Lexus LS460 Problems
A clicking or knocking type sound may be noted from the brake actuator when applying the brakes lightly, or if the brake pedal is pressed while the vehicle is stopped. Our technicians tell us a revised brake actuator is available to correct this concern.
An intermittent no start condition may be caused by a failed "Push Start" switch. Replacing the failed switch should correct this concern.
The multi-cluster display screen may remain blank and navigation system errors may be noted. Our technicians tell us that these issues can often be corrected by reloading current software upgrades.

Due to the remnants of anti-corrosion plating, a fuel leak may develop from where the fuel pressure sensor is attached to the fuel delivery pipe. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will clean and reseal the area of the fuel pressure sensor to correct this concern.
Toyota is recalling 2000–2008 Lexus models due to micro-foreign objects in the valve spring that can cause it to break. This could cause the engine to fail suddenly, while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of a crash. Toyota will notify owners and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge.
A programming change to the variable gear ratio steering (VGRS) system can cause improper activation of the steering system protection logic, which is designed to protect the steering system when larger than normal inputs are applied when the wheel is fully turned. Improper activation of the protection system can cause the steering wheel to become off centered up to 90 degrees. This can happen if the steering wheel is fully turned and then quickly turned back to center. If the steering wheel unexpectedly becomes off center while driving, the risk of a crash is increased. Dealers will replace the steering control ECU free of charge. The recall began on July 12, 2010.
