The starter is located in the block. You need to take the intake manifold off to get to it
What is the mostly cause of your 1992 Lexus LS400 showing a track off and check engine lights on dash?
I have heard a few different things mentioned. Check on lexusownersclub and post it in the LS400/430 catagory. A very good specialty site. vbd
How do you replace the headlight bulb on a 1997 Lexus LS400 and can I just replace the bulb or do I have to replace the whole thing?
Yes you can just replace the headlight bulbs. First you have to take out the cover by the battery. Then unscrew the cover by the radiator and simply lift it up to take it off. The light bulbs are visible at this time.
Check the timing belt to see its off.. If the timing is correct them most likely you have a failed camshaft sensor..
If you do not have it written down in the owner's manual, you need to contact a LEXUS DEALER. You will more than likely need the serial# off the radio. That will require removing the radio. Check with Lexus to b sure.
This is a common issue with Lexus, mainly with the older LS400's. Basically, the instrument cluster needs to be replaced, this can only be done through Lexus. A new cluster to be installed including labor will run anywhere from $750 - $1000. If you can find an instrument cluster at a salvage yard, Lexus will send it off to match the mileage from the original cluster, then install it for 2 - 3 hours of… Read More
The timing is computer controlled, there is no adjustments. I know this is a little late, but timing could be off because the timing belt is not properly aligned. If the timing belt is installed incorrectly the timing will never be right.
An 'off load' tap changer is one that can only be operated when the transformer is disconnected.
Take off camshaft seal bolts
* on-load tap changer * off-load tap changer
If you change the taps you will set the desired voltage like 415v, 440v. but for off load you have to take a total electrical shut down. Voltage control for transmission & distribution is obtained by tap changing. This can be done at various levels. occasional adjustment of voltage ratio is done by off load tap changer. Daily & short time voltage control is not possible by off load tap changer. Daily voltage variation due… Read More
The subwoofer/high tail stop lamp are one unit. The cover will pop off the rear deck with some gentle perusasion from a screwdriver or similar. They are very tightly held though so expect it 'POP' off as the clips come away. Hope this helps Muzz
With proper maintenance how long can an automatic transmission be expected to last in a new Lexus or Mercedes Benz?
The 4-speed automatic transmission in my 1990 Lexus LS400 developed problems at ~220K miles, and the 5-speed automatic in my 1999 Lexus LS400 got sick at ~160K miles (although both were still driveable). Each cost around $3000 to rebuild (at a transmission shop... Lexus service doesn't rebuild anything). Same driver, same driving conditions (in Houston, mostly stop-and-go), same maintenance schedule (fluid change approx every 50K). So I suppose it's a roll of the dice what… Read More
Tap changer is a device that is used to change the secondary voltage on transformers. It is normally on the HV winding of the transformer. Off load tap changer is designed to change the taps only when the transformer is not charged, while on load tap changer is capable of changing the tap on load too.
You can buy clothes & colors at the Gift Shop in the Penguin Style catalog, then click your penguin & click a little tab on the side of your player card & you should find the clothing changer. If you want to take something off, click the item on your penguin in the player card.
take the negative on the battery off for about 10 min. this will reset the computer. if it does not go off just take it to your nearest advance auto or auto shop and have them run a diag. on it.
Where is the fuel cut off switch located in a 2003 Lexus es300
On 92 Lexus ls400 od-off light flashes after 10 min of driving and car won't go into overdrive then when engine reaches operating temp I switch engine off for 20 seconds and all is okay whats suspect?
Bad transmission solenoid. There are 3 total on first gen ls400. I got a code for solenoid #1 myself and need to fix it.Most Stealers will sell u a new tranny, so you need to get all 3 solenoids and have tranny pulled then replace 'em. voila. back in business and don't have to worry about the other 2. do em all at the same time.
No. All a tap changer (whether 'off-load' or 'on-load') does is to make minor changes to the turns-ratio of a transformer.
Often it's an alternator diode. Check the battery first. When batteries start to go bad they can often start to discharge over a couple hours. Take it to an auto parts retailer and have them test the battery and alternator for you. I had the same problem with my '92 Windom (ES 300). It was a faulty trunk mounted CD changer that was draining the battery.
I have a 1998 Lexus GS300 so I am assuming the process will be similar. I recently changed my cabin air filter due to musty smells in the cabin interior. You gain access to the filter through the glove compartment. Under the section where the CD changer is, there should be a plastic piece towards the back of the glove box where it looks like it connects to the car. This piece should slide off… Read More
On my 95 LS400 left low beam it was necessary to first remove a circular plastic cover. Just depress a tab and it will come off. Next the electrical connector is encased in a rubber sleeve-gently pull the sleeve back from the connector and disconnect the connector from the light . The old light is held in place by a spring under tension --- release the tension on the spring by lifting it from a… Read More
It means your Traction Control system which controls your rear wheel spin is off. If you did not turn it off it means that there is a malfunction with the system. I'd recommend you take it in to get it looked at and repaired.
The CD changer is located in the trunk on the drivers side next to the switch to turn off the air ride suspension.
Does a 1999 Lexus ES 300 need to go to the shop for a trac off flashing on dash or is just sensor light?
