I have a Lexus LS 400 that I bought for $150.00 and the car ran great when I bought it but it had a passenger side window broke out of it and I fixed it within a week of owning it and then after about a week after that the traction control light would come on and the car would run bad and the exhaust manafolds would turn glowing red and its an problem that comes and goes I was thinking that the ECM may have got damaged from the weather but I am not sure where it is located on the car... Please Help A Broke Guy Just Tring To Get To Work:banghead:

Glowing exhaust manifolds is an indication of rich burning and probably the cause of the poor running. See if you can retrieve any trouble codes from the ECM. But I suspect either a failed O2 sensor a plugged up cat, or a leak in the intake system.

The Traction Control light is also a common issue with those cars. From what I've read, it can be due to a bad speed sensor or an accumulator. But I am not very familiar with this car to be of specific help.

Good luck!
