Vehicle runs well as usual.
In white font on the black screen: "Checking the maps disk. Please wait a moment."
repetitively appears for a few seconds, thenothing for many seconds.
Cannoturn off the air conditioner which I would shut off using the mouse knob and clicking on climate.
No telephone or features, voice dial, through the vehicle speakers.
No radio or CD player.
Removed thegative battery clamp for seveahours.
Removed the Lexus 16GB mini SD card. Then re-inserted it.
And now for a constructive response. Temporarily disconnecting the battery appears to be the standard fix. Since that didn’t work, take it to a dealer and have a hefty bank balance available. You may have a bad head unit and if so a car audio shop might be cheaper than the dealer. Best of luck and I for one understand your frustration.
Probably. TBH, I didn’t see one with anywhere near 288k. Still, let’s say it’s worth $25k, maybe less, as little as $20k. Plus, if I’m reading Nevada_545’s post correctly, that’s $2800 for just the part. But it’s still got to be a fraction of the cost of a replacement vehicle.
Yes, but I have never warmed themergencyehicle for my comfort.
Have kepthengine and transmission warm on cold winter nights with an electric skilleto lessen problems of accelerating a cold engine to highway speedsoon after start-up.
A State Patrol mechanic suggests replacing themergencyehicle by 300k.
Returning from an emergentransport Sunday afternoon, in the garage I drove the front wheels up on ramps andrained the hot oil. Thoroughly cleaned the canister and installed a new Fram oil filter cartridge and screwed the canister back on.
Cleaned the oil dipstick and opening where oil is poured in.
Had cleaned oil plug ready to screw on and oil pre measured.
Planned to have the oil drip out all night, but NOOOOooooo.
At Oh-dark-thirty (3:29 a.m.) the blood center calls for an 88-milemergentransporto a hospital.
Fortunately I remembered to screw on the oil plug before adding the oil.
You’ve already said the vehicle runs well otherwise and I doubt it sees the kind of service an emergency vehicle does. It’s still a lousy time to buy a vehicle and $2880+labor is less than a year of payments. You might as well keep the RX350 a while longer if you can.
