Question ABS, VSC,VSC Off, Brake lights on 1999 GS300

I'm new to this forum, and this is my first post----I have a 1999 Lexus GS300 with the following lights on (brake light, VSC, VSC OFF, and ABS), and the brake pedal is really stiff. I have a small hand help scanner(CARMD) that produced the following codes C0278, C1246, C1251, C1252, C1253, C1254, C1256, and C1223. Do you have any idea where my problem or problems may be? Last week I had a alignment, and tires rotated at different locations. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh, I also had a timing belt/water pump replacement about one month ago which is probably irrelevant.

In the same position...sort of.

Had a wheel alignment done today and now the VSC and VSC OFF lights are on. Did a search and found that disconnecting the + terminal for 30 mins might resolve it. i tried this and they're still on.

Not really wanting to take it into Lexus for fear of it costing heaps just to get looked at.

I told the guys who did the wheel alignment and they said something along the lines of "The lights are on because my wheels were so misaligned before the alignment" or something like that.

Any advice anyone?

Could be possible that one of your speed sensors are acting up.

Unhappy 1999 GS300 ABS, VSC,VSC Off,and Brake lights on

I took the car to the local Lexus dealership today, they told me it's my brake master cylinder assembly I love my 1999 GS300, but cannot afford to replace a $2600.00 part. Heeeelp, if anyone know where I can get an reasonable price or used one....Please post!
PS....After looking at some of the fantastic vehicles on this forum, at some point I would like to make some upgrades. The car is super clean,but 100% stock.

It's good that you searched, but look at how old this post is. You might want to keep searching just to verify a solution or get closer to one
