  2. Have you tried alternating (on/off) the "auto" feature? Does it affect the heat? When was the last time your heating system coil was flushed? There is a temperature control valve also. If you don't want to go to a Lexus dealer, find a good local independent mechanic.

  3. I'm sure a lot of us have heard about Matt Farah's legendary million mile Lexus, but have you heard of the 1,400 Mile 2005 Lexus LS430? Well, it's in the Philippines, and probably one of the lowest mileage examples in the world. See it here on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/aDijYmBzzhI https://youtu.be/aDijYmBzzhI

  5. This does make you wonder how many fake parts enter the automotive aftermarket. Although this is not a new problem and I personally was involved in resolving an issue with fake GM parts being sold as authentic parts way back in the early 1990's. But it does make you aware of what can happen in the event of a part failing and causing damage to the car or occupants 😞

  6. Advice from 11 years ago is exactly what I needed. I am having the same problem with my Lexus RX 300. A battery is all I need? I can do that!

  9. There have been some complaints over the years but this site's severity rating is a 2. 14 Complaints: 2006 Lexus RX 400h Power Train Problems (carcomplaints.com) I have not seen many similar complaints in this forum. Did you scan for codes?

  10. Update: Well Jim, you were correct: The aftermarket rear wiper blades are garbage vs. the genuine article from Lexus. Once temps here finally rose above freezing I was able to remove, clean, lube and reinstall the rear wiper arm and blade assembly - with little to no improvement in effectiveness. Went to Lexus and purchased a new blade. Both blade assemblies looked exactly the same, but right away I could feel the difference between the two blades as I had both lying on the counter: The after-market blade assembly exhibited stiffness in the joints that support the wiper strip. The Lexus b

  11. I want to buy a new SUV in 2021, but I can't stand the ugly grille on the Lexus RX 350. Hope Lexus will redesign and come out with a new better looking grille.

  12. To anyone having this problem...... Engine & whole system including power steering DIES AS YOU ARE DRIVING! There is no pattern, it doesn't matter what speed you're doing etc. Dash lights up like a Christmas tree, "check engine light," "Check Hybrid System" come on and all kinds of other problems. You may have tried replacing the 12v battery - this helps reset the system but does NOT solve the problem. You may have tried the simple reset on the dash display hoping that will do something - it does NOT solve the problem. This is a dangerous situation! BUT, you may be driving a

  14. Good info here Same thing happened with my elder brothers 07 LS460L; solution was that the mechanic took out the latching machine out and aligned it and put it back again; then the trunk started to lock normally as it would do It is highly unlikely that the latch system will die; most likely it can be fixed

  15. Hi.....welcome to the forum. As far as preventative maintenance goes, I would replace anything that looks under par, such as filters that look old, belts that are perishing, same with tyres. All of these can be done over time and lead to a better and more economical and reliable drive.

  17. I want to thank the writers to this post. I have a ES 330 with the same problem and after much searching I am glad I found this post. I was debating the the part number and this gave me clarification. So thanks again for the clear and complete information.

  22. Check engine light was on 2001 LS430 pulled codes found P0135 Oxygen Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction Bank 1 Sensor 1 1. Bank 1 is on the drivers side, Bank 2 is on the passenger side 2. Sensor 1 is the upper sensor or upstream sensor in the manifold, Sensor 2 is the downstream sensor 3. Disconnect the sensor on the Driver Side, on mine the heatshield was too close to the sensor to be able to get anything in there to push the tab let alone a hand in there do disconnect it, I used a prybar and tweeked the shield a little so I could get a Right Angled Pick in there to push the tab down to

  23. Many have questions on how to program the Homelink buttons. It is in the owner's manual but sometimes it may be confusing to understand the terminology. I've summarized what the manual states, and hopefully this will help anyone in the future (as I have in the past already hehe) "Ok. Delete the codes in the homelink then try this. (To delete, hold down the first and third buttons at the same time, hold for about 30-60 seconds till the light blinks really fast. Release and check if deleted if the light blinks at a slow but steady pace. That means there's nothing stored on that button) Hold do

  24. I changed my driver's side sensor at the manifold very recently. It really wasn't that bad. I used the small O2 sensor wrench in the Autozone loaner kit. It probably wasn't necessary on my car, but I sprayed it with a mix of acetone/ATF to help break it loose. The sensor was easy, but the thing that took the longest was experimenting trying to put pressure on the tab of the electrical connector. I ended up using a very small flat-blade screwdriver clamped into some needle-nose vise grips.

  25. I took the car back to the dealership with an old clip-on garage door opener and the sales guy who sold me the car did it for me. if you have one of the newer rolling coder garage door openers, you have to do it on your driveway. Check youtube for how-to videos.

  26. I have on 07 RX and a Chamberlain liftmaster. It was a frustrating experience to say the least but I finally got it. Now that I've done it I can do it about 14-15 times and not even bat an eye. What, for me, was the stumbling block was my liftmaster remote passing along the sequence to the Homelink remote BEFORE hitting the Learn button on the opener itself. Even though the liftmaster remote was like 1 inch away it wasn't "seeing it". I held down the '1' key and the liftmaster remote almost touching the 2 and 3 keys and that did the trick. For anyone else out there, I recommend reading,
