The ear-splitting factory alarm on my 1998 LS400 has been going off inappropriately for a few months now. This usually happen just as I lock it, but not exclusively, or when I switch the engine off. It does not immobilise the vehicle (can be driven with the alarm still sounding) and can only be stopped by unplugging the Battery. So far I have dialled down the proximity sensor underneath the centre armrest and changed the batteries in the fobs.
Since the alarm doesn't have any noticeable effect other than deafening me, my next move will probably be to find the siren and unplug it. I don't think the vehicle Battery is the problem as it's relatively new and doesn't have any issues.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Calling all Lexus LS Owners!
I've been tasked with helping organise the launch of the new LS500 at our Dealership, which is expected to hit showrooms at some point in January.
Having seen and driven it in Milan, it's a beautiful, beautiful thing. You will love it.
Without giving too much away, I'm looking for a couple of owners of ideally a gen 1 and gen 3 LS.
They'd need to be in "good to great" condition (I appreciate they will potentially have up to 30 years use).
I'd need to borrow them for a night, maybe even a couple of days - but would organise something to repay the favour.
Please drop me an email if you think you could help:
Just bought my Lexus about a week and a half ago and love it! BUT I came out to my car today and for some reason now the driver door and passenger door I the front do not unlock when I put my hand on the sensor of the for handle. They will also not lock the car when I press the lock button on the door handle. The lock button inside the car will not work on either side as well. Both the back doors work absolutely fine, the sensors work for everything back there. The smart key also works to turn on my Lexus. Has anyone else had this problem?
