This is normal. I also have a 2000 ES300. This became a problem when i tried to run an aftermarket sub off of the wire leads from the stock sub-woofer. When I would switch the radio off there would be a loud, deep, constant bass tone. As far as I know you cannot stop the voltage from continuously supplying the sub-woofer this is the way the factory amplifier is programmed, however, if you cut one of the wires(youhave to cut because wires are soldered to sub-woofer) the humming noise will not occur when radio is shut off. Cut the wire in middle and add crimp connectors so you can reconnect later if needed. You only need to cut one and it doesn't matter whether it's the black or red wire.

Clock went out on my 2000 Lexus ES300. I don't see a fuse for it? Nothing else not working


There isn't a fuse. Clocks are very low voltage and ampere draw. Access the plug. Pull it and replace it(corrosion). If it starts working agian, you are good to go. Otherwise replace the clock module.

2003 lexus es300 won't start... radio lights and windows work. Tried a jump start, still doesnt work...


Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

How do I remove and replace the rear speaker in my 2002 Lexus ES 300?


Hello, I have a 2000 ES300 and while the body style is different believe the newer model still has the rear deck mounted sub-woofer that you are referring to. The process of removing this speaker would start off the same as if you were going to replace the third brake light also located in this housing. Using a flathead screwdriver work your way around prying/popping up all four corners of the speaker grill covering the speaker that have the retainer clips. Once you disengage the clips work/maneuver the grill up and towards you gently and it should slide out. The bulb for the third brae light will be attached to this speaker grill, disconnect the snap wire from the bulb and you should have a clear visual of the speaker and the four bolthead screws securing it. Remove these screws and your almost home free. The next part might be slightly more difficult. If the speaker s simply connected by a clipped on wiring harness, just detach.On my 2000 ES300 i have the pioneer system(Not Nakimichi) and the 2 wires (one black, and one red) are soldered directly to the speaker. You can take a soldering iron(maybe a battery or gas powered one unless you have an inverter) and remelt the solder to remove the wires or you can elect to simply cut the wires. If you choose to cut them make sure you cut them as close as possible to the soldered joints so you have plenty of wire left to install the replacement speaker.Then install replacement either soldering or using crimp clamps and reassemble. ( Note if you simply want to add a aftermarket amplified sub-woofer you don't need to remove the sub-woofer out of the housing. You can tap into the wire leads and run it directly to the amplifier. Just cut one of the wires leading to the stock sub-woofer so it doesn't also come on and potentially blow while the radio is on. This will also prevent any bass humming when the radio is shut off but the aftermarket amplifier is still on because once one of the wires to the stock sub-woofer is disconnected or cut it breaks the circuit. Hope this helps.

I would first check all the wires to your speakers it may just be that. If all seems ok It may just be a defective radio and I would call the make of the radio and see if the radio you have purchased is the problem. I hope tis helps and wish you all the luck. You have a wonderful day.
