Post OBDII - LS460/600 Configuration

Hopefully we never have to use this tool, but having it at our disposal arms with data before we take the car in for service, or DIY. The tool itself is redundant if there is nothing wrong with the car. However, when the Check Engine light appears on your dash, it will readout the culprit code. If you subscribe to the manufacturer's complementary software, it will give you the industry standard amount of labor required to correct the fault and any other pertinent data. The other port adjacent to the OBDII is for Toyota's computer link.

There seems to be a lot of references to this website for ls460 TSIB's
Pretty complete listing. I may one day copy all of the files and post them to www.scribd.com for permanence.

The following uses a Chamberlain (Sears Craftsman) rolling code opener; it may also apply to other RCOs as well. The Lexus and Chamberlain directions "separately" are ambiguous and self-serving, so these instructions merely marry the two:

There are two important sequences to follow in this procedure:

1. Pairing the car's Homelink system with the door opener's handheld remote, and...

2. Pairing the door opener with the car. It is important to perform both.


Before starting, set up a ladder to gain access to the "Learn" button on the garage door opener. No need to depress the button at this time. Also make sure the car does not obstruct the passage of the garage door, as it may be activated during this procedure. Keep children animals or other obstructions clear of the moving door's path. To avoid activating the door when pairing the handheld remote to the Homelink, pair the two a block away from your garage.

SEQUENCE I

1. No need to have engine running. Homelink is always active on Lexus cars.

2. Clear/reset the Lexus Homelink by depressing buttons 1 & 3 for 20 seconds.

3. Hold the Chamberlain remote within three inches from the LS Homelink keypad.

4. Depress and hold the desired Homelink button 1, 2 or 3. LED turns on steadily.

5. Depress and hold the Chamberlain remote keypad until the Homelink LED begins to flash rapidly. Release both.

SEQUENCE II

6. Exit car and access the door opener's "Learn" button. Briefly depress the "Learn" button until its LED turns on.

7. Within the allotted 30 second period, return to the car and depress the chosen keypad button briefly one time.

The opener's lights will flash confirming the pairing of the garage door opener, and the car's Homelink.

Test the operation the Homelink. You're done!
