I have a 2003 Lexus GX 470. It sporadically refuses to shift from P to R or D and VSC lights show on dash. Now audio completely out-no radio or CD. What is wrong? Thank you.

Your response of answering my questions with your own question and then telling me you have no answer is of no value to me and I do not agree to pay for what is a complete lack of advice.

i can give you a whole list of things that can cause your problem but until you get the codes from the check engine light no expert will be able to help you as we can not come there and read the codes for our selfs the codes on the check engine light will tell you what the problem is

the check engine light does not stay on, none of them stay on, because eventually it allows me to shift. So assume the light is not on.
