P2002 Error Code "check Vsc"

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

As per everyone else who seems to own an IS220d, I have the common P2002 error with the "Check VSC" warning light etc.

Last Sunday I was able to get the vehicle to Lexus Hatfield, ready for a Monday diagnosis. So Friday (yesterday) comes about without hearing anything, I call them to see what's going on. I have the P2002 error code and the catalytic converter needs completely replacing. This sounds a lot like those other stories throughout this forum where from what i read, most people have managed to get this fixed by Lexus at no charge to themselves regardless of whether the car is still in warranty.

My request, so to those people who were out of warranty when this issued occurred and managed to get Lexus to cover the repair costs; please can you let me know how. After my lengthy discussions with Lexus Hatfield, I got the distinct impression they wouldn't assist to much in getting the go ahead from Lexus Head Office.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Alex. You may be confusing this with the headgasket issue that was mostly done free of charge by lexus after the normal warranty period was over. I dont think the CAT ( or DPF as in diesel model) is covered. When I had this problem with my car, I just drove it at very high revs on the motor way and it cleaned the DPF and removed the VSC warning. You have to stop the car and restart it several times and then for about 5 minutes the car lets you drive it with full power before the VSC light comes on.
