I have a 2005 GX 470, with 55k. I am orginal owner. I have never noticed untill now, when I drive the temperature gauge is at 1/2. I thought it was at 1/4 in the past. It stays at 1/2, and does not get hotter. No matter how long I drive. Also when I turn the SUV off, it seems very loud, before it goes off. When it is going it is fine.?
#134 of 141 Sunroof, 2006 GX470

I have noticed a few times that when my sunroof is open, the sunroof motor will randomly run for a few seconds. After some testing, I have determined that when the sunroof is open, the motor will come on for about 2 seconds when i go above 55mph, and it happens again when I drop below 55mph. When the motor runs, the glass roof is not moving to open or close. I think instead the air dam in the front is doing something.
I called the Lexus dealer in my area to ask if this was by design or a problem and they didn't know. I couldn't find anything in the manual about it either. I have read of some very expensive sunroof repairs on this site so I want to make sure this "feature" is by design and not a precursor to some expensive problem. My car will fall out of warranty in a few months.
#135 of 141 Transmition Trouble
Oct 12, 2010 (8:50 am)
I own a 09 GX470 and I love it but occasionally while driving especially if I go through the fastlane tolls I slow down to go through but when I try to accelerate my car bucks first then goes. My husband notices this too while driving. Also when trying to go from reverse to drive the transition stalls in neutral then slams into drive. Does anyone experience this?

Very easy place the key in ignition turn to on position. Be sure the ODO is displayed. Turn key to off position. Hold the reset button on the dash and keep hold while move the key the on position. Then the Maint Light will blink and the light is reset you can let go.

I had similar problem and I fix it after going to the dealership and getting no way. The connector for the transmission underneath on the passenger side. The connector was not snapped to the transmission properly, very loose. Inside the pig tail connector there is a rubber garment that has to be fitted properly in order to have connector snap correctly. The trick is the orange rubber piece has to be push so the excess is bulging at the open small spot. You will need something thin to position garment this way so it will snap properly.

My rear end is stuck about 4-5 inches higher than it should be.(no funny jokes)
Have worked with the height adjustment sensors and arms. Started after towing very heavy trailer.
Feel like it is the air bag suspension. can anyone give a link on how to trouble shoot this?
