  1. The Lexus brand cell phone that was a dealer installed option lowered the HVAC fan speed and muted the audio system while a call was in progress. I even connected an aftermarket Nokia CARK-91 phone system I installed in my second (2000) LS400 to mute the audio system but I didn't bother to connect it to lower the HVAC fan speed. Even when a Lexus phone system was never installed, corrosion of the factory installed cell phone harness in the trunk can cause HVAC and audio system issues.

  3. Any particular window? Or all of them? I gotta ask: is anybody sleeping in the car that you may not know about? In my dads non climate control garage if there's a big change in weather, especially warm to cool where inside is in say a humid 80's but then quickly falls to the 50's or 60's when a cold front passes through, everything has a coating of condensation so it could be as simple as weather changing.

  4. I have owned this car since new. It has been garaged all its life, low mileage and in excellent shape. I have been parking it outside now for a bit and noticed condensation forming on the windows? Any idea what may be causing the condensation? Sunroof drains are clear and not an issue. Thought maybe the door seals may not be sealing correctly? I would appreciate any thoughts on this subject. Thanks

  5. I just started driving an 019 Explorer XLT for work. I chuckled at all the stuff my 2004 GS300 does this one does not. My work is dusty so I kept the windows up while out of it. Well, I held the unlock button down for 5 seconds hoping the windows would roll down to let it begin cooling. Nope. Later I needed to put stuff in the back but there was no "pop the tailgate" button, no "pop the filler door" button when I needed fuel, the electric seats are only 4 way, no memory for seat and steering wheel settings, no dual climate control etc. Now it's a fairly nice riding, well handling vehicl

  8. Go easy on me but I’m excited to become part of this family. Truth be told this is the only social media I’ve ‘signed’ up for. I own 3 Lexus’ at this point and have nuttin but love for them! GS 350, GS 450h Neiman Marcus Edition (#1 of 75) along with an IS 350 with over 220,000 miles (it just keeps on going). Thank you Lexus for making such beautiful, reliable and incredible vehicles. Any idea where to find a factory repair manual for the 07 GS450H? Also looking for the Neiman Marcus floor mats and car cover. ✌️

  9. I didn’t read the entire thread so I don’t know if this is already been answered but Toyota sells an 062 - BC which is the basecoat followed by the 062 pearl and then you follow that with a clear coat so it’s a three-step process

  10. Do you ever want to remotely open the rear door? Just not be able to while in the garage? You could alter the fob perhaps so that the button no longer works as easily, like placing some kind of glue around the button to make it really hard to press. How long does it have to be pressed down to work? Looking at pictures of various RX key fobs it appears you have to hold down the button to activate it.

  11. "backup camera, Bluetooth phone and audio, radar cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and a system that nudges the vehicle back into its lane if it drifts out. A few bucks more gets blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic assist and parking sensors. Our 2000 LS400's have none of those features" All of those features seem lame to me. The last thing I want my vehicle to do is beep at me, brake or move the wheel.

  12. I suspect that the reason that the reason that Bluetooth phone systems standard in newer vehicles do not turn down HVAC fan speeds is that noise cancelling microphone technology makes it unnecessary. Automatic radio volume increase based on road noise has been around a long time. The volume of radios available in the 1957 Ford Thunderbird increased with speed and the radios also a search feature that would find the next available radio station on the dial. The 1956 Mercedes 190SL 2-seat convertible I drove as a kid even had a turn signal like lever on the steering column that would

  15. Great story Mike, always nice to know someones journey through life, and especially through forums. Forums have come and gone much like most things in life but forums have always been there with a friendly atmosphere but social is just like chatting to a stranger in the street but not the same as having a beer with your friends. Time certainly does fly though, got to make every day count as you get the other side of the hill 🙂

  27. Ugh! We all get them. Now that nearly everybody has dropped Ma Bell type phone service and gone cellular so have the robo calls. Some phones let you block them. But if you are expecting the Maytag man to call from a strange number saying he's enroute or your kids borrow phones from friends because they forgot to charge theirs……it's not always practical to block those unfamiliar numbers. So today (while expecting a call from a delivery service) I saw on my ID a familiar looking number so I answered it. Turns out it was an auto insurance sales call. He starts out "so I see you have au

