Actron 9575 standard OBD2 scanner. Lexus seems to be a 17 pin semi circular port. Research says car is OBD2 compliant. Leads me to believe adapter will be sufficient. Know I can spit out the codes by bridging TE1 and E1. Looking for a way to use my existing tools.
car running fine son got dui car was parked 3 months
It does not start moving according to my speed until about 10 to 15 minutes into driving. Recently had transmission done about 5 months ago and after sometime of regular driving it kicked back in but a week ago had to get a new alternator and now it has been 3 weeks and it is still delaying to work properly. My check engine light and TACT OFF light is also on and comes on after about 10 minutes later as well. What do I need to get fixed or done because I need to do an emissions test soon?
My car is acting strange it's done it before. It's like the car has a mind of its own. I used to put cheep gas and it started to shake and exhaust smoke would pour in my cabin. So I changed to premium after the mistake I made. So it ran great for a month but just recently it started again it would stall and shake and smoke would come in the whole 9 yards. The check engine light is not on so what's wrong? I love this car but I can't figure out the problem. Your suggestions and comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks
The 02 sensors available have a shorter wire and the old wire is about 2ft long. The available sensor now is about 6inches.
1999 Lexus SC400 only 59k miles but 14 years old. sounds fine just replaced 5 ignition coils and no current codes or problems. New plugs, drive belt, oil and air filters.
When I purchased the car it had 3 aftermarket cheap ign coils and I installed three good used oem coils. Still cutting out but better.
Car has been sitting for eight months. 59k miles new plugs installed year ago. Runs fine at high speeds with no hesitation.
The speedometer bounces all over. It registers 80 when I am doing 35, and it will stay at 40 when I am stopped. I am at a loss why it is malfunctioning

does anyone have information on whether there is a seperate fuse for the fog lamps in the sc400... checked bulbs, ok seems like no juice is coming to the lights...also checked all the fuses etc... everything is good. is there something / somewhere else in the car that may be impacting the operation of the fob lights?
radio in the lexus sc400...the vol/ on/ off module plugs into the head set.. the head set is good and amp is good,, there is an issue with the on/off/vol control itself.... if not, possibly looking to purchase a rebuilt / new one...
