No, didn't provide code
Expert:  Gunvir Singh replied 2 months ago.

No Problem. It is very common on these vehicles for the blown fuses when jumo started. Since the throttle body operation is controlled by the ECM, need to make sure all ECM fuses are good too. If all the fuses are good then there is a possibility of a faulty throttlr body.

Does this this work require a certified Lexus tech or can a regular skilled mech handle it?
Expert:  Gunvir Singh replied 2 months ago.

An independent repair shop should be able to perform the repair.
