My electric door lock will not lock. I even have to manually lock it first, then hold onto the door handle when closing the door to get the door to lock. The key will not lock the door from the outside (weird). Any ideas as to how much I will need to put aside per week for how many weeks before selling the car, because except for this problem everything else is fine. My insurance company said, however, because of the age of the car, that if I was in a wreck, it would cost me a bundle to get the car fixed because parts are just not made for 11 y.o. cars. Its a beaut though at 31K miles.
I have a PCS "beep" every few seconds, how do I clear this without going to the dealer?
from the left hand side of the engine.The mileage is 101000Km and is fully serviced by dealership.
shocks seem okay. sounds occur mostly over straight driving, sometimes on turns...no diff which direction. handles well enough. tires & alignment okay (both recent). clunking has been occurring from 2009 & becoming progressively more often.
Acts like it isn't getting gas?
When it died, the car's power steering went out but the stereo and interior electronics functioned fine. The car would start, but would hold idle and die again. Had it towed to a shop (not dealer) and they seem to be struggling with the repair. They seem to think there was a short that fried the alternator and fuel pump and they're struggling with reprograming the the fuel throttle sensor. Are these cars know to have electrical problems.
Thanks for you help
for about two hours
Light won't go out
AT THE SAME TIME THE CAR HAD AN UP AND DOWN VIBRATION WHICH IS SLOW AT LOW SPEED AND GETTING STRONGER AT HIGHER SPEED.

OTHERWISE ALL SYSTEMS ARE NORMAL.

CAN I DRIVE 80 MILES TO MY DEALER ?

I have already replaced it before in March, 2014. Lexus paid for part I paid labor. Flaw in system?
My mechanic seems upset that I found part online , now hes telling me that after installing part the unit neefs to be programmed is that true
What, if any components make up the Euro-tuned sports suspension? The car rides on the Lexus 18" rims.
I have the navigation system with the Mark Levinson stereo. The volume control on the center console works fine. The steering column control button will change from AM to FM to CD etc. It will not control the volume at all.
No problem as yet, just anticipating brake rotor and pad replacement.
light shows low tire pressure. I've inflated tires but light won't go off
