Is the Check Engine Light illuminating on your Lexus dashboard? Learn how to fix the problem by reading and clearing the fault codes using an OBD-II Scanner.
What you will need
- Turn on the ignition, but do not start the engine. If your Lexus has START/STOP button, press it without pressing the brake pedal.
- Connect the OBDII scanner to your vehicle’s diagnostic port located under the dashboard driver’s side.
- Press enter to connect to the onboard diagnostic system. Select OBD-II from the main menu. Scroll down to Read Codes / Fault Codes.
- If all codes show as STORED, go back and Clear Fault Codes. If the check engine light persists after clearing the code, take note of the displayed codes and search for the meaning of the codes.
Reading and clearing check engine codes on a Lexus vehicle is easy. This procedure works on all 1996 Lexus vehicles. Fault codes should only be cleared after addressing all the fault codes stored in the Engine Control Unit.
