SOURCE: transmission won't go into overdrive when engine is hot

Lexus's have a complicated system of electronics that control the function of the transmission.Under normal operating conditions the transmission is controlled by the ecu and by a secondary system called a drivetrain control module. usually when a fault occurs it sends a code to the ecu and the check engine light comes on.
If this light does not come on then typically the electronic modulator is at fault and needs to be replaced.
If the check engine light comes on when the vehicle is hot i need this code to guide u further for the repair.
If u want to attempt the repair , be wary. its messy and takes time to do to do it right.

SOURCE: replace side marker light on lexus rx300

Remove 3 - 4 screws on fender cover close to side marker light. Pull fender cover out a bit for you to use your other hand to reach side marker light. By twisting on one direction and here you go the light out. Replace new bulb and replace everything on reverse order.

SOURCE: I have 3 codes 1) P0500

The PO125 is an indication of an engine running too cold-as if the thermostat were stuck open.For some reason it often sets with the PO1135 even when the engine runs at normal temp.A scan tool will indicate exactly how hot the engine is,don't trust the dash gauge. The PO1135 is a heater circuit fault in the bank1 sensor1 air fuel ratio sensor or oxygen sensor. Bank 1 is the REAR bank on this car...that O2 sensor is not much fun.PO500 is a vehicle speed sensor fault-does the speedo work correctly?it is located in the transmission near the back of the case. once again the scan tool will read vehicle speed and can aid in further diagnosis.

SOURCE: Problem w/transmission Lexus ES300 1999

Is your O/D off? There should be a light under your speedometer, if it says "O/D OFF" than your car wont go to fourth gear. You can turn the overdrive back on on the knob that changes gears, theres a little button on the side. Press it and you should be good.

Your 306 code means you have a misfire on cylender 6. That may be the cause of the po 125. Inspecdt the coil, spark plug wire, and spark plug on cylender 6. With the age of the car I would replace all 3 items. If you want know how to test all 3 I can tell you process of elimination is the way to do it. Do you know how to find cylender 6

I have a 95 lexus es300. a o/d off light is on my dash and won't go off


That is called the OVERDRIVE OFF and yes it will affect you transmission. The overdrive is your highest gear, used for highway cruising and will promote the best fuel economy. You have an Overdrive switch in the vehicle. It is either on the shifter knob or on the center console/dash. It allows you to disable the overdrive if you desire. It sounds like you turned it off unwittingly.

2000 es300 lexus auto w overdrive button overdrive 4th gear not work


There isn't anything wrong with your car. This is perfectly normal. I have a 2000 ES300 as well as other people that I know and it operates in the same way. Overdrive doesn't mean the same thing for every car or transmission. In our case overdrive is simply a reference to the top gear which is 4th gear. When you switch overdrive off(which is depressing the button causing the O/D OFF dash light to illuminate,) the highest gear becomes 3rd because you turned 4th gear or overdrive off. The application scenario for this is usually mountainous terrain where a lot of uphill driving makes it more feasible not to up shift into 4th gear while ascending and descending. It will not switch back to overdrive or 4th gear until you re-engage it by turning the overdrive back on or repressing the button. Again, when the O/D OFF dash light is illuminated, overdrive which is 4th gear is off and the highest gear will then become 3rd. It will never shift into 4th gear while this light is illuminated or overdrive is off. When you press the button and the O/D OFF dash light is NOT illuminated overdrive is on and therefore it will shift into 4th gear as usual. This applies to all 97-2001 ES300's and probably any other car you drive tat exhibits this same type of change when overdrive is turned off.
