Lexus LS400 ProblemsRear Window Sunshade Fails and Makes Grinding Noise
The motor for the rear window sunshade in the Lexus LS400 is known to fail. When this occurs, the sunshade will not extend over the window, and a grinding noise is heard until the motor fails as well.
Replacement of the sunshade assembly is necessary to correct this failure, however, removing the fuse for the sunshade will stop the motor from making the irritating grinding noise.
Higher mileage cars can develop creaking and groaning noises in the front suspension, particularly when coming to a quick stop. Inspection and replacement of any worn parts should correct this concern.
Owners have reported experiencing rough deceleration, inability to engage overdrive, and a check engine light with diagnostic trouble code P0770. Problems with the torque converter or deferred transmission maintenance can trigger this. Professional transmission diagnosis is recommended to address this issue to prevent unnecessary part replacement and expenditure.
Lexus LS400 QuestionsChanged the pressure line for power steering.pump now my brakes won't work... (1 answer)
I changed the pressure line but now my brakes won't catch I bleed them and added fluid but still no brakes
I tried to start my car and the steering wheel, won't turn, it's not stuck, I can move it left to right, but only2 inches, for both sides, and my emergency brake light and battery light, are not turning off after ignition.
After stopping at a red light or stop sign the car seems like the transmission is slipping. If you turn the car off and back on again it works fine until you stop again. It doesn't happen every time.
