20 Most Recent 2008 Lexus Ls Questions & Answers

If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

most probably its a fuse. go to your manual and it'll indicate the location of your fuse box. most likely there are two under the left and right engine bay covers. pop the fuse covers and you'll find the fuse for the lighters. this info is also in the manual.

the cause of this in my opinion is that the rotors were not turned correctly the first time.
and at this point in time it is my suggestion that you replace the rotors and the pads all with NEW -- and this will fix your problem for good.
my next suggestion is to not go to the same mechanics that tried to fix it already. fine a new one.
in fact -- buy all the parts yourself and take them down to the brake mechanics ( or just a good well known shop mechanic ) and have them install the rotors and pads for you --- it will take 30 minutes ( or less ) and you for a fact know now that the problem is fixed and done right.
I have had bad rotor turns from shops and ever since my first bad run with them --- I just pay the extra 10 dollars and buy new rotors ( if the pads ever wear down that far to ruin the rotors -- which on my vehicle they dont -- it is always on my girlfriends car :-) ).
get NEW and you will be trouble free.

It is just to the passenger side of the crank pulley, right below the belt tensioner.

Doesn't seem possible! Connect it to a Computer Scan Tool to interrogate the fuel system and mix.

The ABS sensor also sends speed information for the speedometer, I think it is a common point. Did a sensor get damaged when getting a tow I wonder.

Sorry but we would need a much more detailed description of the noise in order to guess what it might be with a chance of accuracy.

By far the best thing you could do is take it to a trusted repairer or other experienced person to hear the noise and make the necessary inspection...

Either the generator is not charging the battery properly or a new battery is needed. If the battery is older than 5 years then should be replaced as it Will charge but not have full power.

If your tires are correctly inflated, and still the light stays on, do the following:
1. Park in a safe spot with no traffic and switch of the engine
2. Fill the tires to the needed PSI
3. Turn the key to the ON position
4. Press and hold the TPMS reset switch, and stop pressing when the light flashes thrice - now the light won't appear.
If this does not solve the problem, please go to the nearest dealership at the soonest and get your car inspected.
