SOURCE: Cracked screen on 2004 lexus rx330 nav unit

I know there are aftermarket units but you will spend at least $1000 to get one.
However there is an all new RX for 2010, so, as the demand drops off for 2004-2009 accessories, the prices should begin to drop. I have also seen entire RX 330-350 units on ebay while searching for parts for my 2001 RX300.
I do know this is major work as I have seen the techs install an XM kit, ipod jacks and a rear DVD player as well.
They take out half the dash..... It is not a fast fix so at $100 an hour at the dealer, maybe a new aftermarket unit with far better resolution would be your best value.The 2004-2005 RX NAV was a bit grainy for my liking.......

SOURCE: How to replace Lexus RX330 headlights.

replacing the headlights is easy. There is no need to adjust the afs, is is automatically done within the vehicle. Changing the bulbs doesn't affect the afs system at all.

SOURCE: VSC and Malfunction Indicator came on and stays on

When you say malfunction indicator , do you mean `check engine`` light.
These paired lights can indicate a change in engine air flow and fuel mixture. Try a fresh tank of premium fuel, but first a unscrew and re-screw the gas cap until it ratchets into place. The lights can be triggered by a loose gas cap, a fouled O2 sensor, and several other emission related problems including sticking throttle body components, etc.
This can sometimes be sprayed with carb cleaner inserted in the snorkle area of the air intake where teh snorkle meets the metal intake.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the reply, it was a loose gas cap once tightened it all cleared. This was very helpful."

SOURCE: 2005 Lexus RX330 All warning lights come on while I am driving

Believe it or not, it is the brake switch!!!.
I did not believe it either but our 2005 RX330 had the same problem. Car still was running but all lights came ON. Dealer fixed in a short time and replace the brake switch. OK now.

Possibly the handle, used to position the seat, has internally "stripped out". Take the handle off and inspect the inside splines. If stripped, replace the handle.

Looks like the window/door control ECU lost it's program while the power was off or low. You need to see the lexus dealer to reprogram the ECU which is done with a sequence of buttons to press.

2005 Lexus RX330 HID ballast replacement, passenger side headlight. What is the removal procedure please?

I have a 2005 Lexus Rx330 with HID AFS headlight. My passenger side light went out. I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. After replacing the new bulb, it happened exactly like my old bulb. It light up lightly and then total black out. What's wrong with it? I thought the ballast burnt. I called Lexus dealer and asked for the new ballast/transformer. Surprised me, they don't know what is it. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast ??????? Could you tell me what do I need to replace?

How do you install Navigation Disk on 2005 RX330?

You will need to access the back of the vehicle either in the cargo area behind the rear seat or under, the seat... not sure which model year used which location but try behind the seat first.. This will involve removing the liner and the housings underneath it so you are down to the metal of the floor boards
