the VSC light came on 4 days ago. And the same time the car start shaking when I first start it. It's in the shop now and they told me that I have 2 coils that need to be replaced and 8 spark plugs.I read that the VSC has to do with the traction and skid control.

How long have you had this problem? today
My Lexus LS430 has 194k it is over heating on inclines. I replaced the thermostat and it is still doing it. Could it be that the water pump needs to be replaced ?
What seems to make the problem better or worse? going up an incline
How long have you had this problem? for awhile
Have replaced the transmission twice within 6 months - ouch - same problem. VSC light, Headlight leveling, engine rev's with gas but not in gear. Last week certified repair shop dropped transmission and re-set it saying that they needed to tighten harness and sensors ---ugh it's all happened again so that's not the solution! Help please.
My electric door lock will not lock. I even have to manually lock it first, then hold onto the door handle when closing the door to get the door to lock. The key will not lock the door from the outside (weird). Any ideas as to how much I will need to put aside per week for how many weeks before selling the car, because except for this problem everything else is fine. My insurance company said, however, because of the age of the car, that if I was in a wreck, it would cost me a bundle to get the car fixed because parts are just not made for 11 y.o. cars. Its a beaut though at 31K miles.
Manually I can not unlock the door. I can't get in my car at all
