RED (!) and TRC OFF dash lights flashing!!

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

Thanks for reading and hopefully helping and I apologise if the question is answered already elsewhere. 

 

Ive got a Lexus IS200 Sport UK model. 

Ive had the RED (!) handbrake? and TRC OFF lights on the dash intermittently for a few weeks now. Sometimes together, sometimes on their own, sometimes for seconds maybe for a minute or two. 

 

Ive had it plugged in and it came up with a code......

 

C1223 ABS system control failure.

 

can someone plz give me a hint as to what it is??

 

im thinking either pump or the ECU and not a sensor?!

 

your help and advice is appreciated.

So, you have braking system malfunction for weeks and ask yourself only now what to do? :wacko:

Does the code reader not specify which component is causing the error? 

I'm not familiar with Lexus diagnostics but surely it should be more detailed? Or was this a generic OBD reader?

I work away Mon-Fri without my car so yes I have had weeks with a brake problem but not an issue as its not been used. 

 

Its an expensive generic reader and that's the only diagnosis. Even online doesn't give much more detail with that code. But it all seems to point to the pump or Ecu both of which I'm looking at 150 ish for the ecu and around 1500 for the pump from Lexus/Toyota.

Personally I would want A diagnosis done using the Lexus system. That's a lot of money to be guessing..
