If your car has traction control -- it was optional for the SC300/400 in all model years -- there should be a switch to turn it off.
Lots of issues can cause the Trac warning light to come on -- doesn't mean that the component causing the problem is on the same circuit.
Sure, if there is a fuse labled Trac, try pulling it.

I'm sure there is trac control. I have the fuse, its not a dummy fuse.
Just because you have a fuse in the slot where the Trac fuse goes doesn't mean your car has TRAC. Traction control was not all that common on early Lexus cars and the early SC300 5-speed often came with especially minimal equipment. If your car has TRAC, it will have easily seen module in the engine compartment labeled Trac or Traction Control and your car will also have heated seats: http://www.lexus.com...1992SCspecs.pdf
You can see some of the Trac components on diagrams here: http://www.toyodiy.c....html?hl=47547G

My 95 SC300 Automatic seems to have the light on the dash board upon start up and even does that noise when you first turn the wheel after first starting the car. The noise I'm referring to is like a laser sound or a laser gun being shot off, then goes away quickly. Sounds like a motor firing on or something. I was under the impression that that noise was the TRAC system engaging and or self checking.
Am I completely off base with the noise I hear?
