What guarantee I have that you will be able to give me an answer. Have you successfully dealt this particular problem for Lexus RX300are you still there?
Lexus Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, Mechanic replied 1 year ago

I have no idea yet , i don't have all of the information on the question yet .

I guarantee you i can give you the steps that need to be taken to diagnose a code.

I cant promise that your mechanic has the skills or tools to perform those steps. Or that you want to spend the money to diagnose or fix it .

Any check engine light will set a code , usually on these the vsc light comes on whenever there is a check engine light code.
