Okay. I called Cory this morning and left him some voice-mail. When he hadn't called me back by early afternoon I called him again and he answered. I explained I'd heard on this Web site about him and Lexus Kearny Mesa in regards to the ECU/TRAC fixes, and wanted to schedule a time to bring mine in for them. He took my name and looked my records up in the Lexus Carlsbad database and told me he would order the TRAC replacement. He estimated a week-and-a-half for the part to arrive, then I could come in and get it replaced, and the ECU flashed with the update at the same time. So I am pleased so far. Time will tell. Lexus Carlsbad is clueless to date, so I'm at least further ahead than I was waiting for them!
Cory did mention that the ECU flash could not be reversed, that the flash could be updated only once. I'm sorry, but I work in the computer industry and a write-twice programmable ROM makes no sense to me. What happens if Lexus ever discovers it needs to fix something else in the ECU? Are all of us who have received this fix just SOL? I don't think so. At any rate I am sure I want this fix, and said so, so he's going ahead.
Cory did mention that since one of our members got satisfaction through him and put his name up here (BLACK_IS 300, I presume?) that he seems to have become the San Diego "IS 300 ECU/TRAC fix guy". He said he's had a half dozen or so people call him about getting this fix. Hey Lexus Carlsbad, I guess you guys and your owners are so rich you don't have to worry about losing customers to another county Lexus dealer, huh? Must be nice. Just not what I expected when I bought mine from you.
I'll update the board via this thread when I hear back from Cory, and after my SBM is updated. BLACK, let us know here after your work is done how it went. Hey, for that matter let us know when you'll be going in and maybe us SD folks can all do an impromptu meet there. I'll come if I'm not scheduled for something at work at that time! gmej, how's about you, cuz?
