  1. An update to my post. I used some diagnostic software and it reports 'Compressor Locked'. Does anyone know what this is? I turns freely. Both clutch and pulley. If I can fix this I'll have a go, but nearing replacing the compressor.
  2. Yes The-Acre. It’s fully charged and holds it’s charge well. When I run the self diagnostics it gives a code of 00 which is no faults. When on is selected on the ac the car revs change up, so the car thinks all is good. It’s only then that the ac shuts down and it announces ‘check air conditioning’ (Or similar). I’m going to remove the pump and check it. Thanks for posting.
  3. My aircon compressor clutch isn’t firing on my RX300 2004. My clutch turns quite easily. The connection gets 12v when I switch the ac on then quickly switches off. I assume because the clutch doesn’t spool up. I’ve tried a direct feed to the compressor but it still doesn’t get the clutch to fire. I can only assume the coil is faulty, so if I can get a coil I will. This leads me to my question. Does anyone know if this coil is available anywhere? Also does anyone know what the three pins in the connection are? Before I purchase one I will be checking if it’s definitely blown.
  4. Thanks Herbie. I only just found it. It’s next to the ‘file’ tab. Was told it can change things like the reverse bleeper volume etc
  5. I got myself Lexus Diagnostic software. In there is an option to reconfigure certain things in the car. Or so I’m told. However, when I try to access this it asks for my car’s reconfigure code. Does anyone know anything about this?
  6. Thanks Colin. I didn’t get notice you’d posted. I took the gamble and purchased it. Works fine. So must be interchangeable.
  7. Hi Herbie. For some reason I didn’t get a notification that you posted. I’ve since found out the car has a self diagnostic page. It’s reporting low pressure, which it isn’t, so I’ve ordered a pressure sensor There’s no solenoid or fuse. Apparently. Still think there should be.
  8. Now that I have my air suspension working I’ve moved onto the air conditioning. Can anyone tell me where the ECU, the fuse and I assume it has a solenoid? At the moment the pump solenoid doesn’t engage, so I’m going to diagnose where the fault is.

  10. Hi all. I’ve been reading this post. Are these mounts on the air suspension model? ie RX300
  11. Unfortunately all the fuses were good. Now I’ll go hunting for the relay
  12. Thanks John. Managed to find it under a footwell panel. They don’t make it easy. 😳
  13. Hi all. Apart from the one in the engine compartment. Rx300. Is there another fuse box somewhere? I’m looking for the air con compressor fuse and relay.
  14. PCM. If found out that switch was there early on. Why Lexus don't put it out the way beats me. It's definitley on. Herbie. While following your suggestions I decided to have a more in-depth look at one of the sensors. When I opened it up I discovered on of the gold coloured springs had some decay. While quite difficult to see I used some abrqasion to clean in. I probably missed it on the last clean. Once put back on the car everything was perfect. Once again thanks for everyone's input. Cheers
  15. Hi Herbie. Having now checked all the cables, of which I think there must be millions, they all seem to be ok. I can see a car being sold soon.
