Tire Pressure Monitoring System Problems of Lexus RX350
Lexus RX350 owners have reported 3 problems associated with tire pressure monitoring system (under the tire category).
#1 - Tire Pressure Monitoring System problem of the 2010 Lexus RX350
The vehicle involved is a 2010 Lexus Rx350. Tire pressure sensors appear to be overly sensitive in Lexus vehicles. I own 2009 and 2010 Rx350s and both have issues with false alarms, and I was told that the dealer sees at least 20 cars a day with false alarms and they are selling nitrogen inflation gas to reduce the rate of false alarms. Although it's not very serious issue as far as direct safety is concerned, it can lead into the situation where the drivers will start ignoring the warning light that can cause dangerous conditions. If the equipment has high false positive rates, the manufacturer should address the issue, but there is no indication that it's doing one. This tire pressure monitoring system issue occurred Dec. 9, 2010.

The dealer reset the air bag sensor. Shortly thereafter, the consumer continued to experience the same air bag malfunction. Upon inspection of the vehicle, it was determined that the entire air bag system had shut down and was inoperable. Over the course of the next seven months, she continued to experience issues with the tire hazard sensors and was frequently unable to use the automatic seat adjust feature on the driver's side. Passengers also complained that they could not adjust the seat and that the seat belt felt tight and would not extend outward. The dealer sated the seat belt was caught in the passenger seat track, which caused the malfunction of the passenger seat and seat belt. Several months later, the consumer complained of steering problems, but the dealer was unable to find a problem. The consumer stated she continued to have problems with air bag light.
