Hey how are you ,I will Try to Help you with This Issue

Click on link to view pdf file for DTC U0100 ( loss of PCM/ECM communication ) we have a can bus issue where the ecm losing connection

what is mileage on it now ? is there any other fault codes then U0100 ?

if we have a loss of communication from it want start for sure, when turn switch off OFF and back on it is resetting the Module , but we need to know which one

Do you have a capable scanner that can read Lexus Modules and Including HV ECU or you have just Basic code reader

How did you retrieve the U0100 using what scanner ?

If you do not mind me asking are you looking for the most possible causes and taking it to a repair shop or you are repairing it yourself and you need step by step instructions
Please Let Me Know
Thank You
