Hi All,

Hope you are all safe and well.

This is only my second post so thanks in advance for any replies.

Had an issue whihc I posted a few weeks ago and the same problem happened again on Monday. Have tried to get it booked into Lexus but dealers in Exeter and Plymouth are not open at present. The lady I sopke to said I could try lexus Assist, even though i don't have cover. To cut a long story short, the AA have been out this afternoon and read the codes whihc are P3190, Engine power too low and P3193 Tank empty.

The tank is not and has never been empty since I have had the car. the power was low and this has been an intermittant problem for some time.

Any one got any ideas where I can start to look to solve these - I need the car as I need to get to my mother to look after her when my brother can't.

Thanks.

Welcome Martin.

Please tell us what the issue is or provide a link to your other post.

Are you living in UK or abroad?

How long have you owned the car and did you buy it from a Dealer or privately.

Hi John,

Thanks for your quick response. My original post was on 9th April headed Strange problem. I am sorry, but I don't know how to link my original post to this one.

I am in the UK, I have had the car for four and a half years, bought from a small trader with 92k on the clock and now has 193k on the clock.

Can you read my original post or tell me how to link it, that would be great, thanks.

Regards.

Hi All,

Newbie here. I have a 2005 RX 400h with 193,000 on the clock. I have had a strange issue. When pulling up to a junction, braking gently, the engine "stalled" and the braking jerked, like some one had run into the back of me. The check VSC system light came on along with check hybrid system. The car then ran on Battery only for a short distance so I pulled over and switched off. I restarted it and then only the "check hybrid" light came. The car then ran as normal, using engine and Battery but with the engine management light on as well. After arriving home, I switched off and the started it again 5 minutes later and no lights were on and it ran normally. This happened last week and then exactly the same the other day. My "local" lexus dealer is closed at present and are booked up for all of May so can't get it looked at which is a bit of a worry as my mother is not in good health and I may need to help out and she is 120 miles away.

Has anyone had anything similar or any thoughts on what it might be.

Thanks in advance.

 

The above is your original text, so lets hope that other members can chip in Martin.
