United Radio gets good feedback and reviews. Only 325 dollars to repair ML amps and it's usually just a one day turnaround.

MY AMP went out on my 2009 LS-460 while still under Factory Warranty. It messes up your NAV and all audio. Gave me a loaner car and kept mine for about a week so they could get a new amp. It lasted about 3 weeks and went out again. They finally traced some wires and found a short. Those amp are $1,700 bucks. EXTENDED WARRANTY was bought.

Glad you fixed your "Clicking" noise. Luckily I had a Lexus Dealer nearby and they gave me a Lexus Loaner.

If only it was still $325 to repair our ML amps, that was UA price 2-3 yrs ago. The new price is $700 with same day turnaround depending on workload, It would have been nice to pay $325 but $700 is better than what a refurb or new one cost. Yes the pink fuse under the passenger footwell will kill the chirp another way is just to remove the amp, it has to come out anyway so that's the route I took. More info on the ML amp is in the FAQ sticky.

I stand corrected. Still, 700 is a bargain in comparison to the alternatives.

Default Annoying Clicking Noise Coming From Speakers

I was driving home 4/25/2015 and the music stopped and a constant clicking noise started coming from the speakers. The volume wouldn't turn it down and no music will play. The only thing that will stop the sound is turning the engine off. I found a post on this forum with instructions to remove the fuse until I can take it to the Lexus Dealer.
My LS 460 is a pre-owned 2007 just purchased in Jan 2015 without a warranty. From the looks of it, I'm screwed with a nice bill over $1,000. I've never purchase a warranty for a Toyota/Lexus vehicle because I've never had any major problems. Thank goodness I have money saved as my warranty.

I'll update you guys after I take it in this week of 27 April 2015.

When mine did that it was my amplifer. It was under Warranty and I think it was $1,700 bucks. Good luck. There are others on here that may know a cheaper fix.

Bad amp. I had the same issue and repaired at the Lexus dealership for $1100 but covered under warranty.

Wanted to add something to this thread in relation to the amp issue.

I recently purchased my 07 460L at the end of January, 2015. While researching the vehicle via MyLexus, I saw that the amp was replaced in Nov. 2014. I called the dealership who replaced the amp and the Service manager told me that the amp is under warranty for one year, and it holds true for me, even though I wasn't the owner of the vehicle when the part was replaced. So if my ML amp wishes to malfunction, ( I hope it never does), but if it does, hopefully it'll occur within the next 7 months!
