My Lexus SC430 parking sensor alarm sounds intermittently while I am driving. (No, I do not tailgate the car in front.)
It has happened several times, all but once when it was raining. On that one occasion, the sun was shining. It happened again today while it was raining, and continued to sound after the rain had stopped, but the road was still wet.
What could be causing this to happen, and how can it be prevented, please?
I have decided to fit an ON-OFF switch, if the problem cannot be solved conventionally.
Hi Forum readers,
I wonder if anyone has come across this problem before? Recently my radio stopped working even though all the visuals were working but when I pressed the sound icon in audio section it could not be adjusted. A couple of days later my battery went flat and the AA came out and checked it and I needed a new battery although the alternator charge tested fine. With the new battery fitted the radio started working again. However, since then every so often the radio loses sound again and if I disconnect and reconnect the battery it starts working. Does anyone have an idea what may be causing this and a possible remedy.
Well I have bought my first Lexus, it is a 1999 IS200 SE Auto.
When I bought it I noticed a knocking sound coming from the engine. Now I know it has high mileage 300,0000 but it is only two owners and runs perfectly.
Since I have had it I have done the following:
Changed the oil with fully synthetic + 1 quart Marvelous Mystery oil, Oil filter, Spark plugs, Air filter & Cabin filter.
Run for 500 miles and changed oil again
Run for 1000 miles and changed oil again + 1 quart Marvelous Mystery Oil and oil filter (oil is Castrol Edge 5w 30)
But the sound is still there so I made a video.
I hope you can help me sort this because this noise is driving me crazy.
I'm currently exploring a few different vehicles with the aim to buy the quietest car in terms of road noise (the noise coming from the tyres on the road).
Based on your experience - and with a focus on road noise as well as overall noise experience inside the car - which would you say is the quietest vehicle? Lexus GS300 (around MY 2007) vs. Mercedes E Class Sedan vs. BMW 5 Series Sedan.
I would appreciate your thoughts! Yes, I will test drive them all, but I'd still be interested in the experience of others.
