2006 Lexus IS250 code P0348 help

It is definitely a cam problem. Was your replacement cam sensor OEM Japanese Denso, Made in China or Made in Mexico? Never go cheap on sensors. DTC P0348 stands for Camshaft Position Sensor "A" Circuit High Bank 2. This code triggers when the signal coming from the CMP sensor located in bank #1 is either missing or inconsistent. The CMP sensor measures the speed and position of the engine's camshaft. Sep 29, 2023

Whenever I start the car it smokes than after

The key is how much smoke? Does the smoke have a smell to it. Are you consuming any fluids, like coolant, or oil?

Tons White smoke that is sweet smelling is usually coolant getting into the combustion chamber.

Less white smoke, especially if other cars are doing it, is normal. For every gallon of gas that you burn, you generate a gallon (GALLON) of water. so this water usually evaporates, but sometimes not. It has little or no smell.

If the smoke is bluish white, that is oil, but usually your converter would fill with oil, and cause error codes, or loss of power. This smell is distinct, but not necessarily sweet.... After the converter heats up, it may be able to burn off the oil and the smoke stops.

What are you consuming, fluid wise, will direct where you go next.

Looking for the audio amplifier in a Lexus LX470 1998. It is not under the seat as mentioned in the manual

If you can't find the audio amplifier under the seat as mentioned in the manual, there are a few other places you might want to check:
  1. Trunk area: Some Lexus LX470 models have the audio amplifier located in the trunk area, often mounted on the side panels or near the rear speakers.
  2. Behind the dashboard: In some vehicles, especially those with more complex audio systems, the amplifier may be located behind the dashboard or near the head unit. You may need to remove some panels to access it.
  3. Under the center console: Occasionally, car manufacturers install amplifiers under the center console or beneath other interior panels. This location keeps the amplifier hidden and can save space in the trunk or under the seats.
  4. Behind the glove compartment: Sometimes, especially in luxury vehicles like Lexus, the amplifier may be tucked away behind the glove compartment. Removing the glove compartment may give you access to the amplifier.
If you still can't locate the amplifier after checking these areas, you may need to consult with a professional car audio technician or refer to specific technical documentation for your vehicle model. They may have insights or access to resources that can help you pinpoint the exact location of the amplifier.

2002 Lexus LX 470. Crank but no start, I've changed the battery and spark plugs and ignition coils and it still will not turn over. I need help please.

You say 'Crank, no start', but you also say 'it will not turn over'. They are the same thing, if it cranks, it is turning over, but not 'firing' or 'starting'. After you disconnected the battery, did you reset the Security System and Engine Immobilizer? You know it has one, that flashing light on the dash?

How Labor intensive is it to replace the drivers side lower control arm? I had a shop tell me that the engine has to be removed, and 15 hours of labor are involved

I what to make sure this is correct, this is a 2004 lexus rx 330 and the shop said it was 15 hours to replace the lower control arm. This sounds crazy but it is ture, the engine and trans must be removed to replace the lower control arm, i would replace them both as the labor is only 1/2 hour more to do both,and it inculde an alignment in that time also. its a dumb design. hope this helps good day.

You are the only person the report this issue. https://www.google.com/search?q=1996+Lexus+LS+400+blows+headlight+relay There is a dead short somewhere, but relays can be checked for correct operation and also the two feeds to the relay can be tested. One is 12 volts low amps + and - and the the other is the 12 volts high amps feed + and - to the headlight itself. Operation comes via an instruction from the BCM requested via the stalk switch.
