Problem with Lexus RX 330

10-10-2010, 10:03 AM
Bought a salvage 2004 Lexus RX 330. During the accident the back left wheel practically fell off. Also one of the side airbags blew off. The damage has been repaired, the back shock-absorber, all tire rods, CV joint with driveshaft, etc. have been replaced. The car is able to run but the VSC, the Check Engine and Airbag lights are on. The main problem is that the engine starts but the tachometre shows that it doesn't go more than 1900-2000 RPM. When I ground the gas pedal the car travels very slowly. Why is this happening & how can I fix this?
P.S. - I tried taking out the battery & recharging the car's computer but it didn't work.
Sorry if my english isn't very good, I'm not an english-speaking person.

Welcome to the forum!

You're going to need to find yourself a scan tool, preferably one that can read powertrain and ABS codes. Chances are good the source of the ABS code is also going to fix the VSC code. If not, you will also need a scan tool that can pull the VSC system codes as well, and for this type of tool you're either looking at big bucks or finding a shop that has such software on their scan tool.
