I have a 1999 LX470, 140k miles. I noticed there is strange noise (sounds like servo motor or some kind of !Removed! sound). when I first turn the key to light up the dash also when I press brake several times. It also happens frequently during driving when I press brake pedal. Brake still functions. Here is a YouTube link. 1999 LX470 Noise Behind Dash
you might need to put on headphone to hear the noise clearly in the YouTube video. Just wondering what the problem is . Any thoughts and gauidance are appreciated.
Yesterday my NX T warning light came on that there was a problem with my SRS airbag and to contact my dealer. My dealer's service department opened a claim with Lexus. I was told that the computer might have to be replaced or the airbag. Waiting to hear. Has anyone else had this problem?
im new in the Forum and live in Europe. I drive my Lexus LS430 since 3.5 Years. As you can probably read im not a native English but i will try my best.
Ive got an Error on my Boardcomputer. It only say Check VSC. As far asi know this is an Error wich has an other root. I checked i with the Lexus guys and we found an Error on the OBD wich says that there is a valve damaged on the Air intake. As far as i understood him right, there is an valve wich swich on and off the last 2 Cylinders in a higher RPM Range.
Now i do not exactly understand the reason for this valve and i also do not know under wich Name i can search something like this. Do you have any suggesteon, where i can find some explanation about that valve, and Probably a spare Part?
Thanks for your Help
Just got back from the brake guy who didn't charge me because this is the first vehicle I had with ABS breaks. For over 15k miles driving at highway speeds I never had a problem. Now, at 96K miles every time I hit the breaks with a little force it shakes the heck out of me and my riders in the vehicle. Brakes, rotors and the system was checked so I don't believe it is what I see posted on the forums that I have a warped rotors after it has been looked at by the owner of the shop.
I am thinking about taking off the fuse for the ABS then taking to the highway to see if it makes a difference. Yes, I know this is an important feature of the vehicle and would like to replace it in the wintertime but at 85 degrees, I don't need to have this much shaking for an everyday drive. This in my opinion would help me to figure out if it is in fact the ABS as the break shop owner thinks.
The user manual shows two fuses one is a 20 I believe and the other #1 is a 50. Any idea which one to pull?????
Any help is appreciated. I would like to try to take out the fuse today when it cools down a bit and I get home from the office. Thanks ! ! ! Marc
2003 Lexus ES - the portion of the dashboard that covers the passenger airbag is separating at the top (see photo attached). We live in SF Bay Area and get temps in the 80-90's (a few days of low 100's) during the summer but not sure if the heat is enough to cause this kind of separation. I talked to the local Lexus dealer and asked them if there was any danger in the airbag either not deploying correctly or deploying pre-maturely due to the dashboard separation.
They said I need to call Toyota National and open up an issue with them directly (i.e. they don't want to say anything related to safety that might make the dealership liable) They said my VIN# is not on the airbag recall notification list. So has anyone else had this happen to their dashboard / airbag and if so what did you end up doing to fix it? The dealership said all they could do is replace the dashboard but the airbag was a separate component and they have no way to know if the airbag is impacted by the dashboard seam separating.
Thoughts or opinions welcome.
