Hello I just purchased a 1991 Lexus LS400

I have one of those 6 cd changers and got "err" when I started up the CD.

Here is what I tried and the result

1. I took out the CD,s replaced with new ones and it played but only for a bit, then even the new CD's got the err message

2. I then though maybe dust and/ or dirt so I took out the 6 pack of CD's and blasted compressed air into the unit from a can of computer cleaner compressed air. Lost the err message but then came back

3. Read a few other ideas on the problem and then tried the old hair dryer trick. (I am a long term live a board boater and have brought back may mis-behaving electronic devices that have moisture issues with the hair drier) However the hair drier did not do away with the err message.

4. two more boating tricks I thought of... I wiped down each leaf of the CD pack with rubbing alcohol
and actually got a good deal of dirt off the plastic, finally and probably the solution I sprayed some "wire dryer" a light spray then a mist.( Wire dryer made by Gunk is a spray can of a liguid we used all the time to get cars started in the cold weather, even got a better connection by spraying on battery wires to get the sailboat diesel started with an almost dead battery.)

I Waited a few minutes put back the cd holder and it worked.

It has been about 6 hours and it is still running like a champ.

could have been the combination or just the wire dryer...not very scientific maybe it will help

Jim,

I would just check the wiring going to the sensor on the washer fluid bottle. There could be a loose wire. Once the wire is checked. The only other option is to change out the washer bottle . The sensor is not sold seperately.

Lexus Cd-Changer


lol had this prob so many times, you will find that you have moisture in the cd exchanger and the way i found this out was on removing my cds first thing in the morning a noticed very slight misting on most of the cds. .i put the wifes hair dryer and blasted warm air into it for a good 15 minutes waited till it cooled down cleaaned carefully my cds replaced and away i went. hasten to add that this was temporary a few days later i got the odd cd not playing . i notice the prob more in cold weather and if the car has not been used for a few days. the boot maybe damp .. good luck .stu
