  1. Dash Cam

    Am I correct in thinking the 12v battery powers all the accessories and the hybrid battery starts the engine?
  2. Dash Cam

    Just had Black View front and rear cameras fitted. It came with a power save modual so it records while the car is parked. the unit has several settings and is set at the moment to shut down completely after 12hours or 12v on the battery. lexus dealer not willing to comment on the voltage setting, anybody on here got any experience on the subject.
  3. fuel filler cap cover

    You could always try this.
  4. Try milk, it worked on my leather suite. Just put a little on a cloth dab it on and rub.
  5. In the title you say the battery seems ok, do you mean the fob battery? As the most likely cause is the battery in the fob. Plenty of UTube videos on how to change it.
  6. IS 300 H

    2 years old end of next month, fuel trip never reset so that's over the 9430. Maybe 5 or 6 Bristol to Swindon runs otherwise all town short journey journeys. I had several of the previous V6 models and while that is a beutifull engine the hybrid halved my fuel bill although I would have to keep it until I am 100 to see those savings. Just doing my little bit for the planet.
  7. Real World Fuel Economy

    I am on my second IS300h, had this one since May 2105. Never reset the fuel trip and now coming up to 10,000 miles in mostly town or short journeys mine is averaging 47.3mpg. No motorways, no long journeys. Forget all the talk of 50+ that's one off journeys or a short periods of time..
  8. Sorry Mark (200h) On holiday in Barbados, had a few drinks yesterday afternoon and my brain was not in control of my typing finger.
  9. Always found it no problem when I was younger and fitter, in fact our first daughter was conceived on the back seat of my Corsair. Given my age now do not think I will ever get around to trying my IS. !!! Have I understood the question correctly.
  10. Sat Nav

    Found it. It was "Route Trace" now turned off, must have got turned on by mistake. Many thanks to all.
  11. Sat Nav

    These a very small red circles with a white border. Loads of them on major roads. Will get the Lexus encyclopaedia out and try and find some reference to them.
  12. Sat Nav

    A question from a non technical owner. I very rarely use the sat nav but have been leaving it on when out and about recently. What are all the red circles on certain roads. Thought it may indicate heavy traffic but in reality the traffic is light.
  13. No first aid kit or warning triangle in any of my IS's, that's a BMW feature? The straps to the right side of the boot hold my ex BMW first aid kit, logo and all.
  14. Your Lexus Dealer Experience

    Have used Lexus Bristol for almost 10 years and 5 new cars and have no negative words to say about them. Always excellent service.
  15. Looked at one on Wednesday. It's a CT size crossover or a small NX. Really nice, just needs a bit of Lexus magic dust on it change the badges and add moaning noisy rear brakes. Top of the range is a 1.8 Auto Hybrid.
