Whie driving, the malfunction indicator and VSC are on now and they are not going away when I turn off car and restart it like before. I scheduled an appointment with the dealer Monday. Wanted to know if it was safe to drive?

After the repair, the lights were gone from the gauge cluster, and I haven't had a problem since then.

In my '01 owner's manual, only certain components from the emissions control system receive an 8 yr/80K mile warranty. Unfortunately the 8/80 components do not include the charcoal canister. That is backed by the Lexus Basic Warranty (4 yr/50K mile).
Regarding the charcoal canister... isn't the emissions warranty supposed to cover that? Has anyone had any experience with this?

Well, looks like the same thing has happened again. The VSC, VSC off, and check engine lights are all on at the same time. Its been like that since Sunday morning. I went to the Toyota dealership where I purchased the vehicle from and they told me that cataylitic converters needs to be replaced and I would have to take it to a Lexus dealer and the guy also told me that it would be covered under the 8/80K original warranty. If that is the case, should I be driving the car on a regular basis until my next week appointment? Has anyone had this problem before?
I have a 2000 ES 300. I had the same problem and when I gave my car for the 70,000 mile servicing they fixed it. A few days later the light came on again. This time the Lexus dealer wanted 450$ for the same thing. I used some basic logic - when I switch the ignition on the engine light goes away and so does the TRAC light. The trac button works and I can toggle the light. The problem arises only when the car is running. Everyone including the lexus dealer said that they need to check the electrical system or something ... so I will get it done during the 75K check. But, if anyone has got it resolved for cheaper than 450$ let me know.
