  3. Hello. I've picked up two (presumably used) keys from eBay both working at a low price from the same seller. The keys apparently were 2001, and look the same. My car is 2001 LS430, UCF30R-AEAGKW; Europe, Right hand drive, 3UZFE, 5 speed automatic, and apparently Ultraluxury edition (but without parking sensors). Is there a way to program these to start the car and function identical or similar to the only master key I have? Picture attached. Left to right; Purchased key 1, Purchased key 2, Functioning master key.

    Both absolutely superb cars and definitely worth holding onto the XK8 as going up in value at an alarming rate in the UK

    2008 Lexus es 350

    dionj34, You are still too vague. Get the hood open, have someone rev the car up several times while you stand in front of the car and determine where the sound appears to originate. Better yet, record a sound clip or video on your phone and post it here.

  19. Hopefully you're healing well from your fall. Yikes! In the case of my LS, I had electrical issues when I bought the car--First, no start (I first ran a jumper lead under dash to the ECU main power lead). I was able to start the car... But there was also no power to the HVAC blower, no charging light, radio, etc. In my case, I checked wiring all the way from the under-hood power distribution point, through the wiring and into the car, thinking I had rodent issues to deal with. Instead, it was a bad connection inside the car, at the fuse and breaker panel--the connector that screws into the panel apparently had enough corrosion on it to cause issues. I removed the connector, treated both ends with DeoxIt, worked it in, then re-installed the connector. It's worked ever since, four years on. Check it out when you can--can't hurt, might help. Paul
  20. Hi - I have an RX330 2006. The sunroof would not close. I can hear the motor when I use the slide button. But the sunroof does not move. I did hear a wired sound when I opened the sunroof and since then it is stuck. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot

    2008 Lexus es 350

    I'm sorry but the car has 93k and it's sounds like it's coming from the front of the car and it happens when I press the gas pedal also

    2008 Lexus es 350

    dionj34, Always give the mileage in any post. Low mileage eliminates many causes of issues, and higher mileage brings common problems that occur as the car ages. And that brings us to your description. Where is the rattle noise located? At the rear of the car (loose heat shield/muffler), near the transmission (heat shield/broken exhaust mount?) near the starter (loose starter), near the middle of the passenger side of the motor (timing tensioner), top of the motor (valve train). What does the rattle sound like? Maybe its best to record an audio or video of it and post it in your thread. You really haven't given us much of anything to go on.

    I have a Lexus Es 350 and when I first crank it up there's a rattle noise and also when I press the gas but it slowly goes away wondering what could be the problem

    2006 Trim levels

    Hey Lexus SC lovers! I'm trying out a 2006 Smoky Granite/Saddle combo with 71k this weekend. I've tried out a few and researched many, but this is the first one with the non-traditional color-coded wheels. The previous owner tells me he thinks its an upgrade offer. The logo lettering is not quite silver but rather a smoky silver and he thought the two were together in this upgrade Can anyone give more details? I haven't found much in my initial online searching.

  26. Can't recommend any one unit, but you will need another transponder key. The engine won't start without a recognized key near the antenna, which is next to the ignition switch. I would buy another key online, use Techstream to program it to the car, and then tape it under the dash near the switch WITHOUT getting it cut. That way a thief would not be able to steal the car after it is remotely started since the steering and shifter would still be locked.
  27. I recently back in April changed my Daughter's Radio Unit in her 2008 RX350. I purchased the unit from and bought their steering wheel conversion unit which was plug & play. It worked great! including the Microphone on the Unit for answering the cell phone hands-Free! The steering wheel Control Interface: Item #120ASWC1 was $41.00 but I felt was worth it! Easily installed and worked great!
  28. Hi Ladies & Gents, Rather New to this Site, but sifted through before purchasing my Daughter Her 2008 Rx350 with 100,000 miles well maintained Lexus! All Dealer ship invoices from 5,000 mile interval check-ups and oil changes with even a New Lexus battery installed at 90,000 miles. (who installs a Lexus battery in a 9 year old car from the Dealer)? Had to be costly? Anyways, looking to install a Remote Starter for her. Better to have it installed and bite the bullet on the extra $150.00 or get unit on E-bay for a lot less and install myself? I am a really good mechanic and probably could easily install it but there are some wiring with Japanese, Korean, Chinese vehicles that are better left to a person who has installed these units and can make sure there is NO trouble-shooting later? Hard to find a more direct plug & Play Remote with little wiring and then there are the Remotes? The RX350 does NOT have push button start. Have to use the key I need another programmed key? I only have one NOW! I do have the Techstream software but haven't programmed another key yet? Another post! Let me have your feed back or is there a Post on this site so I can go to it for HELP? I would like a more recent post for the Newer Remote starter and like to use my existing Key Fob?
