Please help! 3 lights on (vsc, vsc off, and cel)
I am in need of some serious help. I recently purchased a 1998 gs 300. One day, I lost all power on the freeway, then I had these three lights on. I have taken it to lexus had it scanned in their computer. They informed me that i should replace the tps sensor, and the throttle motor. Both i have replaced, but to no avail have the lights dissappeared. I have disconnected the battery several times to reset the computer. I have no control over the throttle. The throttle is non existant, i have to floor it to get it to go anywhere.
I recently took it into a local shop (closer than lexus) that has equipment to read the ecu. They said i need to replace the ecu, because there was a spike that caused the computer to fry. Is this plausable? Are they just telling me that to get $1300.00 out of me? Any help is appreciated. Dunno where to go from here, have not had the car long enough to really enjoy it, or drive anywhere with the family. PLEASE HELP!
