Yikes! Times like this, I'm glad to live in no-so-hot Oregon. It seems like Toyota/Lexus had some issues with their dashboards in the mid to late '00's. This almost sounds similar to the "sticky"...

This is interesting because I had a similar problem when purchasing a key fob off of Ebay for my 1997 ES 300. I've purchased two of these. The first one I believe was a HYQ1512P (same as yours) and...

I recently installed the same KYB struts in my '00 ES. Having owned two of these cars, I will say the "glide" is still about the same, the ride is just a lot harsher over bumps. I really don't...

Wowza, that tint is pretty gangsta. You'd get pulled over in a heartbeat where I live and slapped with a hefty ticket. Nevertheless, it looks really nice with the silver paint!

If I can find an OEM part for not much more $ than aftermarket, I usually will get it. This part probably isn't that critical, but it's always nice to have the reassurance and satisfaction of an OEM...

This reminds me of replacing the rear bumper cover on my '97 a few years back. What a PITA! Definineltly a 2-man job. I could not believe that amount of dirt/debris/gunk that fell out of there, along...

Thanks for the reassurance guys! Normally I do more thorough research before posting a topic, but I just don't remember my old '97 ever doing this. Maybe it's just been too long lol

Question Delayed gear shifting in early mornings?

I've noticed a strange/unique issue with my 2000 ES during my first initial driving periods each morning. For some reason when I jump in my ES each morning (engine cold) and drive off, the car seems...

Looks great! I have the same year and color combo, but mine isn't a Platinum. I think New Millennium Silver on Black Leather is the slickest and most timeless color combo the ES3 ever had. Some...

Lol, to be honest, some of the best posts/threads in the ES section of this forum come from the mid to late 2000's, when these cars still had some value and a fan following. Hopefully the OP's pick...

I've owned two of these cars, a '97 and an '00. I always run what ever is the cheapest octane 87. Never a problem. Gas is already almost $4 a gallon for the cheap stuff where I live!

Wow, those look great on there. I normally would think 18's are too big on the 3ES but those look really nice. Almost looks 'factory' with the L emblems!

Just yesterday, my 2000 ES abruptly started flashing a 'check engine' light and solid 'TRAC OFF' light and running incredibly rough. I put a code reader on it and it read "P0306 Cylinder 6...

Very clean car! Those wheels are definitely the '97-'99 15" style( I've owned both a '97 and currently have a '00). I had no idea the '00-'01's came without a moonroof?! I've only seen no moonroof on...

Woo hoo! Problem seems to be solved! Drove the car about 500 feet and the problem seems to be solved. ABS Pulsation is back in the peddle and the lights stopped blinking!

Thanks Lexus2000. Can't believe that part is over $200! I may have to just live with the blinking. The lame thing is, the sensor is actually fine. Pretty sure just the wire is damaged.
