05 Ls430 What Is This Thing In The Auxiliary Box


Recommended Posts


Could anyone please tell me what is this "black mesh" like thing on the auxiliary box in the dash (above the seat heat/cool controlling knobs) ?

I am very interested in buying this used '05 LS430. I haven't seen this car yet, but I am thinking of putting a deposit to hold the car. I just want to make sure that this not a cheap and horrible aftermarket modification..

Thank for your help...

DUDE..... dude.... DUUUUUUDE......(taken from the commercial)

That is not stock.. and who knows what it controls..but I can tell you that it was originally a tray that pops out once you push it in... Do that and see where the wires lead you to..

Thanks ScottMcc.. No offense to anyone -- I hate aftermarket modifications.. Would I be able to go to a Lexus dealer and have all the crap removed and put the original "box" back in ?

More importantly should I be worried ?

I also noticed this little black box on the edge of the trunk, above tail lights.. Does anyone know what is this one ?

Thanks.. I get amazing help from this website...

So looks like this front and rear radar detectors are also after market..

At the expense of sounding ignorant, can I ask if I should be concerned about having these kind of things in the car ?

Would these modifications cause reliability problems later ?
