1996 Lexus Ls400 Questions Suspension And Heated


Recommended Posts

Hello peeps hows it all going? Right i have a few questions i hope some wont mind helping me get to the bottom of.

1) the drivers seat is not getting hot i suspect the heating element has gone is it possible just to change the heating element or does the seat need to be sent away to a shop to get it repaired. Also if it is repairable where can i get the part other than the lexus dealer as they are very expensive and i hate getting ripped off.

2) Front left upper control arm bushes have gone and causing the tyre to wear very badly on the inner side of the left wheel. Lexus want 341+ vat so they can stuff it really. Anyone else have a source for this part.

3) front right abs wheel sensor is playing up when i brake at low speeds the abs kicks in. i did the abs diagnostics by bridging terminals on the diagnostics port and reading the error codes and has come up with the front right wheel sensor. UK driverside.

any advice would be much appreciated and i look forward to the help.

regards

oh by the way my display on the stereo is playing up anyone knopw where i can find a second hand unit for a few pennies.

not having much luck !

i find the seat heating very suttle on my car it is a much more a backgoround warmth rather than in your face (or BUM !).

all my seats front and back are the same so check first that they are definatly gone.

there are several articals about suspension bits listed over the last few days.

some stateside for replacement bits.

i have just ordered up a couple of small bits from sewells in texas, so we shall see how they go.

as for abs sensor, sounds like you will have to either have to buy new or from breaker, same for radio.

good luck

right got a second hand sensor and left upper arm, i am still having problems with the abs, i have no abs light on but when ever i break to stop just before the car comes to a complete stop the abs kicks in for a second then the car stops it only does it at very low speed meaning just before the complete stop. anyone else have the problem.

and as for the upper left arm at the front the tyre was being worn on the inside at a tremendous rate but tracking etc all checked out ok i have put in a differant arm now but to be honest there was nothing wrong with the old one as far as i could tell.

any advice would be appreciated

regards

Have a look at the speed sensor rotors on each wheel, [look like a castle wall]

if they are very dirty between serrations, it sometimes fools the abs sensor.

cheers ;)
