  2. Hello out there I have a question concerning the Sat Nav fitted to my 2006 IS250 Mark levinson equipped model. My question is what dvd discs are suitable by this I mean can you just insert any of the newer disc up to the introduction of the HDD or do I have to source a version/type for the model I have I have attached a pic of my disc it looks like an original. TIA

  6. I bought the 7.3" touch screen digitizer LTA070B511F $12.00 PLUS $45 postage from USA but it came from China it is supplied by Allway it arrived today and I fitted it in about an hour after work itarrived ten days early as well. It worked with no issues and is clearer than the original screen it has no rainbow effect and looks great in the dash. I am very happy to have bought it . The seller is on eBay as tomway360 . He has one on under item number 172051499628 but check the fitment for your car. Hope this helps you.

  9. Hello All, My Is250 SE-l multimedia Mark Levinson has decided to have a touchscreen failure I have searched the forum and it looks like I need a digitizer the issue I have is trying to work out on eBay etc if the ones being sold have the Rainbow effect does anyone in Lexus land have the link to the correct type ? TIA
  10. Tonight on my way home the Lexus had a hissy fit . Cracking through the radio and then alternator light came on dash lit up like a Xmas tree VSC on and all warning lights , it kept running then power steering disappeared sat nav went blank and all interior mood lighting disappeared. I managed to limp home and the car stopped it would not re-start battery was flat . After a few minutes the car started and all was ok. After a few seconds the scar stumbled and the alternator light came on lifted the bonnet/hood and I could smell burning the alternator was fried. I have removed alternator after discovering the small bracket on the back eventually and it smells quite acrid so I suspect it is toast so new one has to be found . Will I need to have any lights reset by Lexus after replacement ? I am going for a quality aftermarket one can you recommend a make? TIA Rod
  11. Thanks for that info there is a button I should really read my manual but it so big
