    Don't be overly concerned that the car has two separate faults. Many sensors are shared by both the engine and vehicle stability control system. Unfortunately a scan tool is needed to retrieve codes stored in the computer of your car. Most generic scan tool will read the code stored it does not have to be Lexus specific.
