Hello.
To resume, my lexus sc430 (2002 and 98000kms) had a default light "Engine signal". I have contact Lexus in Mallorca. They have work or test my car. They mention i need to change both lambda sensors but i could wait to my come back in France. When i take my car, two other indicators are lignting on "VCS" and "VCS OFF". They said to me these lights are linked to the previous one "Engine". I don't understand why the engine light does not appear non more and how VSC lights are linked to Lambda sensors?? Can i wait to my come back to France. I will drive around 1000 kms in the present conditions.
Best regards

Hello again. If the Lambda sensors are casing the issue, you can drive it, but your fuel mileage may be compromised. The reason for the VSC lights being on is easy to explain: Lexus chooses to cause these lights to illuminate whenever the Check Engine light is illuminated. This is done on purpose to led significance to the Check Engine light getting attention as soon as possible. If the repair service replaces the faulty sensors and clears out the fault codes form the computer, the VSC lights should go off.
