Apparently, the most common cause is a loose gas tank cap. It has to be tightened until it clicks. Other, more serious faults can cause this indication, but the loose cap issue is widespread. Hopefully, that's all it is in your case!

The outer cone is where the problem is, right where the fiber/foam of the cone material attaches to the outside metal frame. if you look closely, you will find the speaker is torn along this line, at least at some point(s). I used ge silicone 2 clear, make a bead all the way around, took about ten minutes, could not be better. Great fix. Also check lexus owners club for more detail.

SOURCE: 2004 Lexus Ls 430 Low tire

My 2004 Lexus LS 430 has had the light come on several times, even after changing all four tires. There are no tire pressure sensors on my four tires. I was told the car computes tire rotations and since a low pressure tire takes more rotations than a fully inflated tire, the computer puts up a message on the dash.
To reset/turn off the message, put the emergency brake on, start the car and reach below the dash to the right side of your steering column until you feel two buttons in a depressed area under the dash. One button turns on /off your smart key and the other will turn off your tire low pressure message. Depress and hold until the message on your dash goes out and you are good to go. I know this works, I just reset mine a few minutes ago.

SOURCE: how do you replace headlight on lexus ls430?

This is one of the easiest fixes you can do on your lexus...all thats needed is just unscrew the canisters' holding the lightbulbs, they look like dome fixtures encasing the HID lights...once you unscrew those, the bulbs are held in place by simple snap components that actually hold the lights in place...pull the old lamps out...unplug them, and then reverse this took me all of 15 minutes, and a savings of $1000 to do this...

I have a 2003 lexus ls 430 my check engine light came on with the vsc off, and exclamtion mark all at the same time and I don't know what that means?

Hi there:
When this comes on as it has it means: When the center differential is locked, VSC control turns off and the VSC OFF indicator illuminates. This is straight from the Lexus diagnostic chart.

The system is faulted in some way so you will need to have the fault memory read out, and then depending on what fault code or codes are stored will determine the type of diagnosis that will need to be performed.

A dealer would be your best bet to get the cause determined. Their scan tool, when hooked up to you vehicle will give them all of the information they need to rectify your condition. After the scan results are found, replacement parts or adjustments can be performed.

Hope this helps.

How often should I get an alignment on my 2005 Lexus 430 LS? I can't find this information in my owners manual.

In my opinion, if your steering wheel is straight, and not pulling, and your tire wear is even, I wouldn't worry about it. Alignments are usually done for those reasons, and for major front end parts replacements.
