Hi LOC Community,
I have a 1996 LS400 with around 80K miles on it. I really lucked out with this car because as everyone would know that buying a used car can have its share of joy and pain. So far so good. Very happy with it.
It has the premium Nakamichi sound system in it. And I love the old school easy usability with minimum buttons and a tape player.
The 2 problems I am having with it are:
1. the CD changer doesn't work (I am not too concerned with that)
2. the stereo sound is only coming out of the driver side speakers. No sound from Passenger side speakers
I have replaced the head unit because the first one would switch from FM to tape on its own. Speakers would only sound from the driver side. Even after replacing the sound is still coming from the driver side only.
Then i thought that my amplifier was bad when I read on a thread that is usually the culprit. Replaced the amp, same problem. I thought that maybe the amp that I had put in was also bad so replaced again but still have the same issue.
So, 2 headunits and 3 amps later I still have no sound from the passenger side speakers.
Sometimes while driving with the stereo on, the right side speakers will "click" with some static but sound will not come.
I like to keep my car stock so I don't want to replace the whole stereo with aftermarket stuff. Just putting that out there :)
I am hoping that someone on the forum can help me out find what I can look for.
Just gutted my stock system from my 99 GS300. Headunit, amp and cd changer all worked except the lcd was going out on the display. I swapped in a touchsceen dvd with all the modern conveniences to bring it up to date. I don't have room to keep this stuff around on a shelf collecting dust so i'm open to offers. Thanks!
Just started the other day with the FM on and then is jumped to Sirus... then the CD came out... FM back on ..... Then my SOS was notified that it was off... so I had to restart that.. Went to Lexus the other day for its 40K service. I told them about it.... could not find anything... this morning... worse than before... Anyone else know of this?

Odd request, I know, but here's the story. I want to install an aftermarket amp, but I can't bear to cut the factory wiring harness. So far, I haven't been able to find a plug for S14, S15, and W8. Since my original (stock) amp works, I don't want to tear it apart just for connectors (especially since eBay has them for $175 and up!). I'm not sure it will work, but I'll try and make my own harness.
If you have one you'll let go for a little more than shipping, want to send connectors, or know where to find the plugs, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
