You didn't mention YEAR or MODEL, but if it is like most Lexus vehicles, the spare tire winch has a square "nipple" on the end of it, not a "slot". You slide the jacking extension square-end first into the tube and onto the nipple. (This usually requires connecting two or more jacking extension pieces together) You then use the lug wrench (which has a square hole in it) to turn the jacking extension to lower the tire.

There is NO button to turn off. You need to have the codes scanned and reset, Something triggered a fault and lights came on. Lexus can do it and any good shop can read the codes and reset your lights.

This problem could be something major. But it could be something simple and safe to drive. But I would suggest towing it to be safe. Usually when the check engine light blinks it is something that is dangerous to drive. But not always. But I would suggest having the car towed to be on the safe side.

Disconnect the battery for 15 minutes. This will reset the computer. If the problem happens when you hook the battery back up then something is causing the security system to fault. Weather it is the security computer or a faulty switch. It is very hard to determine without disconnecting and troubleshooting switches etc. But hopefully disconnecting the battery will get you going again.

The VSC light.VSC stands for "Vehicle Stability Control". disconnect the negative battery terminal for few minutes then reconnect it again then check out if the VSC light is still coming On. ------------ But if this does not help you to solve the problem then this "VSC light On" problem is related to loose vacuum hose.Properly check the air filter the vacuum hose thats behind the air box ,if this vacuum hose is loose then you will get the VSC light. -------------- Also check the gas cap,if the gas cap gets loose then this can cause the problem. ----------- but if all this possibilities checked ok and still the VSc light stays on,then this problem has to be checked by retrieving codes at diagnosis center.You can get your car scanned at www.autozone.com.Its absolutely free to get car scanned at auto zone service center.Once the error codes are retrieved the exact faulty part can be replaced as per the codes. ---------------] Keep updated for any more queries.Thanks.

Don't have a diagram.

Remove drain plug from oil pan. This is the lowest part of the engine. Looks like a pan. There is a drain screw. Remove the screw and let all the oil drips out unitl it completely stops dripping. Then put the plug back in.

Then grab the oil filter. Usually orange, whilte, blue, or black. Turn it counter-clockwise until it comes off. Once it is off, let it completely drain. Put the new filter on.

Put in 5 quarts of oil. Let it sit for 5 minutes and check it. See if oil needs to be added. 5 or 5 1/2 quarts. Owners manual will tell you how much for your car. 5 - 5 1/2 quarts is most common.
Now drive away!

i believe it is 25 feet from a level line on the wall, then on the sides of the lights there are screws with springs, these will move the beam of light. I may be wrong on the distance but for some reason 25 feet is what I remember. Hope this helps tim

I don't know the cure but it is probable the car's brain thinks the ignition key is still in the ignition, steering not locked - you did the impossible, probably because the key, lock and interlock is worn and that being so it might be possible with some fiddling and gentle tapping of the lock to either cause the steering to finish locking or to reverse the process.

I think the steering must lock before it will accept the key. If fiddling with it doesn't work, I think it could become expensive and inconvenient.

I don't know how the CV axels associate with the ABS...need to have your ABS scanned for trouble codes...could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor
