  1. MAJOR Lexus electric/fuel cell announcement

    Hi Trevor, It feels like this market will remain fluid for sometime yet. In the US I think that one of the factors for this market are the need to meet ongoing mandates for pollution emission, fuel economy and safety regulations. I'm pleased that the major makes are taking the lead for these technical challenges. Here in Des Moines a few of the downtown parking ramps have installed just a few electrical charging stations. I wonder who will pick up the tab to install many more connections. Some time ago I read an article that said Hawaii had begun testing hydrogen fuel cell cars and the experience of recharging our changing empty cells at a retrofited Paul

  3. Just saying hi

    Hi Jeff and welcome. We look forward to hearing more from you. Paul
  4. Barometric Pressure

    Hi Neil, This is a new one! I would suggest going to the Toyota tech site, TIS.com. The site has very in depth tech information for Toyota, Lexus, and Scion. There are schematics, text, and pictures for every component. The charge is $15.00 for 48 hours of use. Let us know if you solve your question. Paul
  5. Hi Jags and welcome. Gene has some excellent advice. Your posts do not show your location so I will assume your asking about the USA. States have individual counties or Parishes and the County Treasurers office should show a record for each time the car was titled, licenses plate issued. I believe a service from the insurance industry or something like Car Fax may show any accidents or claims may have been shown per the vehicle ID or VIN number. It's easy to get excited when thinking of a new car. But, try to follow your needs and do the homework. Paul
  6. Lexus has announced they will not develop anymore hybrids. Instead, they will move directly to electric and fuel cell technology. This announcement follows with new Lexus models probably in the LS price bracket. I'm anxious to hear if there is any response from the German folks. I would imagine there will be a lot of questions from current hybrid owners. Read the article below. What do you think the future Lexus market will look like?

  7. Wow! I feel your pain! I have never heard of such strange cluster of symptoms. I wish I could offer more help. Paul
  8. New ES next year !!

    This site predicts Lexus will bring out a whole new ES sedan next year with a possible sport version to follow. This is a break from tradition for Lexus as over the years the ES has always been revised every 5 years. The photo included shows a much more aggressive appearance with lines and angles putting a look of power from bow to stern. Tell us your thoughts. Paul https://lexusenthusiast.com/2017/09/29/rendered-the-next-generation-lexus-es-sedan/
  9. Hi Skippy and welcome. Most of the fuses are located on the left driver side kick panel and more located under the hood. on top of the drivers side fender. There is a large 140a fuse on top of the alternator. However, I can't recall ever hearing of the alternator fuse tacking out all of the electric system. Try going to an Auto Zone store and have them read out the codes. They do this for free. Paul
  10. Hi Nathan. I apologize for not connecting with you sooner. I am always amazed at the depth of friendship and caring that can be built with someone you have never met nor never knew what they looked like. The LOC is a place where those who enjoy their hobby can find others who like swapping stories with like minded friends. Landar was a great part of the LOC and was a great source of Lexus info and technical help. Thank you for letting us share your journey. Paul
  11. Hi Deadbolt and welcome. When all else fails this spite should give you what you want. Toyota,Lexus,and Scion,are supported at this site that is posted for Toyota auto products. The cite cost is $15.00 for 48 hours. You can go on from there. Its worth the $15. Hear is the site info. "toyotalexusscion.org. " tls.com ) Paul
  12. Summer Holidays / Vacation

    Incredible shots Steve!!. Looks like a wonderful trip.
  13. Oil conventional or synthetic

    Hi Keith. Either is fine in the 2010. With my ES 2010 the dealer used a blend of regular and synthetic. In newer models, Lexus is specifying synthetic only. Paul
  14. Hi Hance I'll bet dollars to donuts its your amp. Unless you are getting your power from the head unit. Paul
  15. Hi Dom and welcome. I have not heard of that problem on any other 2017. Really weird. It sounds as if the dealer has tried to find a fix but since they came up short that still leaves you with the problem. When your wife drove the two other ES 2017 was the tech with her or did he drive those as well? If not, I would tell the dealer to check it out, and you would also want them to call Lexus tech support for more in put. Let us know how things turn out. Paul
