  2. I just fitted the above, without removing the shields, with poor results as all you get is a thin beam of light, like a torch through the hole in the end, with no light coming from the reflector. What is needed is an LED bulb that has illumination evenly all round the sides, like the original shines all around, so that the light is reflected by the reflector at the correct beam width and direction. Something like this but with the correct fitting.
  3. I don't think so, just as shown in the eBay picture. There is no rubber on my key, just the black buttons on the transferable remote unit, Email him, he was very quick to reply to my questions
  4. The key for my RX300 cracked so I bought one of the cheap key cases from the bay with the blank blade, and just used the back only to strengthen the original. That didn't last long. A bit more searching and I found this guy http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LEXUS-TOYOTA-2-3-BUTTON-REMOTE-KEY-CASE-SNAPPED-BROKEN-CUT-TO-CODE-PHOTOGRAPH-/262128351566?hash=item3d0811394e I was sceptical, but I took a photo of the original key for cutting (unless you have the code, but send both) and sent it to him, and the cut key that came back in only a couple of days, and was of very good quality, and it worked first time in the ignition. Just had to transfer over the button capsule, and it has shown no signs of deteriation in 9 months, and for only £15 delivered from the UK, you don't have much to lose. I have no links with this guy except as a satisfied customer, but I would endorse his description of his product.
  5. Is there a link to the fix please,

  8. Torque Pro works fine on my RX300, and on the BMW 3 series using the same OBD2 thingy. You can enter details for individual cars in the app. Go for it, for less than £15 and a bit of fiddling it is worth a try especially if you like gadgets ! Tell us if it works for you
  9. I bought an OBD2 Bluetooth reader from ebay for under a tener, and use Torque Pro app for £3 odd on my Samsung mobile. Sometimes I forget how to make them connect, but it will bring up error codes, clear error codes, and a lot more. You still have to rely on the internet to find out what the codes mean, but that is easy. There is a list somewhere on this forum.
  10. The photo is of an OBD2 Bluetooth unit that is plugged into the socket. Use a mirror and a torch. The socket should be there, recessed into the trim panel.

  12. Thanks for looking. I presume from the lack of the usual quantity of replies that there is no screen that shows battery condition/charging whilst on the move ?
  13. I have an RX300 1974 Nav, with 69000 miles, I love it. I was wondering if it is possible to bring up a screen that gives some idea of how the battery is charging, as can be found on my wifes Subaru Outback 2007. Something like a digital ammeter readout would be nice. It would be nice to know. Thanks,
  14. Might this be of help http://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/topic/39065-power-window-problem/
  15. Will try that Dennis. At least Grandma won't fall over on corners then. :winky:
