I got (in Europe) US 2003 1st gen Rx300.
About a year ago i have managed to change stereo from us (no navi) to UK version (with navi) and all was fine (bit os soldering was needed as plugs on both radios are different.
However now my radio sometimes has no sound for few hours/days and after that plays fine for few hours/days.
When I loose audio, under sound control I am missing MID range control and although i can see Bass/Treble + Left/Right & Front/Back controls they don't work - no level visible.
From what I understand it is an amplifier issue. I already got a new -second hand - one, but from UK market.
Now, I can not find info what is the difference between:
86100-48050 - US version and 86100-48040 UK version
Also, (before I get to my amplifier) would any of you have pictures of sockets/plugs in US amplifier?
I could make sure my plugs will fit into UK amplifier before I unscrew everything.
I attached pictures of UK amplifier
Couple weeks ago, my Lexus hybrid system light came on. I took the car to a local Lexus dealer. They charged me $160 just to test the engine light and told me to replaced my hybrid battery for $6,700. I am so broke I declined the replacement. Last week, I opened the hybrid battery and tested all cells. Turns out all cells are fine. I reassembled the battery back in place and drove it for another week. Today while driving 70 mph on the highway the "warning hybrid light" comes on again including check VSC, check ECB. Does anyone here has the same problem like it do? I know the battery is fine. Could the battery converter causing this problem?
Any advise would be appreciated.
