  2. Curious how many Lexus owners have had a brake actuator failure. We have a 2013 RX350; we bought a new RX450, and parked the 350 over the holidays planning to sell. When I started it, numerous warning lights came on: the "Check AWD System" light, the engine light, and the VSC and Traction Control System lights. Upon taking the vehicle to our dealer, were we told that the brake actuator assembly needed to be replaced. The cost to do so was $3,855.12. I found there was a NHTSA recall on 2/12/2014 for this issue, requiring a software upgrade to avoid the failure of the brake actuator. The dealer advises that software was updated in 2015 - which obviously didn't work because the brake actuator still failed. Lexus is refusing to cover this, even though the predicted failure occurred anyway. If anyone else has experienced this, please let me know. I am preparing litigation on this issue.

  4. Do you normally replace distributor rotors while you replace the timing belt?
  5. Some of the best companies in the world are known for their incredible cultures. Google, Apple and latterly Microsoft stand among the greats when it comes to working environments, and their cultures pay dividends. Not only do workers earn more in these companies, but they’re also vastly more productive than their rivals. Firm culture is potent because of its synergistic effects. Why Choose A Distributed Remote Workforce? What constitutes a good company culture is changing because of developments in the labor market. With the rise of distributed, remote working, it’s no longer the case that employees work together in tightly-knit offices or can quickly go out for a drink at lunchtime. New approaches must be found. That's not to say that these new practices don't have benefits. Companies want these new working patterns because it allows them to scale in a way that wasn’t possible before. Rather than workers being a kind of “fixed cost,” difficult to remove once installed, remote workers and distributed working patterns mean that companies can act a bit more like consumers, choosing to employ labor only when they need it. This “off-the-shelf” approach is helping to drive down company costs while simultaneously opening businesses up to a pool of talent which they wouldn’t ordinarily be able to access. Distributed working patterns combined with the freelance boom has led many companies to embrace the remote workforce in a way that simply wasn’t possible in the past. There are now so many talented individuals out there just waiting to sell their skills that firms have a real choice about who they employ. Competition between individual remote workers is driving up standards, meaning that companies not only save on costs but can get higher-quality work done in the process.
  6. Anyone know if it’s easy to disconnect the tpms sensors as to shut off the light that appears on my dash? Tired of replacing sensors and trying to see if it’s just easier to disconnect on my 07 Lexus is250
  7. Looking for a place/person to fix/replace my Navi touch screen. Everything works fine except the touchscreen. Preferably somewhere near San Diego.

    how do you turn off the security system on a 1991 Lexus?
  9. Yesterday
  10. I have never heard of a relay causing the click sound, we always went for the solenoid.... makes me wonder if we done it wrong all these years..
  11. It's flashing because you need to read the AC trouble codes. Check out this thread to show you how to read the codes. https://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/topic/3794-ac-codes/
  12. She suddenly started idling very slow, and surging, When I got out and went around the back, the exhausts were emitting black smoke. When I got home, I left it overnight, and it seemed to be okay this morning, except possibly idling slightly high. This afternoon she was okay for a while, then started back with the surging and slow idle, At the lowest point, about 200 RPM the CHECK ENG message flashed on for a split second, Other than that, there are no warnings, and one of my OBDII sensors showed no codes. Haven't checked my other sensor yet, I'll do that tomorrow. At one stage I gave it heaps, and it appeared to be quite good for a while. When I got home, there was no smoke, but there was quite a smell. I've only just now thought , I wonder if the cats might smell through working hard because of how rich it was running, Could that be the case? Any thoughts, anyone? Thank you.
  13. I SPENT DAYS TRYING TO GET TO THE BOLTS THAT HOLD IN THE STARTER, IT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE.
  14. GASKETS ARE EASY, HOW DO YOU GET THE REAR WATER BY-PASS JOINT REMOVED TO GET AT STATTER BOLTS?
  15. MY 1996 LS400 HAS JUST BEEN RECHARGED, THE AIR WAS ORIGINALLY WARM, AFTER CHARGING IT IS NOTICEABLE COOL (BARELY) AND THE A/C BUTTON KEEPS FLASHING. AM SUSPECT THE CABIN FILTER(S) NEED TO BE REPLACED (WHICH WILL BE DOING VERY SOON). JUST WANT TO BE SURE SOMETHING ELSE ISN'T CAUSING THE A/C BUTTON TO FLASH, BEFORE CHARGING IT DIDN'T FLASH. ANY INSIGHT WILL BE APPRECIATED.
  16. Last week
  17. So last time my battery was dead after a long out of town trip with dome light left on, I had to have vehicle towed to dealer for reset and new battery. Is there an easy way to reset everything once battery completely dies, and needs to be recharged or replaced? Or I am SOL until next time with gadget listed above? 2018 RX 350 parked outside in winter as spare vehicle, never thought about battery dying and needing charged and systems reset. Thanks for advice and support.
  18. There are mobile locksmith units that have the ability. I was in vacation in Temecula .CA and lost a fob. He came to my house and created 2 new ones for me for $250. It was a great deal - I was anticipating having it towed to the nearest dealer and paying a fortune.
  19. Wow, A, your actual paint is peeling. Mine is just like Netpro's - the clear coat wasn't done properly and it is all coming off. My friend calls it my "Friday paint job" because someone got in a hurry and didn't follow a step correctly. I plan on repainting mine this year completely. My challenge right now is to find a seat cover replacement kit for the crappy perforated leather they put in. It is shredding. I am the second owner and I don't think the first owner used leather conditioner.
  20. Maybe someone in the GS300 section may be of more hlep https://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/forum/1-lexus-gs300-gs350-gs400-gs450h-gs430-gs-460-club/
  21. A very vague description for people to go on. ☹️Could be anything. Try and pin it down a bit. Driving .... Turning, braking, accel ...etc Hood open and idling, revved?..... etc.........
  22. I didn't know this gadget existed so I appreciate the reply. This would be good to have in the toolbox. There is one other way to change the battery with uninterrupted power to the computer. I changed the battery with the car running; no resets required. Thanks again!
  23. Before disconnecting the car battery get a gizmo such as: VSTM OBD II Vehicle ECU Emergency... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MPY0DNI?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share This will keep uninterrupted power to the computer during installation, so no subsequent resets are needed. Used it myself couple of months ago.
  24. I have a 2004 RX330 and normally had the dome lights off, but when I went to turn them on recently none of them worked. Also my moonroof controls do not work and when I use them there is no noise. I checked the 30A moonroof and 7.5A dome light fuses and both are good. What else should I check?
  25. Based on the parts diagrams on http://www.toyodiy.com , the air filters are very different in size and shape.
  26. Good thing it was just the relay.Glad your back on the road.
  27. Does the 2013 LS 460 and the 2018 LS 500 have the same engine air filters? I just changed the filters in my 13 LS to K&N filters and now I’m trading it in for a LS 500. Want to know if I can use those same filters in the newer car.
  28. I have a 1995 SC400 and bought a new OEM key which has been cut. Neither Lexus nor a Locksmith can get the key to accept the code. The Lexus dealer said the door actuator was not functioning properly so the key would not complete encoding. However, the power door function opens and closes. There are rare occasions when I can't open the door from the inside using the power lock without having to mess with it a bit. Is Lexus correct that the key won't program because of the actuator not functioning properly?
