There is no IACV on the car, idle is controlled by the electronic throttle system. Check the TPS and pedal position sensor, as they have been know to act up.

The VSC lights are due to the US VSC/TRAC/ABS computer being incompatible with the GTE ECU, but I doubt that has much to do with the E-shift. The flashing ECT PWR light means there is something...

Unless you feel like ponying up the $2k to get a new one, it's about your only option. Used ones should be fine to get, I doubt any legitimate seller is going to try to sell a failed brake booster.

I'd still say it's the sensor. Even if it doesn't always trigger a code, the sensor can still give a poor reading and trigger the ABS.

It's probably just the sensor that's bad. If the sensor is going bad it won't give accurate readings to the ABS computer, which can mislead it into applying ABS to that wheel, hence the buzzing.

Is that the only code you have? The service manual states that the code is produced by an abnormal condition in the ABS system (nothing more specific) and should be accompanied by some other fault.
