  2. FYI - The Lexus battery was replaced at no charge by Lexus of Tulsa as part of the original car warranty. 73's to Les for the reply. Thanks!
  3. Personally if you like the car, go to that independent and have them check the system and rebuild whatever cell is bad. Lot cheaper than a new car.
  4. Hi. I have a 2000 RX300 with 230k mi which I bought six months ago as a second car. Other than replacing rotors/brake pads and calipers it runs like a top and I like it a lot. I drove a 2010 350 today and was so bored I almost fell asleep. I like the 300 much more. I am looking at buying a lightweight pop up (prob mid 2000 lbs) and am wondering what others would think of towing with this. I live in a pancake flat part of Florida. My other car is a lease and I do not want to install a hitch. I don’t think I have the tow package. I have read the forums. I am rated to 3500 lbs but would need to get the hitch etc installed. As of now this vehicle has no issues. Am I crazy to consider using it for medium distance (1-2 hour) tow trips? When my lease is up we may buy a new vehicle with a full blown tow package but we don’t want to wait to get a camper. Thanks for your time.

  6. Last week the bluetooth for my phone in my 2005 quit. NOT ONLY THAT- the icon (telephone) disappeared from the Display. I was having my 125k mile service done at the time- the dealer did not work on the navigation or was anywhere inside the dash. In this model year Lexus integrated the phone bluetooth with the navigation system. The strange thing is that the icon disappeared... Has anyone heard/experienced this? Thanks! Chuck

  8. Hello, Could you recommend a mechanic for pre-purchase car inspection in Commack, NY area? I live in PA and am considering the purchase of a used 2010 Lexus ES 350 from a private seller in Commack, NY. Thanks!
  9. David, Thanks for sharing. Your experience is not encouraging to say the least. So far, no recurrence of the issue in my car <knock on wood> but it's now right at that 18 month later mark that you describe since my original issue. Hoping this does not turn into a full blown 'campaign notice' for the 200t, but if it keeps happening at around 12-15K mile intervals it just might. And if Lexus' fix is to simply replace the part, this doesn't appear to be the long term solution. They may need a redesign of the defective part. I'll post here if my car starts exhibiting the same issue again.

    Bad cluster, ECU or something else?

    Update: Nothing changed, bought a used ECU and cluster to changed both things. if same issue occurs I bet it must be bad wiring somewhere.
  11. I cannot change my temperature on the driver's side from 65 degrees with the ac or heat on. I have tried with and without dual control on just to make sure, and it will not budge. Do I need to buy the entire climate control panel or could it be something else. The passenger side works fine.

    '92 LS400, Maybe it's haunted ?

    I suggest that you put some dye in there to find the leak. AC issues can get very expensive don't keep guessing on this one.

  14. disengage the line parting assistance (it is at the stirring wheel on right hand side)
  15. After first 5000 mi on the odometer, by Lexus schedule, bolts and nuts of the drive-Shaft and chassis has to be re-Torqued. I want to do it myself. Anyone here has some pic, drawing or sketch of which bolts and nuts (location of them) exactly are to be re-Torqued? Thanks

    Plunge Taken

    Follow Up: I have maybe another 5,000 miles on the tire before they get to the wear bars. In full agreement on the Michelins. I've resolved all my issues except the RF parking sensor (minor scrape on corner), and the rear shade driver actuating arm is disconnected (I turned this off).

    Front Speaker Problem

    bacosta007, Two possible problems come to mind. The head unit amplifier for those speaker channels has quit working, or ... the connector on the back of the head unit has come loose and is not making contact. If you are a DIYer with car tear down and audio experience, pull the head unit and disconnect the wiring harnesses to it (disconnect the battery first, after copying down the frequencies of all your radio presets). It might be just that simple to correct. If that doesn't correct the issue, check with a Lexus dealership to see if they have an exchange program for the head unit. Years ago (1986 I believe) I had a radio issue with my wife's Toyota Cressida. Toyota had and exchange program where you gave them the old radio to refurbish and they gave you a refurbished unit to replace it with for like $350 or so (long time ago and the details are fuzzy). Maybe Lexus has something similar? Worth checking. Good Luck!
  19. Does anyone know which fuses are for the sound in the 2014 IS350 sport?
  20. I park my car RX 330 of 2004 model with A.C. working in a good condition over the weekend . When start my car on Monday. My A.C. start blowing hot . The TEMP is at final lower level. Yet it still blow hot. Please advice .
  21. Is it safe to add a hitch bike rack to a 2015 Lexus IS 250 F Sport? Thanks in advance!
  22. The most likely culprit is the Air Mix Servo. The above link provides some discussion but there is lots of discussion available on this subject. It's a common failure point for this generation of RX300 vehicles.
  23. The dimple in the nut - just pry at it with a screwdriver or an awl. Then put wheel back on with a couple of lug nuts and lower it so tire is on the ground and loosen the nut. I used a piece of wood between the shaft and hammer. You want to push the shaft inward, Puller won't work. Jack it up and take tire off, disc off, and remove the bolts holding the hub on. Tap the flange and it should come off.

  25. hi all.. hope someone has some idea... I am hearing a strange sound from the left front side of my 2013IS... best way I can describe it is if someone put a playing card in the spoke of a bicycle. I took the wheel off today.. wheel and tire look fine, no lumps or imperfections. The brakes have about 5k miles on them and look fine. The rotor spins fine and no imperfections. Any ideas would be appreciated thanks.

    A/C Light Flashing

    You may want to think about taking it back to him if you're comfortable with his ability to troubleshoot the system. This is going to require a level of expertise above shade tree. Good luck and let us know what the problem was.
  27. In the UK we have Michelin Cross Climate, brilliant in the winter weather and fabulous in the summer months too. Quiet and provide a remarkably comfortable ride. Everyome who has tried them would never go back. If you have them in the US please consider them. Quite remarkable tyres. Have them on my 2010 RX450h Ed in Glasgow
  28. So there is no chance to get it for RX400h? I am sorry for be a digger of the centruy but looking for that since in Poland we have quite big problems with good technicians - even in official Lexus Service. That is strange that for RX gen1 links are available and for Gen2 not.
  29. Hi! I'm looking for new android car stereo and want to install Seicane car stereo in my 2009 lexus rx330. How to install it? Is it difficult to install this by myself or to ask the professional to help?
