The electric trunk release may not function correctly. Our technicians tell us an additional ground wire can be added which should correct this concern.

My car now stalls when i try starting the engine and kind of drags when driving off initially.
Thanks I appreciate your suggestions very much
My car is 11 years old with 50k miles. The dealer is telling me it is time to change the belt.
We replaced the flexible break lines and fixed it for about a year. When you are slowing down to turn in somewhere they lock and it takes a few seconds to release . When someone behind you is following , it presents an unsafe situation. Help
Lexus SC430 Recalls
This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.
When deployed, excessive pressure can build in the passenger front airbag. This could cause the inflator to rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury to vehicle occupants. This recall affects both originally installed passenger front airbags as well as those that were installed as replacement service parts. Toyota and General Motors will replace the passenger front airbag inflator on their respective vehicles involved in this recall.
Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed. As a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator module found.
