  2. Read many product description pages about mats I intimated that I was interested in, and the only thing I've been convinced of by the offerings that I found was that I really wouldn't be satisfied by anything that wasn't beige in color (or resembling that hue), and that settling for slabs produced in china would be the only available for a reasonable price. There were also multiple turn-off factors apparent to each of the multiple offering all manufactured by a company called BDK, and marketed by several different brand markers, Then I came across the Weather Tech brand's All Weather floor mat offering. The mats were suggested by a phone rep., and are a semi-specific fitment. Molded in the United States with a proprietary mixture of rubbery material that touts a 'low stink' factor. Although I didn't care for the individual 2nd row mats, I was able to order -just- the driver/passenger foot well items separately, and that option turned into a $60 price tag when purchased through a -very- local (about 3 miles away) dealer in their recognized network that wasn't going to ding me with the exorbitant shipping fee schedule. The company's -matching color- trim-to-fit cargo mat product has a pronounced liquid-trapping surround rib, for a $50 price tag. These American production products have a higher-than-average combined shipping weight which indicates a thickness factor comparable to the most substantial chinese produced mats I found available. My -only- downside is that the company makes a 2nd row one-piece mat, but won't sell it separate from a complete set of a universal trim-to-fit 1st & 2nd row placement mat set. The Weather Tech signature laser-cut to specific fitment for the driver/passenger -ISN'T- available for an RX300, -but- that type of product -IS- produced for the 2nd row -AND- the cargo area mats, but has a price tag exceeding my tastes, (about $90 & $140 (+ shipping) respectively. Beyond my budget, and the cargo mat proved to be very constrictive for my pooch purposes.

  4. Suggestions on headlight issue My passenger most days will not turn on. Once in a while it will turn on when I turn the car on, most days it’s off. But sometimes if I’m lucky I can turn the headlights off for bout 20 seconds then turn them back on and they will both be on. I’ve changed the bulb twice and the ballast once I haven’t taken the headlight completely out but nothing looks wrong with it from outside or in the engine bay. no cracks or water in it Any help would be great thanks
  5. hello all. https://www.ourismanlexusofrockville.com/new-lexus/nx-rockville-md.htm?search=RC050440 I am thinking of buying this one and got one OTD price back from the salesmanMSRP + DPH: $58,255 DISCOUNT -5000 Tag/Title/Reg: +352 Tax 4.15%: 2230 Doc fee: $500 OTD: 56,300 Down: $10k 2.49% for 48 months. Is this the best deal? Should it be lower? I am new, thanks.
  6. I recently bought a 2013 Lexus GX460 it is in great condition with only 41,000 miles on it. The only issue I am having with it is that it does not sync well with my and my wife's iphones through the blue tooth. I have a 2014 Tundra DC SR5 and the audio system software is some much better. Is their way to upgrade the software of the 2013 Lexus touch screen and audio system to a newer version? I was wondering if anyone had ever done something like this without changing out the screen and audio unit? I appreciate any help you could give. Thank you
  7. The more gadgets that are in the cars, the more can possibly go wrong. Went through Sahara in a VW Beetle (very long time ago) and whatever went a bit out of order could be fixed with a screwdriver and a piece of wire. In order to determine speed of car there are little sensors on each wheel plus probably a lot of other little things that are needed in order to have the computers accepting the data they receive. A neighbour has a very beautiful 2016 model of the IS250 and is happy with it. The CT we have is also OK. Still use Lexus for service in order to have hybrid battery warranted and they also give me a document that car is good for next year every time, so though service can be made cheaper other places, they have us as customers as long as battery is warranted or we no longer have the car. If the higher price for the service includes fixing little things, I find it is something I can live with.
  8. It's probably not the battery. Likely the power steering switch going bad. It reads the speed you are driving and adjusts the amount of effort required to steer. Going slower requires more pressure in the system to provide easier steering. Going faster requires less pressure.
  9. Go by an auto parts store and ask them to check the code. Buy a soda or an air freshener as a thank you.
  10. Thanks. I never had any of these problems before until my car was worked on by a so-called "Lexus specialist."
  11. Since your RX is new, you may want to have the dealership's service person tell you whether that sound can be "coded out" by them or whether you can do it, yourself.
