Toyota Harrier (Lexus RX300) 1999. The dash is in Japanese - would like it in English but can live with it. Two main issues: 1. I can't find how to adjust the clock to the correct time 2. The anti-theft device seems to take random amounts of time before it lets me start the car, anything from 0 to 20mins!! Any help much appreciated

My daughter wants to buy a 2000 es300 Lexus with 175,000 miles on it we are not sure if thats to many miles for a lexus, she doesn't want to give them 5,000 dollars for a car with those many miles if its not a good deal. The car looks real clean and it sounds good, she is driving a 200 Hyundai Sonata with 113,000 miles on it and the transmission is dragging, so you see why she is not sure about this Lexus she doesn't want to jump into the frying pan with buying another car with alot more miles o


5000$ for an 11yr old car with 175,000 miles is a lot of money, even for a lexus, this mileage is where you have to start expecting some fairly major problems, i would say 3500 - 3600$ is a fair price for this car regardless of how nice it looks, if ... Lexus ES 300

High RPMs I have a 2001 Lexus RX300 and recently the car won't shift into overdrive. I am running at over 3500 RPM at 40 MPH. When I turn my car off and restart sometimes this will stop the problem. When the car seems to be running normally I'm at 2750 RPM @ 70 miles an hour. Is this normal or is this still too high to be running the car at. All of this started when I was coming off a long trip and my check engine light came on. I took it to a Lexus dealership and the code read knock sensor but


Yes its related to knock sensor because car is running rich in fuel, and car runs of on safe mode, so overdrive will be off. have you and a friend replace it. remove intake assembly, then intake manifold, but first remove your anifreeze from radiator ... 2001 Lexus RX 300

My 2003 nissan sentra has trouble starting. It usually starts and dosen't die by the second or third try. The speedometer will jump from 0 to 1 or 0 to 2 when I am driving and then cut off. Or sometimes the speedometer will jump up and down as the car jerks. When I press on the gas my car makes a coughing sound. I am afraid my car is on the verge of breaking. What do I do?

96 Lexus ES300 When you depress the brake pedal, the car "slides" to a stop. It feels like the ABS is kicking in when there is no need. It happens always when turning right into a parking space, but recently the car almost did not stop at an intersection. We have already replaced both front sensors and one drive axle. The Toyota dealer where we purchased the car used in 2000, suggested we take it to the experts at Lexus.The Lexus service person on the phone said they could "try" to diagnose and


Hi thereFew things: When you say it 'slides' to a stop. Do you mean the pedal sinks to the floor with the same pressure as you first applied? If so, the master cylinder needs an overhaul or a replacement, as the seal around the plunger/pi ... 1996 Lexus ES 300

I have a lexus rx350 2011. Had dealer install remote start. Battery is dead after car sits for 7 days. Happened twice. Dealer says there is no problem. Had it to Lexus repair twice. It always starts for them, they say. Originally was told to get a car trickler. Was also told I don't drive it enough to allow alternator to charge battery. Had two lexus vehicles before this one and no problems. any ideas would be greatly appriciated.

We have a 2004 RX 330 Lexus with just 24,000 miles and we are the origional owners. Our dashboared has cracks all over it. We have used only Lexus products on our car.We do not understand how this could be happening to a $40,000 dollar car. We have been told by the dealership that it will cost US money to have it replaced.Please tell us this cannot be true ! We find it hard to believe that Lexus would charge a customer that already paid $40,000 dollars for their car, more money to fix something


Don't park it in direct sunlight. the sunlight does not know how much the car cost and will cause the dash to dry crack and split on a 400 dollar falcon too. you have to go whole hog and spend over 100,000 if you want a non cracking dashb ... 2004 Lexus RX 330

I have a 1993 LEXUS 400 LS. The car has two recurrent problems : 1) the instrument cluster goes on and off and then totally off after about 15 minutes. On hot days it may not illuminate from the start. This problem was "fixed" once by Lexus of Kendall - the circuit board was replaced. Within 10,000 miles of use the problem recurred and Lexus would not agree to take responsibility and required me to pay anew to take care of the problem. I took the car somewhere else and paid $2,000 plus. The pr

The dealer is not necessarily a rip off, just somewhat more costly than an independant shop. The cause of this issue is what is going to be costly. White smoke is coolant and something either cracked (very expensive, warped (more cost friendly), of d ... 2001 Lexus RX 300

As I am driving all of the car's gauges pop off and on intermittenly. The speedometer bounces the gas gauge goes from full to empty. The caution lights flicker. At times while driving the car ignition kills. When I initially turn the car on the speedometer gauge goes from 0 to 120 and then back to 0. Sometimes the Low Oil light comes on when I know the levels are where they should be. About 5 months ago I purchase another battery hoping that this would fix the problem Even though Autozone

I can jump start my car, but it only runs when i have my foot on the gas. It will run as long as my foot is on the gas, but as soon as I release the gas, the RPM drops to 0 and the engine shuts off and the battery meter slowly goes from 14 V to 0 V. Im trying to figure out if it is the battery, the alternator, or the voltage regulator. (it could be something else but my limited knowledge of cars gets me thinking it is one of these) any help is appreciated, what is wrong?


First thing I'd do there is charge the battery using a battery charger, then have it load tested. Nothing else in the system can be properly tested if the battery will not pass that test. Once that has been done and if the battery is bad, you have r ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a problem filling my 2003 Ford focus gas tank. The pump keeps shutting off and I can only fill a little at a time. I had the car checked at STS Auto center in Island Park NY and the mechanic replaced the part (pro x x f 8 5 z 5 0 0 CA) Canister vent $ 159.95 and the problem still exists. I paid $ 222.00 for this repair that did not work. When I returned to the repair shop the mechanic put the car back on the lift and could not see anything wrong. He blew air in the tank and suggested

Lexus 2001 ES300 transmission or sensor troubles? On a drive out of town, my car kept losing acceleration but the RPMs were off the chart, even while in park. I had it towed to the Lexus dealer in that town. The dealer says he ran a diagnostic and concluded, "internal parts in the transmission are giving out." Though they didn't specify which parts and they'd only replace the entire transmission. A rebuilt will be $4,400 (approx. blue book value of the car). Another shop says since I've had


I have read about a transmission control module and a shifting valve that cause erratic transmission problems. There may even be a recall. Check with a LEXUS dealer, not the shop that is trying to rip you off. I bet the tranny would be worse after th ... 2001 Lexus ES 300
