No sound - amplifier gone?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Last night when I was driving my radio went silent. Volume button is not doing anything, checked CD, Bluetooth navi but still no sound... checked fuses - all good.

I believe my amplifier is gone.

Now I've tried to locate but no luck.

I'ts non ML system - I think Pioneer one with premium nav.

Can someone please point where it is hidden? Is it in the boot? Can someone please mark on the picture exactly where it is located?

Many thanks

I do not think the Pioneer system has a separate amp "I could be wrong so no doubt someone will correct me if I am" I think it's all in the head unit.

the amp should be under the panels in the rear drivers quarter

If you car does have a separate amp and it is at fault (bit premature if that) I used a company called SVT services in Edinburgh to repair mine from my 04 plate LS430

Thanks 200h I've found it.

Managed to take it out, opened the metal box and there was one screw loose and probably that was the reason why amp stopped working.

Tried to google part number to buy new/used one but no luck - based in UK.

Is there any one here who is fixing amps? How much lexus would take for inspecting/replacing amp?

Thanks

try this company

https://www.car-transplants.co.uk/parts-breaking/details/lexus-is-hybrid-2013-to-2016-transmission-assembly/1/53069

the car in the picture has the premium nav / audio fitted

look at picture number 6 to check the controller you have

if this isn't the type you have then they do have cars with the standard nav in stock

How would you actually remove the panel to access the amplifier? Having a little trouble here
