  2. Although he only became a father a few years back, the Brodie has always been a family man. It’s been evident through his support network over the years, to his inclusion of his little man Noah in his signature Jordan Why Not Zer0.3 sneaker’s campaign launch. His focus on family has even been celebrated through his signature sneakers, dating back to the Zer0.1 “Noah” and last year’s Zer0.2 “The Family” Now in 2020 we’re seeing a third edition — also dubbed “The Family,” and also arriving in the same Black, White and Metallic Gold palette. While last year’s edition arrived rather simplistic, the overly aggressive nature of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.3 The Family has allowed this year’s pair to inflict more impact through the use of metallic exposed stitching and varying texture changes in the overlays. Jordan Brand has also introduced translucent lockdown straps, grey rubber outsoles, and marbleized shanks, for a feeling of complete chaos — I’ve got a two-year-old at home, too Russ, and that’s the perfect word to describe family life right now Grab an official look at the Brodie’s third family-themed pair below, and find these dropping in select Jordan retailers like Finish Line and Nike.com on January 9th in full family sizes. As always, keep your eyes glued to our www.kyrie6preheat.com for further updates, including better looks and a list of retailers who’ll be stocking to drop. Style Code: CD3003-001 (Men), Style Code: CD5804-001 (GS), Style Code: CD5805-001 (Little Kids), Style Code: CD5806-001 (Toddler), Color: Black/White/Metallic Gold, Release Date: January 9th, 2020, Price: $85
  3. Hi does anyone know how to reset a system check light? Also my vsc light is on too.
  4. Hey All (sorry for the dissertation): I was already aware that my car and cars like mine have issues with the control arms and considering the car is 12, I expected it. Problem is, last week I was told by one Lexus repair shop (been using them for 15+ years) that only the front control arms were torn. I held off because of his costs. I had the car aligned that same day at a different shop and was told the alignment couldn’t be done properly because of the front control arms so I had them replaced. Speed up to today, I went to a new shop beloved in my city that is owned by a Lexus Service Writer and Master Mechanic (not sure how much weight that truly holds). Thing is, I was informed that there are 8 control arms and all but two were torn. For them this is a $4400 job, alignment not included. It would most likely be difficult for me to verify what the truth is because I don’t know what I’m looking for. To be honest I still don’t trust mechanics 100% so I’d really like to see this for myself. Especially with two different recommendations at two well known shops. Put simply, I’m genuinely confused. They made it a point to tell me my brand new alignment and tire rotation might have been useless because it would most likely “fail” quickly and the tire tread wear would be terrible until I fixed those arms. I don’t hear or feel anything while driving. I’ve driven Lexus’ all my life. The alignment is great and we’re doing our best to work with the tires we have while keeping a close eye on everything. She drives like a yacht and is a thing of beauty. If this was your car, what would you do? Thanks ahead of time! All the best!

