  1. After searching the forum and coming up empty, I thought I'd just post a specific question. Apologies in advance if the question has already been asked and answered. My 2004 L430 has about 60K and I'm unsure whether I should get the transmission fluid/filter changed. The manual suggests doing it only if the car was used for towing (which it hasn't). I thought I had read somewhere that this particular transmission used synthetic oil and didn't require periodic service - "The transmission is sealed (no dipstick) and fluids aren’t supposed to be touched until after 100k miles." Does anyone kno
  2. That sounds like a TSB number to me (TC006-04). Thanks! I haven't received a letter about the Navigation fix yet, but when I do, I'll be sure to mention this TSIB to them as well! ← Well - it's been a while. Anyone else get the TSB for the shift lag? Is it still working ok for those who've had it installed? Stuart.
  3. put the key in the off position , hit the trip/odemeter button until it reads odometer then hold in, turn car on and you should see /// in the odometer . let go and your done ← Note that you have to set the trip/odometer to the "BLANK" display. Be sure you only turn the Ignition switch back to "ON" and not "START". If you restart the car, the service reminder light will NOT reset! ← This doesn't work for me(2004 LS430 w/NAV). If I turn off ignition, I can't see odometer. So do I push while in ON position, then OFF and back ON(all while holding TRIP) or some other magic

  6. Ok, so far we only have results from one owner. Anyone else? Can you please provide the TSB number? Regards...
  7. Well, I've got a 2004 LS and haven't received any letter about a DVD upgrade. Mine is V3.1 also. Does the letter indicate why they are updating it?
  8. Not yet (as far as I've been told).
  9. ← Nope...sorry. All they told me was that "they were working on one".
  10. Whoa... wait a second. The existing DVD's are for pre-2004 Navigation systems only. As far as I've been told, there aren't any updates yet available for 2004 or later Nav-equipped vehicles. And yes, if and when one becomes available, it should only require inserting a new DVD. Keep in mind not all Lexus owners have the skills to locate the DVD player (in the trunk, etc), unscrew the mounting screws, tilt the player up, unlock and eject the existing DVD, insert the updated DVD, watch the LCD screen for instructions, replace the screws and trunk mats, etc. I own a 2004 LS and haven't gotten any
  11. I wondered that as well. I'm going to call my dealer (again) and let him know that the second 4.1 DVD he sent me failed to load on a NAV system running 3.1 ← Just got off the phone with the local Lexus dealer who has researched the NAV update issue. Your supposition was correct, BTW. The current 4.1 DVD update is only for the generation III Nav systems (pre-2004 vehicles I think). There isn't an update for the generation IV Nav systems as of yet, although they are working on one. Most of the update information in the 4.1 DVD is already present in the gen. IV Nav systems. According t
  12. Let us know if you get it to load. I've tried two copies of the 4.1 DVD in my 04 LS430 and neither would load! What is the version you currently have installed in your RX?

  14. I apparently ordered the update just as they were posting it to their site. Right after I ordered it the price went up to 288.00 (which was the price of the previous version). As far as changing the disc goes, I noticed that on the 04 LS, the NAV DVD player is under a cover on the right side of the trunk. It appears you have to remove two screws that hold the unit in place so you can raise it enough so the DVD tray will clear the edge of the compartment when it ejects. Anyone else perform this apparently simple operation on an 04 yet? ← Do you know if the navigation system can read
  15. I got mine last week and it wouldn't load. The screen reported that it couldn't read the DVD. Have you had similar results?
