The light came on after I had been driving the car for about 50 miles

After resetting code it comes back in 40 . I know the shift solenoid is in the transmission pan located at the valve body is only one clip two electrical plugs the part is $200 and I want to make sure that I get the right part.

I changed my headlights in January, unplugged the battery in order to do it myself. After reconnecting, had to reset the seat memorys, power windows, that normal stuff. But since then, sometimes the thermostat above the navigation reads the wrong temperature, or will read in Celsius while the thermostat near the odometer reads the correct temp. Also, the A/C won't blow heat, will not blow hard, and no matter what directional setting, will only blow out of windshield defroster and a little out of the middle vents. Air works and but for the first 30 seconds to 1 minute that the car is on, it won't allow me to turn on the A/C. The windshield defrost button will just blink. Also, if I have the A/C running and turn the car off, when I turn it back on, the A/C is back off. Toyota told me I need a new thermostat and coolant flush but my old Mazda dealership I worked at that new very little about Lexus said it sounds like Toyota just wanted my money and it doesn't seem like the problem is the thermostat.

Error message read "Shift solenoid C performance or stuck off"

Here is Video of whats going on. The rpms drop from the corresponding rpm to speed when the vehicle slows down rapidly 10 mph or more. The rpms basically go down to 500 rpm and bounce up to the corresponding speed. This car is new to me

this is a 2010 gs350, when driving I get a sound (howling) from the front end that gets louder the faster you go. sounds like it has mud grips on the front. I have replaced the tires and checked the hubs (car has 85k on it) hubs feel good and noise doesn't seem to change under a heavy load or in corners. car drives fine and struts look good (I don't see any leaks in them and car rides good) any ideas on what else to look for? before I take it to the shop to get racked over the coals

Make the car feel like it's grabbing on and off. Is this normal?

When I put my heated seat on ( it has 3 settings) with in a few minutes or less than a half mile it drops to setting 2 or medium, then the same thing to 1 or low. Then it shuts off completely. This is all in less than 5 minutes . I have a 2004 Pontiac with heated seats, I set it high or low & it stays on, whatever I set it at. No problem whatsoever. This can't be normal to have to keep putting back on over & over again. Need help please !!

two days ago,i was driving on the car started too make a clattering noise from the engine..i pulled over .try to turn the car on and clattering noise got louder and the car wouldn't I just called a tow truck .Don't know what happened.the car was fine, Need help !!!!

so I cant listen to anything through my stereo unless I switch the headlights off

Valet switch already checked. Not the problem.

when gauge says 1/4 of tank left it only takes 10 gallons to fill when full i go 20 Miles and gauge say i used 1/4 of tank but when you fill it up it only takes 1 gallon

There seems to be no damage to the brackets that hold the fog light. From what I understand, you access the fog light by accessing the light from the guard in front of the wheel. Is it as simple as getting nails and screwing the light back into place? If so, where do I get these nails? Affirmation and specifics would be great.

I dont see any oil leaks coming from motor and its not low on oil.

wont take address for directions

When the default indicator is active, the vehicle looses power, won't accelerate, and looses traction when I turn a curve.

Just had 60k checkup although only had 55k miles on it. Nothing found. Now at 59k, found I need new catalytic converter, y pipe, and there is no after market parts yet. Was told by Lexus dealer warranty ran out at 50k. Looking at $3500.00 in costs? Any remedy with dealer or Lexus? Also had 05 GS, with 130k miles on it, and exhaust system never went out. Thanks.

i got into accident and my left front lights got smashed,
