SOURCE: Radio removal 200 Lexus ES300

First you need to remove th wooden bezel surrounding the shifter. Do this by gently prying up the bottom part of the wood closest to the cup holders in the armrest using a small screwdriver. Then work out te top part gently. Rotate/angle the wood bezel to get it over the shifter. It will slide past, just work it around the button. Once this is removed then you need to remove the ashtray below the climate control. Now that the shifter bezel has been removed locate the 2 screws securing the bottom of the ashtray housing and remove them. The ashtray then will only be held in be retaining clips at the top. Once the screws are removed you'll want to have the ashtray open to get better leverage on it to pull. Gently slide the ashtray out. Be careful not to pull to hard on the actual tray of the ashtray. there is a plastic tab in the back of the ashtray that can't be seen that prevents it from coming out all the way that can easily be broken. If you do break it the ashtray is still secured to the swing mechanism by 2 screws in the bottom of the tray that will still allow it to be functional and secure, so don't worry. After the ashtray is removed the next step is to remove the small trim piece directly underneath the climate controls. On 2000 and 2001 models this will be made of wood. 97-99 models it will be black plastic. Using a small flathead screwdriver gently pry the strip of wood or plastic out. Starting in the middle of the strip is best, the retaining clips are on the right and left of the strip. It should pop out fairly easily.This will expose the screws holding in the bottom of the climate control which will need to be removed. Once the climate controls are removed the bottom radio screws should be visible. Next for the screws retaining the top of the radio you'll need to remove the clock/airvents located above the radio. Remove this with a small flathead screwdriver using the pop out method. Once removed this will expose the screws retaining the top fo the radio. Remove these screws and the screws at the bottom and the radio should slide out. Again, this will work on all models from 97-2001.

SOURCE: location of amp for 97 lexus sc400 how to remove/replace it

Your amp is in the trunk, on the right side if your facing the rear of the vehicle. remove the trunk carpet liner on the right side and its underneath the cd changer if you have the nakamichi stereo. to remove it you just need to take out 4 10mm bolts all are easily accessible. hope that helps.

take the woodgrain cover off around shifter, it pops off. next pull out the small panel just below the radio, pull it straight out towards you, set it aside. there are 4 bolts holding the radio in, you will need a light to see the back 2. remove these bolts and carefully pull radio straight out.

This could be a few things, but check the manual first and look for information about the radio in the index, to find the right page. There it may tell you that there is a security feature on most factory radios, which in turn means you have to call the dealership to get the codes to unlock it! NEXT step if no luck there would be to locate the fuse panel and look for blown fuses for the radio/accessories! Most likely though if it's a factory radio then it will be a security feature/antitheft.

Hi there, I have a 1999 Hyundai Excel Sprint and I cannot unlock the radio cassette. I've lost the security code card. Can you help?


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Hyundai service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

My security light is on and my radio gets locked sometimes while I'm driving. Does anyone one know why this happens?


yes, the anti theft system runs thru the radio. Either the radio is going bad and causing the antitheft to kick in, or the antitheft is bad and faulting the radio. I just went thru this in my girlfriends 01. Ended up installing after market radio and bypassing the security system. I bypassed thee antitheft security first, and the car worked just fine, but I didn't get any radio till I installed a new radio. Here Is a link to help with the antitheft http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

SEC appears on the radio Lexus ES300


SEC stands for security, the radio is in theft lock you must enter the unique code security that came with the car when new to unlock the radio, this SEC is triggered whenever the radio losses power like a theft or a battery disconnect. If you don't have this unique code you must see the Lexus dealer, they can look it up in the factory information link, it goes by the serial number of the radio and the VIN or the car.

We changed the battery in our 2001 Lexus LS430. It was dead and required a jump to start it. The new battery is installed, but now the radio does not come on. What happened?


The radio is probably locked out due to the antitheft system. It needs to have the security code (PIN) entered to get it working again. If you do not know the PIN. you will have to take the car to the dealer to get them to unlock it for you.
