Using your audio system: some basics
This section describes some of the basic features of the Lexus
audio system. Some information may not pertain to your
system.
Your audio system works when the ignition key is in the “ACC”
or “ON” position.
20R043a
NOTICE
To prevent the battery from being discharged, do not
leave the car audio on longer than necessary when the
engine is not running.
(a) Turning the system on and off
Push the “MUTE” button to decrease the volume
momentarily.
To return to its original volume, push the same button again.
When the audio system is turned on, the mute is always off
regardless of the previous mode.
20R011
Push this knob to turn the audio system on and off. Turn
this knob to adjust the volume.
The system turns on in the last mode used.
20R012b
Push the “AM”, “FM1/2”, “TAPE” or “CD” button to turn on
that mode. The selected mode turns on directly.
Push these buttons if you want to switch from one mode to
another.
20R057
The applicable functions are shown in the lowest part of
the display. Push the switch just below to turn on each
function.
If the tape or disc is not set, the cassette player or compact disc
player does not turn on.
You can turn off the cassette player by ejecting the cassette
tape. If the audio system was previously off, then the entire
audio system will be turned off when you eject the cassette
tape. If another function was previously playing, it will come on
again.
2003 RX300 from Aug. 02’ Prod. (OM48442U)
(b) Brightness buttons
Keep in mind that if you are listening to a stereo recording or
broadcast, changing the right/left balance will increase the
volume of one group of sounds while decreasing the volume
of another.

Brighten
The buttons adjust the brightness of the display. Each
time you push the button on the “ ” side, the display
becomes bright. Each time you push the button on the “ ”
side, the display becomes dark.
Each time you push the sound control knob, the display
changes as in the following. To adjust the tone and
balance, turn the knob.
(c) Tone and balance
BAS: Adjusts low–pitched tones.
How good an audio program sounds to you is largely
determined by the mix of the treble, mid–range, and bass
levels. In fact, different kinds of music and vocal programs
usually sound better with different mixes of treble, mid–range,
and bass.
MId: Adjusts mid–pitched tones.
A good balance of the left and right stereo channels and of the
front and rear sound levels is also important.
BAL: Adjusts the sound balance between the right and left
speakers.
TRE: Adjusts high–pitched tones.
FAd: Adjusts the sound balance between the front and rear
speakers.
(d) Your radio antenna
(e) Your cassette player
The antenna automatically extends when the radio and ignition
are turned on and retracts when either is turned off.
When you insert a cassette, the exposed tape should face to
the right.
CAUTION
NOTICE
Before extending the antenna, confirm that no one is
close enough to get injured.
Do not oil any part of the cassette player, and do not
insert anything except a cassette tape into the slot.
NOTICE
To prevent damage to the antenna, make sure it is
retracted before driving your vehicle through an
automatic car wash.
When cleaning the inside of the left quarter window,
be careful not to scratch or damage the wire antenna.
Putting a window tint (especially, conductive or
metallic type) on the left quarter window may affect
the reception of radio or mobile telephone. For the
installation of the window tint, consult with your
Lexus dealer.

Car audio system operating hints
NOTICE
To ensure correct audio system operations:
Be careful not to spill beverages over the audio
system.
Do not put anything other than a cassette tape or
compact disc magazine into the tape slot or changer.
The use of a cellular phone inside or near the vehicle
may cause a noise from the speakers of the audio
system which you are listening to. However, this
does not indicate a malfunction.
2003 RX300 from Aug. 02’ Prod. (OM48442U)
Radio reception
AM
Usually, the problem with radio reception does not mean there
is a problem with your radio – it is just the normal result of
conditions outside the vehicle.
Fading – AM broadcasts are reflected by the upper
atmosphere – especially at night. These reflected signals can
interfere with those received directly from the radio station,
causing the radio station to sound alternately strong and weak.
For example, nearby buildings and terrain can interfere with
FM reception. Power lines or telephone wires can interfere
with AM signals. And of course, radio signals have a limited
range. The farther you are from a station, the weaker its signal
will be. In addition, reception conditions change constantly as
your vehicle moves.
Station interference – When a reflected signal and a signal
received directly from a radio station are very nearly the same
frequency, they can interfere with each other, making it difficult
to hear the broadcast.
Here are some common reception problems that probably do
not indicate a problem with your radio:
Static – AM is easily affected by external sources of electrical
noise, such as high tension power lines, lightening, or electrical
motors. This results in static.
FM
Caring for your cassette player and tapes
Fading and drifting stations – Generally, the effective range
of FM is about 40 km (25 miles). Once outside this range, you
may notice fading and drifting, which increase with the distance
from the radio transmitter. They are often accompanied by
distortion.
For the best performance for your cassette player and tapes:
Multi–path – FM signals are reflective, making it possible for
two signals to reach your antenna at the same time. If this
happens, the signals will cancel each other out, causing a
momentary flutter or loss of reception.
Static and fluttering – These occur when signals are blocked
by buildings, trees, or other large objects. Increasing the bass
level may reduce static and fluttering.
Station swapping – If the FM signal you are listening to is
interrupted or weakened, and there is another strong station
nearby on the FM band, your radio may tune in the second
station until the original signal can be picked up again.
Clean the tape head and other parts regularly.
A dirty tape head or tape path can decrease sound quality
and tangle your cassette tapes. The easiest way to clean
them is by using a cleaning tape. (A wet type is
recommended.)
Use high–quality cassettes:
Low–quality cassette tapes can cause many problems,
including poor sound, inconsistent playing speed, and
constant auto–reversing. They can also get stuck or tangled
in the cassette player.
Do not use a cassette if it has been damaged or tangled or
if its label is peeling off.
Do not leave a cassette in the player if you are not listening
to it, especially if it is hot outside.
Store cassettes in their cases and out of direct sunlight.
Avoid using cassettes with a total playing time longer than
100 minutes (50 minutes per side). The tape used in these
cassettes is thin and could get stuck or tangled in the
cassette player.
20L037
Caring for your compact disc player and discs
Your compact disc player is intended for use with 12 cm (4.7
in.) discs only.
Extremely high temperature can keep your compact disc
player from working. On hot days, use air conditioning to
cool the vehicle interior before you listen to a disc.
Bumpy roads or other vibrations may make your compact
disc player skip.
If moisture gets into your compact disc player, you may not
hear any sound even though your compact disc player
appears to be working. Remove the magazine from the
player and wait until it dries.
Use only compact discs marked as shown above. The
following products may not be playable on your compact
disc player.
Copy–protected CD
CD–R (CD–Recordable)
CD–RW (CD–Re–writable)
CD–ROM
CAUTION
Compact disc players use an invisible laser beam which
could cause hazardous radiation exposure if directed
outside the unit. Be sure to operate the player correctly.

Low quality discs
To prevent damage to the player or changer, do not use
special shaped, low quality or labeled discs such as
those shown in the illustrations.
20L038
Correct
Wrong
Handle compact discs carefully, especially when you set
them into the magazine. Hold them on the edge and do not
bend them. Avoid getting fingerprints on them, particularly
on the shiny side.
20L039
To clean a compact disc: Wipe it with a soft, lint–free cloth
that has been dampened with water. Wipe in a straight line
from the center to the edge of the disc (not in a circle). Do not
use a conventional record cleaner or anti–static device.
Dirt, scrapes, warping, pin holes, or other disc damage
could cause the player to skip or to repeat a section of a
track. (To see a pin hole, hold the disc up to the light.)
