer" FAILS to recognize their
obvious WORK ERROR...

OCCAMS razor:
When you hear the thunder of hoof
beats... Think HORSES... (not Zebras)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zebra_(medicine)

I have had many BAD experiences with
DEALERS... (& I trust my lying eyes)...

I'm just saying (in my opinion)... Get back to that
"DEALER"... pronto...!!

Had new tries put on yesterday and now traction control light and engine check light have come on


Any time the check engine light comes on the traction control will be disabled and the light will also come on. Start with scanning the engine computer for trouble codes to see why the check engine light is on.

RECENTLY MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON THEN MY TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT CAME ON....THE CODE GIVEN TO ME FOR THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WAS P0171 COULD THEY BE RELATED....ALSO CAR IS SHIFTING REAL ROUGH


Engine light on means that your lambda probe is malfunctioning just raplace it and it will come off,or the mixture of gases and gas is not proper and you need to tune the car at bosch motronic.
traction control warning light means that the sensors analizing it are malfunctioning and or you have a serious problem on the traction control

Check Engine light and traction control light stay


there is nothing to do here but have the dealer run a scanner test to see what trouble codes were set with the lights coming on, until then there is no way to tell what the problem might be as there are over 200 possibilities.
