Take it back to the lpg installers, they have probably done something with the wireing. They have caused the fault so should sort it out.

Last time I had this warning it cost £3K. Check VSC. I needed a new ECU and 2 O2 sensors. Your car maybe different though. You have to get the codes read and hope all is ok!!

What type of lpg system have you, does it have its own ecu that piggybacks off the car ecu ( if so thats the place to start)

as suggested get it diagnosed.

Not quite the cash saving venture you had hoped for then?

Only fit LPG if you are keeping the car for 3 years or more or it costs you more than the fuel would have done, especially when the LPG fitters haven't a clue about the cars electrics, they just know how to fit the systems they sell and then dont want to investigate any problems that arise after.....not a wise choice

I have just had the same problem with my late husband's car, LS430 2001 - the red warning light came on together with the Error VSC display. Would be grateful for any advice and just hoping that it will not be a costly job.

Sorry to hear you have had troubles with your new LPG system.

There is only one solution and that is to take it back to where the LPG was fitted.

The big problem now with letting other people fiddle arounded with it is that whatever the problem is it wasnt there before and they then start to mess around with things that they would normally head for on a petrol engine and pushing and burying the real problem even deeper

Take it back to them and be firm but friendly.

Good luck Mike

I too had this on my '98 MKIV. However, in my case, it was soon followed by lumpy tickover, lack of power and then a full breakdown.

Turned out to be my alternator not charging.

Try putting a multimeter on your battery whilst the engine is running and reading the voltage. You should be looking at between 13.8 and 14.7v.

Thanks

Mike

The other thing you might like to keep in mind is that if you let someone else tinker with it the people that installed the LPG will say well you have breached the warranty by allowing someone else to try and sort it and refuse to do anything about it.

Regards Mike.

    • 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.
