We have a 97 lexus ls400 with a factory namamichi amp. The amp has a short in it creating a draw on the battery when the car is off. Lexus says the amp has been discontinued. Do you know where we can send this amp to get repaired or buy a new/reman amp.

Re: 97 lexus factory nakamichi amp draw
Are you sure that the amp is what is causing the current draw? Try pulling out the amp fuse and radio fuse in your fuse box and see if the battery still dies. But, I would go to a local car audio shop. The company that we used when I worked at the shop was United Radio, you might be able to contact them about a quote if it is shorted. Another option is searching ebay, or a scrap yard. I'm sure there are plenty out there somewhere. Good luck.

The Nakamichi radio in the 1998 Lexus LS400 is turned on by pressing the large round button on the radio in. This same button also controls the volume by turning it clockwise or anticlockwise. The radio will use the same audio input that it used when it was turned off. The input can be changed using the series of buttons on the right side of the radio, tape, cd, fm, am.
in 1990 LS400, the amp is only for the sub, its located between the fuel tank and trunk liner. you can reach it by removing the trunk liner which cover the fuel tank right behind the rear seat. hope this helps
