  1. Remapped my IS220D SE-L 2 years ago

    Hi guys, Thought I should join to share my IS220d experience. I had issues blanking my EGR few years ago as it would throw up all sorts of errors. tried cleaning but only eliminated issues temporarily. I found a company willing to do a remap. He managed to delete DPF and EGR. I then blanked the EGR with a plate and got the DPF gutted by a professional welder (mechanic) within a week of map. The car was at 120k mileage when mapped. it is now at 162k pulling strong on all gears. the economy, torque and response was an still is really noticeable. I manage 38>mpg on minor boost and 31-36mpg having fun with it. These figures vary dependent on weather and road conditions hence the large variations. To summarise, 1. hydrocarbon engine flush. (I just did it for the sake of it) 2. remap (delete EGR and DPF from ECU) 3. Blank EGR (blanking plate from ebay) 4. DPF gutted then re-welded professionally (from my mechanic) Hope this helps,
  2. Is220 wheel advice

    Hi, i own an is220d, and need some advice. I wanted to change my alloys and was wondering if a set of alloys and tyres from an is250 or is200 wheels would fit my car? I tried looking for a decent set of is220 wheels but they are proving difficult to find . I currently have a set of 17" alloys which need a lot of TLC so was wanting to change then as I dont have time for a refurb. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi all just noticed a connection missing behind the grill by horn ????
  4. Hello everyone.. I am new to this forum. Now I have seriously annoying squeak coming from driver side leather seat near torso area when you sit, on right hand side to be precise. Everytime car goes over bump, it makes squeak, apprently coming from foam. I think other IS220D suffered too but I couldn't find any DIY solution except from going to dealer and get the entire seat replaced which won't happen in my case. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Also how do I clean foggy LCD panel on CD player? Thanks.
  5. If your like me, the best part about owning a Lexus is the nice toys and technology that Lexus offer. I've recently swapped my IS220D SE-L for a IS250 SE, The SE-L was fitted with the illuminated door sills that light up "Lexus" when you open the doors, a really nice feature which should be standard in my opinion. Unfortunately my 250 SE only had the basic plastic sills that look a bit cheap on a Luxury car so i pulled off the plastic ones to find that the cars are fitted as standard with the plug for the illuminated sills, so I thought I could just buy the illuminated sills and plug them in. Unfortunately it turned out that this is not the case, all the cars do indeed have the plug however the plug is only wired in on the Luxury and sports spec models, to get around this problem you need to do some basic home wiring which I will show you now. Please note: I take no responsibility for any damage done to your vehicle while following this guide. For this modification you will need the following: 1-2M of Auto Wire 4x Scotch Locks A Pair of Bull Nose Pliers A Pair of Snips Stanley Knife/Craft knife Step 1: Remove the existing door sills to reveal the wiring loom underneath ( A bit of brute force pulling straight up will remove the sills) Step 2: Using a Stanley Knife or Craft knife, carefully cut away the electrical tape that covers the wires that go into the door sill connector (Be particularly careful not to cut into any wires in the loom). Step 3: Take your Auto Wire and 1 scotch lock and Scotch lock your auto wire and the White wire going into the Door Sill Connector together (Leave the blue wire as it is). Step 4: Remove the interior trim that covers the seat belt tensioner system (to aid this process put the seat in the fully back position and the backrest all the way back, and open the rear door. Again some force will release the clips holding the panel on). Step 5: Locate the wire that connects to the Door switch, it sits on the inside of the pillar behind the switch. (A White Wire on the drivers side and Purple on the Passengers side, shown in the image above). Step 6: Trace your auto wire around the current loom to reach the Door Switch wire behind the seat belt panel. (when doing this ensure that your auto wire cannot rub on the seat belt as it moves back and forth during use). Step 7: Take a Scotch lock and scotch lock the Door Switch wire and auto wire together (Ensure you don't short out the wire on the vehicle's body work while using metal tools. I also wrapped some electrical tape around the scotch lock to ensure nothing metal would contact the bodywork in the future). Step 8: Plug in your illuminated door sills to ensure they are working correctly, when you push the Door switch the Sills should shut off and then light up when the switch is released. (If your Sills don't light up please check to see if you have your interior light switch set to come on when the doors open). Step 9: When you are happy that everything is working correctly, push the interior trim panels back into place. Some pressure on the areas should clip everything back in to place. Finished Product. I hope this guide was helpful, if i've missed anything or you have any questions please post here and I will endeavour to help the best I can.
