Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

My father has just bought a NX300h 2018 in grey, so I have been reading up on topics to gain knowledge on this car on his behalf, I have a Mercedes E350d 2017, so not familiar with the Lexus, but did recommend the NX to him.

I have noticed that the one beep and two beeps doesn’t happen when locking and unlocking, and there is nothing in the door lock menu to enable this feature, but on a you tube video it shows that there should be this setting in the door lock menu, if not then the dealer can enable this feature. Is the you tuber correct, and others who have this model can you confirm that their cars beeps when locking and unlocking.

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Shahid

Look in the handbook under  customisations, there will be a table of all the things one can change and how it's done and by whom

Hi @Shahid NX300h

I have a 2018 NX and there are no beeps when locking\unlocking the car - just the metallic-sounding clang of the door locks operating.

Was the YouTube video recorded overseas? There are countries (e.g. the US) where regulations allow for such beeps.

Hi Andy, having read the manual, yes it doesn’t suggest anything about beeps on locking/unlocking. Yes it was the US. Thanks for taking the time out to give me confirmation.

Section 7 on the link below shows the option for locking/unlocking bleeps, typically earlier Lexus models had a simple “volume control” mounted under the driver’s side kick pad to adjust the level or turn if off.

Hi thanks for that, the car is booked in for a free health check on Thursday, will ask the dealer to program if it’s possible.

No problem, have a look through the complete list to see if you want anything else changing while it’s in. Most dealers will do them FOC as a gesture of goodwill and future business.

Wouldn’t mind the kick sensor, if the car is equipped to do so, I have this feature on my Mercedes, very useful when ones hands are full.

I seem to recall that the kick sensor was not made part of the european spec for the NX - but is available in say the US.

Given the that the TPMS sensor can be added in via 3rd party parts, you could probably do it as well...

Wonder why that is, have it in the Mercedes, and works a treat, very useful feature when you have your hands full and want to open the boot.
