Every time connected by USB when I turn the car back on I get the audio off message. Everything in the LS is up to date with the software and same with my i-pods and i-phone.

I’m curious; can you turn on the “Connect USB device in enhanced mode” option and see if that does anything for your issue?

Thanks. Will do. Not lowered but the increased tire height fills up the wheel wells more than the stock tires. Made sure the suspension wasn't in access mode for the pics..Shop had pressure at about 40. Gonna raise it and see how it feels cuz usually higher pressure rides better with extremely low profile tires. But at 40 psi, it was pretty stiff.

If you want a quiet and soft ride, pirelli pzeros are a good choice. But the wear isn't good.

i found that mode an turned it on and the same thing happens. When I turned the car back on audio was off. I am going into the dealer tomorrow to trouble shoot with them and technical to see if we can fix it. Hopefully we will get something good. If not I can just have my iPod Via Bluetooth and no phone. But the sound is richer via USB.

darn. Was hoping that could fix things and shed some light on what this option does. Agree that USB is the only way that I know of now to get the best quality. Gl with the diagnosis!

I got excited when I found that too! Who knows maybe there is some crazy step I am missing. There are a ton of options in this vehicle.

Wow that looks good for stock height, hoping mine comes out like that when I put mine on. What tires did you use, usually I keep it at 40 psi for winter and 36 psi for spring/summer.
