Customer Question
***** ***** from KY...

***** ***** from KY. I have a 2002 RX300 with 212k miles runs and drives good but has VSC and ABS lights on. No codes show up from my amateur decoder I bought. I saw videos how to calibrate sensor pins for removal of VSC code does this work? Is my AWD working with these lights on? Is tranny going bad with these errors? Just wondering if I should sell or keep driving as is? Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

How to remove VSC code? Trans. related?

Mechanic's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Lexus Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Yes
