Hi and welcome to the LOC, I didn't know I'd become famous on the forum! lol

Before I can help I need to know which year your LS is as the diagnostics are different after October 1994.

I have a 1995 LS400 with 144,000 miles. My check engine light has been lit for the past 55,000 miles. After a lot of money at the dealer, the light was out for about 50 miles and then came back on. I had my local guy check the car out and he said he suspected an oxygen sensor. We changed three but the fourth would not come out, it was too rusted in.

At any rate, the car runs great, I've replaced the y-pipe (or is it an x-pipe), cat, tuned up, etc. But I live with the light.

Ok,

If you are confident to read the codes yourself and have a paper clip you don't need a code reader, method and codes are in the link below.

If you get the code(s) post up the results and we'll go from there.
