Have you actually pulled the headliner down in the front corners to check and make sure the tubs are attached to the roof drains? They are know to come off or leak.

Make sure the A/C drain is clear also.

here are four drains on the sunroof one on each corner. You're probably going to find that the rear drain is plugged up you will need to pull the headliner down in order to see these drain hoses that go down into each rear quarter panel to dump water.

Good Luck!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    For headliner, read :-

    If you want to repair it, i could only advise you to buy a service manual :-

    It would have all the details and different check points. It would also include the information for the check engine light codes.

    Good Luck!!

I have a 1993 Lexus ES 300 and it over heats after it has been idling. I can drive most any place in town but have to add water before I can drive it again it has a brand new radiator on it can anyone...

At first sign of ANY overheating, you never use the car
again, until properly resolved

To continue to drive it & add water ,can't tell you what
my feelings are about that non sense

Obviously where ever you went for help, failed to find much
& now you start over at a more competent shop

I have a 2000 Lexus ES 300. I purchased it as a repo and when it was taken they needed a key. It was taken to a dealer who made just a key that will open all doors, trunk glove box and start the car, no...

they made the new key and you called they flashed it for that new key so car will not recognize old key in ignition get another key from they if you want another key to start car ok. I have a 04 Lexus RX 330 and that how each key has different functions.

2005 lexus 330 inside trunk release switch does not work.The trunk will open if I use the remote button.

Check the valet trunk button in the glovebox. if thats not selected then its most likely the switch. however its unlikely, ive never seen one go bad before.

Car keys locked in trunk of 1999 lexus es 300

1. I presume your button on the dash (which opens the trunk) is not working. You could take that button out of the dash panel and manually activate the circuit by using the wires themselves.
2. If the "valet" key doesn't fit the trunk lock, see if the keys are visible through the center back seat access 'hole', make a wire hook attached to a broom handle, etc. and try to catch the ring the key is on. If the view is blocked by other things you can't move, figure out at way to move things in the trunk so you can get something to reach the key(s). Do you have other metal keys on the same keyring? If so, use a magnet to grab the whole set.
3. Have you considered taking out the rear seat? Do the bottom seat cushion first, then the back.
4. By now you have hopefully already gotten your keys back out of the trunk, but if not I hope one of these suggestions works. MW
