  1. I installed my refurbished amplifier today and problem solved. The instructions that came with the unit said that I should wait up to 5 minutes while the amp communicates with the radio, and the radio and the car had to be on during this test. So, I waited several minutes, then tried turning up the sound, and it worked! I ended up getting my amp from my local Lexus dealer. I told them that I found an amp online for $495, and they gladly offered to match the price. Lexus backs the unit with a 12 month warranty. I might of been able to find an amp for less, but I was tired of messing around, I
  2. Possibly the amp, I would say so from here. Not unusual though. You could check for a loose connector. Thanks for replying so quickly, dcfish. Any help / advice you can give will be much appreciated. I have read many postings on club lexus of other "01"LS owners having the amplifier go bad.

  5. Do you have factory wipers on the car? I tried aftermarket wipers on my LS430 and was rewarded with a sound similar to what you discribe. I then installed factory Lexus wipers and the noise went away.
  6. I have a 2001 LS430 UL, and recently the radio was working fine in the morning but there was no sound when I left work in the afternoon. From what I have read in the fourms, I am guessing the amp is the problem. I have metered the speakers and did'nt find anything open or shorted to ground. What else can I check, or is it just time to buy an amp?
