  1. Hi Can anyone help? I have a 2006 IS250 and had no problems with the car during its first five years. After that period of time i noticed that I had a condensation problem on occasions and noticed that the rear passenger carpet and mat was damp. Thinking that I had left the window open or something similar, I dried it out and thought nothing more of it. It happens a few more times and I took it to the dealer who tested the car for leaks. None was found. With me being retired and trying to save as much possible, I have had the air conditions switched off as i only take short journeys in the car. I have not had a problem regarding this for about three to four years. Went on holiday with the car and have been doing some high mileage over the two weeks. Had the air conditioning on due to the outside temperature being 25 degree. Came back from holiday and noticed the windows steaming up that evening. Next day I went to clean out the car and was vacuuming the rear area when i felt the rear carpet and it is soaked. Looked in my cleaner (which is now probably broken as water was inside the motor). I took out the mats and water was dripping from them. The two rear carpets are full of water. We had no rain at all whilst on holiday. The only difference has been the higher mileage and the air conditioning being on !!! Has anyone else had this problem and know how to cure it? Is it a design fault? Thank you.

    Thought I may share a recent experience. I was asked recently via another forum about a code that I had not had much experience off P0AA6 & with techstream i found sub codes 526 & 612 I think from memory - I was aware they were to do with an HV (High Voltage) Isolation Error (to explain:- the HV electrical system is isolated or if you like - mechanically & electrically separated from the normal 12v electrical system & the body of the car for obvious safety reasons - this is why all HV cabling is orange too, to clearly identify the hazard ) From experience & a bit of lateral thinking & in the absence of any other possibilities like the car had been recently worked on or something my thoughts were "Water" Yes you heard me right Water:- I have personally witnessed & repaired hundreds of electrical nasties caused by water. Given that Doris had not long passed this sparked (excuse the pun) my attention. Anyway to cut a long story short (well 1& half hrs) I located a spot underneath the car that looked "grazed" it was conspicuous because it was very clearly orange plastic when everything else around was covered in road muck, further chatting revealed that "its been doing it (throwing CHECK HYBRID SYSTEM) for a few days now but I just clear it down with my scanner mate & it seem ok after that its weird" - "oh yeah & it don't seem to happen when its just sat in park!" mmmmmm I say scratching me chin - thats because that section is not energised until its in drive or reverse - anyway a quick clean with wd40 then a wash with solvent reveals a black tracking mark where HV electricity has been leaking (or tracking in the trade) to the chassis causing the CHECK HYBRID SYSTEM error, a bit of scraping some hot melt glue, wd40 & a bit of orange flexible conduit i had lying around, a spread of hot soldering iron & bingo Job done - no problem even after a good direct blast with hose pipe (don't do that at home folks!) The chap was about to buy a whole new gearbox!!!! So don't automatically assume the worst
  3. I have been trying to trace a source of water collecting in the boot (trunk) of the car. I noticed water running down the inside of the trim near the tailgate hinge. (see photo) Anyone have any ideas how it is getting in there and how to address it?
  4. Hi after the car standing for 10 days ,in June! I used it & it slightly overheated. When cooled I checked & coolant/water tank empty I re filled no overheating & no problems. However 2 weeks later I checked again & tank was again empty, refilled again checked couple of days later again empty?! There has been no more overheating, fan comes on , no visible water marks under car, around engine etc. so can somebody please tell me where my water is going. No blue smoke from exhaust, oil is fine! 2004 lexus is200
  5. First post, so sorry if anything isn't quite right! Have an '06' GS300. Recently noticed mat in left rear footwell was wet. Mechanic put on ramp and checked underneath - no obvious problems. Removed mat, lifted carpet and insulation underneath was also saturated. Mechanic put it down to leaving window open in rain (usually check all windows before leaving car). Have been trying to dry it out but have now found front left footwell is exactly the same - wet car mat, soaking wet carpet and suspect insulation will be the same. No sunroof, so can't be leaking from there. Right hand side is dry front and rear. Does anyone have any ideas, please? I'm not mechanically minded but my husband is, so be as technical as you like! Many thanks.
  6. Hi all.. so had an interesting experience this weekend. Transpires part of a route near where I've moved to has a ford. Naturally, there is a longer way around but given the nature of a 4*4 it's a bit daft not to explore the "off-road" capabilities of my RX350. Question is.. what is a safe water height to be attempting? When I passed through at the weekend, it was relatively low at about 30cm so had no problem.. but the watermarks on the indicators suggest it could get up to around 60 or 70 cm - I'm not so sure I'd want to attempt that! Anybody got some experience?
