The same happened to me.. Is your engine light on too? It was found out using the OB reader / equipment thingy that it was the MAP sensor..

I've since had the HKS MAP sensor fitted and the light is sorted.

yes ad my malfunction indicator lamp is on constantly and my trc light is flashing.is it expensive to sort the map sensor?

Not too sure mate. As you've now got the V Pro fitted and your car will be back down TDI again soon. Have a word with Mark. It might pay to have the HKS MAP sensor fitted too. Definately for future projects :D

adie did this trc light happen before the bigger injecters or after ? and do you know the reason for it

Before mate. The engine light was because of no cat being in. It was thought by a couple of places that the TRC might have come on because of extra boost / horse power it was running.. When the diagnosis equipment was put on it came up MAP sensor. When I had the larger injectors fitted I also had the HKS MAP sensor fitted and this cured the problem.

Are you both running more horses / boost than before?

no im still on std 0.3 boost till next week.

Possibly a tweak in the mapping then mate. Have a word with Mark when you next see / speak to him and he'll be able to advise better.

But as I said the OBDII reader will read MAP sensor

my traction controll light is flashing constantly can some one tell me what this means you cant turn it off or on

thanks

Daz, is your engine/man/light on ? if not it might be bulb, to see if its the bulb, put your key in trun on (dont start up the car) your engine/man/light should be on, top right on the dash.

Its very odd to have just traction light on, without the other.

you are using a boost gauge in youre Pip?i aint got my gauges and meters plugged in yet,so i dont know the boost.i thought with the s/c it produces 0.3bar of boost at peak,so ive been taught something new.so with the boost upgrade it will be more than 0.5bar then at peak.

No Gord. Daz has the engine management light on constantly along with the TRC light flashing on and off intermittently

Ok mate, has he had anything done to the car recently ? or has it just come on ?

Sometimes both flash when coilpack is playing-up :blink:

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
