A computer failure would also obviously cause it. And other advice interestingly enough was to just ignore it since we live in Florida and it most likely deals with handling the vehicle on slick icy roads! Although I kept pressing on the brakes nothing happened and I ended up crashing into the car ahead of me and causing a chain reaction involving four 4 other cars, then swerving onto the side of the road and finally coming to a stop by hitting the traffic light pole. Does anyone else have this problem and what could it be? Respnd and I will get back to you! Should I be able to continue driving--say for example, I am on the freeway and this happens and I cannot just pull over and stop and restart--then what? All people talked with played it down. The more components a car has, the more potential there is for things to go wrong. After repeatedly turning on and off the ignition I was able to unlock the pedal about 5 mins and I then called up the dealership. Nothing else, just stays on when I turn on the car. Papaobewon, what further thoughts do you have on this seemingly popular issue? In case Allstate is reading this! In this case, stop your vehicle and contact your local Lexus dealer.
The number 4 spark plug coil needed to be replaced. This occurs after driving for some time or even a long time--again, no pattern or rhyme or reason for it to occur. I dismounted the dashboard, peeled it completely and covered with a high quality vinyl and fixed the problem. Has always been garaged and well maintained. Sometimes after an oil change, the.
If there is no voltage on the driver circuit, then turn the ignition off. There are many things I would do to try and isolate the problem, but too difficult to communicate to anyone but a mechanic. Be sure you use a ground strap like you use for computer work, goes on your wrist to computer case should you choose to do that. Replacing either component is fairly straightforward and only requires a few tools. If you have a wavy line underneath the oil can, it means the engine oil is low. After replacing this sensor vehicle had no issue apart from steering wheel alignment off which was also fixed. Our local shop said fuel sensor at the tail pipe.
Engine Oil This is the oil pressure engine light. I am afraid that this is something major and dangerous. They assumed this to be related to the recall my vehicle had for the brake lights tail lights and fixed the vehicle for the recall issue. The lights come on around 15,000 , 30,000 , and 90,000 miles. I have been having the same problem for 3 years now. Oh, btw, they did reset the computer for me which again the lights lit up in about a week or so.
Try not to drive with it on for a long distance. I will ask my mechanic to perform what Papobewon suggested. I had driven my car to the local deli with no problems. My garage only get sensor fault with their diagnostic equipment so it could be any, but a trip to the main dealer could sort it out but at what cost. The Lexus is equipped with an advanced computer that can read the issues the car is going through and warn the driver lights on the dashboard.
The connector is located on the left, lower side of the dashboard. If they go of when you turn it off and restart it, it sounds like it has to be the ignition switch as if it is not registering a started condition , or the computer, since the computer goes through a self check of all systems each time you turn the key on. Nothing else, just stays on when I turn on the car. While surfing the net I found several suggestions and some were tried and then there was a mention of fuel filler caps somewhere. I took it to my mechanic and said as long the lights do not bother me I can drive it. A high quality scanner will tell you what those codes mean. Papaobewon answered 4 years ago Since it is not a warranty item I would not go to Dealer to repair! They will assist you if they are not busy so be understanding! Oct 27, 2016 - Uploaded by Hoang Tran S? Since it is so random, I don't know how you could check it without taking the entire switch out and then I don't think it can be taken apart to check the contacts because it is likely crimped together.
Then start the engine and check for a driver signal to the 4 coil. If it worked reset radio or clock or whatever else shut off when battery was disconnected! I asked if this would definetly resolve the issue and they would not confirm this either way and just re-iterated that thats what the computer tells us. Above were some of the more important warning lights that you need to know. They also thoroughly washed my car, although it looked like rain. Here's a quick guide to.
The dealer did the previous change and ran the filter down to the rim. I'm trying to sell the car and just thought there might be an easy fix. I had to pay to replace it. Lexus did a diagnostic on it and came up with 'Code P0174: bank 2 oxygen sensor at fault'. In our case we took it to our Lexus dealer and they checked, found the sensor was faulty, and replaced it -- all for no charge, which was a nice introduction to Lexus service standards. Start by measuring the battery voltage when the no-charge is occurring.
Reading the threads on here about accessing the rear plugs, it looks like a dealer job as I certainly don't have a full day to spare. Can that be the cause of my alternator failing? If there is a Hertz signal, then replace the 4 ignition coil. I immediately changed my plans and went to the dealership. First, measure the voltage on the large white wire at the generator. It is well cared for.
