  1. Thank you. How kind.. Will it need to 'taught' do you think, or work straight off? Ez
  2. Hello folks, can anyone post a picture of the remote and it's part number for the DVD player in the picture? Thanks for any help you can give. I've posted this is the RX400 forum too. Ez
  3. Morning folks, can anyone post a picture of the remote and it's part number for the DVD player in the picture? Thanks in advance. Ez
  4. Newbie questions

    Hello all, I'm the recent owner of a RX400H 2005 with 84k. FDSH to 61k. It's been for it's health check at Lexus, all good apart from needing a radiator. So my question is about where I might find a Lexus inde. I'm in Cumbria but happy to travel a couple of hours? Any ideas? Also, anyone any quick wins with the sat nav? I'm struggling to operate it, even with the instructions!!! Just want to put in the destination and press 'go' 😍 Ive bought an aftermarket DVD for the rear seats and am going to attempt to fit it. I'll let you know how I get on. All the best, and thanks for any help. Ez
  5. Yeah of course, Playstatipn is those three - white, red and yellow ... so if I think of audio visual stuff with that configuration, I can 'show' it I guess. Thanks Lurch. Now. According to the bumf, the Voice can respond to 130 commands - example as please!
  6. Awww thanks Sorcerer. I know a good ICE firm so I'll get them on the job if I struggle. I'm guessing the extra leads are for 'aux' but not too sure what that will look like! I do go to Carlisle for my job, and I live near Ulverston in the south of the County. Look out for RL55NRX and if you see it, that's me! Ez
  7. Thanks Sorcerer, as you say, at £25, worth a punt. I've ordere one. Whilst I don't have kids I do have a mum with dementia. Being able to play some old movies for her will be fantastic, for her and for me😉 The audio visual lead in the back seat 'flap' has been fitted properly, it has a grommet through the back of the seating, but what is it for? It's not for the DVD player, could it be for an auxiliary piece of equipment? And if so, what? I was able to use the buttons on the DVD and swap to auxiliary function, but I'm struggling somewhat to know what this might be... as I said, both monitors work fine, projecting the image, but the image is horizontally line challenged 😳 I have both headphones, one unused. How does one charge them? Or does infrared not need charging? Thanks for any help. ps. I discovered what the extra switch is in the dash under the stereo - after market parking sensors. The unit on the binnacle is a laser and speed camera 'finder'. I think it needs a subscription and I wont be using it. Still not sure what the second toggle switch by the power door switch is, it doesn't seem to be linked to speed camera thing.
  8. Well I've had her a week now and getting used to how smooth a drive it is. I've worked out voice command (I do love this, particularly when she answers incorrectly) but the sat nav remains a mystery apart from setting home! I'll work it out I'm sure. I have a couple of queries. The DVD player is broadcasting through the head rest monitors but flickering. It's like I need to stabilise the horizontal line. It doesn't seem to be badged Lexus so I've included a picture. I haven't checked out the headphones yet and I can't find a remote so maybe I couldn't play the DVD anyway. There is also an audio/visual plug, picture included; I'm no techie so any help appreciated. If the DVD is not fixable can I get one from a scrapper? Thanks Ez
  9. Alas the Monte Carlo yellow is LPT (Light Pressure Turbo), pretty mint and pretty slow (135bhp). I also have the Saab 900T16 Aero... Abbott tuned, new roof, fast and furious. Love it, but far from mint 😉 Second long trip trip in the Lexus, up to 31.6 mpg. Not bad. Need to work out how to transfer my phone book via Bluetooth to the Hands free AND get my head around the sat nav. Ez
  10. It was my first long trip today! Up and down dale and a 100 miles on the motorway - managed 31 mpg. Steady for the most part with the odd overtake or three Some pics. The 'conk' is there courtesy of my brother in law who sent it the same day I got the car... Ez
  11. I found this and it helped me understand the vehicle better. I think it may be useful for other potential purchasers. http://media.lexus.co.uk/wp-content/files_mf/1323777880THENEWLEXUSRX400h.pdf
  12. Thank you! picking up at 2. Nervous and excited all at the same time. Any Classic Saab fans out there? Here's the Lexus' stable mate 😍 Ez
  13. Here it is. I will post more pics later this weekend. I've paid over the book price in return for pump, belt, service, warranty and refurbed wheels. Now, can someone tell me how to start her when I pick her up today? The dealer (not Lexus) didn't seem to know, and apart from literally turning the key to what seemed like a 'start', waiting 20 seconds, turning key again, and although no sound, assuming it's running, I'm not sure what I did on my test drives, all I know is she went! Please be specific 😀 i.e turn the key once so that warning lights illuminate.... etc.
  14. Thank you for the replies, most illuminating. I've attached a picture of the car. I pick the car up tomorrow and will use it for a couple of weeks until the mechanic returns and the belt and pump get done. Interestingly, there is a small screen, I now think is a solar panel, extreme right on the drivers side binnacle. There are 2 after market switches, one below the stereo with an LED, next to the heated seat switches, and a rocker switch not far from the bonnet pull. I have a fancy, one, or both of these activates the solar panel trickle charge. Anyone have a similar set up i.e. NOT through a revised cigarette lighter? Thanks again, Ez
  15. Hello forum, after several months of watching and trying to learn about these hybrids, I have finally bought one 😍 I've bought a 2005 RX400H 81k, Lexus dealer history to 2014 and not sure after that because the service book is at the dealer exchange not the motor trader I bought it off. Trader is doing the cambelt and water pump, oils and filters, new MOT. I pick the car up on Friday; telling a good friend about my purchase, I was regaled with the horrors of the 'flat battery in the airport after a holiday' scenario and have resolved to have a battery check (hopefully it will be ok!) but what will this cost at a dealer? And, are there any tips to avoid such a dilemma (I had read about this on a forum but didn't consider it an essential check before purchase - perhaps, more fool me), Thoughts appreciated, Ez
