Don't Let It Rain!

Recommended Posts

When it rains my car doors don't unlock and windows don't go down...sometimes just my door and window work only...something must be getting wet. WHAT?

Our cars the 2nd gen GS are known for having issues with the door lock actuators. The door panel is easy to remove take it of and see if the door ECU is getting wet.

BTW welcome to the club of being on Lexus owner.

2000 GS3 with 140k here in South Carolina..... 3 weeks ago my passenger side door lock stopped working all together! Will not lock manually or with the keyless however window works fine. I am assuming that the connecting rod between the lock assmbly and lock button came disconnected. Whats the steps to pull off the door panel? Done it in the past to a few cars but the push pins are always a pain and normally break a few. Any suggestions? Is it worth buying a panel puller tool?

Ever get to Columbia SC I could help you. should not take more than an hour a side. It is pretty easy. I would like to buy your bad actuators... maybe we could working something out.
