    Rotating 5th wheel idea...overkill?

    So the one time my wife gets behind the wheel, there's a flat on the front pass side. Totally flat, I would guess. She doesn't notice it, or the handling issues, and drives it 3/4 mile over gravel/rocks to where I'm located. Tire, wheel, all trashed. Of course, I have about 25k on the...

    SOLD  Escape Gear seat covers, grey, great condition

    Front seats with armrest and console covers. Less than a year old, very lightly used. These were on my '05 LX, but pretty sure they also work for the same years on LCs (check Equipt Expedition website for correct model years). I may still have the nifty duffel bag for them somewhere. Best offer.

    When door is shut, door ajar light (and related lights: OH dome, door pocket) will sometimes turn on...really pulling in hard on door will usually turn back off, but eventually - for example, if I just lean against door - it will revert back to on. Is there a sensor or contact that can be...

    pulled CD changer - making console storage space useful, anyone?

    We redid the audio, pulled the PO's CD changer mounted nside the center console...lots of nice space in there, but there's a few openings, esp towards the front, where small items might disappear. I was thinking of just cutting a small piece of auto carpeting or machine mat and stuffing down...

    solved heating prob. 05 LX: mis-wired harness

    Months ago I posted a note about my heat controls going wonky. Either too hot (mid 80s) or A/C-level cold, no in-between. I cleaned the cabin air sensor as noted in other posts here, no change. Running out of patience, I took it too my local mechanic who ran a scan for me as a favor. It...

    turn signal in rapid mode after new wiring (LX470, '05)

    New TJM bumper, so the factory-supplied fog & running/turn blinker lights needed to be wired in. They work - you bet they work -they run 2 or 3X more rapidly than the original turn signal did. Same on emerg flashers. Otherwise all good. I guess I'm fine with this (hopefully still legal)...

    TJM front bumper on 470: hating on nylon nuts, harness question, oem bumper interest?

    Wrapping up TJM install. So far OK, but oh man I have the WRONG touch when it comes to the supplied nylon locking nuts. I have developed a real dislike - whats' wrong with a simple lock washer, some lock tite....? Two trips to hardware store to buy replacement bolts. Loose fitted the bumper...

    Battery issue? Or loose connection?

    Noticed some efflorescence on the pos post of battery. Its' been working fine, so I had to go do something. Scrubbed the post clean with a toothbrush + water/baking soda to neutralize. I gave the area a lite rinse with water, maybe a quart. Vehicle then would not start. I dried everything...

    unable to adjust cabin heat (Nav)

    Can't figure out what's causing my cabin heat to not adjust +/-. Whether I set the cabin temp at 75 or 68, it all ends up getting too hot eventually, like it was set to max. Once you get down to 65 deg, the A/C (I believe) kicks in and displays "maxCold" (I have the Nav), and cools it down...

    heating adjustment out of whack

    Can't figure out what's causing my cabin heat to not adjust +/-. Whether I set the cabin temp at 75 or 68, it all ends up getting too hot eventually, like it was set to max. Once you get down to 65, the A/C (I believe) kicks in. So it's either one or the other (I have the Nav display)

    2005 LX transmission fluid q's

    Finishing up baselining my fluids...unless I'm totally missing something, this is a sealed transmission (?), no dipstick/fill tube. In all the threads on MUD about draining/refilling, pulling the pan, flushing (or not flushing), etc., there seems to be little mention of this "feature". Is this...
