Sometimes you can find a used ECU at a wrecking yard. If they have the ECU, they probably have everything you need. Not sure why you would need a new immobilizer or cluster. I would try just swapping out the ECU. The guys at the salvage yard may know more advice. Good luck. By the way, you can find parts like this at car-part.com. It will use your zip code to find the one closest to you.

replace the ECU ( ECM ) with another unit
you will need to get one from another exact same vehicle and there should not be any other problems other than the immobilizer which you can get reprogrammed or have the keys reprogrammed to the ECM
The unit getting hot and draining the battery indicates that it has failed and has to be replaced
Wreckers / junk yards that dismantle your make of vehicle will have comparable units st a reasonable price ( probably an arm but you will keep your leg)
or there are companies that can recondition your existing unit or sell you an service exchange unit for around 2/3 the price of a new genuine unit

Stuck in 3rd gear because you are on safe mode.
That's part of Toyota / Lexus technology to give you advantage to drive to mechanic without towing your car.

To get it shifts again do this:
Reset your ECU by pulling negative cable off your 12 v battery.
wait 5 mins then connect your negative cable on your battery.

you also need to scan your car to find out the problems.

check air pressure first in tires but sometimes the vehicle has to cycle thru to reset --or can go and have trouble code read--recommended-- most auto stores offer this service for free to make sure their is actually no problem and they can clear codes as well

remove front wheels and check brake pads. If too thin, VSC will automatically turn off due to brake issues.

look at the wiring at the rear end and check for broken wires , broken wires at the connectors , loose harness connections ,dirty connections , power at the harness plug at the ABS and ECM unit..

this will most likely to be a signal from one of the ABS sensors not in the correct range , it could just be a worn wire , and the signal to the ECU isn't making the correct adjustment/reading , will need to be checked by a auto electrician as they will know the correct procedure to trace the fault as you could spend hours searching and not find anything, do the brakes feel like they are operating correctly? if not i'd have this seen to as soon as possible

check trouble codes first if nothing then may be really dirty. buy 2 cans of injector cleaner put in the gas tank add one gallon of gas and drive till you need more gas should clean good if dirty, if not that then see a mechanic.
