Important How To Get Owner's Manual and Tech Info Online

You can download the owner's manual on PDF Files as well as other info by going to this url.

Lexus Owners


Register with your email addy and your car's VIN and you will get access to the information. The site will recognize your car model by the VIN.

Another good site is

http://techinfo.lexus.com/

There you can pay to download shop manuals, and other tech info. You can subscribe for different terms and rates. 24 hrs access costs $10.00 and you should be able to download everything you need during that time. Any Technical Service Bulletins should also be on this site.

I got over 400 documents there for the shop manual.

If anyone has anything to add to the list, please feel free.

Any idea why this won't accept my VIN here in Hawaii?

That's strange. Are you sure there isn't a 0 that should be a O, etc?

I tried it three times with no luck. The web site even says the continental 48 states. Strange.

Aloha,

Good grief. Go on AutoTader.com and get a VIN from a new IS that's being advertised and use that. I did that to access IS300.

Go on Auto Trader and find any IS of the same year. Use the VIN from the ad.

So does that site have the entire service manual online?
I would register but it says only for US customers only...

If you register your car on the lexus.com website, you can order an owners manual for FREE. Lexus will send you one for free win you sign up with your VIN. I did it with my IS300 and for my new IS350.
