Have you tried the "valet switch" in the glove box? This switch is used when you don't want a service person in your glove box OR your trunk - only the physical key will open the trunk or glove box. The trunk opener switch under the dash won't work either if the "valet switch" is activated.
The switch is located at the top of the glove box on my GS350 - yours may be different.

Caridad, there could be a lot of things making noises from engine, causes could be low on oil, belts/tensioner/water pump bearing, worn internal engine bearings, etc. You will have to have a good Technician diagnose and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) is used when for example if it was day time and you entered a dark parking garage the lights would detect and adapt to the lighting environment which will then automatically trigger the Bi-xenon headlights to turn on themselves in order to illuminate the road ahead when the vehicle anticipates it is necessary. It is an automatic feature which turns on by itself for your convenience therefore you wont have to induce any actions, the car does it all for you. And most Importantly (I quote) "the Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) automatically controls the headlight lighting pattern according to steering angle and vehicle speed to help provide better visibility at night You will need to see the dealer on this, the part that causes this is dealer only

Changing vin by self is illegal if thats what your doing
If its door plates or firewall plates dealer has to order new and you have to take down to mvd and register numbers
If license plate unscrew it
But overall changing any of the cars factory registered plates is illegal without registering them threw proper channels first

the vehicle speed sensors are on all four wheels, not cheap and even if you change them all, the light still needs to be shut off with a anti-lock brake scanner. either live with the light or bring it to a brake shop that has the tool.

it's just your tire inflation pressure warning system. With the same button's you use to input the MPH warning lights or RPM warning lights, go to the Tire pressure settings and change it back to Default / Tire1.. I forget what it says. Look in your manual if this doesnt help... I am positive that this is the cause.
