I'm not sure of the compatibility to other models or years but for the RX and the IS the instructions are very similar the only difference is the color of the wires. This Instructable can also get you in the right direction if you want to put an AUX input into your vehicle.
So now that that is clear lets get started. Here is a link for a video of the final outcome of all the steps its hard to see because of the camera but it is much brighter in person. The white looks like lightning in the car at night! Wire cutters 2. Needle Nose pliers optional 3. Wire Strippers 4. Solder 5. Phillips Screwdriver 7. Small regular screwdriver. Soldering Iron Heat gun if using heat shrink First off your going to need to prepare your vehicle for service, you will want to set your parking brake and disconnect the negative of your battery.
Now that your vehicle is safe you can start to work on it, on the Lexus RX the CD player is located behind the glove box, to remove the glove box you need to open it and on the top corners there are 2 screws, remove these and shut the box then on the bottom there is a black plastic cover from the bottom of the box to the firewall it is attached by clips pull on it where it meets the glove box until it comes off then pull it away from the firewall to remove it, then there are 2 10mm bolts on the bottom corners of the box remove them and open the box up again, it is also held in by clips pull on the plastic around the top that forms a cover around the CD opening.
The box should now be free gently lower it and remove the wire connector from it's holder on top of the box, I think it is for the airbag or seat belt light so I would not unplug it. Set the box somewhere safe as it scratches very easy.
Now that the glove box is removed you can get to the CD player, if you look at the picture you will see it has 2 bolts on the right side it is the same on the left there just wasn't enough room for a photo. You will want to use a 12mm wrench to remove these while removing the last bolt hold the CD Player up with your other hand, it is misleading in its appearance it is quite heavy.
Gently lower it to the floor and disconnect the plug by pushing in the clip on the top of the connector and pulling, it is a pretty tight fit so it takes some pulling, then use a screwdriver to push the retainer clip from the bottom out of its holder on the back of the player.
Now you can set aside the CD player. To prepare your cord you will want to cut off the RCA plugs and separate the wires a little, then strip about and inch or two off of each end where the plugs were, then it should have an insulated wire and strands wrapping around the insulated wire twist all the strands together and then strip some insulation off the inner wire and twist those strands together so now you should have 2 sets of wire coming from where the RCA Plug was for a total of 4 separate strands from the cord as seen in the picture.
Then you have 2 options, Option 1: Make a bare section on the wires and then make a hole in the strands to pass another wire through, the order of the wires needs to be as follows black, green, red, yellow. The bare wires of the audio cord should go to the black and red wires and the insulated wire should go to the green and yellow like the picture.
Just make sure they alternate like the picture. Attach the wires by pushing them through the hole in the strands and then wrap them around the stock wires and solder connections.Quick Links.

The Lexus Es has had a serious hesitation problem since delivery in March I have had it in for service several times before the accident complaining about this problem. After contacting Lexus direct, they came out to test drive the auto.
I was contacted several days later and was told that my Lexus has no problem. Since this problem still exists, I took the car back in for service on may 26th, and again was told that my car had already received a transmission computer update and their final words were "vehicle is operating as designed at this time".
This car still has the problem. While shifting the transmission had a ten minute delay before responding, and the transmission jerked uncontrollably. Driver was able to maintain control of the vehicle, and drove it to the dealer. Mechanic determined that the vehicle was operating as designed.
Lexus RX300 Aux In
I have now sent my car in for service twice to Lexus of orlando about unexpected surging of the vehicle and vehicle hesitation when the accelerator is pressed. This is an intermittent and dangerous problem, as I do not know when it will occur. When it does occur the upshift is harsh, the downshift delayed as if the transmission is confused about the driver's intention, and there is pronounced hesitation when the accelerator is pressed. This lack of responsiveness leaves both the vehicle and passengers exposed to accident and injury.
On my first visit, I was told the vehicle computer would be reset, as the vehicle learns your driving style in the first 30 or so miles, and I must have driven the vehicle harshly. This so called reset did nothing to fix the problem; less than a week later, I narrowly escaped a crash after my car hesitated while crossing an intersection.
I promptly returned the vehicle to the dealer for service. Upon completion of the second service, which included a drive with the technician, Lexus service now says these problems are inherent to the model and they can't fix them.
In addition, I am aware that numerous owners frequently complain of hesitation and surging in, and models and many complaints over of the same nature have been filed with the NHTSA.
This statement is to issue notice that I am not satisfied, and the problem has not been fixed. On two separate occasions, I have taken my Lexus Es in for service to repair a defective transmission.
I have 23, miles on my vehicle and the transmission is shifting erratically and hesitating. It is causing unsafe driving conditions. Lexus denies any responsibility to fix the problem.
Ongoing and worsening lack of accelleration predictability. Car will hesitate especially when power is required such as merging traffic, left turns, etc. Car will not accelerate from stop at times. Engines revs but transmission will not catch. Several near accidents at stop signs and traffic lights.
Transmission shifts very rough and makes car steer erratically. Car will be parked until repaired.Check if this part fits your vehicle. Store category. Sign Up Now! You may also like. Product Description. Payment Shipping Contact us warranty returns and terms Feedback Payment.

Lexus Auxiliary Input Adapters
It took 7 minutes to install this in my Tacoma. Very, very easy install. Would I buy it again, yes Yomikoo Auxillary Adapter, Car Radio 3. I freakin love this thing. Recently upgraded to iPhone X and my old pioneer head unit was not compatible.
I put stock back in and bought this aux adapter with the aux 3. This is better than a fm transmitter! Installed in Camry! Love listening to my playlists in the car. I needed this for my Lexus RX so that I could listen to music directly through my phone to my car.
They connected through my 'AM' selection since I don't use that one. Works great, so happy I bought this. Easy install and works like a charm. I purchased another brand and installed into a Jeep Liberty. That unit was flawed volume control. With this model volume is fully controllable with the Radio knob,and charges my IPhone 5S too! Very Happy. Where has this been all my life.
