Question about 2000 Lexus Gs 400

1 Answer

GS400 Radio and etc.

I have a Lexus GS400 but the radio part of touch screen does work. It say it is off but wont turn on. The navigation, temp. controls work fine. Also when this happened my power door locks will only work when the car is on, interior light dont work last will not hold memory like average fuel used, mpg and last tempature settings. I believe it is one thing since all this I noticed at about the same time. Any help would be appreciated

Check all the fuses.the radio is designed to stay on until you open the door once the vehicle is shut off ,so the radio and the locks are linked together.there is a low current 7.5 amp fuse or very close to that

No power to radio screen shows audio off. Navigation & wireless works

Do you have either of these symptoms?

1) You hear a click-click sound and/or high pitch sounds but no normal music/radio.
2) Your 30A fuse on the passenger side is blown.

Either of these would indicate the amplifier needs to be replaced or repaired.

The radio doesn't work and when I touch anything on the screen such as the the radio, media, controls, navigator etc all it does is makes the radio seek.Can anyone help? Brian

car is new
(other shoe drops to floor, and car runs perfect other wise??????)
car is in warranty!
get it fixed? rings a bell, no?
for free. too.

if frisky and want to risk voiding of warranty, , check fuses?
my first jeep had 6 transistor radio. (just after ("fleming valve" tube era ended)
now it's over 1 million transistors., (non trivial that)

from a $29 radio (then) to a $2900 radio.
check fuses.
if fuses good get it serviced, it's non trivial.

My uconnect in my 2008 Jeep wrangler have the time works sometimes it won't come on or you can use the touch screen to change radio stations. Help????

i cant understand your post. "have time" and (it wont come on) and
or you can use touch, << did you mean Can't ?)
tell that which works and does not. (
media center 730n? this failing
with Navigation?

get it serviced,?
this is what we call the magic features, Uconnect.
(window dressing bad?)
DIY ? what are you asking?
Help to do WHAT.?

or check fuses.
is car battery charged to 12.6vdc rested???? or at below 11v.?
does car run and drive? perfectly,

in the shop, they checks fuse, and battery voltage.
then they scan the PCM for errors, if they have errors the fix
that first. like bad comms to u connect/nav, radio , ,etc.
then work up to the actual head. finally replacing it.

these are fancy , complex to the max , high end options.
and when they bust are expensive to fix. '

my guess is you have this system.?
AM/FM (1-CD/DVD/MP3), full map navigation (6.5" integrated touch screen display), 1-disc data drive,
integral satellite & input jacks (RER)

"These radio receivers can only be serviced by an authorized radio repair station. See the latest Warranty Policies
for a current listing of authorized radio repair stations"
this means very special tools are needed to fix the unit
and access to special software updates in the unit.
go to the dealer an get just that.

Radio stereo

Did you check the fuse? It may have a separate fuse then the AC and GPS. For some reason its broken I'd look online for a used car radio.
