  3. Hey guys, I am fairly new here to the forum and thought I'd post my problem. I am a loyal Lexus owner and now have my first issue with my 2005 LS 430 with 90K miles. This Sapphire White beauty has been a dream car since day one and untill now, no issues what so ever. Seems the actuator on my driver door will need to be replaced. From the research it seems to be the problem unless I am wrong? When I'm sitting in the car and hit the internal door lock, all doors lock except the driver door lock and work fine. It is also a hassle because it won't lock when I use the remote smart key to lock the car. Because the driver doors won't lock the computer senses it and the alarm won't set, I get the warning beep alerting like a door ajar. I have to manually lock the driver door before I exit, then I close the door then set the door lock/alarm. To unlock when returning to my car, I have to use the remote to roll down the window so I can reach inside to unlock the door because all doors unlock except my driver door. Now this is a Lexus and you Lexus owners know that this is unacceptable. Our cars are perfect in every way, they drive perfect, they look perfect and always work perfect. Lexus wants $1270 for the part and repair. Has anybody done this job as a DIY and if so, what problems had you had when doing it? Been checking around for the price for the part and finding the cost to be between $300-$499 Would appreciate any information from other loyal owners out there and would appreciate any information to the fix had you done or had done. Thanks much all and will wait to hear back with any or all information to this issue,.