  12. How can I turn off this high pitch tone, not the chimes, when i press the start button. On the youtube videos I never hear that tone when they press the start button, you just hear the chimes. Anybody else have this issue? The tone really hurts my ears.
  13. Last week
  14. Bulbs are halogen. I confirm they failed simultaneously. There is 12v to the fuse.
  15. Are the bulbs LED, Xenon or Halogen? No matter if all kind of bulbs have a limited life, it is very strange that both stopped same time. Could be source to the fuse. Have you tried to see if there is 12V on the fuse? First question is my own curiosity to find out how long time the LED bulbs in the CT probably will last as LED is either difficult to replace or very expensive.
  16. On my 2008 GS450h, owned for six years - BOTH High-Beam Headlights just stopped working simultaneously and without any warning. I noticed it when driving and I tried to use them. The bright blue dashboard light indicator for the main beam comes on, and there is no warning message on the dash. But those headlights aren't working (all the others are). Easy, you say - their shared fuse must have blown. Per the manual, both paper and online versions, one 20A fuse in the engine compartment fuse box handles both L & R main beam lights. So, I went to replace it: To my shock, the corresponding fuse (20A) was perfect, and tightly seated. Continuity-checked with a multimeter. In case the wiring didn't correspond to reality, I checked all the fuses around - all were also OK. So I whipped out my OBDII scan tool app on my mobile (BlueDriver gizmo plugged into the vehicle's OBDII port), but no error code of any kind shows up. The only odd thing I can think of is, in the last year, and only a couple of times - the car is driven thrice a day on average - the left dipped beam light did not come on, but came on when I gave the outside of the housing a thump. Please, what do I try next? I've heard there is a relay in the circuit, perhaps shared between the L and the R high-beam lights. Could this be the culprit - and where is it located?
  17. Hi. I noticed that my 1992 Lexus LS400 instrument cluster knob is not working. Only stays on the brightest setting. Won't dim the cluster when knob is turned to the left. I also noticed that the odometer display doesn't light up, stereo/radio display nor the center console panel light up at night when I turn on my headlights. ONLY the climate control display light up at night. Has anyone else had this issue and know what it is could be? An answer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  18. "...to the revision ('01) models " I've since, found this revision on a '00 model I found in a boneyard.
  19. Does it sound more like it is coming from the passenger side? If so it may not be behind the dash. Look underneath your car on the passenger side about where the gap between the front and rear door is about a foot or two in where the exhaust pipe runs. There is a flimsy heat shield attached to plastic with rivets. The rivets can get ripped out of the plastic and that heat shield will rattle around. That can sound like it is coming from the glove box area behind the dash
  20. back up camera not working. want to check the fuse for it but not sure where its located under hood or drivers compartment. so many fuses would be nice to know which ones at fault
  21. On my 2017 the struts were making a strained noise when opening. I cleaned the struts and no problem since. Did you check the switch in the glove box to make sure it is set to open?If the switch is set to off the hatch won't open.
  22. All the tire stores are telling me no one makes a 21” snow 5ire for the 2023 model. In addition I can’t put other smaller tires on it cuz Lexus changed something so they don’t work. What the hell!!!! This may be my last Lexus HELP! Suggestions?
  23. We have the identical problem with a 2023 RX350! Problem started mid-Sept of 2023, worked as it should prior to that date. Looking for a solution.
  24. You should Google Gary Summers and AuralVision a new approach to the in-car audio experience. It's not an aftermarket install, it's a play to get the manufacturers to build it from the ground up with a new vehicle. I've heard it in his prototype vehicle (Mercedes C230 Sport) and it beats anything that I've heard in terms of "premium systems" from manufacturers. He's a four-time Academy Award winner for best sound and car audio is his passion/hobby. You can find him on imdb.com as well.
  25. I'm considering this for a 2005 RX330. Connects to OBD port. When removed car resorts back to factory settings. rocketchipusa.com
