This happen to me yesterday morning too while taking the kids to school. I took it straight the lexus dealership for them to see what's the problem. After a day they finally called me saying that the abs actuator is bad and it need to be replace. Good thing I have third party extended warranty hopefully they'll cover the repair. Btw I have 09 swb with 91k

This may be an indication of a defective battery. You should have the battery tested by a battery dealer.

My 07 with 67k miles did this on and off for about 2 weeks right after purchasing. It was reset by the dealer twice and has since gone away. I suspect it was a battery issue and that now the battery has charged itself back to normal.

Mine warning lights came on like yours last fall and I had to replace my brake booster and my brake actuator. If your warranty on your car is expired, get ready to fork out some money.

I am confused how its related to the battery???
I had a dead battery more than 3 times but these lights never came on until now and the battery is working fine
Anyway I will take it to a battery dealer to check it out

FWIW....Ebay has the actuators for about 800 dollars. The ABS/VSC modules are about 200 dollars.

Just got the car back. My actuator was leaking a bit but nothing major so the extended warranty refuse to pay for the repair. I wasn't going to put out a few thousand myself so my service adviser and technician said it's okay to drive. If the lights comes back on again the warranty company will have no choice but to do the repair it then.

I am certain that when the dealer replace the actuator , they replace it with the LS600 actuator. I don't know what the difference between the two but the LS600 doesn't have that problem, that's what they told me when I got mine replaced.

+1, its been posted before that the dealer uses the ls600 actuator as a replacement. The ls460 part# is now the same as the ls600 part
