Exactly. Way easier. Adding fluid while running is a crapshoot.

Hi lobux, was very glad to find this post, thanks. I also came across other info on the web which suggests it should be pins 4 and 13 (not 4 and 14).

For example, the following 2 links relating to an ISF indicate that pins 4 and 14 are not for checking transmission temp and he refers to his second video where he states it is pins 4 and 13 to check that (This is stated in his video descriptions, not the videos themselves):

And while this isn't for an ISF, it is a Lexus vehicle where it is also written as pins 4 and 13 to check transmission temp (This can be found a little past half way down the page where Post #2 starts, after the first photo of Post #2):

Just want to make sure I get this right, thanks
P.S. If this question has been covered in another post apologies in advance (I must admit I didn't go through all the posts).

Long story short it's a typo. The diagram should point to 4 and 13. I know you didn't read the whole thing but FWIW it's been discussed in this thread. It kills me that the title of this thread states "See #99 for level set instructions," yet the image on post 99 still includes the typo. This is misleading for people without techstream and it should be corrected. Although I will say if you're doing this procedure yourself it's your responsibility to read this entire thread before blindly following the instructions on #99.

Starfire77 What kind of Lexus are you changing the trans fluid on? Maybe we can tell you what pins you need to connect or at least point you to a forum where people would know more about your model.

Thanks for your reply ZDCATC. Will read all the posts when I next get a chance.

I’m changing fluid on 2009 Lexus ISF. I’m assuming the instructions in post #99 applies to ISF? In which case I can follow it with the one correction you mentioned about pin no. being 4 and 13?
Any other typos in the instructions?
Thanks again ZDCATC

Yes this is an IS F forum and the instructions will work except use 4 and 13. If you're ever unsure about what forum you end up on while searching clublexus just scroll up to the top and you'll be able to see which model's forum you're in

It never ceases to amaze me how people who won't spend $1k a year for subscription to TIS complain about me doing this and posting helpful information that LEXUS got wrong.

My good friend MS PAINT and I fixed the Lexus error. See post 99 for the correct information, and the post above for the correct information. God help me if some other fool on the internet linked to the previous graphic. At least it won't kill your ECM to short the pins together.

Oh, and if you subscribed to TIS, you would find that the error I reported to Lexus has been fixed and the same graphic now has the correct 4 and 13 diagram in it.