  6. Hi, What bulb type is used in the front indicator inside the headlamp? Thanks
  7. Hi, I have been trying unsuccessfully past couple of days to replace the right hand side indicator bulb housed inside the headlight. Would appreciate if someone has a step by step guide on how to do this please? I had taken it to a local garage last week and after fiddling it around for 30 mins they too gave up.
  8. Hi all, I have an IS220d, manual gearbox, 2007 model. Recently my door locks started to play up. Here is what happens: I walk up to my car, try to unlock doors by touching drivers handle, I can hear all 4 doors try to unlock, but only the drivers door unlocks. Same thing happens from the keyfob, press unlock and only the drivers door unlocks. To open the passenger door and rear doors, I have to get into the car and flip the relevant lock, which is a major pain when several people want to get in. Once inside, the drivers door has a switch to lock all doors and unlock them. This is playing up too. I press it, and only the drivers door locks/unlocks. Tried the keyfob inside the car, only the drivers door locks/unlocks. I have seen several threads with this issue: And I had a good read through this: I have tried pressing both lock/unlock button on the keyfob for 10 second, and the little LCD on the dash shows that all doors should unlock. But the issue still persists. Does anyone have a definitive answer or some insight on what I can do to fix this. I just want all the doors to open/lock simultaneously. Thanks.
  9. Hi Guys, I have a 07 plate IS220 run around 57k miles, off late I could hear a low grinding sound while shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. It doesnt sound too harsh but is still audible. Also the lever feels very notchy and rubbery and is one of the worst I have seen on a car. Anyone else had a similar problem and any action taken to resolve this? Cheers!
  10. Hello All, Can anyone help. I recently changed the battery in my smart key fob and since doing this I'm finding it difficult to lock the car. The fob itself and the exterior door button don't seem to want to lock it. If I stand there long enough, with enough patience, it will finally lock. The car unlocks and starts with no problem. Is this a case of getting the fob reprogrammed Is this something I could sort myself? Many thanks
  11. To anybody out there thinking of buying a used Lexus is220d I would strongly advise against it. Lexus have admitted that there is a fault with the head gasket and have extended their warranty to 110000 miles. Full credit to Lexus for doing this and all well and good if you are within this mile range before your fault happens but if you are a little over the cut off, forget about having it covered under warranty. Despite it being a known fault, I approached Lexus of Newcastle with my car having done 113000 miles. Despite being a little over the mileage cut off I had no come back. I was given an estimate of £3,500 to have the issue repaired that I would have to pay. I thought that surely since it is a well known fault, it would have been covered. Moral of the story - don't buy a second hand Lexus is220d
  12. http://www.misfuelli...hoppingcart.asp Fits all IS Diesels (IS220D and IS200D) Cost New £50, now £40 Used for 18 months on my car. As new except the rubber dongle holding the cap to the spout has snapped. Includes the plastic installation device which came with it too. Open to offers as it is just sat in the garage doing nothing Petrol in a diesel engine Breakdown organisations put the figure of petrol misfuelling at around 150,000 cars a year, with repair bills totalling hundreds of millions of pounds. Petrol will strip your diesel engine of the lubricant used to keep it ticking over and cause metal components to grate against each other and disintegrate. This runs the risk of damaging the fuel pump and fuel-injection systems, or wrecking an engine completely if used for a significant amount of time. To make matters worse pre-ignition systems start fuel pumps in new diesel models when car doors are unlocked. This cuts out the time it takes for new diesel engines to warm up, but means that diesel engines can be ruined by petrol by simply unlocking doors. The fuel pump and injection systems and filters will likely need to be replaced on new models, while an entire engine could be wrecked beyond repair if it has been run for long enough. Regardless of the extent of the damage, the repair bill could potentially run into thousands of pounds. Avoiding turning the engine over or stopping as soon as possible is vital to prevent more damage to the engine in these circumstances. A fuel-tank drain could be sufficient in such cases to prevent damage. Diesel in a petrol engine Theoretically it should be hard to fill a petrol tank with diesel, as diesel nozzles are too wide to fit into the tank. However using diesel in a petrol engine may destroy the engine´s catalytic converter, necessitating a costly replacement
