Just did this mod and found it quite impressive however, I was wondering what to set the P2, W, and L at as well? Pls advise, thanks! Sounds better so far though

I also learned that for a 99 gs3, you can unlock all doors if you stick in your key and turn it to the right twice.

Hey JSmooth,

I just tried the Audio Mod for my 99 gs 300.. and it worked pretty well. There is a noticeable difference in the base, which adds a little edge to the overall system.

These were my mods:

P1- 5-7
P2- 5-7
L - 0-2

F- 1-3
R- 1-3
W- 1-3

It works well for me, or it could have been getting sick of constantly turning on and off the car. Either way, try it.. Props to Jesod!

To move the steering wheel and extra 1/2in to 1inch in any directions....click the button 8 times in the direction you want it to move it
I started to adjust my steering wheel and realized... it's not moving upwards anymore. Even when I take the key out , it retracts but doesn't move up. Think its a bad motor?

I remember reading about the audio hack when I first got my 98 GS400, but never tried it. Does anyone know if it will work for the nak system? I also have a jl w6 so all I want to do it get more clarity out of my speakers instead of just bass from the stock sub (which is now disabled pretty much).

Default Interesting Door Lock Feature

This might be mentioned elsewhere, if so, I apologize in advance.

A sure fire way to tell if one of your door lock solenoids is starting to give up the ghost; When you are walking away from your car and you hit the door lock button on the key fob, you hear the door lock solenoids click and the lights flash. If you do this and you hear the locks click and nothing else, it means one of the doors is not locked. If you manually lock the door with the failed solenoid, the lights flash when you push the key fob button.

My car started not flashing the lights when I locked it a while ago, I wondered about it but never thought it was a problem until someone opened up one of the rear doors after I locked it.
