    2001 sc430 owned since 2008. It's been a few months and it's been a grinding noise coming from the brakes with a whirring sound. After reading some forums it looks like it was the ABS pump I bought one one off eBay pay for £600 unfortunately the brake light anti skid and abs lights stayed on.. after putting it on a diagnostic machine yes yes I should have done this at first it showed the rear speed sensor on the driver side I ordered one off eBay which did say it would fit for the ridiculously low price of £2.03 getting to the actual driveshaft was quite fun 2 Days Later after fitting the part I took it back to the diagnostics because the lights are still on and it showed two different speeds because the bore of the replacement was the same as the original that the outer diameter was smaller than the original hence one side the driver side showed 60 mph and the opposite side should 25 mph I then ordered the parts of reluctor ring for £88 and some pence I was assured these were the correct parts after fitting them today day I found they are not the right size I contacted Gavin he was very helpful I gave him the details of the size required which hopefully should be 94 mm on the outer diameter rather than 96 mm which stopped rotation of the drive shaft he did say he'd make some and send them to me by Wednesday I have some pictures but beware please the SC430 has different reluctor rings of this particular year the outer diameter should not be 96 mm it should be 94 mm maximum
  2. I was hoping for a step by step guide. But at £300 for both sides I think that's a bargain
  3. How much would it cost for fitting
  4. Alittle late but for all those out there, thechameleongroup, on ebay.
  5. Hi, could you let me know which website had the instructions. I have been attempting the removal but have only managed to release the lower two bolts. The ac unit has two small screws facing down towards the chassis you did not mention there removal. Is this unneccessary. Asif

    Hi Chaz, I have changed one of the oxygen sensors, highlighted by the engine light, yet still only manage between 16-19 mpg. As I mentioned before the mileage is in the rush hour, 3 miles to work and back. This gives 230-240 miles per tank. However in the first week of June I drove to Manchester and Hull giving me a range of 390 before the low fuel indicator came on. Even then I just managed to squeeze 63 litres in compared to the usual 68-70 litres. Proof again that this is a motorway cruiser. Asif.
  7. Hi All, I think the chassis and suspension are not designed for that kind of power. The model to go for would surely be the ISF. Suppose you might stick on a couple of nitrous.
  8. Oh yes ,i've had them fitted,and are working fine.the sensors all send out a reading ,and the car finds that reading.In your hand book states were your reset,and program are,the rest is a walk in the park.One of my m8', used the old sensor ,took them off and fitted them to his new wheel,and had no problems.his sensor were on his car for 3 years, and came off easy.hope u win with yours B) I've check the sensor and they all have the same part numbers.by turning your sensors off,u might lose your pre-crash,EBD systems , which all work on the same system,before turning your system off, find out more from dealer. :o Hi Terry, Any chance of showing a step by step on resetting the sensors. Oh and where to buy them. Thanks, Asif Hi Asif,I bought my sensor at a Lexus main dealer in the states,the sensor are the same as used by all the toyota and lexus models that have the system fitted which are the SE-L.The step by step reset is ,hold reset button until CHECH SYSTEM comes on,wait for system check then select 1 or 2 .and thats job done.make sure the car is NOTdriven before doing this.Hope this helps B) Thanks Terry, I hope its as easy as that. Is the reset button in the glove box or the one on the dash?

  10. Julie i have helped many people turn off the sensors on their SC430, but Lexus wont help as they are classed as safety feature. Drop me your email and i can give you information with direction on how to do this. IAN Hi Ian, Could you pass on how to deactivate the tyre pressure sensors, as no other tyre/wheel choice can be made. Many thanks, ASif email: sfmotors@hotmail.co.uk

    Hi Mat, Two of the ls400s were petrol only and I found 3000 mile oil changes effected the ease of starting and helped on consumption. The third ls400 had a gas conversion costing £1280. Unfortunately I ignored the rule of running the engine on petrol every third tank. Resulting in shattered valves, ouch! 25-27 mpg was the average around town even when they reached 200000. I'll have to wait and see how I can improve on the SC.

    Hi Ian, I bought my car at the end February, from a car dealer in Stockport, " Dace motor co." Quite a few niggles. Electric aerial, interior lights, tyre pressure warning light, damaged rear tail pipe, swimming pool in the boot, cam-belt due, parking sensors. All of which have been successfully corrected, apart from the reverse parking sensors. Oh the battery failed twice, maybe due to being parked up at the garage for a long period. "Battery aid" tablets may have hopefully remedied this. At the moment most of the mileage is in the rush hour in Leeds, hence 16-17 mpg. Although the initial drive from Manchester to Leeds showed 37 mpg. The mileage showing was 111622, the previous service showing 91000. Unfortunately showing the neglect of the vehicle. Having owned two LS 400s I may be able to revive the V8 to better mpg. Thanks, Asif

    Intown fuel consumption is around that figure. For a very slight improvement use higher octane fuel and regular use of injector cleaners. To achieve around 20 mpg.
