Question about 2006 Lexus Gs 300

1 Answer

Both my 2006 Lexus GS 300 keys do not work and are not detected whiel in the car. Worked a few hours ago and all of a sudden nothing. I even tried my spare key with no luck. Any thought on how to repair? I doubt thta both bateries in the original key and the backup are out. Thought it may have to do with something in the "receiver" in the actual car.

Hi there,

the key is probably coded for the car. so you need to goto the dealer and get the appropriate key blank. 
Honestly, it's best in this case to spend the money for the key at the dealer because they'll get you the right key and if it's coded, they wil code it to the car for you. if they're charging a grand, it sounds like the key is coded. the key might be laser cut as well, upping the price.

Why is my 2006 lexus gs 300 is burning oil

Every single 2006 gs300 will have this problem, and even after it has been "fixed" it's going to happen again due to the intake valves not being washed by incoming fuel. The design of the engine is a poor design and shouldn't have never been put out to production and sold to anybody. Lexus extended the warranty for this problem for 9 years and will not do a single thing for you if you're even one day out of the 9 years. Every single 06 gs300 should have been replaced with a completely different car under the lemon law the moment they realized the problem, but to save the money lexus just swept it under the rug leaving hundreds of thousands of their customers with a lemon.

We have a 2006 Lexus GS 300. (41,000) miles. We have an appointment Monday with Lexus for the knocking noise coming from the engine. Its so bad when your at a red light it sounds like a diesel truck. Now...

Check your oil. If it is milky/tannish, then all signs point to the possibility of a cracked engine block. I hope not. That would mean a new or rebuilt engine and probably a few thousand$$$. Hope it's something else, friend.

Replacement brake pads for 06 Lexus GS 300?

go with standard pads.they wear a little faster than ceramics.but they dont wear down brake rotors.ceramics pads are hard and they cause brakes to squeak.also your car is under warranty with lexus dealership.i would use what they said. because you have future brake problem. they will void out warranty for not using their brakes.
