Hi Paul,

Welcome to the club mate, you'll find that there is a lot of usefull information that can be learnt from a lot of ppls.

Have you got some piccs to show us your pride & joy. I've had a look at some the motors for sale in E-Bay but always been a bit concern about the amount needed to send to someone you've never seen let alone spoken too.

In ref to the cabin lights, you may find its the door sensors that may be the cause, the are a few places that you can get parts from, just depends on whether you want orginal or pattern parts. You can also go Gold and get alot of these items required at a reduced price as well.

BR

Without trying to sound like we are forcing you to go gold..you will only be able to get most of the parts you want for it direct from lexus as you will find it hard to get copy parts from anywhere.. I.E foglights you will either need to find a scrapped one or get from lexus.. the extra discount via gold will go a long way to saving you money..

ps good luck in changing your plugs from what i see you have to remove most of the top of the engine i.e manafold and bits just to get to them..

enjoy your car

:zee: Thanks for all you help guys will have a good go at changing the spark plugs!! Will have a good look at the horn to see if it disconnected or working. Not sure if the switches are at faults on the light issue as the light does not come on when you open any of the doors also the ignition key illumination light does not come on either thinking it could be wiring or fuse??

Found a website that is breaking various lexus models

http://www.intapart.com/lexus.htm hope it i s of some use?

Yes the rear tyres are big just found out the front ones are diffent in size !!

Will be joining the gold club membership as well think it is well worth it.

Got some pics to post not sure how I can get them onto this forum?

Thanks

go to the site menu at top of page select club gallery and hit go.. then click on the gs section.. you will then see a tab with admin in it go to the dropdown arrow and select upload photos then just go from there ..once uploaded they will be on the last page,..

or when replying or starting a topic you can use the browse tab at the bottom which will get pics from your hardrive although you are limited to file size with that route

Sounds like you have the 10" rear wheel option. If you want them all the same size there would be members here who will swap them for their 8" wheels ;)

There should be a 10A 'Dome' fuse in the engine bay for the courtesy light / iginition switch light.

if you still have trouble with finding stuff like wiring and that just let me know.. i have a manual (proper lexus one) that might cover it

Having had a mooch through the underbonnet region gettin aquainted with the bits, I noticed that the horn for the alarm is a seperate one. It looks like the main car horn is in front of the radiator (two of them). And the alarms horn is by the front passenger side suspension turret.

Well I presume that's what it is anyway!!

:zee:Well guys I have scoured high and low all over the engine compartment and i cannot find anything that resembles another horn apart from the ones in the front.

Looked through my owners manual the system is a TVSS 3 B SYSTEM it says that a siren will sound and hazard lights flash when alarm is activated!

But still cannot find a siren either aghhhhhhhhhhhh. This is driving me nuts please somebody put me out of my misery

Cheers

Is your bonnet linked to the alarm? if so dont close it all the way,activate alarm wait for about 30 secs then open bonnet the alarm will sound then you will be able to locate everything you want..........dont do it early morning though as this action will upset the neighbours. :winky:

Mrs R saw a programme involving car-jacking recently and told me she was no longer completely happy with waiting for me in the car with the keys in the ignition outside shops etc (we live in & come from Croydon).

The other night I stopped up the road fom off-licence to but a box of Stowells 3 litre finest Tempranillo (big day at work next day so I wanted to make sure I got to sleep ok). I took the keys with me and sort of instinctively locked her in with the remote.

By the time I got back there were two or three people quite close to the car, one of them a wino from the church adjacent and the noise was terrific. There is a horn there somewhere but I'm not convinced there's something else going on too.

Good ride home - she'd learnt to stay very still and very quiet, and I couldn't help but feel a new found confidence and satisfaction that the GS was behaving just the way I'd hoped.

Will investigate further and let you know how many horns etc I've got. Does it make much of a difference of you press the remote twice and get the longer second flash on the indicators?

Tempranillo was average

cheers

Paul
