You will probably have to locate the radio code and enter it

    Sorry don't have an answer for that.I assume you have taken the radio out to see if it written on or in the casing or perhaps in the hand book.Failing that perhaps a dedicated car audio store might be able to help,those guys are usually good

The radio only works on one side. The radio is locked. How do you unlock the radio?


The radio has to be reprogrammed at the dealer if it is locked - the screen will say - locked. Your problem is likely a failed radio if only one side doesn't work.

Car starts but all electronics are locked


You'll probably have to take it to the dealer to have the body control module(s) reprogrammed. The radio will require a separate reprogramming operation.

I recieved message ( RFA1 Battary low ) what does that mean


RFA means radio frequency actuation. This usually indicates one of your key fob batteries are getting weak. They work off RFA, by remotely operating your door locks thru radio signals. Its best to change the batteries in both remotes at the same time. They shouldn't, but not always need reprogramming. After replacing the battery, simply press the lock and unlock buttons together to re-synchronize the key fobs.

Radios locked


let me see if I can re-state this. I may be able to help. Your battery died and you started the car with a jump from another car or battery charger, and now the radio is "locked". Have you every "locked" the radio before? Does the radio come on?, If you can answer these couple of questions for me we might be able to get you an answer. Thanks, Bill

2001 lexus ls430. Dead battery at airport. jumoers turned over starter fine but car would not start and no dashboard lights, fan, radio but driver and front passenger windows and doorlocks worked but not...


Sounds as though when your battery died the engine imobiIiser locked down.
YOU MAY HAVE TO HAVE THE CAR TOWED TO A LEXUS DEALER AND HAVE THE MASTER KEY AND OTHERS REPROGRAMMED TO THE IGNITION...BUT
If you have your wallet key as well , try taking all to the airport. HOLD the card to the dash beside the ignition for at least 20 seconds, then try turning the key several times. I haven`t done an LS but the failsafe when a remote fails is to hold the key beside the ignition for at least 20 seconds ....
Also try the lock routine, but I think the issue is in dash..security needing to reboot to your key.
My understanding is that the lock routine re initialises the lock setstings when power is restored

the radio station buttons numbered 1 2 3 4 5 6. enter the 5 digit radio code there. if it locks up or goes to error you must remove the negative (-) battery cable to reset the radio and try again. it will let you try 3 times.
