  1. Hello Lexus owner. I have a 1994 SC400 with 77k miles, clean car fax, champagne/ gold color. Any one interested?

    Thank you

  2. Short update: It's out of storage as of April 2018 for any prospective buyers to test drive. Will post on local craigslist in the next few weeks.
  3. Thanks guys! I got it posted. It is the SC from that post.
  4. Selling a mint condition 2004 SC430 red convertible. Has a low 14,500 miles with an excellent service history. Bone stock, no modifications to the vehicle whatsoever. Great sounding v8 has a low throaty rumble than the quiet LS430’s. Car comes with some extras for storage in the winter months. Very clean car inside and out. Engine bay and undercarriage has absolutely no rust or corrosion. Both owners of this car took great care of it, not driving it in rain or salty roads. Everything on the car works as the first day it was sold. Maintenance has been well cared for as all oil changes were done
  5. Well you can probably guess by my username but I'm the son of Landar. Unfortunately Landar lost a long battle with lung and brain cancer for over a year. I need to get his Lexus sold quick before I need to put it in storage for 9 months.
  6. As a lurker, I understand the meaning of the rules for the buy/sell section. I need to sell a car ASAP and I don't want to create garbage posts (such as this one) to get it on there. A certain member of this forum has given a lot to this community, unfortunately passed away and I feel it would be in his best interest to give back to this community one last time. If not it will go on craigslist.
  7. Drivers door handle has an additional switch on it to turn on the keyhole light. Basically, in the dark, your supposed to pull on the door handle, it lights the keyhole, now you can see in the dark to where put your key without scratching the paint. Then theres an LED or light attached to the cylinder lock with 2 wires on the side to light the key hole. Then there are the three wires on the very back of the cylinder that is used for the cylinder positioning. If the latter is broken off, you'll set the alarm off by unlocking only the driver door manually. And you can't unlock/lock all doors wi

  9. Well today I took off the door panel to get to the cylinder switch. Here are some photos to show what I mean. I cleaned up the contacts inside but there was some corrosion that I couldn't get off with some penetrating oil. The black stuff in the photos is completely gone, and I reflowed the solder to the traces in case there was a cold solder joint in there (yes, I may be crazy but I don't want to keep taking off the panel again). I slightly bent the rotating contact piece so there was more force on the contact points. The locks seem to respond when I got everything back together. I tried a co
  10. Correction: When I said "position switch" or "position sensor" for the actuator I meant limit switch or limit sensor. For the cylinder sensor, it's just a switch. I still have the salvaged cylinder switch. It can be easily removed off the cylinder lock. It connects to the cylinder via a plastic flat head type connection. Then it has contacts VISIBLE for moisture to corrode. :/
  11. I have a pearl white 92 LS400 that has been good to me for 6 years so far. I do not use the wireless remote key to get into it, so that means using the drivers door lock a couple times a day since this is my daily driver. The problem I have is the alarm going off when unlock the door. This means sticking the key in, turning to the right, then BEEEPP! BEEEP! BEEEP!! DAMN IT!! What is weird is that the alarm goes off sometimes, not EVERY TIME. Sometimes the door lock actuator tries to "fight" my hand turning the key. So I took the interior panel off the door and pulled out the locking mechani
  12. Heater blower increase in motion is normal, it's a way of Lexus to quite things down at rest, same with the wipers. I think I had a very similar problem before. Wasn't serious enough to stall the engine or had to put it in neutral. I would get "hiccups" from the engine. It only happened when cruising (maintaining speed with no acceleration or foot off pedal) around 30-45mph. It was subtle and erratic and bothered the heck out of me. Engine was strong with acceleration and fluids in transmission and differential were checked. However, I decided to check my spark plugs, perhaps there was a cyli
