Question about 1996 Lexus ES 300

Open Question

Heater, a/c, radio all stopped working at the same time

I don't know if this is related - but for a while - my radio reception would go off and then magically back on again - all of the LEDs and buttons worked.

One day on my 1996 Lexus ES300 the heater and the a/c and the radio all stopped working simultaneously. All of the LEDs went blank. The only LEDs visible on the radio/heater panel are the ones for the clock.

Did the new ignition switch fix the problem?

How does the ES 300 fit your driving style?
Conservative drivers your dream come true, Smooth, comfortable and quiet, easy to control and predictable. This car is the one to beat.

Sporty drivers Electronic throttle is very responsive, handles well for a car with such a cushy ride, Not as powerful as the other cars in this class.

Fast drivers Should opt for the Adaptive Variable Suspension. The firm setting provides this car with the character you are looking for as far as handling goes, but for all around performance, you may be happier with a Lexus IS300 or maybe an Acura TL Type S.

The answer to your question - the IS-250 is a luxury model, and the IS is sporty.

Both considered in the same CLASS of vehicle - near Luxury.

Who should buy this car? A person who is looking for a mid-sized sedan that is a cut above the average sedan in styling, comfort, luxury & performance.


Thank you for using FixYa - A FixYa rating is appreciated!!

I just changed the cabin filter of my ES300. I found the instructions on the manual, under airconditioning and audio. It's pretty easy to do. I bought the filter from Kragen's for $21.95.

SOURCE: Radio removal 200 Lexus ES300

First you need to remove th wooden bezel surrounding the shifter. Do this by gently prying up the bottom part of the wood closest to the cup holders in the armrest using a small screwdriver. Then work out te top part gently. Rotate/angle the wood bezel to get it over the shifter. It will slide past, just work it around the button. Once this is removed then you need to remove the ashtray below the climate control. Now that the shifter bezel has been removed locate the 2 screws securing the bottom of the ashtray housing and remove them. The ashtray then will only be held in be retaining clips at the top. Once the screws are removed you'll want to have the ashtray open to get better leverage on it to pull. Gently slide the ashtray out. Be careful not to pull to hard on the actual tray of the ashtray. there is a plastic tab in the back of the ashtray that can't be seen that prevents it from coming out all the way that can easily be broken. If you do break it the ashtray is still secured to the swing mechanism by 2 screws in the bottom of the tray that will still allow it to be functional and secure, so don't worry. After the ashtray is removed the next step is to remove the small trim piece directly underneath the climate controls. On 2000 and 2001 models this will be made of wood. 97-99 models it will be black plastic. Using a small flathead screwdriver gently pry the strip of wood or plastic out. Starting in the middle of the strip is best, the retaining clips are on the right and left of the strip. It should pop out fairly easily.This will expose the screws holding in the bottom of the climate control which will need to be removed. Once the climate controls are removed the bottom radio screws should be visible. Next for the screws retaining the top of the radio you'll need to remove the clock/airvents located above the radio. Remove this with a small flathead screwdriver using the pop out method. Once removed this will expose the screws retaining the top fo the radio. Remove these screws and the screws at the bottom and the radio should slide out. Again, this will work on all models from 97-2001.

SOURCE: amplifier location 1993 lexus es300

My Son has a 95 es300, the amp for it is located under the front passenger seat. The easiest way to access it is to remove the 4 bolts holding the seat down, and remove the seat. Takes about 5 minutes

Toyota corolla professional aerial problem, reception on radio


Some tints have metal in them so it might cause you grief but how is the radio when you wind down the windows ?
A power aerial might fix the problem put in the front fender and then run to the radio via a coaxial cable.
However in my car it was the radio that was the cause of the same bad reception and it worked on one channel only.
I have since replaced the radio but this may not be the cause of your problem and you would want to really know if the radio was the cause before incurring an expense of a new car radio.

Make sure your fan is working properly. When you turn on the heater you are forcing the fan to cool the radiator. It may not be turning on automatically when it is supposed to. Let us know if this helps..

Very bad am radio reception, how do i fix?


If it's interference from the high tension wires,you probably need new spark plug wires with good resistor type plugs.
Now,also a bad antenna or a poor match of frequency to the antenna from the rec eiver can cause weak reception.Anyone who knows electronics can match the antenna to the receiver. don-ohio

RDS reception with BMW Business radio


Well i remember the M25 being built so i wouldnt know about radio reception ,but i do remember radio london and caroline.Now i would imagine that this sort of auto reset of tuning reception is controled by a micro chip and this chip is now not working as it should so if you want it to work then its most likely cheaper to install a new radio.Or just use long wave for radio 4.

My 96 dodge grand caravan has no radio reception


This seems to be a common condition amongst Chrysler vehicles.If it fades in and out while driving then the problem is inside your radio.If it's just lousy all the time I would try tugging lightly on the exposed part of the antenna lead on the pass. side near the heater box. If that clears the problem then you've got to pull the face plate off the radio and possibly the whole cluster and then remove the radio just enough to remove and pinch the radio end antenna receptor.