  6. I just did my valve body harness because my VVTI was not working properly as well as the SLT solenoid because the connector was cracked and the SLN solenoid because of harder shifting. I must say the shifts are a lot smoother and my VVTI is working too. I bought both from lexuspartsnow.com for my 98.
  7. Thanks by the way for the info on the ecu big help i was making sure i was buying the correct and up to date ecu
  8. Thanks for your response and the link! I have been ripping my hair out trying to find any information about these cleaning and flushing services that start from $230 and get more expensive, particularly the rear differential fluid bleed and flush. I also don’t think just because fluid is brown means it needs to be “flushed and changed.” It’s too vague and most fluids turn brown, it’s a car. I also have an ‘07 GS and have never quite gotten the guilt trip and BS. I am really worried to do damage to my car it’s in pristine condition so the recommendations I received by the Lexus Mechanic that my family has gone to for over 10+ years seems to have over stepped. His greed is outweighing long term customers. I did attach a paper with the list of what is “recommended” because the fluids are “brown.” I’ve already replaced the control arms and completed the alignment. I’d appreciate any input at all. I’m Once again, thank you!
  9. I wonder if the traction battery or a related component is going bad. I assume the traction battery is used to start the internal combustion engine of the RX400h like it is on other hybrid vehicles made by Toyota. And how old is the regular 12V battery? Does it test OK? Even through it isn't used to start the internal combustion engine, it's critical in powering the vehicle's electric infrastructure ... gauges, audio system, accessories, etc. I doubt if the brake code has anything to do with the problem. Sometimes meaningful codes trigger others that aren't.
  10. I was just in the exact same dilemma and chose to go with the 2008 LS460 with 45k OG miles over a 2016 with over 120k. I don’t necessarily feel like all are equal when speaking of higher mileage. If all things are indeed equal, like the list of necessary repairs or maintenance due by miles (via Lexus maintenance schedule), and wear and tear (interior/exterior) then it comes down to personal preference. The 4 year difference doesn’t mean a whole lot (to me) when you’re talking a difference of 98k miles and choosing between good/pristine. My opinion truly means nothing because you’re putting the cash down to pay for the vehicle. Since you asked ☺️, if all things were equal I’d run with the ‘03 in pristine shape.
  11. I just purchased a 2002 SC430 and the navigation system is a 2001 Version 1 and i want to upgrade to the latest version availble for this vehicle. Can anyone point me the right direction to do this? Jack in Camp Verde, AZ
  12. I dunno if the Gen II RX's will work well with the Toyota Limited Slip Differential (LSD) due to the change in transfer case? I just don't know enough about that build. But, if you want to add capability, you could try a posi rear end. You'd be looking for a donor vehicle (RX, Highlander, Rav4) with an axle code -04A denoting the factory Torsen LSD option. If you find one in the same year as yours, you'd know it'll work with the transfer case and it would be a good upgrade 🙂
  13. Well I found one in Oregon with 158K on the ODO. Seller (B&D Auto Wrecking) confirmed that it was/is a locker. So after the previous three vendors failed to check well enough and either sent the wrong part, or just refunded my money after double checking, I pulled the trigger and got it. Yup, it's a Toyota OEM Limited Slip Differential carrier complete. Raining right now, so don't want to open it up, but will in a few days. Looks like the right rear stub axle seal was weeping, so before it goes into my RX, I'll have the shop install all new seals and double check the lash. I don't want a noisy one replacing a dead silent existing one... So I got a photo of the "Build Plate" off the drivers door jam (sticker) from the donor vehicle (Highlander) : So you see the axle data in the lower right hand corner? It says -04A for this axle. My existing one is a std open diff (-02A). It's the thing you are looking for when out shopping. -04A is the axle code to look for in the field when hunting for one of these. I have seen one door sticker with an -03A on it, but was not able to get any more info about what axle that might be ...

  15. 1998 es300 150,000 miles. Any advice on replacing the passenger side CV axle after a motor mount has been replaced. I went through all the typical problems with this had to cut the CV axle out that was in there and press the bearing out of the carrier, just about pulled my hair out. Now I am reinstalling and the CV axle does not want to slip back into the transmission differential. I have tried lightly tapping on the outer end of the CV axle with a block of wood And just don’t feel like this is the proper way to do it. I have measured the new CV axle. I do not have a micrometer but it all appears to be the same size. I’m wondering if I need to loosen the motor mount back up. Any suggestions?

  17. '01 RX300, the windshiled washer hose snakes up along the passenger-side hood hinge and from there disappears under some plastic covers. The hose has developed a tiny leak right where it goes under the cover, apparently from 19 years of abrasion every time the hood is opened. I'd love to get some tips on how to access the hose beyond the point where it disappears. The leak is right there, but I can't get to it to repair it.
  18. I just replaced the door lock actuators in both the front doors on my 2005. Upon testing, all seemed fine. Door would lock and unlock with the switch and with the fob. When I got out and locked the doors, the problem reared it’s head. When all the doors are closed, it won’t unlock. It’s like a security mode engages. Even the physical key won’t unlock the driver’s door, it just relocks immediately. I can open the trunk so the fob works there. Thoughts?

  25. This choice depends on where you drive the most and what style of riding If it's just a city, maybe it's a waste.
