Lexus LS430 Window Sticker

For those of you out there that wanted to see what the original window sticker looked like for the 2005 Lexus LS430 with the Ultra Luxury package, here it is. This window sticker also shows the additional option of Precollision System (PCS). This package added $13,570 to the cost of the base LS430.

Note: If you have a better scan of your window sticker, let me know. I'd be happy to post here. Also, if you have a window sticker of another model LS430, i'd like to post those here too.

Lexus LS430 "Check PCS" Error and TSB

Many Lexus LS owners have been asking for the TSB or TSIB related to the problem associated with the 2004-2006 Lexus LS430 Pre Collision System. I have attached a link so you can download the file and see for yourself what Lexus has posted regarding this issue.
Error Message Below RPM Gauge

"Some 2005 – 2006 model year LS 430 owners may experience a condition where the dynamic radar cruise control is inoperative, with “Check PCS” called out on the multi-information display. Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) B2056 and P1572 may also be stored. An updated cruise control computer has been made available to correct this issue." - From Lexus Technical Service Bulletin (EL012-06) Nov 9, 2006

Post a comment with your year and mileage. I'm trying to keep track of all the problems associated with this TSB in hopes of getting us all reimbursed for this costly repair!
