I saw that you requested a second opinion from me. Do you have any more information about the VSC light or ABS light? Any recent service work? Do you have the malfunction code numbers from the VSC computer or ABS computer? Is the check engine light also on?

I just purchased the car. the lights were on except the check engine light. The check engine light is now on reading code 441.
Lexus Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago
Did you ever have the codes retrieved from the ABS or vehicle skid control computer? Do you know how to do that?

You will need to remove the jumper pin in this diagnostic link connector it is located under the hood towards the driver side. Inside the lid of the Box it'll give a map of the pin locations or see the illustration. You need to place a jumper wire between the two pins as indicated remove the jumper pin as seen in the illustration then turn the key to the on position and monitor the flash pattern of the ABS light. For example a code 21 will Flash 2 times a slight pause than one flash if there are additional codes they will follow in a two digit format. Post these code numbers back here when you get a chance. I have to step out for a couple of more hours then I'll be back on later this evening I can give you more information at that point.