I had the same issue so I took it to Lexus for repairs. It seems that light comes on everytime there is a fuel issue rather than a traction issue. You could take it to an Advance Auto and have them pull the code from the computer and it will tell you the problem before you take it to Lexus or your favorite automotive shop. I believe the image they should be using instead of… Read More
One way to get a disc unstuck from a 6 disc changer is to try to hit eject while the car is off. This sometimes forces the disc to eject.
Take off the wood plates and pop the radio out and get a screwdriver and put it in the hole of the cd and lift it out . Haha I'm 16 and I got pissed when I couldn't get it
if its like my 300, you have to get under the front of the car and and either take them off or they pull out from the back !
i know my Lexus turns off sometimes when i drive cuz my battery terminals r loose so it shuts off the car
probably have to have a Lexus dealer turn it off
You are going to need to take the whole mount out just to get the pressed in bushing out of the mount. ounce the whole mount is off of the car you will need to use a press to get the bushing out. Lexus will sell you the whole mount with bushing installed for about $134.00. LEXUS PART # 12380.
The starter is located just behind the V-8 engine and on the top side behind the firewall. This is a time consuming job if you want to do it yourself -- that's what other 92' LS 400 owner told me, He told me he had to take down the transmission in order to access the bolts of the starter !!! In order to separate the transmission, you have to take off the drive shaft as… Read More
You need the code. The code is specific to your radio, and no one can tell you that specific code. Do not try any codes until you have the correct one or you will lock the radio. Look long and hard throughout your owner's manual and all other manuals you have with the car. If you cannot find the code then contact the dealer that sold the car originally. They may have the code stored… Read More
Top left hand corner. Take off the plastic cover and release the silver metal clips.
After you take the cover off the engine there are three square electrical looking things and when you unscrew all those and take them out the spark plugs lie beneth there.
How do you change the thermostat in a 1992 Lexus es300 and is like changing most thermostats in most cars?
On my 1993 Lexus ES300, the thermostat was down on the side of the engine near /in the water pump. You'll need to take off the passenger side front wheel, and the wheel well protective lining... Even then it is most obnoxious to get in there. You'll also (obviously) have to take off at least one belt, which means loosening the alternator (possibly), and the belt tensioner bolt. On my 1993 Lexus ES300, the thermostat… Read More
An on-load tap-changer must not break the supply to the transformer's windings while the transformer is on load. So it has a 'make-before-break' arrangement with its contacts -i.e. one contact moves to the second tap setting, before the second contact moves away from the first tap setting, while a reactor balances the load currents when the contacts are on different tap settings. An on-load tap changer is motor-driven, and can be operated automatically or manually… Read More
I would not try to open up the changer mechanism or otherwise tamper with the physical box. Instead, making sure the key is not in the ignition, remove the changer box from the trunk and detach the connecting wires (there is a simple multi-wire nylon connector.) Then close the trunk and get in the car and start the car. If the radio is not off turn it off and then restart the car. Turn the… Read More
What would cause the check engine and track off light to flash periodically with loss of power and sometimes stalling hot or cold on a 93 Lexus LS400?
frist off need to make sure all 3 cats are clean and free flowing next thing is a complete tune-up(could be misfire codes causing check engine light to flash last fuel pressure regulator; pull vak line off regulator if fuel comes out of vac line regulator is bad hope this helps
What can you do about a 6 disc CD changer in an 03 Eddie Bauer Expedition that won't load shows full but doesn't eject?
I have found that a lot of burnt cd's are a hair bigger in diameter and get jammed in the Ford 6 disc changer... Just remove the stereo take the cover off manually remove the disc on top then plug it back in and it should eject all the other ones unless there are more that are stuck...
What is the difference bet manual off Tap changer and auto tap changer in Distribution Transformers?
automatic tap changing transformers can change their tap setting on their own, manual tap means a person has to manually go out and change the tap setting
How do you get the console off and fix a CD changer where the magazine that holds the CDs is stuck on a 1998 Lincoln Continental?
I answered my own question. I started unscrewing things to get the CD changer out of the console. Once it was free I took the outside case off of the CD changer so I could see the guts. I manually moved things around when I noticed there was a penny in the bottom of the changer. I removed the penny, pressed the re;ease button and the magazine popped up. Now, I could still hear my… Read More

open the glove compartment ,you see a cover,take that off you see the cabin filter,then pull the cabin filter towards you. vice versa instaling it
I have a 93 with the same problem. It has 126k miles which should be nothing on a Lexus. I am going down the path of valve guide seals with mine. I'm pretty sure I'm right, but I will consult with a more experienced mechanic before I proceed with repairs. What happens is that the oil sits in the valve train area after the vehicle is turned off. It then leaks past the bad seals… Read More
Vehicle Stability Control "off" light indicating that it is turned off.
A tap changer is used to vary the turns ration between the windings of a transformer to make minor changes to the secondary voltage. An on-load tap changer enables the turns ratio to be altered without disconnecting the transformer. An off-load tap changer requires the transformer to be temporarily diconnected. On-load tap changers are installed on the high-voltage side of the transformer, where the current is lower.
Car alarm in Lexus ES300 started going off at random when car was parked, not running. I changed the key fob battery (flat watch battery) with a new battery and it fixed the problem.
I don't know about 95, but on the 94, you have to take out the whole light assembly from the front. Take off the cover inside the hood from the top, expose the headlight bolts, remove the headlight. Good lucK!
