Lexus Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Lexus Expert
good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist
what is the year and model???
the body shop made a huge mistake. the fact that the trans is in limp mode tells me either the fuses is blown for the tcm or they damaged the tcm module with the current surge. crossing the cables damages all the modules with feed backs. you are lucky that it even runs.
the code is for the VSC system not the trans. can you access the trans portion of the system and look for codes???
it does not sound too good at this point but beyond this, there may be future issues
are they going to help you out with this??? they should as they caused the proble.
the code will not clear until the failure is determined, repaired. then the code will clear.
DTC C1201/51 Engine Control System MalfunctionDESCRIPTION If a malfunction in the engine control system is detected, the operations of VSC and TRAC are prohibited by the fail safe function. When the signals from the engine are input normally, the fail safe is cancelled and the DTC is not stored.
ok, then there is a transmission failure somewhere. can you see live data with the transmission??
