Customer Question
Lexus 2006 RX car...

Lexus 2006 RX car battery died. I jumped it and now the car will not accelerate. Check engine light is on, as well as light that says " VSC" and "Trac off"

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

The light stays on permanently now

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RX yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am troubleshooting now...wanted to see why the car will not accelerate at all, and why the check engine light is on after a dead battery?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No- this should cover it
