    Im having the same problem, what the heck is it?

    depends if the abs and vsc light is on. but the vsc and the check engine light are seperate issues. check engine can be anything. most likely an o2 sensor or timing belt needed. and vsc has to do with your sensors located by your calibers.

    i would check your battery and alternator first. then trans sensors. find a cheap mechanic to plug it in to a diagnostic. because theres a variety of things it can be. all sensors whether in your trans or vsc. or you just have to change your timing belt.

My check engine light and vsc light is on and when you try to accelerate there is no power. what needs to be fixed ?

get about five dollars out from your wallet and go buy fuel, then wet the interior of your GS300 with that liquid and light it up. It will fix your problem.

Engine light, vsc, vsc off come on. code P0121 and P0120

It is your Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), the black component on the side of your Throttle Body normally on the right side as you look from the front of your engine.

Take the **** of a screw driver and tap the TPS, while the car is on, you might notice a fluctuation. tapping again may not yield a response but it is prone to jolts.

Before replacing it, try to check the resistance with a Digital Volt Meter on the terminals. You can check Haynes Book at a local supply store that might have it or go to a book store that carry the books. Each series of Lexus/Toyota have there own value. If the values are off, loosen the mounting screws and turn the TPS clock wise until you get the values needed. A slight movement is all that is needed or tolerated so take care not to over adjust or the fix will not work.

If you want to just replace it then not where it is positioned and place the new one starting at a counter clock wise postion then place the new TPS and rotate to exact position the old one was and then tighten down. Caution it is best to check the resistance values to insure proper adjustment.

Hope this helps

I have a 2003 lexus gs 300..the check engine light came on and the VSC OFF traction control came on and it stays on...i tried to turn if off, but the light just stays on

vsc shuts down any time check engine light comes on. repair engine light problem, reset computer monitoring system and vsc light will go off. must scan computer to pull codes for check engine light and go from there.

VSC/ Check Engine Light

My 2000 Lexus GS 400 just had the VSC/VSC off light and the check engine light come on. I would have to push the accelarator peddle all the way down to get it to go. Took it to the Toyota dealer and the code pulled up as the Throttle Position Sensor was out. Purchased one and having it put in. Will update if this fixes the problem.