  30. The bike above was custom made by a fellow who makes a living building bicycles for Worksman in New York. We talked about a few dimensions, cogs and wheels. It has a 2 speed coaster brake wheel called "kick back" where you press the brake lightly to switch from low to high. After it arrived I put a 22 tooth rear sprocket and 36 tooth front sprocket for 0-12 in a hurry with a high gear that lets me cruise at about 18mph. The car was a 2001 Honda Prelude my son bought real cheap with a botched rebuit engine. The piston walls have the same material as a Porche engine and the folks that reb

  31. The fact that it has 18" tires means it was not the high priced model with all the bells and whistles offered on the Lexus Bread and Butter model, as they choose to call it. So, there is less options to go bad in the next 10 years. 20" tires are incompatible in areas that have a lot of high profile curbs that can tear up your fancy rims. And you have more rubber between the rim and the road with 18" tires. If it's a lease car, the records are at the dealership. I still avoid lease cars. I look at them as rentals with 3 years on the contract instead of 3 days. I look for cars that

  33. @RXOR_02 im on stock height and suspension. Wheels are 16x8 Raceline Injector +18 offset. Tires are 245/70/16 Toyo Open Country A/T3. The offset makes the difference for strut clearance, didnt want to go with spacers. They clear the base of the rear strut by maybe 5/16”. No rubbing on the front tires either. unfortunately i was t-boned about a week after that photo...RIP RX.

  34. I suppose if it is a hybrid then ensure that they have carried out a hybrid health check to make sure the batteries are in first class condition and capacity is not compromised by lack of use during any lockdown period. Otherwise, they are generally superb vehicles and you shouldn't have any problem as long as it also comes with a dealer and/or manufacturer warranty

  37. This is such BAD practice and should never be done. The battery shorts AC spikes and transients to ground. Removing the battery while the engine is running allows spikes and transients to run throughout the car's electrical system potentially causing damage to every semiconductor circuit in the car. At best, this practice can also damage the alternator diodes and voltage regulator. Electrical damage doesn't happen in every instance this is done. But now that you're having issues who knows where the fault it.

  39. Sounds like the previous was solved. Going to bring an old thread back for a minute. My son told me the volume won't change on the factory stereo of the 04 GX 300 I bought from him. I noticed if you push on the volume knob toward the right of the car while twisting the volume knob it goes up or down. I'm pretty sure it can be fixed but for now at least it can be adjusted.

  41. Hi, I figured it out. There are 3 connectors to the door ECU. The far right connector that is closest to the door latch was not snug. I believe this is what controlled the auto-up/down feature. I retraced my steps and with help of other's suggestions, I found the problem and the window works now. Thank you.

  44. The middle shaft was shortened about 1.5 in. When it twisted and it pulled the front shaft backwards. I was able to cut about a 3rd of an inch off the front of the front carrier mount so the axle flange hardware would clear. There was still enough spines in the output to still seal so I filled it back up. On Sunday it took me 3 hrs to go 50 miles back to civilization. I was able to track down a totaled 03 awd on craigslist. The driveshaft was pretty much all that was left abs she would only take $20 for it.

  45. Ok, now I feel like an idiot. The wife took the car to a repair shop this morning, verdict: both headlights are burned out. I had checked fuses, relays, wiring, never even thought of the bulbs! New lamps being installed and the RX300 will once again have lights to see and drive by ! Just thought i'd post and let you know.

  46. I've done a "reset" several times by disconnecting the battery for about 5 minutes. It's a pretty painless process and certainly worth the effort to troubleshoot your problem. Just disconnect the negative terminal.

  47. what is emule? anyway what i need incase i cant get a repair manual, is to really know how to change the two belts step by step? pictures would help. i really dont know any of this, thats why a manual would help. but im not sure where to upload it to. thanks again. The belts are not as easy to change as one might expect. Also the belts last a long time. I have almost 120K on mine and they show no sign of needing a change yet. The best way to get this info is to use the search function on this forum. Here is a link to what you want: http://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/index...442&hl=b
