Question about 2004 Lexus RX 330
Just started getting a VERY HIGH PITCHED warning sound that begins about 5 seconds after starting the engine and lasts for roughly 8 to 10 seconds. There are no warning indicators illuminated that coincided with the high pitched warning sound. Again, this just started to happen and has never happened before. My vehicle is a 2004 Lexus RX330.
Maybe your alternator belt needs replacing. Hope this helps, best regards!

Testimonial: "Thank you for the attempt to answer and help but that is not it. I have a really good user level maintenance capability and I would know that sort of issue you suggested immediately. The issue I have is literally a warning buzzer of some kind but it is nothing like I have ever heard on any vehicle...ever! It is very, very high pitched and sounds similar to when a T.V. station goes off the air for the night. It is distinct and is obviously of design. It is distinct when it comes on and distinct when goes off. The owners manual nor the supplement speak of any sort of sound, warning noise etc."
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have a 2001 Lexus RX300 with 120,000 miles on it and I know exactly what is wrong with this car. You either need a new a new Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) or you must clean the one you have with some throttle body cleaner. I cleaned mine a couple of years ago. They are usually good for about 80,000 miles and then they get dirty due to emission controls (smog being recirculated and reburned). The IACV is located near the trottle body on the underside. Check lexusownersclub.com and you will see specific instructions on how to clean this throttle body. It costs you a can of throttle body cleaner and some of your time and this condition will not occur again - I did it!

Are you sure this isn't the power steering pump? I suspect it is as the noise you have described would be rare in an automatic transmission. Have a local repair shop listen to the noise and confirm what I suspect is a defective power steering hydraulic pump..
