  1. It's flashing because you need to read the AC trouble codes. Check out this thread to show you how to read the codes. https://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/topic/3794-ac-codes/
  2. Good thing it was just the relay.Glad your back on the road.
  3. Welcome to the club. First you need to check and make sure the battery is good. If it's good then with that amount of miles it's a good bet that the starter has died.
  4. I knew the LS 500 felt smaller when I sat in it but almost the same size as a Camry is just a shame.
  5. If it's at a Lexus dealer I doubt it's a flood car.
  6. Find one off a junkyard car. http://www.car-part.com/index.htm
  7. For the 98-00 yes because the camshaft needs to be removed but for your 96 I don't believe you have to remove the valve cover.
  8. This happened to me a number of times until I figured out what was going on. You have to manually release the parking brake under the start button when this happens. It's actualy a safety feature when the brake hold is on too long the computer assumes that the car is in park or something to that effect.
  9. Glad that you got it sorted out.
  10. Well known issue across the years. https://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls-1st-and-2nd-gen-1990-2000/715422-1997-ls400-door-lock-actuator-motors.html https://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/mae_yas/1405005.html
  11. Before looking into another transmission I would do a drain and fill of the transmission pan while making sure there are no leaks. Also make sure the fluid level is correct.
  12. I know I'm late but I'm glad you got everything worked out.
  13. Still a few of us around though I upgraded to a 430 then 460L I still have the 98 that stays parked most of the time.
