VSC Light & engine lite came on for no apparent reason. Live in Raleigh, NC. Is this an immediate safety issue? Is this a common problem? Is this a warranty issue for 16,500 miles? Otherwise is this only correctable at the dealer?

Take it in. They will check the code and go from there. Evap or a/f sensor codes are the most common. Since you have 16.5 k on it. It will be covered under warranty.

'07 Rx350: I've had the same problem ... the first time I had my Lexus dealer tell me to tighten the gas cap ... I did and the problem was resolve, even though it takes a few tanks for the light(s) to go out. Since I don't like to 'overtighten' anything, it's happened a couple of times since and retightening the gas cap and 'enduring' a few tanks of gas ... and the LIGHTS GO OUT.

When the "Check Engine" light comes on, it often causes panic--"Ohmygod my engine is about to quit--or something worse". It's not that the Engine is going to quit, it's some malfuntion in the emission control system. If the problem happens only once (say a spark-plug missfires), then after about 3-cycles of starting and driving the car, the light will go out automatically, as it did when the gas-cap was tightened correctly.

So before you panic, just drive the car for a little while and see if the light goes out--if not then get it diagnosed. Nothing critical will happen in the meantime.

I had a similar issue with my 2007 RX350 with 59,900 miles on it. THe Check Engine light and the VSC light. The Lexus dealer said it had code P2195 and I needed to replace an A/F sensor. Since I was above 50,000 miles, he said it was not covered by warranty and would cost around $500 to replace. He said that as a goodwill gesture they'd split the cost with me. When I picked it up I was charged $250 for labor, plus about $37 for Hazd./Shop charges. They also had me sign a 2nd invoice so they could recoup about $220 from Lexus.

As I look back at it, I'm wondering if the charges were appropriate.

I literally just had this happen to me and why I became a mbr of the site. My 2007 RX350 has a little under 30,000 miles on it and all of sudden the VSC and check engine light came on. I scheduled service and then did a search online.

I kid you not, I opened the gas cap and then put it back on until I heard a couple clicks,,,,the lights went right off. So check this first and thank for all the good info!

Yes, just tighten the gas cap and drive it, the light should go out after a short period of time.

Did you recently have an oil change or any other service work done?? On my Highlander, when the air box lid is removed to check the filter, a vacuum hose pulls out. Within a day, the lights come on. Plug the hose back in and the lights will go off within a few days.

I make sure that I check this hose every time it's serviced for anything..

It's worth a shot to check it out. Just peek around the air box with a flashlight and look for a loose hose.

I'll bet you find one..
