  1. Good info here Same thing happened with my elder brothers 07 LS460L; solution was that the mechanic took out the latching machine out and aligned it and put it back again; then the trunk started to lock normally as it would do It is highly unlikely that the latch system will die; most likely it can be fixed
  2. Good question Welcome back; i am sure the 2014 must be more smoother with a refreshed dashboard
  3. Come'on guys, the car is already 10 years old, dont you think it can deteriorate, moreover it greatly depends on the environment in which the car is kept
  4. Absolutely agree man, the big solid yellow exclamation and then while in motion blinking explanation is even more frustrating but as i said not worth it so i will just close my one eye Here in this country you can pass an inspection even with the check engine light on, the inspection is not taking account the electronic part/ lights glowing in the dash, only mechanical inspection from underneath the car; oil leak check; Tyre tread check; break check; indicators check; headlight check; wipers check and you are good to go
  5. Hi Craig Thanks for asking, to be honest i let it go; it appears i just have to replace all the sensors inside the rubber which in my opinion not worth the money considering when i am already moving to Canada sometime this year;
  6. Hi Craig Thanks for the reply, After reading the above thread and multiple nested threads inside that, i came to realize that i should leave it as it is, i can wait for the initial 30 seconds to let the "AC switch off" display message in my Nav screen and then turn the AC on However on the side note, can you please help me in setting the TPMS thing, there is a warning light popping up always I am aware that the TPMS sensors are inside the rubber tyres but how to configure it thats a big question, i am aware that there is a reset button but unfortunately that is not working
  7. In my local market, i am going with the total quartz full synthetic 5W30 2 gallons straight away, experience is much better than the shell (also 5w30) oil which i used earlier, how better? is because i feel that now the engine is running a much smoother if you carefully feel it One note i would like to make that these days i am seeing the marketing is changed for the oil packaging cheaper oils are also hitting the market which are saying synthetic technology or synthetic blend (maybe not in the US), quite frankly have no idea whats the catch but i just avoid it anyways and pay little extr
  8. Hi everyone, Its been a long time since i posted anything here, so i purchased a 07 LS460 white (inside beige) at 183,000 km- full options minus two things which are the radar cruise control and the air suspension not to mention the LKA ( i am located in middle east), i had no idea of the previous owner no service history at all, yes i would say i took the risk but what i felt that the car is good since it had no dashboard lights, currently only caution light is there because of the front sonar system and the as usual the ridiculous TPMS After driving it for a while, what i imagine t
  9. Hi Craig The thing is unfortunately in this part of the world (middle east) no body cares and customer feedback have 0 value, and yes there is no lexus corporate here Can i buy an ECU from a junkyard for a lets say 2000 LS? will it work with mine?
  10. Hi Craig Yes i saw your post sometime back, but do you think that if i reach out to Lexus at this point of time they will entertain? considering that the car was imported to UAE, i will try to reach them and will report back, From your post what i can understand you did managed to change it in the year 2014, so i am guessing i still have a chance Looking at the PDF of the SSC, my VIN number falls within that range which is specified as compared below campaign-ssc-wl2-1998-gs400-ls400-sc400-ecm-replacement.pdf
  11. Hi Ok reporting back after a short drive, well it appears that the problem is solved now, and yes check engine light is also gone by itself after driving at slow and constant speed, so from the pictures below, exactly 1 box of fuel is remaining and it is showing 100 miles range which is normal, we can say this a success story!
  12. Hi All Well reporting back, following things got replaced Valve cover gasket Knock sensors (unfortunately the wiring harness was not used by the mechanic i think he was not able to connect it, well i will keep it for future) Fuel filter PCV valve with the gasket Two transmission coolant hoses which are below the radiator Some pics And the flashy new one installed Now the knock sensors and ECT sensor PCV valve old Replaced the two transmission hoses which are below the radiator which were cracked
  13. Hi Jim I believe we are not driving LS and expecting it to be loaded with the tech of this 21st century, its not fair to compare, i have driven the following Ford Mustang GT 2006- 4.6 litre V8 (brother in law owns it) Nissan Patrol 1999- 4.8 litre I6 (elder brother owns it) Nissan Armada 2006- 5.6 litre V8 (brother in law owns it) Lexus RX 330 (sister in law owns it) Lexus LS 430 2001 (elder brother owns it) Lexus LS 400 1998 (i own it) BMW X5 2015 4.4 litre V8 (my wife's sister husband owns it) Audi Q3 2014 3.2 litre V6 (my wife's sister
