LEXUS GX 470 ALTERNATOR PROBLEM

2008 Lexus GX 470 • 59,000 miles

Started car and drove a short distance before noticing the following dash lights illuminated: VSC Trac off, Anti Skid, Check engine, amd ATP. After taking the car home and putting it in PARK I went to shift into DRIVE so that I could get it to the repair shop. The car would not move, so I tried putting it in REVERSE only to find the same thing. So then placing it back into PARK the transmission made a loud grinding noise.

After turning it off, I noticed the dash and interior lights dim and radio stopped. Battery had also gone dead. This morning car started, but wouldn't move.

Check the alternator. Ensure all ground circuits are good.
Have the trouble codes retrieved and let us know what they are.
