i might try this. always wanted to change my unlock door settings and turn off the auto open trunk (cool feature...until you need to get to the trunk during a downpour). however, i just lived with it because i know it will be at a cost at the dealership....

FWIW, this Carista app is the real deal. For a grand sum of 20 bucks you have a device to customize ALL of the options you can with Techstream AND a diagnostic tool. I place my ELM module in my glove box so I always have an OBD tool at hand. Plus, it's dirt simple to use and takes a mere minutes to change whatever settings ya want. ALSO....you can use it in ANY vehicle, not just our Lexus'.
Just swap your 9005 hi beam with a led that has 4300k or 5k color and that dingy yellow goes away..there's a thread on it

You know if you press the button again, you can open it manually. Saves time when you are in a hurry.

FYI
Tried this on my 2010 LS600hL, works like a charm and so simple to use! Highly recommend this if you want to change settings.

Gonna try it in the RX350 as well.
