  1. Sorry for not replying guys. Never got any notification of replies. Thanks Beamish. Newbie I have reset it everytime I swap or replace a sensor. My local garage said it's probably the chain if I've investigated the sensors the way I have. I managed to get a chain sensor for £147 new. Lexus don't do them.
  2. One more question guys. The reason I asked about the millage. I keep getting P017 fault code. Bank 1 sensor B. Can anyone tell me where this sensor hides?
  3. Hi folks. My is250 2007 is showing P017 fault code, which brings on warning lights on the dash. I’ve replaced the sensor but to no avail. Before I set about replacing the timing chain (big job), can anyone tell me how long a chain should last for. I want to make sure it’s the chain My milage is 80,000 ish.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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?
  9. Thanks Colin. I didn’t get notice you’d posted. I took the gamble and purchased it. Works fine. So must be interchangeable.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.

  13. Hi all. I’ve been reading this post. Are these mounts on the air suspension model? ie RX300
  14. Unfortunately all the fuses were good. Now I’ll go hunting for the relay
  15. Thanks John. Managed to find it under a footwell panel. They don’t make it easy. 😳
