What is this discussion about?
Lexus RX 300, SUV
#9451 of 9498 noise in the dash
Aug 03, 2011 (7:33 am)
I have the same problem and my mechanic says it is the mode selector for the a/c - heater. It's around $500-600 to repair here in the DC area. I'm going to turn up the radio so I can't hear it and live with it until it quits working.
#9452 of 9498 2000 RX300 beeps every 15-20 secs while parked
Aug 03, 2011 (3:33 pm)
Title says it all. Not sure if it is happening while I am driving. The beep is not as loud as the beep when I engage the alarm but it is a similar sound.
The only thing I can notice that is an "alert" is my rear light out warning is lit. I checked all my lights and they appear to be on.
Is this even related?
#9454 of 9498 fuel pressure regulator
Aug 06, 2011 (12:51 pm)
I have a 2001 Lexus RX300. I have been fighting it for a couple of weeks. OBd2 codes show lean on banks etc. Car will start jerking, gas mileage will drop to 4-6mpg...I understand that the fuel pressure regulator is mainly the cause. Car has 106,000 miles on it. Problem is I need a picture showing me where the regulator is located AND where the pressure relief valve is (schrader?) Can someone please help. Cleaned the Mass Air Flow Sensor,
Codes indicate replaciing all fuel sensors...Can someone please help??

Hi I have the same noise from so long. I noticed that the noise only comes in Summer months. In the cooler temperatures it is fine. Just last week during the long drive for about 300 miles the noise changed to a noise like a radio noise by the power lines. It comes for little bit and stops and starts anytime even while starting the car.
Does anyone know the solution to this problem?

I know it's been many years for you but was there ever a resolution to this situation. The engine in my 2001 RX300 just seized also (150,000 miles). Checked the oil a week ago, it was 1 qt low, added the quart thought all was fine. Took the car on a 2.5 hr trip, ran great all the way, all of a sudden heard a clicking noise under the hood and then everything died, pulled over, wouldn't restart, though maybe battery or alternator, put new battery in and it started but was very rough, had the car towed and mechanic just called and told me the engine seized due to no oil, told him that it was checked last week but I think he thinks I don't know how to read a dipstick (I am female afterall). I don't think they opened up the whole engine just checked oil level and oil pan which had metal shards in it. But no lights or warning came on at all, no noise from the engine other than the clicking just before it went. Could this be a related problem? I bought the car 2nd hand at 97K and have all previous maintenance records, I do my own oil changes so no "official" records for that, only other issue with the car was the P330 light for the knock sensor in bank 2 that needed to be replaced, which was scheduled for this week. Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!

Another case of "kill the messenger"...
The knock sensor wasn't bad.

I JUST had this problem and my friend is the service manager of my local Lexus Dealer. I have NO brake fluid leak, low fluid, or parking brake up. Mine is the sensor in the cap on the brake fluid that is bad. If you disconnect it from the Lex and see if it stops. You will need to replace this soon. It wont affect the performance but will not alert you to any problems with the fluid. I was quoted around $115 for the OEM cap. Just a toyota part. Hope this helps.

Is it possible to break down the antenna motor to remove a broken piece of the nylon gear tail?
