  1. Apparently, no other ES 300 owner has owned both the 98 and 2001 Lexus ES300?
  2. Dear fellow Lexus owners, Disconnecting the Positive Battery Cable on my 98 Lexus ES300 doesn't work. It had no effect. The key fob still won't lock or unlock the car. Does anyone know the best place to stand to lock the doors remotely? Does anyone have another idea? JC
  3. Dear Helpermunkey, I will try the disconnecting the battery and see. JC
  4. I am having a similar problem with my 98 Lexus ES300. Up until last month, the remote locking/unlocking feature worked fine. Now, My 98 Lexus ES300 is no longer locking using the remote key fob. I have checked the coin battery in the fob, and changed it, to no effect. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know the best place to stand to lock the doors remotely?
  5. Dear fellow Lexus owners, my 98 Lexus ES300 apparently has a burned out center brake light bulb. I couldn't figure out how to access it and change it. Help! JC .
  6. Dear fellow Lexus owners, my 98 Lexus ES300 is such a great car, after a few years, I purchased what I thought was basically the same car, a 2001 Lexus ES300. Then the troubles began. The 01 Lexus has automatic dimming mirrors. The driver side mirror began clouding up, a very expensive fix. Since I bought a Lexus safety inspected used car, I contacted Lexus and they agreed to pay half the repair. The 01 runs halfway up on the temp gauge, while the 98 runs at 1/8. I have to add water every few months with the 01. The heater fan on the 01 has an interference problem and someti
  7. Dear Trevor, Sorry it took so long to reply. I missed the notification that you had responded. There definitely is some difference in the two radiator systems. In fact, I have to add water every 6 months, to the 01 Lexus ES300, but I have never had to add any water to the 98 Lexus ES300. JC
  8. Dear fellow Lexus owners, my 01 Lexus ES300 runs a lot hotter than my 98 Lexus ES300. Both have the same engine. The 98 temp gauge shows in the very low area, and the 01 shows medium. The 98 Lexus radiator capacity, 9.2 L, or 9.7 Qt The 01 Lexus radiator capacity, 8.8 L, or 9.3 Qt That .4 qt shouldn't make such a big diff in operating temp. Does anyone else have this problem with the 01 Lexus? JC
  9. Lexus Owners 300918 Thanks for Flasher info Dear Fellow Lexus Owners, Thanks for the Flasher info! It turned out there was a little corrosion on the bulb, making it malfunction. I took out the bulb and put it back in, and it started working again. JC
  10. Dear Fellow Lexus ES300 owners, at 204,000 miles, I had to have the Power Steering High pressure hose replaced on my 98 Lexus ES300 for $360, including the part. One of the repairmen that gave an estimate told me that it is a very common repair for the Toyota 3 liter V6 engine.
  11. Dear GBHRPS, I am still working this problem. Is the front left seat motor system the same on Lexus and Camry? If I buy a camry motor, will it work?
  12. Dear GBHRPS, Thank you for your great, detailed reply. I will try it. JC

  14. Lexus Owners Club 080218 malfunctioning seat adjustment Dear fellow Lexus owners, my 2001 ES300 drivers seat forward-back adjustment stopped working. Now I can't move the seat forward so my short wife can drive the car. I can tell it is not the motor, as the seat tilt, and up-down works, and there is a click when I try to move the seat forward or back. There is no obstruction I could see under the seat to prevent movement. Has anyone had this problem? How do I fix it? JC
