I had my tires changed today and when i started driving my check vsc displayed and vsc off light turned on. Any idea what happened or any fixes.

Fuse is fine, but there is no sound

had bulb replaced. other bulb was good. lights work fine one time and the next time they don't

I can use my air but i dont know how to switch it over to heat

The left front head light does not stay on after cycling the head light switch, then the light stays on for a while

There is a coolant leak thats coming from a hole on the top of the throttle body. There is also a round metal plug that came out of the hole. Any suggestions?

Also want to know what a brake job will cost for all four

Gas pedal will not excellrate.

The remote controlled pivot of the outside rear view mirror still works.

only when car is cold ( first starting out my day) Then it's fine!


Steering seems much heavier than I would expect in a Lexus. Car has the "Sport suspension" not sure if that has anything to do with it. Tires inflated properly etc. 72 K on the car. Fluid topped up.

from the left hand side of the engine.The mileage is 101000Km and is fully serviced by dealership.

We thought the battery was dead and had it jumped drove and replaced the battery and drove it for 4 hours. Today it will not start!

shocks seem okay. sounds occur mostly over straight driving, sometimes on diff which direction. handles well enough. tires & alignment okay (both recent). clunking has been occurring from 2009 & becoming progressively more often.

Any suggestions?

speed and pulling off. I have had both Stabilizer links replaced. Noise still there.

I had no error codes prior to having new Michelin tires installed at Sams Club. Immediately after, CHECK VSC, TRAC OFF, and the RED EXCLAMATION point lights came on. Had a local repair shop read codes. Indicates YAW RATE SENSOR CALIBRATION, STEERING ANGLE, and several other codes. Google search indicates other owners having similar problems after tires installed, alignments, etc. that only required a Zero Point Calibration. Local repair shop was unable to reset the warning lights using their equipment. Could be a bizarre coincidence where an oxygen sensor or mass flow has gone bad, but seems more likely that one of the wheel sensors might have been damaged during tire installation. No Lexus dealer in my city (Pensacola), so stuck with local mechanics.

My battery died and I got a jump.he put the cableo n the wrong Post and blew out my nav system,radio and AC system.

It will turn over but won't start

Acts like it isn't getting gas?

I keep the AC off until I can make it to my mechanic or does that matter?

expensive to repair! Is he right? Buy car without nav,,,

The right side camber was pushed too far out during a alignment what need done to get a proper alignment?

When it died, the car's power steering went out but the stereo and interior electronics functioned fine. The car would start, but would hold idle and die again. Had it towed to a shop (not dealer) and they seem to be struggling with the repair. They seem to think there was a short that fried the alternator and fuel pump and they're struggling with reprograming the the fuel throttle sensor. Are these cars know to have electrical problems.
Thanks for you help

for about two hours

The "electronic receiver" that responds to the commands from the door key buttons needs to be replaced.
