A little back story first. My '06 GS450h first displayed the Check Hybrid System lights along with the P0A80 fault around six months ago. I replaced a faulty module in the hybrid battery pack which resolved the issue.
Today while driving I heard a chime, and looked down to see the dreaded return of the Check Hybrid System lights. Interestingly, I've noticed that the hybrid battery appears to be charging and discharging as per normal. The car drives fine and I've probably driven the car for about 100kms since the light appeared.
I hooked up my OBD2 scanner to retrieve any fault codes, which returned the below:
U0293 - Lost Communication with HV ECU
P0a7f - Hybrid Battery Pack Deterioration
U0100 - Lost Communication With Engine Control Module
Has anybody here seen the above codes appearing together or have any idea where to begin in trying to rectify the issue? Sadly starting to think the time has come to finally get rid of the old girl - however would like to clear this issue so I can get a decent trade on it.
Hi Everyone, I've just signed up as I'm on the hunt for a GS. Hopefully you knowledgeable lot can steer me to make the right choice ;)
I've a hankering for a comfortable V6 that's reliable.
I'm still trawling the tinterweb, absorbing model info, specs and seeing what cars are available.
I've yet to compare boot sizes between the 300 and 450H but don't think the smaller boot will be a stumbling block. The hybrid power and economy is very tempting.
I'll be checking insurance quotes tomorrow, so wish me luck!
As I occasionally travel with bikes I wondered if anyone has fitted a towbar? Or maybe roof racks the norm?
Spec isn't a big concern as they come with plenty of toys anyway.
I've seen a few 08 models around with
Dealers don't appear to have many older cars listed, is this normal? Surely they get trade in's as folks upgrade, so where do the cars go?
I've just read thru a few vehicle MOT histories and shocks appear to be a common fault. Pricey too by the look of it. I wondered if lots of faults over the years might be a better long term option, as parts had been replaced? Or maybe they haven't been cared for as much and faults only crop up come MOT time? Any thoughts?
If you know any decent cars for sale in the Midlands, then let me know.
Wanted to say hi, as just got a GS450h yesterday, 2006 year, but in fairly good nick despite fairly leggy mileage of 144k. It's my first Lexus, so fingers crossed.
Only drive it home, but already like it. Hopefully I'll soon come to love it.
Any how's, off to read the manuals and sure will be back with plenty of questions for you gurus, first likely being the blooming TPMS 'check system' error, that red exclamation and flashing flat tyre symbol already getting on my nerves. But I'll have a search before asking away
Cheers all, Upex
Hi - newie here, recently purchased a lovely GS450h. Trying to fit a Bluetooth adapter kit and having a problem. Looked on forum, but couldn't find solution.
I purchased this unit to play Bluetooth. Although I am not bothered by CD changer (don't have CDs) or SatNav (I use google maps) I also got a Y splitter as well, https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01FEXOFL2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I looked at all the install videos, seemed straightforward, I took the unit out, plugged in the adapter and ... nothing. No power to Bluetooth, Sat Nav stopped working, as did most of the audio functions. Using splitter or plugging straight in gave same results
It seemed odd to me that the 6+6 adapter in my unit only had 2 wires, all the install videos I saw had more. Am I missing something?
any help gratefully appreciated
Before adding adapter, 2 wires only into the 6+6 plug (and after connecting splitter)
