The "Check Engine" light as well as the "Track Off" and "VSC" lights came on. The Lexus dealership told me the cause was a failed O2 sensor and recommended I replace both front sensors even though only one was faulty. Total $850.00
Car now in for 3rd time in 2 months. 1-replace gas cap seal,2-replaced gas cap seal and some kind of "accumulator"
3- calling right now to see what they have found in the last 4 days

Sensor is not working but is fused to the exhaust manifold. Mechanic broke a tool trying to get it off.
we are now looking at replacing then exhaust manifold. $800 to replace a sensor !

got this checked out because of the light, and they told me it was a bad sensor that has no effect on how the car runs, but was going to be several hundred dollars to replace, so I didn't get it fixed, but the only problem is that the constant check engine light could be masking another problem.
