Default Warning Lights on: Check VSC, ABS, Brakes

For a couple weeks, my Check VSC, the Alert/Warning light (Red Triangle with Exclamation Point), ABS, and Brakes warning lights all would come on when starting my car up intermittently. If I turned my car immediately off and restarted, no lights would come on. Now these lights come on every time at start up.

I had the trouble codes scanned for my 06 IS250 AWD and it spit back two code: C1249 and C1223. C1249 is an open circuit in the stop light switch and C1223 is a ABS control fault error. Any ideas what could be triggering this? I was thinking possibly a loose ABS sensor wire or possibly a bad sensor??? Anyone else encounter these codes and find a fix? Thanks!

I came across these posts in the RX forums (http://www.clublexus.com/forums/rx-s...ts-are-on.html and http://www.clublexus.com/forums/rx-s...e-driving.html) ....seems to be the same trouble codes -- possible fix is a simple Stop Light Switch...

"dealer noted on receipt that found fault code c1223 and c1249, replaced brake light switch, and that cost $231.96 was charged to the wtty. The service advisor said that its the brake switch behind the pedal, and it has two circuits. One circuit is responsible for brake lights, and another circuit is responsible for ABS (?). So, the ABS circuit went out."

Hopefully that's the case and it's a $50 Stop Light Switch. I'll give this a shot before replaceing the ABS actuator. Keep you posted. Let me know if you have any other ideas on a possible fix. Thanks!

Default FIXED: Check VSC, ABS, Brakes Lights

FIXED! Had my buddy install a new stop light switch and reset the computer and no lights have come back on. I've started multiple times and have drove about 50 miles now and the lights have no returned! So if you get a c1249 and c1223 error, this is probably the solution. The only rip off is that I had to get the part from Lexus because I didn't want to wait to have it shipped from partsgeek.com (http://tinyurl.com/34len8a) and the $40 part became $83 through Lexus. I'm sure they probably would have charged $50 to diagnosis the issue and another $150 for labor...I'm pretty sure I came out way ahead in this situation. Hope this helps some you out there!
