  1. Thank you for the diagram. I'm sure it will help. If the motor gets power and I hear it. How could it be the switch? A switch either completes the circuit or not. As the motor is turning I don't see how it could be the switch. Please help me understand. Is there a second circuit the switch is failing to activate? Thank you.
  2. Hi, Hope folks can help. I searched for drivers window not moving motor works.... But only found things for the window switch not operating other windows. 1991 Lexus Ls400 Window is stuck down. When I hit the switch windows does not move. I can hear motor turning. If I try down, same thing. From LEXLS I know how to take the inside door cover off. But I need help on what to do with the window not working. Thank you.
  3. Hi, My 1991 LS400 is having a cooling issue.put new radiator on two months ago. All was good after that. Now when car has engine on and I'm not moving like when parked or in traffic the engine temp slowly starts to climb up. ehen I give it gas and start to move, at fist there is another small jump in temp but in a short distance the temp goes down to where it should be. Until I'm at a stop. Then it start going up again. No loss of coolant. Mechanical engine fan is working. I'm thinking either water pump is acting up or it is the electric fans. I'm leaning to it be
  4. Wow... You found one I had not seen.... Not cheep by any means... But if it works... Have you used it? I'm not sure it will fit as when you slide the factory cup holders out and open, there is not much clearance between the arm rest. But I'll look into this. Thank you.
  5. Could have been a ground fualt. If it was then you may kill this new unit until you find out why it ground faulted. But no way to tell without opening up the failed unit. Some AutoZone stuff is not the best. But that is not why they did not check it. They did not check it becouse they did not care. It was bad. They were not looking to sell you one. So they just gave you a replacement and tossed the old one on the bad pile.
  6. It may be the gear. If it is and you need more then the washer fix, new gears are not expensive. Rock Auto has them. You will find the search feature on forums to be if great help. In general before posting please run a search on not only the forum, but on your favorite search engine. Most videos will even come up on a search engine. But it helps to search YouTube directly. The only frustrating thing can be if you get so many responce and most are off subject that the results are useless. Like if you search for 95 Lexus Ls400 radiator cap and get everything that has the
  7. Well not a very technical topic I know. But I'm sure most of you know those 90 though 02 cup holders don't hold those monster drinks of today. My Yete style mug dose not even fit. I have done some research on Ls400 and cup holders and not found anything other then how to's on the factory units. I'm wondering what other Ls400 folks are using from the aftermarket so you don't have to hold you cup as you drive. Or sort of use a towel or something to wedge it against the empty pasanger seat. And so on. I have found the ones that go over the top of the door and into the wind
  8. I'm not sure buying and swiping out the streeing column is the way to go. Can you tell me what you base doing that on? I already bought the gear to fix the tilt issue. Not an expensive part. I'm guessing that adjusting the loose fit on the wiper switch is an easy thing. Maybe even just a set screw? Just need to find someone that knows about it. And as for the horn, it may just be one wire to replace. Also craigslist is not like eBay. You don't just look at it. It is devided by states and city's. And most likely I can do better on a guaranteed part like a steering column by buying f
  9. Hi, All my door locks work as they should accept the pasanger rear door. It will only lock or unlock manually. I understand Lexus does not use a door lock solenoid. But instead actually uses a gear motor to lock and unlock the door. And that that motor is costly. Anyone know of a good how to on fixing this? Anyone have any luck converting over to a cheep door lock solenoid? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
  10. Hi, I'm having some issues with my horn, the wiper controllers and the tilt wheel. Let's start with the horn. If I trigger the alarm the horn will sound. But 99.999% of the time if I push on the horn nothing happens. Now if I keep pushing on the horn as I turn the steering wheel lock to lock I will get a beep or two. So I'm assuming my horn issue is in the steering wheel. Anyone know of any how to's on fixing this? The horn is important to have. Any posable parts I'm likely to need? Also the tilt wheel no longer goes up or down automatically or manually. I bought a new gear.
  11. RESPONCE Thank you for responding. I know it is tempting to skip parts on a long post and just respond. But this post is long becouse I wanted to give out all the needed information. Like the part about a new battery already being put in the car. And yes, we did test it more then once. The posability of a bad connection is one of the items we will be running down. The connections that are a easy reach at the battery have been checked with a meter for resistance. Realy need to hear from anyone that has info on what could make the headlights/dash do what it did and how you
  12. Hi, been a long times since I have needed help. But me and my 1991 Lexus LS400 are back. Had an issue with my starter going out on me. The mechanic I used for 15 years past away so I needed to find a new one. Found a guy who came to me. Started the job and then disappeared never to come back or return a call. He got the new starter in, but that is were he stopped. Found a new guy. Really good. He finished the job along with putting in all new ignition parts due to other guy messing up wires and distributors caps. The car is about 20 thousand miles away from needing that. So I put in all ne
  13. I took more time trying to find just where the leak is. I saw that the hose from the tank goes to a pipe. But the tube and pipe move easily. Any one have info on where that Line hoes to. I looked for a diagram on google but found nothing.
