Hi Angie:
The check engine light is reserved only for Powertrain problems that could have an impact on the emissions systems.

Exactly what the OBD system looks for depends on the make, model and year. The original systems varied widely in their capabilities. Some did little more than check whether the various electronic sensors and actuators were hooked up and working.

I suggest scanned the PCM computer (Powertrain COntrol Module) to know exactly what fault code is stored there.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

My 1999 Lexus ES 300 does not go into overdrive every so often.


If check engine light goes off then there is a trouble code stored. You'll need to retrieve the code w/ a scan tool and follow the proper diagnosis.

Had new tires put on car yesterday and traction control and engine check light have come on today on 1999 lexus es300


Any time the check engine light comes on the traction control will be disabled and the light will also come on. Start with scanning the engine computer for trouble codes to see why the check engine light is on.

Check engine lights came on, es 300 lexus,1999, constantly blinking, run rough at slow speed


A constantly blinking check engine light means you have a misfiring engine that is bad enough to cause your catalytic converter to go bad! Take it to the shop... probably means ignition parts and the upper manifold has to come off... and that's no fun! Good luck.

My check engine trac off light came on


This happened to me as well, just a few weeks after buying our 1999 ES300. Took it into Lexus for regular maintenance and to check this out. Apparently, if you don't replace the gas cap correctly and tight enough this can cause the 'trac off' light to come one. It will go off a little while after the cap has been replaced correctly. This also happened with my 2006 Murano, 'check engine soon' message.
